Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Sheltered by the Doctor by Danielle Grandinetti, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!



I have thoroughly enjoyed every book I have read from Danielle Grandinetti’s Harbored in Crow’s Nest series and fully intend to read any that I may have missed. I love my visits to Crow’s Nest and getting to know each of its residents a bit better in each new book. Although I am anxious to learn more about the mysteries that surround the village, I am not ready to end my visits there. Sheltered by the Doctor answered a few questions but left many unsolved. I cannot wait for the next installment!

I especially liked learning more about Mindy Zahn and Doctor Nick Matrone. Mindy pretty much thinks of herself as worthless and believes her beauty is the only reason anyone likes her. She does not see that people are attracted to her caring spirit that is willing to sacrifice everything for those she cares about. As an Italian who has grown up among people who hate his nationality, Nick believes himself unworthy of the women he has grown to love but will protect her with his life if needed. Because of their backgrounds, a future together seems almost impossible but when danger threatens, both Nick and Mindy learn just how much the other cares as well as how many others and God love them too.

I love this series and as stated above, I am eager for the next book. The characters come alive on the pages and vivid descriptions of the setting make me want to go for a real visit. I think other readers will discover the same.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by JustReads Publicity. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.

A fake relationship might keep her safe, but will it break their hearts?

Wisconsin, 1931—Mindy Zahn can’t understand why her parents deserted the family farm, leaving her mute younger sister in her care. Until her mother’s cryptic warning to keep her sister safe becomes a life-threatening task.

Searching for that elusive something to ease his weary heart, Dr. Nick Matrone is drawn to the cheery Mindy. He would never presume to bring such a sweet woman into his beleaguered past, so friendship is all he can offer. Except, he doesn’t expect needing to save her life.

As the danger grows, they both must battle through physical and emotional wounds to have a hope of their counterfeit relationship becoming true.

Welcome to Crow’s Nest, where danger and romance meet at the water’s edge.
