Piper Dove was trying to make something of herself and bring back Dove Investigations. She will get a job but will be found out quickly, though it will turn around when he hires her.
Cooper Graham was an ex-quarterback who had opened his own nightclub. He was living life but then Piper thrust herself into his world and it was forever turned upside down.
First Star I See Tonight is the eighth book to the series Chicago Stars by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I enjoyed this story. It has been about two years since I had read the seventh book. Luckily you don’t have to know the characters from the previous book, although they are mentioned, this could be read as a standalone novel.
Piper’s character was out there. She was a little crazy but really it was a defense mechanism to keep those around her at an arms distance. Even though she was unconventional she got the job done. When it comes to relationships she doesn’t want one as she knows it will lead to disappointment. I was glad that Coop was resilient. Coop’s character was a man who had gotten whatever he wanted and he liked it that way. Getting together with Piper was not in his plan but he went with it. I liked that Piper kept him on his toes and that he never truly gave up.
The rest of the novel is filled with strange friends, some thieves, kidnapping, and a buy out that was going wrong. There was a lot that was happening but somehow it fit and made sense.
