Par for the Course
By Janet Elaine Smith 

Dreams have a way of turning into reality . . .

     In less than one week, twenty-three year old Mechi Jeanotte's world has been completely turned upside down. With the death of her beloved father, she experiences double heartache when the man she is in love with unexpectedly jilts her by walking out of her life. She tries to pick up the pieces of her shattered heart by accepting a position as a golf pro at St. Andrews Golf Course, just outside Aberdeen, Maryland. She hopes this change of atmosphere will give her a fresh new outlook on life.

     Her first job assignment is to meet with a client at 7:30 AM for a private golf lesson. Arriving early, she decides to practice her swing. When her ball flies high, she goes to retrieve it; what she finds instead is an old, dirty sphere the likes of which she has never seen before. She decides to hit this object; and upon contact with the strange orb, she is enveloped in a cloud of feathers and darkness. When her eyes are able to focus once again, she gazes upon a handsome man with a Scottish accent. She is puzzled when he tells her his name is Robert Keith, the Viscount of Kintore. Looking around at her surroundings, she immediately notices a dramatic change in scenery. Everyone is dressed in old Shakespeare costumes and talking with a Scottish accent. She finds nothing is familiar; it is as though she has been transported to another place and time. When she asks what year it is, she is shocked to hear that it is 1560 and she is in Scotland. Could her mind be playing tricks on her or has she really been transported back into time?

     Janet Elaine Smith has penned a fast-paced, light and lovely book. The research that she has conducted for this book is very evident by the flawless historical details she is able to provide her readers. Her writing style is refreshing to savor and I found myself actually hating to see this one end. I feel this author has the talent to write an endless supply of romance books that will be around to appease many future generations. Talent such as she exhibits only comes around once in a lifetime. Very highly recommended.
