Book news: Milkshakes and Heartbreaks at the Starlight Diner by Helen Cox

12 May

I absolutely love the sound of this novel set in 1990’s New York. Isn’t the cover fab too?  It’s out on 4th July but you can pre-order the ebook of Milkshakes and Heartbreaks at the Starlight Diner for just 99p at the moment so get clicking! Helen has also released two short stories to introduce the book which are available free – head to Helen’s blog: to read them.



Next time you’re in New York, take a turn off Broadway onto East Houston Street.

There, you’ll see it: The Starlight Diner. A retro eatery curious enough to delight tourists and locals alike. Fifties tunes stream out of the jukebox long into the night, and it serves the tastiest milkshakes in the five boroughs.

Esther Knight waitresses at The Starlight Diner. She’s sharp, sarcastic, and she’s hiding something. Nobody at the diner knows why she left London for New York – or why she repeatedly resists the charms of their newest regular, actor Jack Faber.

Esther is desperate to start a new life in the land of the free, but despite the warm welcome from the close-knit diner crowd, something from her past is holding her back. Can she ever learn to love and live again?
