The Reindeer Drum, book 7 of Jim Carver’s iconic Canadian series Life at the Lodge, features an autumnal golf game, in which attempts to humble the course fall short. More laugh out loud mishaps include the bicycle clip battle and the flying eagle act punctuated with an accordion lost to gravity. The proprietors of the Lodge Pauline and Henry need a break from challenging guests and their children. Sarah’s contact with the reindeer drum evokes a conduit to the spirit world which surprises Moon and Sami. Highly enjoyable!
