Everyone has a story to tell…

‘With its shades of light and dark, this delicious debut is a page-turner you’d be mad to miss’ SAMANTHA TONGE

Broken-hearted Esther Knight has swapped the old streets of London for the bright lights of New York. When she starts waitressing at the Starlight Diner, she realises it’s the perfect place to lie-low and lick her wounds.

That is until their newest regular, actor Jack Faber, decides to take an interest in Esther. But her past is holding her back and she’s not ready to fall in love again. Is she?

Desperate to start a new life, Esther begins to wonder if she can ever learn to let go. Could New York be just the place to set her free?


‘With its shades of light and dark, this delicious debut is a page-turner you’d be mad to miss’ SAMANTHA TONGE

‘Fresh, original and addictive’ PHILLIPA ASHLEY

‘Paints a perfect vision of the real New York so clearly that you might have closed your eyes and been transported there’ HELEN FIELDS

‘I found myself being pulled in by Esther and swept away by the charming Jack’ HANNAH MCKINNON

‘Fabulously entertaining! A great retro read filled with engaging characters you'll want to spend time with. But, just as you're getting cosy, Helen Cox shakes it up. Hidden secrets and past mistakes add a tension and darkness which makes this chick-lit with an edge!’ SAM CARRINGTON

Dull, dull, dull

Story is set in 1980s, reads like it was written in the 1890s. So boring, cant finish it.
