The Simple Wild by K. A. Tucker
I recently discovered my love for K. A. Tucker’s books. Her books have been on my radar for a few years now, but for one reason or another I hadn’t picked up any of them until earlier this year, and now I’m obsessed. For this reason, and the enormous praise I had heard, I decided to pick up The Simple Wild.
The Simple Wild follows Calla, a lost twenty-something living in Toronto. When she finds out her estranged father Wren is sick, Calla flies to Alaska to see him. Life in Alaska is radically different from her life in Toronto, and Calla struggles to adjust. She meets Jonah, one of the bush pilot’s for her father’s company. Jonah would like nothing more than to take Calla the city girl back where she belongs, and while he’s probably right, Calla wants to prove him wrong. As the two get to know each other, they form an unexpected bond, and their bickering turns into so much more.
I loved The Simple Wild. It made me long for a simple life in a rural setting. I quickly fell in love with Calla and the tough but sweet Jonah. This book made me laugh, cry, and swoon. I can’t wait for the sequel!
