"I did not dare choose you for my partner, Mr. Smith," interposed Miss Dangerfield. "I know it is tiresome for a good player to go pottering around the links with women at his heels, and only suggested a game if you had no other engagements."

"Mr. Smith dare not plead another engagement," asserted Miss Ross, her dark eyes flashing a challenge. She is a lovely girl, but digs up the turf terribly.

"Smith has no game on. He has been over there talking for an hour," added Thomas, before I could say a word. I could have murdered him.

"I am delighted, and it is kind of you to ask me," I lied most effusively. "It is an easy game for us, Miss Dangerfield."

****.

It is a light story, very pleasant to read, especially, the main charater of Henry felt quite natural & this story greatly caught my interest. Worthy of attention story.

A great book! The play-by-play detail of golf games set in high society are exceptional. The love story line told from an avid golfer is a seldem seen insight into men's thoughts about love. Great book for a quick read on a rainy afternoon. It is light and humorous and can be recommended to any age group interested in a playful golf love story. Cute, simple, "G" rated.
