Knights of the North: A Yukon Adventure by Bobby Hutchinson


KNIGHTS OF THE NORTH: A YUKON ADVENTURE

Synopsis:

MYSTERY, ADVENTURE AND ROMANCE IN THE YUKON! HIS RIGHT HAND MAN TURNED OUT TO BE A WOMAN

Constable Christine Johnstone joined the Royal Canadian Mounted Police looking for travel, adventure and promotion. But working undercover has put her life in danger, and the best way to protect her is to hide her in plain sight--as a working constable in Dawson City, Yukon.

Corporal Michael Quinn doesn't consider himself a chauvanist, but he needs a tough young policeman to help him uphold law and order in what is still in many ways a frontier town. He can't believe they've sent him a female constable. Quinn is a renegade cop, a still young, old fashioned, disillusioned Mountie whose career is at a standstill. He's the law in Dawson, and he'll be there upholding it until he retires. He knows his town and all the people in it, and he has no illusions about love, marriage and happily ever after--or about the ability of his new constable to subdue drunken miners.

But Chris knows that brains can outdo brawn. What she doesn't know is how to deal with the sizzling attraction between her and Quinn. How can they resist passion when winter is one long, dark, cold night?

Fans of Tracie Peterson's Yukon Quest trilogy will love Knights Of The North, a Yukon Adventure.

Review:

I started reading Knights of the North and thought what am I reading? Michael is so sexist and it was really off putting. It didn't make a lot of sense why he was so females can't do this job as he was, but that is what you get. I almost put it aside, but thankfully it did get better as I went on. Christine starts off having to do all the lame jobs around the office, cleaning and data entry and such, but she doesn't really have much of a choice. She needs to stay in this tiny town in northern Canada until things settle down. She has been working undercover and was able to arrest a few people, but one that they were trying to bring down got off. They were worried he would retaliate and come after Christine so they send her to a middle of nowhere small town where visitors would be noticed and she could hide away.

So Christine is stuck in this tiny town and working with Michael who obviously doesn't want her there. He is attracted to her and they live in close quarters, but he still tries to resist. Really that is almost more motivation to get her sent somewhere else. She is attracted to him as well and it is not long before they become more to each other. Christine also proves that she is just as good of a cop as Michael is so they start sharing the actual job duties. They live and work in the same building so it is hard to get away from each other. Of course everything isn't just roses as the both have different career objectives which would make it difficult to have a long term relationship, but in the end it all works out.

Add to this a bit of suspense from the bad guys who are after Christine. That part didn't make as much sense to me. It was just like if they can catch the one guy and put him in jail she will be safe. I don't know that much about these things, but in TV shows and other books it is possible for bad guys to get people on the outside. But the suspenseful bit and who actually came after her was fun. Really after the beginning where Michael was super sexist it did get better. It was fun reading it, but it wasn't an amazing read either. I did enjoy it overall even if it was a bit ridiculous at times.
