Cassie Burdette is playing in her first pro-am tournament. The group she plays with on the first day consists of four employees from Meditron Pharmaceuticals. The tension is very obvious to outsider Cassie, and is never far from the surface, even when they go out for dinner later. But when the only woman in the group turns up dead, Cassie is surprised. The police are quick to rule it a suicide. That is where all the evidence points, but Cassie doesn't believe it for a second. What really happened to this woman? And will investigating this murder hamper Cassie's playing in the tournament? Meanwhile, her love life, or lack there of, is also hitting some major road blocks.
This series intrigues me because of the inside look at the LPGA. The golf scenes are written well, and I keep coming back to find out just how well rookie Cassie will play. Unfortunately, the mystery is not as well developed. Frankly, I didn't believe Cassie's reasons for investigating this death. Amateur sleuths need a compelling reason to be involved, and this book lacks that. Second, the ending felt rushed and not as developed as most of the books I like. However, I've really grown to care about Cassie and her friends Joe and Laura.
The golf and the characters are interesting enough to bring me back for a third round. Hopefully, the mystery itself will be better polished next time around.
