Publisher's Summary

A star quarterback and a feisty detective play for keeps in this sporty, sexy, sassy novel - a long-awaited new entry in the beloved award-winning, New York Times best-selling author's fan-favorite Chicago Stars football series.
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. Problem? Graham's spotted her, and he's not happy.
Which is why a good detective needs to think on her feet. "The fact is...I'm your stalker. Not full-out barmy. Just...mildly unhinged."
Piper soon finds herself working for Graham himself, 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 it 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 Piper find her very dead husband.
And then there's Cooper Graham himself, a legendary sports hero who always gets what he wants - even if what he wants is a feisty 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.

Good story - ok narration

With the inevitable comparison to Anna Field's narrations of SEP's books, Nicole Poole was always going to have a tough time measuring up. She did an ok job overall but her narration at times sounded robotic and uninterested. Her dialogue was passable but lacked the inherent sparkle of SEP's characters that Anna Fields was so effortlessly able to mirror.

It's interesting that for each new book after the loss of Anna Fields/Kate Fleming, the publisher has gone with a different narrator... For me, I can't help thinking (and have done for a while) that Amanda Ronconi would be a good fit for SEP...

As for the story, I enjoyed it. I will probably go back and read the print version at some point rather than re-listen to the audio. (I've re-listened to the audio versions of Anna Fields SEP narrations numerous times!)

New narrator...again

Maybe this is unfair, due to the fact that I adore the incomparable Ms. Anna Fields and she is terribly missed, BUT I'm thinking that if a new narrator is set to read a book in a series (already on audio), maybe said narrator should do her homework. Something as simple as a last name mispronunciation should not irritate the listener. HOWEVER, when the last name is Calebow, and this is a major player within the entire series, it should not be pronounced "Cal-i-bow" (short i, short o). That's just ridiculous.
Silly, I know. But it distracted from the story every single time she said it.

Another good book in the series

I’ve really enjoyed listening to this series. Wish they had more of the series on Audible though. This book had a slightly different format to the earlier books in the series but that’s a good thing as you’d soon get bored if they all had the same formula. Good characters, plot, pace and narration. I’ll definitely keep my eye out for more from this author.

Enjoyable light hearted read.

Both characters are likeable and story follows typical romance formula. Dalogue between the main characters is witty and funny. If you have enjoyed the author's other books, this one will not disappoint.

End of an era?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I can’t count how many times I have listened to all the previous SEP books but I was disappointed in this one. Book was only 'read' not 'performed' as had all her previous books

Has First Star I See Tonight put you off other books in this genre?


What didn’t you like about Nicole Poole’s performance?

No magic. Nicole Poole has obviously never listened to previous books and her mispronunciation of Phoebe Calebow really grated on my nerves.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Story was OK but I would not have know it was SEP

Any additional comments?

Still can't find anyone as tallented as Anna Fields
