My wife is an avid book reader. She found a book through Amazon Prime's free books each month and one of them happen to have mentioned Yakima and the Yakima River.

The book is My Sister's Grave by Robert Dugoni. It's part of the Tracy Crosswhite Series.

"I'm great." Kaufman introduced his wife. "We live over in Yakima."

Anytime Yakima is mentioned in a book or TV show or anything I get excited. This is one of those instances where I just had to share it.
