About the Book

Book: The Putting Green Whisperer

Author: Zoe McCarthy

Genre: Christian fiction

Release date: 2018

Suddenly unemployed, Allie Masterson returns home to Cary, North Carolina where she caddies for her father on the PGA Seniors Tour. There, she encounters a man who possesses an alluring gift of reading the contours of the green. Fascinated with his uncanny ability, Allie is excited to meet the Green Whisperer—until she discovers that the easygoing caddy is actually Shoo Leonard, the boy who teased her relentlessly when they were kids. Despite Allie’s reservations, she agrees to use her sport science degree to become his trainer when Shoo sustains a hand injury—and then she falls for him. Shoo Leonard is grateful to Allie for her singular determination to get him ready for the PGA tour, but he isn’t ready for anything more. Still raw from a broken engagement and focused on his career, he’s content to be her fist-pumping buddy until the chemistry is undeniable. What seems like a happily-ever-after on the horizon takes a turn when Allie decides she’s become a distraction to Shoo’s career. Is it time for her to step away or can The Putting Green Whisperer find the right words to make her stay?

"The Putting Green Whisperer" by Zoe McCarthy is a book that if I saw it in the library I wouldn't check it out. Why? Because, who wants to read about golf and caddies? But, then this book is a perfect example of why you shouldn't just pick a book or not  pick that book because of what's written on the back of it. I even enjoyed the little parts that talked about the golf shots and etc.

I really enjoyed the romance part of this book and the forgiveness lessons are ones we can learn from. 

I recommend a complimentary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

About the Author

Zoe M. McCarthy, a full-time writer and speaker, was pegged an expressive analytic in a personality test. Isn’t that an oxymoron? But it’s true. Zoe couldn’t survive without expressing her creative imaginings. Yet this retired actuary and introvert receives her energy from being alone in her home office overlooking the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains.

More from Zoe

The Putting Green Whisperer came about when my sister and I sat under a shade tree near a green at the PGA Senior’s Tour golf tournament. As we watched senior pro golfers and their caddies come through to putt, two young caddies standing just of the green with their backs toward us caught my eye. They talked quietly while their pros prepared to putt. He was tall and she was petite with her long blonde pony tailing protruding from the back of her pink ball cap. I day-dreamed how a romance might begin between the two caddies. I turned to my sister and pointed at the couple. “My next book will be about those two caddies.” My reviews of the book tell me readers who don’t care for golf enjoyed the romance and readers that love golf said I got the golf right.

Betsy Barnes said...

This sounds like a fun read, thanks for sharing.

Zoe M. McCarthy said...

Thanks Rita, Stormy, and Betsy for your comments. I learned many of the challenges pro golfers and caddies face that the public may not realize. I shared some, but I concentrated on Allie and Shoo's relationship among the challenges. I loved writing their story.

Zoe M. McCarthy said...

Thank, Bea. I had a great Aunt Bea. One of 7 kids. She was small but feisty. She was concerned when she found out my sister and I had not taken voice lessons. I hope you do read it, Bea.

Roxanne C. said...

My only experience with the sport was a phys ed elective that included golf, mostly for fun. I'm more interested in the romance, but one never knows when what one learns from reading may be information one will use.

Zoe M. McCarthy said...

Roxanne, the romance is the main focus, but I hope you might learn something about struggles from what pro golfers and caddie sometimes struggle with. Thanks for commenting.
