THE SOLDIER’S PROMISE (4) by Patricia Potter: Following a bomb blast that killed his best friend, Dave, Josh Manning moves into his cottage to fix it up and sell it. Josh is recovering from his own injuries and has taken in Amos, a former bomb-detecting dog. After he meets local mayor Eve Douglas and her young son, Josh looks forward to their visits, as does Amos. Then Eve turns to him to help solve a robbery. Soon it becomes clear to Josh that he’s stuck on Covenant Falls — and Eve. 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.
