About The Author...
Peter Jones started professional life as a particularly rubbish graphic designer, followed by a stint as a mediocre petrol pump attendant. After that he got embroiled in the murky world of credit card banking. Fun times.
Now, Peter spends his days – most of them, anyway – writing.
His latest book “The Good Guy’s Guide to Getting The Girl” is his début novel. It wasn’t a ‘historical’ romance when he started out – it just took that long to write. The sequel (snappily entitled “The Good Guy’s Guide To Keeping The Girl”) is currently sitting on his desk. Waiting to be edited. Occasionally it seems to wink.
He is also the author of three and a half popular self-help books on the subjects ofhappiness, staying slim and dating. If you’re overweight, lonely, or unhappy – he’s your guy.
Peter doesn’t own a large departmental store and probably isn’t the same guy you’ve seen on the TV show Dragons’ Den.
Peter Jones has written five self help books and now he has now shifted his focus to fiction. his first novel The Good Guy's Guide To Getting The Girl, is a honest, witty story of Jason finding himself and searching for his true love.
First off the book is seriously witty, I loved alex, Jason's sarcastic best friend, I say on holiday giggling at Alex's smart mouth, comebacks and helpful and not so helpful advice. Jason is softer than Alex, he is a likable and believable character.
The book is one of those addictive reads, where you find yourself staying up that little bit later, missing your bus stop and bumping into door handles because you are reading and not bloody looking where you're going. It's full of that good old dry british humour and I just felt so satisfied after reading it.
I truly believe that Peter has made the very hard transition to non fiction to fiction effortlessly. I am hoping, fingers crossed that this book is not the last we hear from the Jason, Alex and the fantastic ensemble that Peter has created and it the ending of the book is anything to go by my wish may come true!
This book is worth reading, the only down point that I can find and this only being a bit pedantic, is the cover, I just don't think it suits the book somehow, but that is literally the only bad thing I can say about this book.
