A Family Affair: Truth in Lies (Truth in Lies, Book 1) by [Campisi, Mary]
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. . . 
Note: This book contains sexual content and profanity. While the author believes these situations are handled in good taste, she acknowledges some readers will choose to pass on this book.

This book was different.  An emotional story.   I liked the route that it took and felt it was well done. The main characters were really good.  It also threw a few curve balls as well as having a moment or two that was predictable.  Lily was one of those curve balls but a really good one.  Well played out and the whole story was emotional with really good characters to it.  Even Christine's self centered, controlling mother was something else as she tried to be bigger than life. 
And Uncle Harry?  Now there is a character, who I liked even though he undervalued the goodness in him.  Yes, he was also a rascal and recognized his less than stellar qualities (he was a hound dog when it came to women) but he also wasn't all bad either.
