A Soldier's Family

Today's review is
A Soldier's Family
Cheryl Wyatt

This is the second book in the Wings of Refuge series (see the post on January 2 about A Soldier's Promise). This book features Amber's best friend, Celia Munoz and one of the pararescue jumpers in Joel Montgomery's unit, Manny Pena. This book has one of the best first lines I've ever seen:

"This was not the smartest way to die."

It is a wonderful romance, but the heart of the book is really the development of deeper relationships with God -- for Manny as a new Christian and for Celia who has been hurt and has fallen away from the church. There is also an amazing story line dealing with Celia's son, Javier -- I can't explain it without giving away a major part of the story.

Bottom line -- READ THIS BOOK! Even if you haven't had a chance to read A Soldier's Promise, you will love this book.


Cheryl Wyatt's closest friends would never dream the mayhem she plots during announcements at church. An RN-turned-SAHM, joyful chaos rules her home, and she delights in the stealth moments God gives her to write. She's convinced that having been born on a Naval base on Valentine's Day destined her to write military romance. She stays active in her church and in her laundry room. Both of her debut novels (Books 1 and 2 in her Wings of Refuge Series from Steeple Hill) have received Romantic Times Top Picks.

Here's the back cover blurb and an amazon link to purchase the book:


On A Crash Course With Love

She was the woman of pararescue jumper Manny Péna's dreams. But he'd stuck his foot in his mouth the last time he met Celia Munez. 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.
