Miracle At St Andrews – James Patterson & Peter De Jonge. ★★★★

Blurb; Seasoned pro golfer Travis McKinley is cruising toward a new season when he misses a putt on the 18th green. Just like that, he’s down and out and off the Senior Tour, his career all but dead.

Then Travis is visited by a mysterious stranger whose vision is clear. Go back to the beginning. The very beginning.

Taking his advice both literally and to heart, Travis and his family travel to their ancestral home – Scotland. In the place where golf was born, he’s able to look beyond getting the round ball in the round hole. And when Travis steps onto the Old Course at St. Andrews, the magic of the game takes over . . .

My Review; James Patterson is one of my favourite authors. I just love his writing style and how easy they are to read. This is a shortish read at just under 200 pages but a different read for me. This story is all about golf and golf tournaments not my usual choice. However, I did learn a lot about golf from it and it did have a great story line to it.

This is book three in the Travis McKinley series so I came into this series very late. However, it read perfectly fine as a standalone. I would love to go back to the other books if I find time. The story includes the famous Tiger Woods! It has a hidden message within to never give up, try again and keep going. It has an uplifting feel to it! The main character is a very determined man and alongside all the other characters I felt proud.

A well deserved four stars from me highly recommend. I’m surprised at how much I enjoyed it to say I know nothing about golf and it isn’t one of my interests.
