More from Dana
Up on the housetop, click, click, click, down through the chimney with good St. Nick. Does anyone know that line from the famous Christmas song? I’ve been singing it for years but only recently did I learn that the clicking is a real reindeer phenomenon. Those reindeer ankle joints make a clicking sound so they can find the rest of their herd if they are separated in a blizzard. It’s just one of the many things I learned about reindeer while researching to write Yukon Justice. In the novel, Katy has to take over running her aunt’s reindeer ranch and protect it from threats by a dangerous intruder. I had the pleasure of “Zoom” interviewing the owner of the Running Reindeer Ranch in Fairbanks, Alaska! Jane helped me learn all kinds of interesting things about reindeer. How much do you know about these critters? Take my quick three question trivia quiz to test your knowledge!
- What’s the difference between caribou and reindeer? They are the same animal but caribou are the wild variety and the domesticated version are called reindeer.
- Do males or females grow antlers? Both! Reindeer are a type of deer and the only species where the female grows antlers as well as the males.
- How come kids put out carrots for Santa’s reindeer? Good question! Carrots are not, in fact, part of a natural healthy reindeer diet. The animals don’t even have front teeth! A much better treat would be willow or birch leaves, or their favorite food…lichen, which they find by scraping the snow away from the ground with their hooves.
So how did you do? If you want to know more about these amazing creatures, snag yourself a copy of Yukon Justice!
I’m sure you can’t see me dancing but I am. Every time the author has a new book out I get excited. She has this writing style that is witty, captivating and filled with wonderful adventure. Her characters are well defined and I like how she puts faith in each of her stories. The excitement of reindeers in this story made me intrigued. I couldn’t wait to see who was stealing them and what other mystery was going to develop as I kept reading.
Katie has her hands full when someone is out to destroy her aunts farm. Could it really be her uncle who is trying to destroy the farm? When a shot rings out, the adventure starts as Katie and her K-9 try to rescue her aunt. The adrenaline rush is clear as the perpetrator gets away. When all evidence points to it being her uncle Terrance I think she was a little shocked. Why is he so angry at her that he would want to kill her?
Brayden is not thrilled to get the assignment of watching over Katie. With their past history I can understand why. However he is a professional and will do his job. Oh I know there is going to be friction between him and Katie and the author does a great job of pairing these two up. I loved the banter between them and enjoyed how they slowly started to trust each other. It is easy to see that Brayden has feelings for Katie but it will not be an easy task to win her over. There is a vulnerable side to Brayden when it comes to Katie. He needs to keep his head in the game or he may get Katie hurt. The poor guy is trying so hard to keep her from danger but she is a very stubborn woman.
The action never stops as Terrance continues his terror against Katie and whoever gets in his way. He has clever ways to try to hurt her, but with the K-9 dogs, Brayden and the team they get closer to capturing Terrance. The author really took me by surprise with the twist in the story. It is now a matter of who can be trusted as deceit enters the picture. My heart started beating faster as the events played out right before my eyes.
The ending is nothing short of action packed edge of your seat danger as Terrance tries to harm Katie. The author does such a good job of bringing the book to an end in a way that you would expect from someone who is gifted with writing a thrilling and suspenseful story. I can’t wait for the next installment in this incredible series.
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
