Lacey Lancaster has had it with men. Since she divorced her lying, cheating husband, she has tried to live her life on her own terms but when her sexy neighbor’s cat decides to get her purebred Abyssinian cat pregnant, well let’s just say Lacey’s life just got interesting. The only question is will she let herself fall in love with a man who may be her prince charming?

Debbie Macomber does wonderful heartfelt stories about real people who experience real problems. In FAMILY AFFAIR, the reader is introduced to Lacey, her cat Cleo and her neighbor Jack who has a tomcat named dog. It is full of predictable plot twists but the story charms you as you find yourself falling for these two characters and their respective pets. This was a novella length story so if you are looking for one of Ms. Macomber’s stories, this isn’t it. This is a perfect morsel to enjoy on a lazy afternoon.

I do have to admit, this wasn’t my favorite Debbie Macomber story but it also wasn’t the worst book either. If you go into this book expecting something other than that, then you will be disappointed. The characters are well defined, the story moves along nicely and the ending ties up in a predictable bow. Ms. Macomber is a master at creating enjoyable, emotional stories to wrap their way around a reader’s heart. FAMILY AFFAIR is a light hearted enjoyable read that will charm the reader from the first page to the last. With an added bonus story to wet the reader’s imagination, FAMILY AFFAIR is one book you get ‘two for the price of 1’. The other stories showcased were ’The Bet’ and a glimpse into other Debbie Macomber books which some I never read before so that got me adding to my wish list.

A FAMILY AFFAIR is a story that will give you an entertaining read from start to finish. I look forward to seeing what else this author has up her sleeve in the future.
