This is one of the best books I've read in a long time, and I don't know what took me so long to read it! I'm so glad I already purchased the next two books, The Family Business 2 and To Paris With Love.
I have never had spoilers in my reviews and won't start now, so this will be kind of vague. The kids seem superficial. Paris the youngest child was a party girl then switched to be the family savior. No, that didn't work well with me. Her Twin brother Rio used as a family pawn who does that? Jr, the only child not named after a city, was very limited in the story. London, the oldest daughter and forth in order, flip flopped between being strong independent to a damsel in distress. Harris is London's husband and family lawyer and thinks he is the most vital member of the family. Vegas, the next to oldest son, is the one everyone assumes will run the family one day. Seemed to be away on family business and as such was mentioned a lot but made no impact in book. The explanation for his absence didn't match the flow of book as was it portrayed rending him a useless character. Last but not least, Orlando seemed to have all in order but was a big kid with money. I wanted to see more from the mother, Chippy. Again her part in the story was way too vague and I was left feeling like "who is this woman?"
With the questions asked in the back of the book it tends to lead that there will be a part two and they tend to address some of the open ends. I am undecided if I will continue to read. I'd like to hear more of Vegas' story. Wide open paternities and a few unanswered questions may lead me to give it one more try.

Carl Weber has penned a phenomenal tale of the ties that truly bind this family that boasts of a love, loyalty, dedication, all the while aligned with deception and secrets galore. The Family Business is a vivid rendition of a family soap opera complete with fascinating characters and spellbinding scenes filled with mind tingling suspense. Mr. Weber revealed a different flavorful facet of his incredible creative skills that will mos def leave a delicious impression. I dreaded the ending because a book junkie was fiending for `just a lil mo'...real talk. This read was sooo mesmerizing I wanted my whole story, but I guess I'll have to wait for his next installation. There were quite a few questions left unanswered, which only piques my curiosity that much more and I'm quite sure that this is Mr. Weber's agenda! Magnificent job! 4.88*****
