ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: A Strike to the Heart
Series: Strike to the Heart #1
Author: Danielle Grandinetti
Publisher: Iron Stream Media
Release Date: April 12, 2022
Genre: Historical Romantic Suspense
She’s fiercely independent. He’s determined to protect her.
Wisconsin, 1933―When a routine mission becomes an ambush that kills his team, Craft Agency sniper Miles Wright determines to find the persons responsible and protect the woman he rescued. But the fierce independence that led Lily Moore to leave her family’s dairy business for the solitary life of a dog trainer and the isolation of her farm don’t make that easy. Neither does his unwanted attraction to her. Meanwhile, escalating incidents confirm that she’s far from safe.
Lily fears letting the surprisingly gentle retired marine into her life almost as much as she fears whoever is threatening her. As Wisconsin farmers edge toward another milk strike, one that will surely turn violent, it becomes clear that the plot against Lily may be part of a much larger conspiracy. When the search for her abductor leads close to home, she must decide whether to trust her family or the man who saved her life.

IN MY OPINION
In her debut novel, Danielle Grandinetti opens with action and intrigue and questions that don’t stop until the end of A Strike to the Heart.
Lily is a strong, independent woman in the 1930s and because of her choice to work instead of marry, she’s often the subject of gossip around town. Miles is focused, well-trained, and protective but underneath that warrior’s exterior lies a tender heart.
I immediately liked Lily and Miles together. Even though they both have strong personalities, they quickly grow to admire the other. And though this novel takes place over a short period of time, the romance follows a believable and natural progression.
Grandinetti gives readers some history of Wisconsin (dairy strikes, hunting dogs, and more) in an engaging way that kept me turning pages until the mysteries were solved and everyone is safe. I look forward to seeing what this author writes next.
