NOME-O SEEKS JULIET
An Odds-Are-Good Romance #2
New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery returns with the second book in her Odds-Are-Good series!
When a lonely vet(eran) and an ambitious vet(erinarian) work together to win the Qimmiq 200, sparks will fly …
Montana-born veterinary student, Juliet Sanderson, is disappointed when her project on the treatment and care of sled dogs falls through due to the illness of a local musher. In an effort to salvage her study and graduate, she answers the personal ad of Alaskan musher, Cody Garrison, who is desperately seeking a teammate for an upcoming co-ed race, The Qimmiq 200.
Cody Garrison, a retired U.S. Marine, doesn’t tell Juliet that he was left permanently disabled during his time in active service, fearing that she wouldn’t agree to race with him if she knew. But once she arrives in Alaska, discovering the truth about Cody’s past will be inevitable. Will the partnership they’ve agreed to, and the off-the-charts chemistry between them, be enough to see them through the rigors of training and secure them the win of their lives?
This is a fantastic return to form for Katy Regnery. Greatly aided by the same elements from The Vixen and the Vet that made me fall in love with her writing–memorable characters, compelling back story, evocative narration–Nome-o Seeks Juliet delivers a highly enjoyable read.
Once again, Katy created a swoon-worthy hero in Cody. He’s vulnerable yet strong at the same time. He made me love him with his earnest yearning to love and be loved and he made me cry with his caring for his sled dogs, especially his Viola. That scene near the end gutted me.
I thought at first that Juliet would not be able to measure up to Cody. Her initial plan to hide the truth of her study rubbed me the wrong way, but she changed my mind with the way she dealt with Glenn and her early admission of falling in love. I really appreciate the absence of push-and-pull. The way she expanded Cody’s world by inviting him to share her family won her huge points from me.
Another aspect I loved was the uniqueness of the scenario and setting–dog sled racing in Nome, Alaska. It’s obvious that Katy did a great deal of research because she brought this unfamiliar lifestyle to life in such a believable and fascinating manner, I was transported to its location.
Nome-o Seeks Juliet was a fun, quick, delightful read. Whereas I was lukewarm on this series before, I’m now looking forward to the rest of the books.
