DSCN0306

Introduction:

A Soldier’s Promise  is a book by Cynthia Thomason . This book is a Heartwarming book from Harlequin Romance Books.

My Synopsis: 

This is about a soldier and his teenage daughter. The soldier is right out of the service and also just lost his wife. He is trying to adjust to civilian life. A teacher who is trying to get over own problems tries to help the soldier and his teenage daughter. The teacher has made a promise  to herself. Will she break her own rules/policy?

Publisher’s Synopsis: 

Brenna Sullivan has a strict policy about not getting emotionally involved with her students. Yet there’s something about the new student, Carrie, and her father that has Brenna breaking all her rules.

Mike Langston’s parenting methods may be more than a little outdated, but Brenna is struck by the brave and honorable man he is and, despite her better judgement, she’s falling deeper and deeper for him. But how can she cross the line when their feelings start to grow?

What I Liked: 

I enjoyed reading a book about a soldier who’s right out of the service. I liked reading that this wasn’t the only problem he had. Between being right out of the service, raising a teenage daughter by himself plus his wife dying, it made the book more interesting to see how he solved these problems. I liked reading that the teacher who had her own problems reached out to try to help a veteran soldier solve his problems. Did the teacher and the veteran soldier get their problems solved? You’ll have to read the book and find out.

What I Didn’t Like:

I can’t think of anything I didn’t like about the book. Yes, it was that good in my opinion.
