My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The First Star I see Tonight by Susan Elizabeth Phillips is a 2016 William Morrow publication.
This book is simply marvelous!
It has been a while since I’ve read a book by SEP, too long, in fact. This book reminds me of just how good she really is.
Piper Dove owns her own private detective agency, but it’s barely making ends meet. Currently, her assignment is to investigate former football superstar,
But, when her cover is blown, Cooper insists she reveal her client’s identity, which she refuses to do, but doesn’t mind telling him who on his staff is skimming off the top and various other issues inside his club. Realizing that Piper could be a valuable asset he hires her himself, but may soon regret that choice, when she proceeds to push all his buttons, buttons he didn’t even know could be pushed… by anyone!
This is one zany, highly entertaining installment in the ‘Chicago Stars’ series. Piper is my kinda gal. No frills, no lace, so fuss, no muss for Piper. She doesn’t have a fake bone in her body! She calls it like she sees it,
Cooper, has lived in a privileged, entitled world for so long, surrounded by beautiful Hollywood actresses and ‘yes’ men, that he doesn’t know what to think when Piper doesn’t automatically bow down and worship him at his feet. So, flabbergasted is
There is, of course, a mystery to solve when it becomes clear that someone is out to get Cooper, which leads to one of the most screwball investigations I’ve seen in a while.
The characterizations are nearly perfect, the dialogue witty and sharp, with a stellar supporting cast.
If you are looking for a top rate romantic comedy or romantic suspense novel, look no further!
