    Very repetitive

    I expected much better from Margot Early. The story itself would be OK, but the same feelings and thoughts are repeated multiple times - not even in new ways - and too much detail goes into things like brand names, which adds nothing to the story and slows down the reading. Too much time is spent on characters and situations that go nowhere, while almost no time is spent on integral parts of the plot. I found myself hoping the characters would improve, but they did not grow or learn through the story, nor did they resolve their core issues. A disappointing book, but because I know Margot Early is capable of incredibly good writing, I will seek out more of her books.

    For fans of a deep character driven contemporary romance

    Widower graphic artist Seamus Lee will do anything to help his four children move past the accidental death of their mother from a gun shot wound. Thus he takes his still grieving offspring to the Sultan Mountain School in Colorado for three months of survival skills training, where he hopes the outdoors will help them forget their pain.-------------- The prime instructor of the Lee brood is Rory Gorenzi, daughter of the owner. She and Seamus are attracted to one another from the first meeting, but raising his family comes before any other relationships. Still when her father suffers a heart attack, Seamus remains at Rory¿s side to help her and her dad get through the crisis.------------- GOOD WITH CHILDREN is a well written family drama starring the five Lees all in different ways and phases grieving the loss of the matriarch due to a stunning self inflicted accident, which makes the loss even more difficult to cope with. Although a romantic relationship between Rory and Seamus never comes across as right at least at this time even if this is a SuperRomance, the struggles to move on and Rory¿s love for the Lees and her empathy and concern feel genuine. Fans of a deep character driven contemporary will appreciate Margot Early¿s fine tale.---------------- Harriet Klausner
