REFUGE FOR THE ARCHAEOLOGIST by Danielle Grandinetti, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise #ReleaseDay


Set in Crows Nest, Wisconsin in 1930, this is a story that highlights Cora Davis and her brain injury acquired when she experienced an earthquake during an archeological dig in Italy.

Cora visits her Aunt Rose to rest and recuperate. She meets Silas Ward, a local carpenter and handyman who looks out for her aunt.

Filled with intrigue, excitement, a great romantic hero, faith and family values, this book checks all the boxes of a well plotted and interesting story. I enjoyed the historical details woven in such as an old desk with a secret compartment. I especially liked Aunt Rose with her insight and wisdom. This author has become a favorite with her relatable characters and fascinating plots.

A great addition to the series. I cannot wait for book #3.

BackCover Blurb:
Will uncovering the truth set them free or destroy what they hold most dear?

Wisconsin, 1930—With her health in shambles and her archaeological career on the line, Cora Davis retreats to Crow’s Nest and the home of her great aunt to heal. She doesn’t think much of the missing memories from between the earthquake that caused her dizzy spells and her trip home. Until she begins remembering the danger that sent her fleeing her last dig and the person responsible.

After a decade as a ranch hand, Silas Ward returned to Crow’s Nest to provide for the women in his life. That same protective instinct propels him to Cora’s aid. But when finances dwindle, the lies and greed of others threaten to ruin his family. Unless Silas can walk the thin line of compromise. A choice that might cost him Cora’s affection.

As winter’s chill threatens, will Crow’s Nest prove a refuge, or will both Cora and Silas have no choice but to sacrifice their chance at happiness to save those they love?
