I thought this story would be about an interracial couple, but it wasn't. A very well written story just not what I thought it was.

As a fellow author (romance fiction...write it, don't read it...I read Mystery fiction)But I know the effort it takes to finish a manuscript, one that doesn't reflect the total excitment we feel when getting what we know to be a WONDERFUL story off our minds. Idelia's story is just that...A wonderful story thats paced and poised, graceful in it's delivery. I also know that HALF way through we just can't WAIT to know what our readers think... so I was reading... at work... at home...in lines.. ONLINE... and then I go.. WAIT a minute... I'm loving this and I need to tell her! Connor is a wonderful character full of BELIEVEABLE ability. Martin, Paxton, Hayes are GREAT male characters... developed thoroughly and believably. I could just see them lusting the poor woman at every turn.(smile)The build up to the kidnapping was not over set. The inner workings of the characters brains, helped the readers to feel the growing suspense. It was like choreography...Very well done. All I know was that I couldn't LAUGH hard enough at the restaurant scenes... they were GREAT! Well, let me continue reading this 5 star book! On to its climax I'm right there...the Sedan is closing in! Can't put it down!

This first novel by Dr. Idelia Phillips is suspenseful with hefty doses of romantic interludes.
Connor Phillips has been acting Chief Legal Counsel for Ellenton River Company for the past two months. When the president announces who the permanent Legal Counsel will be, Connor feels cheated, like something has been stolen from her. Immediately she contacts an old friend to look for other employment. Since Connor has been instrumental in developing a procedure to safely dispose of radioactive waste, she has an offer in three days.
The new firm that hired Connor is the legal counsel for Hayes and Son Enterprises. Hayes is currently in a legal battle with Connor's former employee, Ellenton River Company. Both companies submitted identical proposals to the Federal Government, which means one was stolen. Franklin Hayes III, does not know if Connor can be trusted so he has his security people tail her.
Now add to all of that, the fact that Franklin does not trust women in general, he is spoiled and egotistical and Connor has lit a fire in him. What they discover while tailing her is that there are at least two other people tailing her, also. Now Franklin does not know if he should be afraid for her, or if his heart should be afraid of her.
I expected an intense mystery because the story was filled with double crossing, kidnapping and theft. But this was a light mystery and the characters lacked a certain depth. Though the book was entertaining and the subject was an excellent one, there was an air of predictability. I applaud Dr Philips, for the research accomplished to present this sensitive topic to the reading public. I look forward to more factual fiction from her.

I just finished reading the marvelous debut novel of Dr. Idelia Phillips and was completely taken in by her protagonist Dr. Connor Phillips, lawyer and techno-insider. After being passed over for a promotion she most richly deserved, Dr. Connor Phillips sets her sights on another employer, confident that her skills and background will be an added plus to APPLIED MICROIALS, a highly successful technology firm. The sparks start to fly when she meets her new employer Franklin Hayes III and the two embark on a rollercoaster ride of suspense, romance and intrique. They meet their toughest test when Connor is kidnapped and held hostage by people bent on having her reveal secrets vital to MICROBIALS. It is a ride and a half as Connor and Franklin must wrestle through their own personal agendas to find their true togetherness. Star Light, Star Bright showcases the talented storytelling of Dr. Idelia Phillips and should be added to your must read list. Waiting anxiously for the next story.

Star Light, Star Bright is a mix of intrigue and mystery with some passionate romance intermixed. Connor Phillips is beautiful, highly intelligent and challenges Franklin Hayes at every step during their encounters-be it business or desire. Connor wants to prove to Franklin that she only wants his trust and his love. Franklin believes that Connor is trying to sabotage his company. That is, until she is kidnapped and he sees his world coming to an end. For deep in his heart, he knows that Connor only wants the best for him and his company. After all, she wished for it upon a star.

Excellent read! The story line romance with the big business intrigue (and a side of kidnapping) was perfect, and laced with just the right amount of "laugh til you cry" humor. The main character, Connor, is a woman we would all like to be....beautiful, super intelligent, and genuinely human. This story takes you on the ride of your life. Once I started I couldn't (or wouldn't) put it down (I was done in a day and a half). Idelia Phillips deserves a big round of applause. I only have one question......when is the next book from this author going to be available!
