After spending his youth envisioning being locked in golfing combat with Tiger Woods, Chris Hackett has enjoyed being the big man on the course ~ not Augusta but Hack’s Golf Learning Centre in Charleston, South Carolina. Chris is content with shepherding his varied clients through their golf swing together with the devoted assistance of his friend and green keeper, Cack Pruitt.
Chris’s life takes an unexpected turn when a new student turns both his head and Hack’s future upside down. Molly Cusack, a political correspondent wants to motivate Hack’s clientele to perfect their swings by appealing to their political loyalty and giving them a target to aim for.
What starts off as a bit of fun, and nicely adding to Hack’s modest coffers, turns ugly when someone takes it all a little too personally.
Ray Blackston serves up a hole in one in this engaging tale of golf, love and political maneuvering. Chris, Molly and Cack are such endearing characters that I imagine I might meet them at my local golf range (if I played gold, that is!). The political sparring is pithy, Cack’s insults hilarious and the romance sassy and satisfying. Ray Blackston’s name on a book draws a smile from me without even opening a page and the reading experience only widens the smile and brings a little bit of joy to my world. Par for the Course is fabulous ~ keep stepping up to the tee, Ray!
