You could read this book in one sitting. But after the first page, you probably won¿t be able to, since you¿ll be making sure the doors are locked and the curtains are drawn. FOGS IN AUGUST is at once a suspense-thriller in the ¿stalker¿ genre and a romance with fully realized and likeable characters, including the one who turns out to be stalking the main character, Sarah. Ms. Helms delivers up several delectable dishes, including beautiful and handsome characters, laugh-out-loud or heart-thumping descriptive phrases, and a twisting and turning plot. Her descriptions and similes are so fresh, it¿s like having a salad in the garden on a warm spring morning. But it¿s the story itself that gives the reader a lot to chew on, from the odd and touching goings on at the senior center where the main character, Sarah, is the director, to the remodeling she¿s doing at her family farm, to the delightful characters that populate this book. Gordon, Sarah¿s best friend, is a gay man who provides a sounding board for Sarah and a shoulder to sometimes cry on. Linda is the beautiful and enigmatic roommate, who propels Sarah into eye-opening introspection. A retired school teacher at the center, who was one of Sarah¿s teachers, provides unexpected and challenging guidance when Sarah is at her wits end. The very best thing is you don¿t know who the true villains are because, in this small Southern town, everything is dripping with that Southern charm and overt friendliness, so you don¿t know who to fear until it¿s too late! ---Ronald L. Donaghe, author of Common Sons

Protagonist Sarah runs home to a small town hoping to hide but comes face to face with everything she's running from, her internal conflict of who she really is. She meets and falls head over heels for an enticing divorcee and struggles in silence with her love for a straight woman. Along the way she's tempted by an ex-boyfriend and an ex-love. Tangled throughout the book are peeks through the eyes of an obsessed stranger. This is not only an incredibly well written thriller it also makes you ache for the protagonist and her struggle of coming out to herself and finally everyone around her. I'm anxiously awaiting this first time author's next book.

Once I opened this book, I couldn't put it down. It was a little sad when I got to the last page, because I loved the characters so much, I didn't want to let them go

I've always had trouble finding books with lesbian or bisexual themes that I could relate to. Fogs In August is just enough like real life to let me relate to the characters, but it was the suspense that kept me turning the pages.
