Terms of Surrender, A Rocky Mountain Contemporary Romance, Sheila Seabrook Review from jeannie zelos book reviews I was really looking forward to this, had read the sample and it looked perfect for me. Still, some you win, some you don’t and for me this was a wrong choice. I didn't hate it, it was an ok book, but the story as it played out just didn’t spark my imagination and take me into the story as I’d thought it would. Harley was a pleasant lady, still grieving from the loss of her twin sister. She’s long had feelings for Gage, but he’s made it clear nothing will happen. He seems to see her as fragile when in reality she’s a very strong character. Gage’s brother was married to Harley’s twin and they have twin 4 year old daughters. Its only been two months but its clear to Harley that he’s struggling with them, and drinking to excess. He's changed so much from the person he was before her sister died. Then there's his and Gage’s parents...They’ve bad problems too. the book raises a number of issues, death, grief and how to cope, along with a very important one of something so many families keep hidden, and yet which causes such terrible repercussions if not dealt with properly. Harley takes over with the twins when she feels they’re in danger, and they’re all staying at Gage’s house. Slowly she’s breaking down his reserve until something drastic happens, and everything seems to coalesce at once. Can they get through together or is this the end. Well, I liked Harley but wondered how she was able to take so much time away from her job. I’d have assumed she’d have been helping more with the twins given they were supposed to be so close but she let their dad’s feelings keep her away. I thought Gage was clearly hot, and yet obsessed about what he was hiding to the point of idiocy. He’s never had problems so far that way, so why did he think he would? I found his brothers deterioration a bit hard to believe, but then grief does do odd things to people so it’s possible he could change that rapidly. The twins, for four years old they were far above their years in many ways, and in many of the things they said. Given their mum has just died and their dad has changed so much I was surprised they didn't seem to have problems with that. They didn’t seem to have school, nursery or friends either, just this narrow, nuclear family. It just felt a little too unreal to me, and I think that was my main problem, the believability of it. Its a shame because the problems raised were very real, and could have made a great read – still, as ever I’m just one person and others will love this book. Horses for courses and all that... Stars: sadly its a two, just didn’t cut it for me. ARC supplied by Netgalley and publishers.
