First Star I See Tonight by Susan Elizabeth Phillips–#Reveiw-4.5stars

First star I see tonight::.jpg

The First Star I See Tonight is a delightful and entertaining read.

Susan Elizabeth Phillips never fails to make me laugh. I just love her books.

First Star I See Tonight is a well-written and humorous contemporary romance. Although this is the eighth book in the Chicago Stars Series, it can easily be read as a standalone.

Piper has no interest in falling in love. She doesn’t do emotions. Piper was tough, competitive, and snarky; just like her dad taught her to be. When Piper’s father died, she bought his business, Dove Investigations. She was determined to be the best private investigator in town.

Cooper Graham loved his life. He was thirty-seven-years-old, a Chicago Stars legend, and retired. Cooper left football while he was on top so that he could stay that way. His new passion and vision was to create a nightclub empire. When Cooper discovered that a nutty woman, wearing different disguises, was following him on a daily basis, he shrugged it off. At first, it didn’t bother him, but when the crazy stalker started coming into his nightclub, Cooper had had enough.

What could Piper possibly say to Cooper to appease him? She couldn’t exactly tell him, who hired her to investigate him, or why; could she? But, that’s exactly what he wanted to know. And, Cooper got whatever he wanted. Well, apparently, not this time. Before Piper left the nightclub without answering his questions, she nonchalantly told him, that someone was pilfering his profits. Cooper was livid. How could this wacky woman accuse a trusted friend, of stealing? Unfortunately, Piper was right; so Cooper hired her.

Initially, Cooper was not attracted to Piper. So, why was he falling for the stubborn, independent, and smart-mouthed woman? Because, Piper wasn’t like any other woman, that he’s ever met. Piper was not romantically, interested in him. Piper could also be sexy as hell when she wanted to be.

The last thing Piper needed was to fall for a conceited, arrogant ex-football player, like Cooper. Piper avoided relationships at all costs. But, like Cooper, Piper had a big, mushy heart underneath her tough exterior. There are several subplots, adding depth, to this well-written, humorous, and captivating novel. First Star I See Tonight is a delightful and entertaining read. Susan Elizabeth Phillips never fails to make me laugh. I just love her books.

The Spring Girls by Anna Todd–#Book-Review

The Spring Girls 850.jpg

New Literary Fiction Novel by Anna Todd, Coming 1/2/18!

The Spring Girls is a modern-day version of the best selling classic, Little Women, by Louise May Alcott. The book focuses on four sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy Spring. They live in New Orleans, on a military base, with their emotionally, unavailable, mother. The girls desperately miss their father, who has been fighting in Iraq, for several months. The characters come alive as the author brings the reader deep into the hearts and minds of the Spring sisters.

The oldest Spring sibling, Meg, yearns to be a mother and marry well. She desperately wants to erase her past mistakes and ruined reputation. Having a wealthy and prestigious husband by her side, Meg feels, will do wonders for her self-esteem and social status. Jo, however, is just the opposite. She has no interest in finding love or getting married. She wants a successful career in NY as a journalist. Beth is the co-dependent workhorse of the family. It bothered me that Beth was allowed, and even expected, to pick up, clean and cook for the entire family. Beth was riddled with social anxiety, stayed in most of the time, and was homeschooled. Amy, the youngest sibling, was twelve and treated like a princess. All four girls would grieve their father’s absence differently, but the older three would face their demons and begin to emotionally grow and change.

I enjoyed reading The Spring Girls but found the pace slow. The writing is very good, however, and the storyline captivating.

Thank you, Gallery Books and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
