To sum up my thoughts on this book, I will just say that this was just an okay 3rd book in the Good Things series. For those that didn't read book #2, Table Manners, I wouldn't read frther than this since everything will be a spoiler to you. At the end of Table Manners Deidre McIntosh finds out that she is pregnant and becomes newly engaged to her boyfriend Kevin. The book ended with things seemingly settled with Kevin's sister Marla and his god daughter Claire.

Way too many errors.

Nothing worse than a book with grammatical/spelling errors. The really unfortunate part is that I would have really enjoyed this book without them. The storyline drew me in but I have a difficult time getting past errors in a published book. Invest in spell check or a proof reader.
Family Room is a fitting end to Deidre McIntosh's story, although a significant portion of the book is really about ten-year-old Claire. The story itself is fairly predictable, but in a comforting "that's how this will work out" closure way. In real life, you have consequences, sometimes obvious ones, but you go ahead anyway. Same in the this world of filthy rich Seattle society.

This was the final book in the trilogy and was self-published, and I suppose the lesson learned about that is, if you

I thoroughly enjoyed Mia King's trilogy of stories starring Deirdre McIntosh: Good Things, Table Manners & Family Room. It was a delightful, meaningful series that feature characters you'll love as well as love not to love, that contains wisdom about what really matters most in life, including love, forgiveness and redemption. This is near perfect chick lit that will leave you feeling satisfied and inspired.

That being said, it is obvious that Family Room was self-published because I am an editor

(2-1/2 stars) I patiently waited for book #3 as I did with book #2, and again I was disappointed that it lacked the wit and humor that entertained me in #1 of the series. Needed a lot of proofreading and editing! Aside from the grammatical and spelling errors, the story needed streamlining and a more developed ending. I seem to be reading a trend of books that tend to be repetitive. Are books required to be over 300 pages so page fillers are needed?

The story was predictable fluffy chick lit.

Mia Kin is good. This is my first time reading her book and I am pleasantly surprised. I liked the characters very much Down-to-earth Deidre, Naughty Nick and Maleficent Marla to mention a few, each character had some depth. I loved the storyline and Mia Kin conversational way of writing. I foresee this novel being made into a movie.

I enjoyed the book but not as much as the previous ones. I felt like the ending of the book could have been better.

Could not wait for the end

I enjoyed this book a lot. From the past reviews I read people complained about the typos. To me it didn't make a difference. The book was very emotional

5 star book & I'd love to read the other ones by this author, but $10/book is outrageous. Great writing & wonderful characters though. I really enjoyed it. ...more

I adored the story. however, I read Kindle copy and it needed editing. I am not use to that with a Mia King novel. Grand story.
