About The Book ...
“Liz. Where do I start? I suppose the end is as good a place as any.”
Boxing Day, 1997: Jason Smith, 29, and self-confessed ‘good guy’, is single again. And now that he is, it seems all the single girls – the 'Melanie Jacksons' of this world – are in short supply. Or are they? Has Jason stumbled on a foolproof way to find the girl of his dreams?
Both aided and hindered by his beer-drinking best buddy and reluctant father-to-be Alex, and his ever-wise, ever-sarcastic colleague Sian, 'The Good Guy’s Guide to Getting The Girl' follows Jason on a voyage of self-discovery as he experiences the highs and lows of trying to meet one’s soul mate at the turn of the millennium.

Liz was not the girl I’d hoped she would be. Any fantasies I’d had of ‘romantic happy ever afters’ soon gave way to a cast-iron certainty that I never, ever, wanted to see this girl ever again. And three years later I finally got around to telling her.
On Christmas Day.
Right after she’d proposed marriage...
