    Rewarding reading; great Job, Marilyn!

    My intention in reviewing this book is to recommend it to other readers like myself -- as opposed to attempting a critique of the Author's work.

    So glad I didn't take literally the negative remarks, although I appreciate the warning about the abrupt ending by 'anonymous,' a reviewer from September 30, 2011. Being prepared for 'the worst,' I was not in any way disappointed.

    For those in the 'I-can't-stand-any-typographical-errors' camp, I admit there are several. Yes, I noticed them; no, they did not deter me nor detract from the story. Those things can be cleaned up quite easily.

    That's out of the way, then.

    Now, let me say "A Family Affair" by Marilyn McPherson contains all the elements that I enjoy in a book - romance and mystery, tenderness and suspense, intrigue and conflict, GREAT twists-and-turns, a slowly-awakening character development, and yes -- just the right touch of resolution to permit that 'happily-ever-after' feeling to flow ....

    Yes, a "5-star" book in my view! Hope to see more by this Author.

    :)

    The ending was a bit rushed. The middle kept you guessing. The begining was catching. Over all, good book.

    Good book

    This is a good book! It is worth reading. The story ends differently. Other comments have been about typos, but this book was written in Austrailia or Britian. Some of the spelling is different than American English.

    Ended to soon...

    I thought this was a great book, by an amazing author. But the book ended way too soon. We were just getting to the conclusion of the story when it abruptly ended. There was no resolution of the main characters, and no final battle with the villian of this piece. I would have liked to see the main characters hash out their problems, and tied in a nice little bow. And everything explained. I would recommend anyone to read this book, but don't be upset by the ending, because I warned you! :)

    Ummmmm...........

    I got this based on the review from the top, and I am so mad I didn't look down lower. This book is not at all what I expected, and as such, I did NOT like this book. Seriously, a father dating his daughter? A sick story if you ask me.

    OMG

    I Loved this book!! I read it in one day. Once i picked it up. I couldnt put it down. The end could of been a little more detailed, but personally i was hooked. I would def recommemd this book. Its short but its sooo good ! And its free ! I was expecting it to be dull & boring. So it goes to show free books are just as good or maybe better than the ones you actually have to pay for. =)

    Good book

    I really liked this book. It held me in suspense until the end. I was glad the two potential lovers never made love. The girl has morals which is unfortunately lacking in romance books now days. This proves you can write a good romance story without illicit sex in the first chapter. The author should have finished the story tho and put the murderer and kidnaper both in jail where they belong.

    Good read

    I really liked this book. I like the plot and and really like that it kept me reading it until the last page. I wasn't crazy about the way it tied everything together into the space of a single page, i think because I just didn't want it to end so abruptly. But it was stil a great read.

    Wish it was longer

    I wish it could have been longer, or at maybe a second book because the ending was rushed and I would have liked to see what happened next with Elle and Tom.

    Beyond awful!!!!!

    Where to start? I feel as though my 2nd grader could have written this. It felt choppy. And the ending was so rushed you feel as though even the author just wanted to be done with the whole thing. Do not waste your time!! Since i had to give at least 1 star to write this review there it is, but i would much rather have given it 0 stars.

    Fustrated!!!

    I absolutly love this book, but it left me hanging. I wantto know more, what happened next, is there a happily everr after or does everything fall apart. I have to say though that it was a truely gripping story; that had me sucked in feom rhe beginning to the end! I highly recommend that you pick up this book.
