An Unconventional Family by Roberta Bombonato
Marvin Costa, alias Azrael, has had vengeance on the brain for nearly two decades. Carmen Moreno has invested one of those decades in a relationship with him that often seems one sided. Keiko Akashimi joins the two when her family became victims of a mob hit in which she barely escaped with her life. What do they all have in common? Fate has thrown them together against all odds and after an epic, action-packed adventure filled with bloodshed and heartache they finally become: AN UNCONVENTIONAL FAMILY
About The Author
Roberta Bombonato has been hearing characters in her head since she was born, but only began writing down their stories since 2007. They can be a rowdy bunch and only leave her alone when the book is finished. She calls herself a basket-case, weaving stories with twisted pain and unconditional love.
Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Roberta moved to the United States at the age of 11 and became a U.S. Citizen. She currently resides in fabulous, sunny Florida with her disabled veteran husband, two loving dogs, Kent and Pup, one eccentric parrot, Apollo, and two Guinea pids to keep him company.
In 2009, she released her first book AN UNCONVENTIONAL FAMILY. It received an honorable mention is the 2009’s Hollywood Book Festival in the Wild Card category.
There was a period of 10 years in which she was plagued with writer’s block. The Ketogenic diet has helped her get back in the game, stronger than ever. She even became a certified Keto and Fasting Coach through Dr. Berg. She helps clients lose weight and feel great, like she does. She documents her weight-loss journey on Instagram @nerdyketonian.

Redemption is a common theme in her extremely different stories. There is something so beautiful about a very LARGE character arch. Triggers evoke such emotion and her characters find a way of concealing the hurt because vulnerability is weakness. The power lies in change.
Roberta vows to keep writing her character’s stories even if they don’t follow the regular formulas of the writing world. She believes that in order to do them justice, they will not be put inside a conventional box. This is where pushing the envelope will result in unpredictability.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Roberta has done it again; I really enjoyed the first book
in her series The Family Tree. I can only say that Roberta has to live an
amazing life in her imagination, not saying she does not live an amazing life
all around. Oh, my goodness her writing style is amazing, and An Unconventional
Family has shown her talent beyond my expectations for sure. I have read all of
her books so far and the first book in this series has made me a lifetime
reader for sure.
As with all of Roberta’s books, I have felt part of the
stories. In addition, this book is not any different the plot will pull you
right in and you will become part of the story as if you are there. This book is
full of action, adventure, drama, and romance. Not a book you are going to want
to miss picking up to read.
I would like to thank Roberta for a copy of An Unconventional
Family in exchange for my honest review.
