Book Review: A Soldier's Family

A Soldier's Family (Wings of Refuge) by Cheryl Wyatt Love Inspired #438 - Mar 08

I like this book just as much as the first one in the series - A Soldier's Promise. It's also going to my Top 10 list. Yeah, I know, this will make it 12, but what else can I do? This was a totally satisfying book. I can't wait for Book 3
Cheryl Wyatt brings the characters to life with all the human frailties, emotions and temptations you would find in everyday life. I laughed and cried with them as if they we my friends.
The heroine, Celia Munoz, is still struggling to carry on with life for herself and her teenage son even after five years of widowhood. Her husband died violently and the last thing she wants is to fall into a relationship with another man who works a dangerous job.
Manny Pena recognized Celia's...attributes...the first time he saw her. That fateful encounter happened while he was drunk. It wasn't until after she gave him a fat lip he realized he'd treated her with disrespect. It was the last drink he took. But, the effect on Celia is long-lasting.
Celia's problem is, although rightfully justified, she had been attracted to Manny until he propositioned her. Now, as Manny recuperates, Celia gets to see another side of him. As well as the respect and attention, Manny is giving to her son, Celia can't help feeling feminine when Manny directs his dark expressive eyes her way.

Heat Level: Affectionate (kissing and hand holding but nothing more)

My Rating: Excellent - 5 stars (one to re-read; definitely a keeper)
