July 30, 2012 By Perkinston, MS
This review is from: A Family Affair (Kindle Edition) The storyline and the characters were well developed, but the unnecessary
profanity and explicit sexual encounters were inappropriate. Had I known the book had so much of this inappropriate material I
would not have purchased it!

OH)
This review is from: A Family Affair (Mass Market Paperback) In A Family Affair, we watch Christine, a successful lawyer who
feels compelled to confront her late father's mistress, a woman she is prepared to loathe. Instead, what she finds in Magdalena
turns her well-ordered life upside down. Campisi's use of contrast in both characterization and plot creates a wonderful tension
that is nothing short of masterful. Note to the author: I'll be disppointed if I don't hear more about the warm and wonderful folks
in Magdalena, especially Miriam, my favorite.

Not a fan of the story....but one of the author, sometimes, October 3, 2011 By avidreader
This review is from: A Family Affair (Kindle Edition) There was no problem with the style of writing, but seriously... Miriam was
like the saint in the book and the heroine's father the misunderstood elder son who deserved happiness. And unless there are
some "serious" issues with parents and children (which don't come across as such, I know those who are much worse), a child
typically doesn't question a more familial connection with the "other woman" over her mother because she has a simpler life,
and if she does surely it would take longer than 2 visits. The only character that I believe was true to form was Nate, the hero.
Real emotions. Real expressions. He might have had illusions of his own father, but Miriam's side thoughts about the type of
man the father was, wasn't sound enough. The relationship with another woman's husband shouldn't have been more fulfilling
than wanting something of her own. I just don't see how anyone, fact or fiction, could justify accepting grains of love and life.
More self-love, in my opinion would...
