About the Book
Forty-something scientist Helen leaves her husband after twenty
uninspired years of marriage. Plagued with making the wrong decisions she looks
towards holistic therapy and the universe to guide her choices. She meets
hairdresser Alex and takes his advice to download the dating app SPRK.
Helen embarks on a voyage of self-discovery, paganism, hedonism
and desire. What could go wrong? Well for one secret agent CJ is convinced that
Helen is part of a notorious Romanian smuggling gang.
Six Tinder weeks is not the usual romantic novel; it is
realistic fiction full of twists, turns that will make you laugh out loud. If
you like something different, then you will enjoy this Pandora’s box of love,
action and the unexpected.

Looking for a book to lose yourself in and break your reading slump? Try Six Tinder Weeks!
Just about everyone has heard of Tinder and most of us know one or ten folks who have used the app. In this book we meet Helen, who is experiencing a tumultuous time in her life and after receiving an amazing makeover, her new stylist recommends a Tinder-like app to help spice up her life.
We follow Helen through her ups and down with the dating app and while most of her experiences are ultimately unsatisfying, she learns a lot about herself through the journey. She learns to love herself and what she will and will not put up with when it comes to potential romantic relationships.
Helen’s story is so realistic, so authentic. It made me laugh, it made me feel for Helen and I was able to The author, Bena Roberts, put a great deal of work into making sure that her readers were getting a genuine story about a woman who could be their neighbor, sister, and friend. I laughed, I pondered, I empathized with Helen, and I found myself wondering what I would do if I were in Helen’s position. Very interesting to think about! 🙂 I enjoyed reading this book so much because it is so realistic, such a well told story. Thank you, Bena! Also, I am hoping this is going to be a series. I’m not ready for Helen’s story to end!
