Cassie Burdette used to carry clubs on the PGA tour—now she’s swinging them at the Qualifying School for the LPGA Tour. The competition is fierce, but the standout so far is Kaitlin Rupert—whose talent and beauty are eclipsed only by her attitude. Cassie is shocked to find Kaitlin’s psychiatrist murdered-and even more shocked to be identified as a prime suspect.
A Buried Lie
Up-and-coming golfer Cassie Burdette has made it through the hell of Qualifiying School—only to land herself in the hell of a pro-am tournament. Placed on a team with four doctors from the pharmaceutical company Meditron, she hopes she can survive their oversized egos. But when one of them turns up dead, Cassie suspects these doctors are playing a game of their own—and now she just hopes she can survive.
Putt to Death
Cassie Burdette is going through a rough patch on the LPGA Tour, so snagging the touring pro job at a posh Connecticut Country Club is a stroke of good luck. But many members feel that efforts to turn this fancy male domain into a Jack-and-Jill, environmentally friendly club are strictly out of bounds. And when Cassie stumbles upon the body of an unpopular member who has been beaned, it appears that all is not fair on the fairways of Stony Creek.
Fairway to Heaven
Joining the tri-tour team golf tournament at legendary Pinehurst, North Carolina, was not Cassie Burdette’s brightest idea—especially since her team is driving her nuts and she’s also agreed to be maid of honor at her friend’s wedding. Then the bride’s father disappears—and not even her suddenly stellar swing can lift Cassie’s spirits.
At the bucolic Mount Holyoke College campus, Cassie Burdette is steeling her nerves for the US Women’s Open, the most prestigious—and toughest—women’s golf event in the world. She’s already rattled by the absence of Laura, her favorite caddie, and by a controversial invitation to a men’s pro tournament. But then a rival dies, and Cassie learns that in high-stakes golf, competition can truly be murder.
