Item description for Par for the Course - The Keith Trilogy (Book 3) by Janet Elaine Smith...

Par for the Course returns to Dunnottar Castle and the Keith clan, but in a new and exciting way. Mikki Jeanotte, a young golf pro at St. Andrew's Golf Course, just outside Aberdeen, Maryland, has been summoned by a strange-sounding woman who insists on having a private early-morning golf lesson. As Mikki waits for her, in a dense fog, she trips on an oak root, finds a black gooey orb she hits to kingdom-come, only to have it burst into a million feathers, and wakes up with her head on the lap of the man of her dreams. How did Mikki get from 1996 and St. Andrew's Golf Course, just outside Aberdeen, Maryland, to the 1500s and St. Andrews Golf Course, just outside Aberdeen, Scotland, with her head in the lap of Lord Robbie Keith, Viscount of Kintore, and in the company of the world's first woman golfer: Mary, Queen of the Scots? She soon discovers that the fate of Queen Mary lies in her hands, and she enlists Lord Robbie's aid to carry out the most far-fetched plan history has ever known. The twist at the end will have you laughing for months to come. It's history like you've never seen it.

Reviews - What do customers think about Par for the Course - The Keith Trilogy (Book 3)?

Page turner!  Nov 15, 2007
Michelle Jeanotte, better known as Mechi, works as a golf pro in Aberdeen, Maryland. Late one evening she fields a mysterious phone call from a would-be client, who demands a lesson the next morning at 7:30 sharp. Although it's not especially convenient, Mechi feels a strange compulsion to do as the woman demands. On the foggy golf course, waiting for her very late client, Mechi trips over a tree root and knocks herself out. She wakes to find herself lying with her head in a stranger's lap. In another Aberdeen - the one in Scotland, not Maryland - and in another time. The man cradling Mechi Jeanotte is none other than Lord Robert Keith, and the woman standing nearby on this long ago golf course is none other than Mary, Queen of the Scots.

This third volume of Janet Elaine Smith's Keith Trilogy is largely set, like the first, at the Keith family's home of Dunnottar Castle. However, this time travel romance is decidedly different from historical novels DUNNOTTAR and MARYLEBONE. Like all such tales (or at least all such tales when they're well written), it blends fantasy with solid historical background. It is very much like the first two volumes, though, in the way Smith combines fictional characters with the real historic figures her prose brings to life.

You're going to care about those characters. All of them, the "real" and the invented ones equally. That's what made me keep turning pages far into the night, because I couldn't go to sleep without knowing what happened.
 
Somewhere in Scotland ...  Sep 1, 2004
At first glance of the book's title, I instantly pegged it as a nicely written romance novel that has something to do with the game of golf, the Golf Course, and all that. But when I started reading it, I was in for much more. It has history, fantasy, and romance blended altogether. The story begins in the year 1997.

Mechi Jeanotte, 23, from Paris Texas, is a golf pro at St. Andrew's Golf Course near Aberdeen, Maryland. She loves horses and has great knowledge of history, Scottish history in particular. Foremost, she has a gift and passion for golf. History, golf and horses. All these provide supportive impact as she enmeshes with the other characters. That particular week hasn't been good. She tries hard to busy herself as she deals with her Dad's death and her boyfriend's betrayal. Then one late night, a strange-sounding woman who calls herself Liz Stewart, telephones her and insists on having a private early-morning lessons in golf.

As Mechi waits for her, she is soon transported in another time and place - to the year 1561, in Aberdeen, Scotland. She wakes up with her head on the lap of the Viscount of Kintore, Lord Robbie Keith. A somewhat exciting fairy tale, huh. Will she find true love? But there's more. Mechi finds herself in the company of Mary, Queen of Scots, an avid golfer herself. Mechi and Mary become friends, only to discover that the Queen's fate is in her hands. Will she change history and rescue Queen Mary from being betrayed and beheaded? This book sure challenged my historical knowledge of Mary, Queen of Scots! The twist at the end will grab you for some time, as the story forms an enormously satisfying conclusion. It's mesmerizing historical fantasy with some magical romance demonstrates the ingenuity that is definitive of Janet E. Smith. What an enjoyable and entertaining read! Absolutely recommended!

 
Par for the Course is a great read!  Jul 22, 2004
Twenty-three year old Mechi Jeanotte from Paris Texas loves history, horses and golf. A bad week in her life sets her off on a romantic fantasy that will have everlasting effects. As a golf pro at St. Andrews Golf Course outside of Aberdeen Maryland she tries to stay busy as she deals with her fathers death and her boyfriends betrayal. Will a visit from her brother change things?
And just who is Liz Stewart?

Her love for horses and her gift for golf as well as her knowledge of Scottish history will make an impact on her life and the lives of others. Can she change history? Can she find true love? Follow along on Mechi's travels as she lives out her dreams. It begins in the year 1997 but Mechi just may find herself in another time and place.

The author, Janet Elaine Smith, captures a time in history and puts a new spin on a time we rarely hear about. This book is a fun and entertaining read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Awesome!  May 4, 2004
The story begins in the year 1997. Michelle "Mechi" Jeanotte is a golf pro at St. Andrew's Golf Course near Aberdeen, Maryland. A lady, calling herself Liz Stewart, phones Mechi late at night, urgently requesting lessons in golfing. Mechi is soon transported back to the year 1561 - in Aberdeen, SCOTLAND!

Mechi meets Mary, as in the Queen of Scots, and becomes close friends. Then there is Lord Robert "Robbie" Keith, the Viscount of Kintore, the handsome Scotsman. His father, William, is Mary's guardian/protector. Of course, Mechi and Robbie are attracted.

Mechi, knowing her history well since her own ancestry blends with all this, feels she must try to change history and rescue Mary from her fate of being betrayed and beheaded. But how could Mechi convince the Keith Clan and Mary of what she knows will happen without them believing she is either a witch or crazy?

***** AWESOME! Do not worry if you know nothing about the game of golf. You do not have to and the story will not really teach you anything about the game, itself. However, you will learn history and enjoy every second of it! Will Mechi stay in the year 1561 or somehow return to 1997? One thing is for sure, I will never tell you. Highly recommended reading! *****
