Relying on the Enemy (Harbored in Crow's Nest, #4) by Danielle Grandinetti

Relying on the Enemy (Harbored in Crow's Nest, #3)

She's protecting her children. He's redeeming his past.
But there’s nothing convenient about saving their patchwork family.

Wisconsin, 1931—All widowed mother Marian Ward wants is to provide for her girls. However, she faces the dead of winter with no income and dwindling resources. Then she overhears a nefarious conversation, putting her life and that of her children in immediate danger.

Aiming to make amends to the Wards, Gilbert steps in when the threat to Marian escalates. It costs him dearly. Either lose his career or marry her, and be tied to his past until death do them part.

He leaves the decision to Marian, who will do anything to protect her girls, even marry the son of the man who ruined her family. How will their fledgling trust prove strong enough to fulfill their vows as winter tightens its grip and desperation stalks at the door?

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

Danger, suspense, and romance have been key factors in the previous Harbored in Crow's Nest books, and author Danielle Grandinetti continues this winning format in Relying on the Enemy. How far is Gilbert Cox willing to go to atone for his father's sins? Will young widow Marian Ward agree to a marriage of convenience with the son of a man who ruined her family?

This intriguing story, set in Crow's Nest, Wisconsin, is filled with tension and unanswered questions but there are also many moments of grace and forgiveness. Gilbert is immediately drawn to Marion's young daughters, and they are just as taken with him. The circumstances may be unconventional but the budding relationship between these two unselfish people is a joy to behold. If they can only stay safe long enough!

If you enjoy a marriage of convenience trope and historical Christian suspense, you'll want to read Relying on the Enemy. There's also a teaser for the next book in the series.
