Book Description

***I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading Sue Grafton or who loves James Patterson. Awesome storytelling. ~Reviews from NW Writers
***Susan Wingate reminds me of a charming Robert Parker. Read on! ~Michelle Lee, author
*** A suspenseful and well-penned novel that is sure to entertain! Read on. ~Suspense Magazine

For fans of mystery, thrillers and suspenseful fiction. Susan Wingate brings us the no. 2 book in the award-winning "Bobby's Diner" series, HOTTER THAN HELEN.


"...reads like "Thelma & Louise" meets "Law & Order: SVU!"

Running a diner isn't always a piece of cake. Now, operating Bobby's Diner with Roberta, Georgette Carlisle's old friend, Helen, comes back to town. Once again, Helen is attracted to Georgette's man. But Hawthorne Biggs isn't what he proclaims to be. When Helen goes missing, Georgette and Roberta jump into action. After braving separation, torture and near death, all seems lost.

Will Helen be the undoing of Bobby's Diner? Or will Georgette's beloved restaurant fall into the hands of unscrupulous businessmen?

HOTTER THAN HELEN, women's fiction that slips frighteningly into romance with the sharp edge of a dagger--possibly the same one used in a murder!

If you enjoy fast moving, engrossing crime/suspense/chick lit fiction with plenty of suspense and well-drawn characters you can almost reach out and touch, this book will not disappoint you. Did I mention suspense? There are scenes in "Hotter Than Helen" that are so intense I thought I was watching a movie. Susan Wingate has added another hit to her ever-growing list of well-planned, tightly-written novels that are pure entertainment.

I can't wait for the next one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hotter Than Helen a Hot Read June 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Book two in the Bobby's Diner series is an entertaining, fast-paced thriller, pitting Georgette against love and murder when old friend Helen comes back to town. Susan has created great characters that I have come to like and want to continue the journey with them. This book kept me turning the pages to the end, as did Bobby's Diner. A fun book to read in the heat of the summer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read June 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoy Susan's Bobby's Diner books. And Helen is a hoot and a half, and I mean that in both the good sense and the bad. I couldn't put this book down for long and the characters stayed with me. Character development is key to me, and "Hotter than Helen" has great characters. Recommended.
