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.

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.

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!)

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.
