Secrets and Fries at the Starlight Diner by Helen Cox

MoMo’s Book Diary recommends this as a witty 5 star read.                  

This is the second book in Helen Cox’s Starlight Diner series.  I have not yet read the first book but have purchased it to read now so I can catch up with the story of Esther.

This second book revolves around the character Bonnie who didn’t feature in the first book so you will miss nothing by reading them out of order – like me!

The intriguing characters are friendly and welcoming. I very quickly related to Bonnie and cared about her and her situation. The story is well paced, and had me reading a page or two at every opportunity.

The author brilliantly entertains us with a touch of everything – romance, humour, mystery, and suspense – and I am looking forward to reading more of this series.

Thank you to Avon and NetGalley for allowing me to read and review this book prior to publication.

Synopsis

The smart second novel in the Starlight Diner series

What brings Bonnie Brooks to The Starlight Diner? And why is she on the run?

As the front-woman in a band, Bonnie is used to being in the spotlight, but now she must hide in the shadows.

Bonnie only has one person who she can turn to: her friend Esther Knight, who waitresses at the Fifties-themed diner. There, retro songs play on the jukebox as fries and sundaes are served to satisfied customers. But where has Esther gone?

Alone in New York City, Bonnie breaks down in front of arrogant news reporter, and diner regular, Jimmy Boyle. Jimmy offers to help her. Can she trust him?

When the kindly owner of the Starlight Diner offers Bonnie work, and she meets charming security officer Nick Moloney, she dares to hope that her luck has changed. Is there a blossoming romance on the cards? And can Bonnie rebuild her life with the help of her Starlight Diner friends?
