Mary Campisi: A family affair

When Christine Blacksworth's larger-than-life father is killed on an icy road in Magdalena, New York, a hundred miles from the 'getaway' cabin he visited every month, she discovers a secret that threatens everything she's always held to be true. Her father has another family which includes a mistress and a daughter. Determined to uncover the truth behind her father's secret life, Christine heads to Magdalena, prepared to hate the people who have caused her to question everything she thought she knew about her father. But what she finds is a woman who understands her, a half sister who cherishes her, and a man who could love her if she'll let him. The longer she's around them, the more she questions which family is the real one.

An easy read. Initially, I thought there would be more of a mystery, but actually the storyline turned out to be very predictable. It was a relaxing, un-demanding read on the roads; ideal, when you've got an ipod/iphone and can only spare a couple of minutes at a time.
