"Entertaining light read!"

Piper O'Donnell hasn't exactly been happy since her husband told her they had to move to Woodlawn, Ohio. Even though the move was supposed to come with a big promotion, Piper misses New York City. About the only socializing Piper can find is at the Woodlawn Country Club. Really, Piper only has one friend, Tanya. The other two ladies they play a foursome with are not exactly what Piper would call friends, but she does her best to impress them anyway. At least there's a major hottie in the liquor store Piper can flirt with, because there's no way she would jeopardize her marriage. So when her husband tells Piper he has to go to the city for the weekend, Piper decides to add the sunroom she's wanted. When she returns from talking with the contractor, Piper notices her husband's car in the drive, which is strange. Why did he come home when he was supposed to be in New York? Shrugging it off, Piper decides to surprise him. However, Piper is the one surprised when she finds him dead in the bathroom with blood all over him. Now Piper finds herself the number one suspect in his murder investigation. And that's not all she discovers.

Who killed Piper's husband and why? What other secrets does Piper discover about her husband? Will Piper be able to find the perfect outfit for the funeral?

PAR FOR THE COURSE is an entertaining read. Jennifer Vido tells a fast-paced mystery with a bit of romance thrown in. While this is not by any means a deep read, it is light and will keep any reader turning pages. I feel the heroine could have been a bit more sympathetic, as at times, I found myself cheering for her, while at others, I found myself really disliking her. But if you're in the mood for something to keep you occupied for a few hours, something that moves fast and is light, this is the book for you.
