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.

My Thoughts 

Sheltered by The Doctor is written by Danielle Grandinetti. This is book five in the Harbored in Crow’s Nest series. They can be read as stand alones, however characters have been introduced in previous books. Out of the whole series I think this is my favorite one. The cover is so detailed and draws you in. 

Mindy is a waitress. She can’t read, but she makes do with her own little language of symbols and shorthand. Her boss is not a nice man. He hires women just for their looks. Mindy has a little sister, Mabel, who is mute and does not speak at all. One day Mabel shows up at the restaurant where Mindy is working at with a note from her parents to asking her to keep her safe.

Nick is an Italian doctor. He hasn’t been very welcomed in the area and he has a lot to prove of himself. This is a time. Where immigrants were frowned upon. Nick is drawn to Mindy and to Mabel also. He wants to try to get to the bottom of why Mabel doesn’t speak. Before he can do too much digging it turns out that Mindy’s father got himself in a bit of a pickle, and Mindy is attacked one day while walking back to her apartment. 

Because she was so badly injured she no longer has a job and Nick offers her one as his nurse. I love seeing them work together to take care of the town people. They also have to watch their backs because whoever her father upset is clear set on making sure that Mabel And Mindy are collateral damage.

This book is well written, has very engaging characters and was such a wonderful read. The author writes this time. Very well, and I love that she put in how immigrants may have been treated. I’ve really enjoyed this series. I feel like the characters have become my friends. 

Thank You to the author, publisher, and JustRead Publicity Tours for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
