5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just for Golfers, March 7, 2005
This review is from: Fairway to Heaven (Golf Lover's Mysteries) (Mass Market Paperback)
This book starts with Cassie Burdette visiting her shrink. One of her issues is that she's agreed to be bridesmaid for a friend, Jeanine, on the same weekend that she's playing golf in a tournament with her father, who left her mother for another woman when she was young, and her boyfriend who she's not getting along with very well.

The first 40 to 50 pages are rough going because we are bombarded with characters, the bride to be, her family including a lecherous father and a bossy aunt, the fiance's family, Cassie's own family, father, step-mother and stepbrothers. It was difficult to keep track of who was who, and I almost gave up, but was glad I didn't because then there was an accidental death, the bride's father disappeared, an enemy of his got shot at a wacky bridal shower where the guests were required to wear costumes, and Cassie got picked up for drunk driving after a beer and a half, by an over-zealous woman cop. The book became a page-turner that I could not put down.

Cassie did find herself in danger a couple of times, but it wasn't caused by her own stupidity. I especially liked that and that she always had the help of two dependable cohorts, Laura, a friend and caddy, and Joe, a sports psychologist.

As neither a player nor a viewer of golf, the tournament setting was not a problem, but might be an enhancement for golfing fans. There is a handy glossary at the end to help with unfamiliar golf terms, such as yips, one I did look up.
