In My Opinion
Dana Mentink is one of my favorite Love Inspired Suspense authors, and she does it again in Yukon Justice with a struggling reindeer farm, a state trooper, and his Newfoundland dog who loves the water.
Katie and Brayden have some big speed bumps in their history of knowing each other, but when Brayden’s assigned protection detail for Katie, they each see another side of the person they thought they knew.
For those following the Alaska K9 series, the entire gang makes an appearance and for those who have picked up this book without realizing it’s part of a series, the book stands alone just fine. There was one place I was confused (as I am in the camp that has not read the other books) trying to keep track of all of the investigations happening with the team, but it was a couple paragraphs and then I was immersed back in the story.
I did feel like the end of this one was more abrupt than other books by Mentink, but I still got the happy ending I crave in my romantic suspense books.

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!
