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.
A Strike to the Heart is the primary novel in the Strike to the Heart series, ordered as book two since it is preceded by prequel novella To Stand in the Breach and followed by Christmas novella As Silent as the Night.
With a family heritage of dairy farmers and immigrants, Danielle Grandinetti grew up on stories told to her by her grandparents, parents, aunts, and uncles of living on a farm, being an Italian in Chicago, and surviving wars and the Great Depression. Its why she writes of finding home in hard times.
After nearly two decades in education, Danielle is now a book blogger at DaniellesWritingSpot.com. Her short stories have appeared in several publications, and her writing has won the University of Northwestern Distinguished Faith in Writing Award. A Chicagoland native, she lives along Lake Michigans Wisconsin shoreline with her husband and their two young sons. Danielle especially loves quiet mornings served with the perfect cup of tea.
“A Strike to the Heart is an entertaining story that grabs you on the first page with its intriguing plot, as Grandinetti expertly balances action with the tender stirrings of a romance that will woo your senses until the very end.”
~Natalie Walters, award-winning author of Lights Out and the Harbored Secrets Series
“Danielle Grandinetti’s novel A Strike to the Heart starts with a bang, literally, and doesn’t slow down from there as her characters fight for their lives against unknown enemies. Lily and Miles aren’t only facing physical dangers, but their hearts are also at risk as they join forces in their fight to survive. If you like stories full of action with plenty of romance mixed in, then A Strike to the Heart is a book you will want to read.”
~Ann H. Gabhart, best-selling author of Along a Storied Trail
“I loved this depression-era story. Danielle Grandinetti gives the readers an up-close-and-personal look at life in Wisconsin during the dairy strikes. And oh, Miles Wright is a swoon-worthy retired Marine, and Lily is as independent as they come for a woman in the 1930s. A perfect combination for a page-turner historical romance. A well-researched, well-written, and intriguing look at a bygone era. I look forward to more from this debut author.”
~Cindy Ervin Huff, award-winning writer, author of Angelina’s Resolve
