This is the first book I have read by Mrs. Phillips and it will not be the last. I loved the mystery, romance, bickering, butt-kicking, and humor that had me laughing out loud. Piper's dad brought her up showing no emotion and the ability to take care of herself. When Piper's investigation company is asked to help with protecting Cooper Graham, a local retired football hero, all sensibilities go out the window with one exception - falling in love. Great book! Will be going back and start from the beginning of the series to catch up.
