REVIEW: Soldier Daddy by Cheryl Wyatt

Cheryl Wyatt’s “Soldier Daddy” is the heartwarming fifth installment in the Wings of Refuge series of love stories that center around a group of military pararescue jumpers. This novel showcases the importance of forgiveness and the commander of the PJs, Aaron Petrowski. Being a widower trying to raise twin toddler boys is a less-than-ideal situation for Aaron. When he decides to enlist the assistance of a nanny, Sarah Graham quickly rises to the top of the applicant list. But Sarah has some skeletons in her closet. Her past may be the very thing that forces her away from this family she’s come to love. And even if she stays, will Aaron’s assumptions about their age difference and employer-employee relationship keep them from beginning a very different sort of relationship?

This book is full of likeable characters as well as some quirky ones. And those you’ve come to love from previous stories make repeat appearances. For such a small volume, this novel spoke volumes about offering and accepting forgiveness. These are books I really enjoy because they are small enough to be read very quickly, but they are not short on plot or character development or life lessons. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the PJs’ stories.
