Captivating story surrounding the milk strikes in Wisconsin during the Depression. Having lived in Wisconsin for 11 years, I was intrigued by the history.
The author brings to life the turbulent times with a heroine who is independent and a hero who is strong and resilient.
Lily Moore is an unwitting pawn in the conflict between the dairy farmers and the milk distributors. Miles Wright and his team from the Craft Agency have been hired to protect Lily. After a disastrous rescue, Miles finds himself the only thing between Lily and peril. The author has captured the tension and danger in a time when people were fighting for a fair price in order to keep their businesses afloat and families fed. Ms Grandinetti piqued my interest with her characterizations of her villains and family dynamics. Add to that keeping of secrets and a growing fondness between Miles and Lily and you have an exciting, well crafted story of an important time in our history.
I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

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.
