Review – The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker

City girl Calla Fletcher attempts to reconnect with her estranged father, and unwittingly finds herself torn between her desire to return to the bustle of Toronto and a budding relationship with a rugged Alaskan pilot in this masterful new romance from acclaimed author K.A. Tucker.

Calla Fletcher was two when her mother took her and fled the Alaskan wild, unable to handle the isolation of the extreme, rural lifestyle, leaving behind Calla’s father, Wren Fletcher, in the process. Calla never looked back, and at twenty-six, a busy life in Toronto is all she knows. But when her father reaches out to inform her that his days are numbered, Calla knows that it’s time to make the long trip back to the remote frontier town where she was born.

She braves the roaming wildlife, the odd daylight hours, the exorbitant prices, and even the occasional—dear God—outhouse, all for the chance to connect with her father: a man who, despite his many faults, she can’t help but care for. While she struggles to adjust to this new subarctic environment, Jonah—the quiet, brooding, and proud Alaskan pilot who keeps her father’s charter plane company operational—can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. And he’s clearly waiting with one hand on the throttle to fly this city girl back to where she belongs, convinced that she’s too pampered to handle the wild.

Jonah is probably right, but Calla is determined to prove him wrong. As time passes, she unexpectedly finds herself forming a bond with the burly pilot. As his undercurrent of disapproval dwindles, it’s replaced by friendship—or perhaps something deeper? But Calla is not in Alaska to stay and Jonah will never leave. It would be foolish of her to kindle a romance, to take the same path her parents tried—and failed at—years ago.

It’s a simple truth that turns out to be not so simple after all.

All About Books on NET Radio Featuring The Collectors’ Society by Heather Lyons

I am so fortunate to have an incredibly vast group of really interesting and immensely talented friends! A few weeks ago, one of my good friends announced that she has been tapped to be the permanent host of a weekly show and podcast on Nebraska’s NPR station.

My friend, Pat Leach, is the Director of the Lincoln City Libraries AND the new host of All About Books on NET Radio. Because she’s a librarian and I LOVE books, I often talk her ear off about my love of reading. It is Pat who reminds me now and again that I should always read books that I love no matter what any one else thinks or says about it! She is a tireless champion of books and book lovers.

I was flattered when Pat asked me if I would join her on an episode of All About Books as a guest reviewer. She asked me to pick any book to review and discuss with her. I was absolutely giddy about it! We also chatted a little bit about reading and blogging. Today, my little episode of All About Books airs on NET Radio and the podcast is available online.

I am thrilled to review (again) The Collectors’ Society by Heather Lyons. I LOVE this book so much that I want everyone to read and love it too! And, I believe it is the perfect book for book lovers!
