Best bits: Derek is determined to do what is best for Lexi, but reluctant to seek God's help or direction, fearing he has done too much wrong (having Lexi while unmarried, killing in war, etc) for God to help him. Julie's kindness, gentleness, and faithful prayers are good witnesses to Derek and Lexi. Derek find himself wanting to ask God for help because of her, and she talks to him about how God loves him and will forgive him and listen to him regardless of what he may have done wrong. No typos that I noticed.
Issues: The mechanic's name changing from Henry to Harold at one point. Some bits were a bit repetitive. I didn't completely get the issue with Lexi's grandparents, but was glad it was resolved. I felt that something was off with sweet Lexi, who sometimes seemed maybe mildly autistic, and sometimes didn't, but that was never clarified.
A SOLDIER'S PROMISE is another installment in Crystal Lake Series, and it made me wish I could visit it. Besides beauty of the lake, small-town values and kind-hearted people drew me to this place. People like ER nurse Julie Crain.
Julie is recovering from a broken engagement, and the last thing she needs is to risk her heart again. But that's exactly what happens when she offers her place to stay to newcomers in town and ER patients - handsome single dad Derek Ryerson and his daughter Lexi. But how can she not help them when hotels have no vacancies and he needs to recover from a car accident?
Derek faces his own moral dilemma. He loves Lexi with all his heart and will do anything to protect her from things - and people - that might hurt her. But does he really knows what's best for her? Strong and kind, he is still running away from what he thinks threatens Lexi. He also runs away from faith. Julie is an amazing heroine. Not only she helps his physical wounds heal, she is determined to do the same with his spiritual and emotional ones. Even when she is falling for him while knowing he just passes through town.
Will Derek's secret tear them apart? Or will Julie help him believe again - and save him and the happiness of his little daughter? The answers are in A SOLDIER'S PROMISE. I loved the theme of self-sacrifice, and the bond between father and daughter was very touching. It is a beautiful, kind, and tender story, and I can't wait for the next book in Crystal Lake Series to be out.
I didn't realize this was a Christian roman when I downloaded it. I really don't care for the genre so I read until I gave up. Nothing wrong with the story or the characters, just not my thing. So I would definitely recommend it to readers of Christian romance.
No one paid me for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am a reader and this is just my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.
