Single in Sitka by Katy Regnery - New Release and Review

Single in Sitka
by Katy Regnery
Series: Odds Are Good, #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 8, 2019

A single Dad. A personal ad. What could possibly go wrong?

When Seattle journalist, Amanda McKendrick, pitches a new story about the increase of bear attacks in Sitka, her newspaper sends her north for two weeks. While there, she answers the personal ad of single dad, Luke Kingston, looking for a little no-strings-attached fun to pass the time.

But the sweet, widowered father of three—who just happens to be a smokin’ hot state trooper—turns out to be a lot more than Amanda bargained for. As the days go by, she wonders if it’ll be possible to return to Seattle without leaving her heart behind.

Katy Regnery always delivers a wonderfully written story that has emotion and heart with a realness to her characters that draws you right into their lives. I loved the unique circumstances that surrounded these characters and appreciated that they really had to fight to get to the happy ever after.

Luke’s role as a single father is something he takes seriously, and my heart continually went out to him as he tries to find a new normal for his family after the sudden passing of his wife. And although things start off with a no-strings agreement, once that changes you could really feel the struggle he had as he tried to balance a new relationship with Amanda with his current family and life. I loved that neither Amanda or Luke was willing to give up the things they knew were important to them to make things work – watching them struggle to figure things out added such an emotional realness to the story.

I also loved the way the relationship between Luke, Amanda, and Luke’s children was built into the story. The concern at first about introducing someone temporary into the children’s lives and then how to find a place for Amanda was very well done. And I can't say enough about how the struggle Chad, Luke’s son, had with dealing with his feelings about losing his mom and not wanting her to be replaced were handled - the dialogue surrounding this and so many other of these issues that was built into the story was just wonderful.
“You only get one mom. You had a great one. But in this life, you can have unlimited friends, which is kind of great.”
Another great read from Katie Regnery and a great start to a new series that looks to have some unique settings and circumstances. It’s hard to go wrong when you pick up a Katy Regnery book!
