  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 4/9/2010

    " Standard Jenkins charcaters and story, this time set in the world of women's golf, the LPGA. That may not sound glowing, but Jenkins writes with such wit and voice that his characters jump off the page. You don't have to be a sports or golf fan to enjoy this. A short, easy, good-time read. "
