Review & Giveaway: A Strike to the Heart by Danielle Grandinetti

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for A Strike to the Heart by Danielle Grandinetti, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


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.

This story was action packed right from the beginning and kept me guessing throughout the entire book. There were so many characters and so much woven into the reasons behind the violence and danger that Lily and Miles kept finding themselves in the middle of. I had some trouble keeping so many characters straight in my mind at times. There were twists and turns to the twists and turns! But the author did a good job of pulling it all together in the end and showing how everything was connected.

Throughout the story, Lily and Miles made some decisions that I just didn’t understand and that frustrated me. I also struggled with the way Lily’s brother and father reacted to Miles for a good portion of the book. I did enjoy the romance that began to brew between Lily and Miles. It seemed very natural. So, while I sometimes questioned the decision making of the characters, I enjoyed the story overall.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
