A Soldier's Family by Cheryl Wyatt
Steeple Hill, Love Inspired
Back Cover Blurb:
On A Crash Course With Love
She was the woman of pararescue jumper Manny Pena's dreams. But he'd stuck his foot in his mouth the last time he met Celia Munoz. Now, grounded after a parachuting accident, he was desperate to make amends with the beautiful widow.
But Celia wasn't having it. The last thing she needed was another man with a dangerous job--even if he had given his life to God. Yet Manny's growing commitment to her and her troubled son began to convince her that perhaps she should take her own leap of faith.
Review: A Soldier's Family is the second installment in Cheryl Wyatt's Wings of Refuge series. This is definitely a stand alone novel, but trust me, you don't want to miss the first in the series, either, A Soldier's Promise, released in Jan/08.
The opening line: "This was not the smartest way to die." in A Soldier's Family is not only an amazing hook, but it shows the narrative intimacy that author, Cheryl Wyatt writes within. I love it when I get to really know the story characters and in this story Celia and Manny become friends to the reader. Their snappy and often unchecked responses to one another is very real to life. And the bond that develops between Manny and Celia's son, Javier, is of huge importance to this story and supports the rocky development of the romantic relationship between Manny and Celia. This book was another fast read that didn't disappoint. I so look forward to the remaining stories in Cheryl Wyatt's Wings of Refuge series.
