This is the second book I have read by Chris Hill and it is an unputdownable page turner.
The story itself without giving too much away is about a journalist who has issues with making himself appear attractive and interesting to the opposite sex and so he resorts to a website called PUA for dating tips. What results is quite a comical romp into the world of dating for Rob, a junior employee in his firm.
Many of the characters did make me laugh in particular Crazy Al, Rob himself was a bit of a plonker but saying that in a nice way. Many of the women in his office scared me never mind Rob. Loved the twist at the end ! I actually kept wondering after that last chapter whether I had missed some vital clues about it earlier in the book.

Exeter Central Library was the meeting place today for our tech guru Simon and our fabulous crime author, Max Brandt. Simon was doing a spot of WordPress training and handing over the reins of Max’s new website, MaxBrandt.co.uk which launches later this week.
In between tech-talk and aside from discussing his new title that launched on 14th February, Blind Cupid, they also chatted about one of his other passions, the theatre. Right now, Max is fully immersed in rehearsals for his performance of Fagin in Oliver with the Kingsbridge Amateur Theatre Company – details will be revealed in a post by him very soon!
Max has been treading the boards in various guises for a decade and has written and produced his own play, Dominion, which we have the pleasure of publishing in May.
