The Simple Wild
The Simple Wild: A Novel | 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 Callas 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 its 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 occasionaldear Godouthouse, all for the chance to connect with her father: a man who, despite his many faults, she cant help but care for. While she struggles to adjust to this new subarctic environment, Jonahthe quiet, brooding, and proud Alaskan pilot who keeps her fathers charter plane company operationalcant imagine calling anywhere else home. And hes clearly waiting with one hand on the throttle to fly this city girl back to where she belongs, convinced that shes 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, its replaced by friendshipor 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 triedand failed atyears ago. Its a simple truth that turns out to be not so simple after all.

Loved this book! The setting (Alaksa) is fantastic and the characters are fantastic. I was thrilled to learn that there will be another book for these characters - coming out in March 2020.

Beach read #1
I didn't know if a book set in Alaska would fit my.mood while laying on a Florida beach, but this book was so charming, I sped through it. Much more than a love story, also about a relationship between a daughter and father.

Today is Alaska Day! The day we recognize the sale of #Alaska from the Russians to the Americans over 150 years ago. Was it a coincidence that Amazon recommended this Alaskan set romance novel for me today? #romantsy

Absolutely loved this book.

I switched between the audio and ebook on Scribd. Both were amazing.

I am not big on romance but this was so much more. It made me laugh and cry.❤️

I love books set in Alaska. I don‘t think I would last one winter night there, but there is something romantic about this last frontier.

GingerAntics I think I would if I had a nice warm person to share body heat with. 😏😉😆 10mo

I will start by saying that I borrowed this from the library but I‘ll probably be buying my own copy. The characters, all of them, are well-rounded, unique, and flawed. The (blood related and found) family dynamics are complex and messy but true. And then the romance is the cherry on top. I am a sucker for bickering as foreplay and fantastic dialogue and banter, and Simple Wild has that in spades. Overall, it‘s just lovely and a new favorite.

robinb I loved this one too! ❤️❤️❤️ 13mo

1. Update Litsy! I‘ve finished several books but haven‘t talked about them yet. Also, Hi 👋🏼 to new followers! I must‘ve made the suggested list but I haven‘t had the chance to interact with my new friends.
2. Kids swim lessons, errands, order Christmas card, put up outside lights. I probably won‘t do it all.
3. Peanut butter buds.
4. Tagged. Love it!
5. Will do later when I have a bit more time.

Calla was only two when her took her and fled the Alaskan wild. Now 26 yrs old, Calla travels to Alaska to try and reconnect with her estranged father. While there she meets all her dad friends she falls in love with Alaska and meets the insufferable Jonah.

I really enjoyed this book and seeing Calla grow from the spoiled city girl to the real her she finds in Alaska. Great characters and writing.

This book took me by complete surprise. I don‘t generally read romance novels, but this was a Kobo daily deal a few months back and the book blurb intrigued me enough to give it a go. Am I ever glad I did! The book deals with heavier subjects than I would have expected, but they are handled well. My favourite thing about the book has to be the humour. I laughed out loud several times. Keep the Kleenex handy though. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

Reading on the bus 🚌 I‘m not usually a user of public transportation because I live close to my office and it only takes me 10 minutes by car to get there. But I was on course downtown today and decided that busing was preferable to driving. Me and my book are now going to hang out for the next hour 📖

RadicalReader @Melissa_J such a relaxing place to read and unwind good to be able to enjoy the excellent environment while transporting too. 1y
Amiable I commute on the train or the shuttle (depending on the day). I love being able to read while someone else drives for me! 😀 1y

Melissa_J @RadicalReader @Amiable @Cathythoughts @TrishB I‘m actually not a fan of reading on the bus because I inevitably end up seated next to or near someone who loudly talks on their cell phone the WHOLE bus ride 😡 Love reading on a plane or train though 👍🏻 1y
Melissa_J @robinb I must say that I‘m finding it pretty enjoyable. Some scenes had me laugh out loud on my bus ride. 1y

Really enjoyed this one! ❤️ New author for me, but I‘ll definitely be checking out her backlist.
A story about all the emotions of re-connecting to an ill parent that you‘ve been estranged from since you were a toddler. A story about finding love in the least likely place. And a story about both forgiving and loving even when it may not turn out all rosy. Humorous, sad and ultimately hopeful. Well done! 4.5/5⭐️

Up next, one I‘ve been wanting to read since it came out in August. The majority of it takes place in Alaska...so I‘m thinking it‘s the right time of year for it. Time to get cozy! 😍

Devoured in a day.
Cried like a baby!
I want a yeti....I‘ve never been interested in the wee bearded men, but ah Jonah, be still my heart ♥️!

It takes a really talented author to coax you to stay, to invite you into their world built of words and paragraphs tucked neatly around you like a blanket until their fictional home is buried deep enough within your imagination that tears are leaking from your heartbroken eyes.

So good!

robinb I REALLY want to read this one...sounds really good! 1y

Really enjoying this fun romance set in Alaska, especially as I sit here in the 90 degree heat in Denver.

If you‘re looking for a slow burn romance, I highly recommend. There‘s a strong presence of family, forgiveness, and personal growth &Tucker seamlessly wove all together.

The best part about this book is the relationships. I loved seeing each of these relationships develop &grow into something beautiful. Alaska was the perfect backdrop for it all, &at times it felt as if it was its own character, changing &growing right alongside these people.

This is what a good romance is! The characters were well developed. The plot was more than just romance. Excellent read while trying to escape the heat. I was dreaming of the cool (even if mosquito infested) Alaska.
