This review is from: September 30, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Considering the amazing lineup of excellent books that Regnery has penned, Single In Sitka is one of my favorite series books of Katy’s to date. This book contains it all; sizzling heat between a sexy, single dad and a work-driven journalist. Heart pounding, emotional moments ranging from tears to anxiety to deep swooning. Along with fabulous secondary characters that enrich the story. Single in Sitka is a book you don’t want to miss in 2019!
Amanda finds an ad in the Odds Are Good online dating magazine describing Luke; a single guy in Alaska looking for love. She’s never been to Alaska, but she is picturing a hunky man who can fulfill her nightly fantasies better than her cheating ex ever could. When she’s pressed to fulfill a deadline for where she works, her writing partner throws out the idea of saving the bears in Alaska thus giving her the opportunity to find her hunky soulmate. Unable to turn down a writing assignment…Amanda suddenly finds herself in Alaska with the ability to look up Luke; Mr. Single and hopefully hunky, dreamy Luke. When in Alaska and all that.
Luckily Luke is actually who he says he is, BUT he didn’t place the ad, his sister did. Nothing like a bit of awkward to start things off. You see, the reason Luke is single, his wife passed away two years ago and his sister feels it’s time to get back on the proverbial horse. She’s worried about him. While she takes his kids for the weekend, he meets Amanda and they do hit it off, but decide on a no-strings, just fun agreement. Perfect. She’s only in town for two weeks as it is. Things are great until they both get attached and two weeks aren’t nearly enough.
What do you do when the person you’re falling for lives 800 miles away? How do people make these long distance relationships work? Should they just chalk it up as a fling and move on?
There are so many variables and moving parts when it comes to falling in love as a single father. Luke as an AH HA moment when he realized that when he fell in love with his wife it was just the two of them and he could devote all of his attention to just her. Now, even if he wanted to spend every waking hour with Amanda he couldn’t. He had responsibilities, not that he would trade them for the world, he loved his kids, but this time around it was just different which meant he had to do things differently. I love these kind of intricate details that seem so minute, but add so much flavor
Single in Sitka is such a great story and even though it is a complete standalone I can’t wait to return to Alaska and see what Katy has in store for us next.
