Good story of love and healing. Josh came to Covenant Falls after he inherited a cabin from a fellow soldier who was killed in Afghanistan. Josh also has custody of his friend's military working dog, who is grieving too. Since he has no idea what to do with himself now that he's out of the army, Josh decides to stay and fix up the cabin while he thinks about the future.

Josh had had no idea what moving to a small town would be like. All he wants is to be left alone, to deal with his injuries and

I said in another review that I just posted (Tempted by the Soldier) that I love Patricia Potter’s book. I read and enjoyed that one which made me want to reread this book again, the first in the series.

Enjoyed this one a lot; the people, the small town, and the dogs!!!
Looks like the writer will let us return to Convenant Falls -hopefully soon- as there are still several 'candidates' for a happily ever after, and a great place for wounded heroes to heal...

Wounded hero finds new life in small town with a single mom heroine and plenty of animals. Yep, this is a cutesy small town book. It's not bad, but nothing to write home about either. Basically a predictable book that hits all the usual cliches. If you like that, this is a comfort read and if you don't, you might end up DNF-ing this one.
Grreat story teller. Well written. I just love stories with dogs. The main characters had great chemistry.

"The Soldier's Promise is a heartwarming story about second chances and the power of love to heal all wounds. The inclusion of a former working dog with PTSD adds an interesting element to the story (RT Book REviews)". 4 stars
