Suddenly unemployed, Allie Masterson returns home to Cary, North Carolina where she caddies for her father on the PGA Seniors Tour.

Fascinated with his uncanny ability, Allie is excited to meet the Green Whisperer—until she discovers that the easygoing caddy is actually Shoo Leonard, the boy who teased her relentlessly when they were kids. Despite Allie’s reservations, she agrees to use her sport science degree to become his trainer when Shoo sustains a hand injury—and then she falls for him. Shoo Leonard is grateful to Allie for her singular determination to get him ready for the PGA tour, but he isn’t ready for anything more. Still raw from a broken engagement and focused on his career, he’s content to be her fist-pumping buddy until the chemistry is undeniable. What seems like a happily-ever-after on the horizon takes a turn when Allie decides she’s become a distraction to Shoo’s career. Is it time for her to step away or can The Putting Green Whisperer find the right words to make her stay?

Christian Fiction Romance is one of my favorite Genre to read. The Putting Green Whisperer by Zoe McCarthy is the most recent book in that genre that I have read. Zoe McCarthy is a new to me author also. 

 Allie Masterson has returned home which is Cary, North Carolina, to be her Dad's Caddy at the PGA Senior Tours. She recently lost her job so she figured it was best to go home and help her Dad. Allie has heard about a Caddy who has the ability to know the contours of the Putting Greens and she is interested in meeting this caddy. Allie eventually meets "The Green Whisperer" and discovers he is actually Shoo Leonard, the guy who teased her all the time when they were kids. Shoo Leonard suffers a hand injury while golfing and Allie reluctantly agrees to nurse him back to health and prepare him to continue being a Caddy for the PGA Tour. Allie has a degree in Sports Medicine and is qualified to help him. Shoo Leonard is grateful for her help and wants to keep it purely business as he is coming out of a recent broken off engagement. Allie finds herself falling for Shoo the more time she spends with him as he recovers. Allie believes she is becoming a distraction to Shoo and decides she shouldn't continue caring for him as she is falling in love with him. Shoo though finds himself falling for her. Will Shoo be able to convince Allie to continue helping with his recovery? Will there be a relationship between Allie and Shoo?

I LOVE a book that starts out strong and ends even stronger. I was reeled into this book from the very first page and I enjoyed the entire book! Allie is young and still looking for her place in this world. Coming home after losing her job was a decision she did not regret. She at first was taken aback by seeing Shoo Leonard again, as he teased her so much as a kid. I LOVE the way their relationship came together and they both were second guessing things before affirming their relationship. Shoo is a strong Christian and he is regretful for teasing Allie so much. This book is about Second Chances, Forgiveness, knowing God's plan are greater then our plans. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Ficton. FANTASTIC BOOK!


Zoe M. McCarthy, a full-time writer and speaker, was pegged an expressive analytic in a personality test. Isn’t that an oxymoron? But it’s true. Zoe couldn’t survive without expressing her creative imaginings. Yet this retired actuary and introvert receives her energy from being alone in her home office overlooking the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains.

More from Zoe

The Putting Green Whisperer came about when my sister and I sat under a shade tree near a green at the PGA Senior’s Tour golf tournament. As we watched senior pro golfers and their caddies come through to putt, two young caddies standing just of the green with their backs toward us caught my eye. They talked quietly while their pros prepared to putt. He was tall and she was petite with her long blonde pony tailing protruding from the back of her pink ball cap. I day-dreamed how a romance might begin between the two caddies. I turned to my sister and pointed at the couple. “My next book will be about those two caddies.” My reviews of the book tell me readers who don’t care for golf enjoyed the romance and readers that love golf said I got the golf right.

This sounds like such a good second chance romance. I also wonder why Shoo teased Allie so much when they were kids.
