Fans were so excited to see this beloved, award-winning, New York Times bestselling author return to her Chicago Stars football series with a long-awaited new entry about a star quarterback and a feisty detective playing for keeps. In addition to all the librarian love, First Star I See Tonight received FOUR starred reviews!
Booklist: "Phillips’ literary star shines bright in her dazzling (and long-awaited) installment in her Chicago Stars series.... Writing with a deceptively easy sense of grace, equally enhanced by her distinctively dry sense of wit, Phillips fashions an irresistibly sexy love story that is guaranteed to hit every romance reader’s sweet spot"
Publishers Weekly: “Phillips continues her popular contemporary Chicago Stars series (after Natural Born Charmer) with an utterly delightful standalone gambol that pairs up recently retired Stars quarterback Cooper Graham and private detective Piper Dove.... (Phillips) has a knack for nuance and stage-setting that grounds her characters and makes them feel perfectly real. Fans and newcomers alike are certain to fall in love with this delightful pair as they scrimmage and score.”
