Part 2 on “More Than a Soldier”, by Irene Onorato

Susan Karsten here!

Following is my Amazon review of the novel, More Than a Soldier:

Hank and Cindy! What a darling couple they make…too bad the road to true love holds so many obstacles. The past rears its head for both hero and heroine in this rollicking, delightful, scary, action-packed, and realistic romance. The romance rings true, and is very appealing, but what amazed me about this book was the non-stop action, and interesting details liberally slathered into this story, like butter on a pancake, in fact. Such an excellent read — I enjoyed every page.


I wholeheartedly recommend this enjoyable book! {available on Amazon}

Since the hero’s love for a tall stack of pancakes is mentioned in the novel, Renie has provided her specialty pancake recipe.
