Review of A Soldier's Promise by Cheryl Wyatt

A Soldier's Promise by Cheryl Wyatt
Steeple Hill, Love Inspired
ISBN: 978-0-373-87466-8

Back Cover Blurb:
"My name's Bradley. I'm eight and have cancer. I want to meet a Special Forces soldier more than anything. Well, almost anything. Having a family would be nice."

U.S. Air Force pararescue jumper Joel Montgomery promised to make a sick child's wish come true. Well, not the family part--not with Joel's past. And so despite vowing never to set foot back in Refuge, Illinois, Joel parachuted onto the boy's school lawn to a huge smile. But another smile unexpectedly stole Joel's heart: that of Bradley's beautiful teacher, Amber Stanton, who was trying to adopt the boy. And trying to show Joel it was time for new vows.

Review: A Soldier's Promise is the first book in Cheryl Wyatt's Wings of Refuge series for Steeple Hill's Love Inspired line. This book is full of adventure and opened up a whole new experience for me. I had never heard of U.S. Air Force pararescue jumpers before getting my hands on this novel. It's an exciting career and Cheryl Wyatt reveals the highlights of pararescue jumpers' responsibilities in an enjoyable, entertaining read while drawing the reader into the developing romance between pararescue jumper Joel Montgomery and a special needs teacher, Amber Stanton.

The characters engaged me right from the start and the motivations and conflicts kept me flipping the pages right to the very last line. This is one story that doesn't slow down with back story. It plunges straight ahead, and well worth the read. Click here for quick access to purchase a copy from
