Nome-o Seeks Juliet (Odds-Are-Good #2) by Katy Regnery


A Review by Wendy

Spoiler Free
I think Katy Regnery has a very special way of spotlighting those who have been part of the Armed Services. She takes these people and allows us to truly see them...more than just the uniform, the dedication, and the result and impact of the time given in the service for our country. When Ms. Regnery has a character who served, it is never used as a shortcut.

All I had before I started this book was the intriguing blurb:

A headstrong retired U.S. Marine needing a woman who could follow directions, do as he instructed and partner him on Alaska Qimmiq 200 sled race. His only reason for placing the ad was due to the change in the rules insisting there had to be a female partner, the only way to enter.

We were also told the woman who responds is a future veterinarian and her focus is on the care of sled dogs and the way they work with their mushers.

Sounds good and since I use to have Siberian Huskies for years...a perfect read for me.

Well, let me tell you, this book was so much more...it was so special, it hit my heart.

We are first given insight into the mind of a serviceman, Cody Garrison,
who made a specific decision to isolate himself and devote his time to reach the ultimate goal of running in the Iditarod. His love and care for his dogs were illustrated and a man who that type of passion for his dogs, has hidden an equal ability to have that same passion for the right woman.

Montana-born veterinary student, Juliet Sanderson, is a woman who is driven to publish her research regarding the dynamic of musher and sled dogs. She has hit a hiccup with the original subject and now she needs to find another one. Falling into her hands, literally, is Cody's ad for a partner listed in the Odds-Are-Good Alaskan magazine specializing in men looking for women from the lower 48.

What happens between these two is close to a Magnitude 8 Earthquake on the Richter Scale. Neither of them saw anything like that coming and when it finally hit, WOW WEEEEEEEE

There is so much in this story, the honest look at what life can feel like after service leaves you permanently disabled, how it will impact everything... from how you see yourself to how you think others will perceive you. This introspection was so real and touching.

Both of these characters will capture your heart. You will be amazed at their ability to work with these incredible dogs and each and every creature will make you fall in love with them.

Treat yourself to an adventure...experience the cold, experience the challenges and then experience a love that will take your breath away.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.
Now exclusively self-published, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; the Enchanted Places Series; and a stand-alone novella, Frosted.
Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s boxed set, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times bestseller.
Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
