First Star I See Tonight

by Susan Elizabeth Phillips


Genre: Contemporary Romance



A no-nonsense sports hero and a feisty female detective go head-to-head in this funny, fresh, seductive novel from the award-winning New York Times bestselling author known for her unforgettable characters, heartfelt emotion, and laugh-out-loud humor

He’s the former quarterback of the Chicago Stars football team. She’s trying to make a success of

her very own detective agency. Her first job? Follow him. Let’s just say it’s not going well.

Not well at all . . .

Piper Dove is a woman with a dream—to become the best detective in the city of Chicago. First job? Trail former Chicago Stars quarterback, Cooper Graham. The problem? Graham’s spotted her, and he’s not happy.

Which is why a great detective needs a first-rate imagination. “The fact is . . . I’m your stalker. Not full-out barmy. Just . . . mildly unhinged.”

Piper soon finds herself working for Graham although not as the bodyguard he refuses to admit he so desperately needs. Instead, he’s hired her to keep an eye on the employees at his exclusive new nightclub. But Coop’s life might be in danger, and Piper’s determined to protect him, whether he wants her to or not. (Hint: not!) If only she weren’t also dealing with a bevy of Middle Eastern princesses, a Pakistani servant girl yearning for freedom, a teenager who just wants to fit in, and an elderly neighbor demanding that Piper find her very dead husband.

And then there’s Cooper Graham, a legendary sports hero who always gets what he wants—even if what he wants just might be an intrepid detective hell- bent on proving she’s as tough as he is.

From the bustling streets of Chicago to a windswept lighthouse on Lake Superior to the glistening waters of Biscayne Bay, two people who can’t stand to lose will test themselves and each other to discover what matters most.

My Review:

Every time I read a Susan Elizabeth Phillips book I say ‘Oh my gosh, this is my favorite!’

This story was no exception.

I love, love the whit and charm she brings to characters who are less than perfect, but utterly loveable.

In a normal world two people like Piper Dove and Cooper Graham would most likely never meet, much less fall in love. But that’s the beauty of romance- anything is possible (especially when you wish upon a star 🙂 )

This is a feel-good story with plenty of depth to tug at the reader’s heartstrings and leave them hoping for a happily-ever-after, which SEP delivers with such skill it left me closing the last page with a smile.

A highly recommended read, I give First Star I See Tonight 5 lovely kisses
