    About "Christina Jones"

    1. Christina Jones

      I ve written all my life, but only became a published novelist in 1997 Before that, I wrote short stories and newspaper articles for pin money while doing a series of naff jobs In fact I ve had twenty seven jobs and been sacked from nineteen of them for writing when I should have been working I ve been, among other things, a shop assistant, waitress, cleaner, secretary, factory worker, market researcher, nanny, bookseller, night club dancer, civil servant, blood donor attendant, fruit picker and barmaid I m now, apparently, a Real Writer.Writing for a living is wonderful a dream come true and I now manage to combine writing novels, short stories and articles with not doing the housework, not doing the gardening, not cooking much, but at least attempting to look after my husband the Toyboy Trucker and my daughter and our 17 rescued cats I was born in Oxford and have lived in Berkshire, Bedfordshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Northumberland, London and Jersey I blame my parents both for my itchy feet and my romantic soul My Dad was a circus clown Poor Billy, Prince of Laughter Makers and my Mum who trained as a teacher, came from an army family, and had lived in six countries before she was 15 They met and fell in love while the circus was off the road and my Dad was working as Santa Claus in a department store My Mum, at home for Christmas, was the fairy in his grotto I was entranced by the way they met, that they were from such different backgrounds, and that their love for one another managed to survive every obstacle and objection thrown in its path Every book I ve written has their story at its core I grew up in a Berkshire village, in a tight, happy, secure and very working class community My childhood was idyllically happy, and my friends from those days are still my best friends now My novels reflect this community spirit, and all have small groups of people crossing class, age and gender who are friends and work together through the roller coaster ride of life Also, because the women I grew up with were, by necessity, tough and go getting with a sense of humour, my heroines are gutsy and strong Real women in real situations And the fact that the backgrounds to my books mirror my own past experiences is no coincidence, either.My parents were great storytellers and avid readers, and taught me to read long before I started school, so I started writing my own stories at about five years old without thinking it in the least odd Writing was an obsession, a friend, a way of life I had my first short story published at 14, still blissfully unaware this was unusual However, having a novel published was my life s ambition and one that took another thirty writing years to achieve Having won a couple of awards for my short stories, I joined the Romantic Novelists Association in 1993, and was lucky enough to be voted runner up for the New Writers Scheme Award at my second attempt in 1995 Dancing in the Moonlight was published by My Weekly Story Library, and as it didn t have an ISBN wasn t classed as a novel I was, of course, ecstatic at this literary elevation and it was at the RNA Awards Lunch that I was approached by an agent who suggested I should try writing full length commercial fiction Going the Distance was the result, and amazingly it was sold to a publisher straight away and then, equally amazingly, chosen for the 1997 WH Smith Fresh Talent Promotion and I haven t touch wood and fingers and all other extremities crossed looked back since Librarian Note There is than one author in the database with this name.

    1. Steeple Fritton is a quaint country village in the doldrums The village pub, The Crooked Sixpence, is run by the less than charming landlord, Hogarth, who is hardly welcoming There are empty shops and a bed and breakfast that is barely managing to break even.Posy is in the doldrums, too When the novel starts she has been dumped by her childhood sweetheart and, as their wedding day arrives, she decides to run away and make a new life for herself in Swindon As you do Luckily for Posy, a problem wi [...]


    2. Christina Jones is probably one of my favourite romance chick lit writers, and I think it s because the love lives of the characters aren t all that are going on, so you can enjoy a bloody good story while working out who will end up with who and you know that s going to happen This story focuses on Posy and Lola, both who end up a little lost and wanting start over in the little village of Steeple Fritton Posy was born and brought up there, but her childhood sweetheart and one time fianc has ju [...]


    3. I really enjoyed Tickled Pink Christina Jones did a great job at keeping me in suspense as to who was going to end up with whom It was also wonderful to have the entire village involved in the story or less I was unable to put the down the book once I d started it I just had to read and find out if the BB was going to be saved and if Lola and Posy got their happy endings Another great book by Christina Jones.


    4. A very easy read for a bank holiday weekend Girly chick lit, based quite local to me, which added an extra interest Won t set the world on fire but enjoyable and fun story about two women of different ages that have been let down by men and need to start their lives again I particularly liked the clamping story line and laughed out loud


    5. Perfect summer afternoon in the garden read I probably emphasize with all the characters that have in one way or another all hit rock bottom and are looking for direction in their lives It s funny and real, and while the happy endings are there, they aren t what you expect Lovely read Will be checking out of her work


    6. I really enjoyed this novel from Christina Jones which has just been rereleased on Kindle.I d already met the characters in a subsequent book so I knew who was going to end up with who, but that didn t spoil my enjoyment as the plot and machinations were so much fun I m looking forward to of Jones backlist being released.


    7. This book would have been a lot better if Posy wasn t so rude and judgmental She was supposed to come off as charming but I hated they way she always justified being mean about and to other people Lola was okay and so was Ellis Flynn didn t have much of a personality and the ending was not that great.


    8. Everything you would expect from Christina, great read but slightly predictable Has all the usual funny and quirky characters though and this one is also about a funfair, so makes the story line interesting.


    9. This reminds me a bit of Maeve Binchy, in that it tells a story of a small village and the people in it as do so many of MBs books Not quite as fluent to read but a pleasure to go back to at bedtime A really really goid book has to be read during ghe day as well


    10. Being based near Newbury and involving small village life moterbikes, and traction engines, this was a winner for me some of the plot felt a little squashed and stretched in places, I think so that the ending all kicked off at the same time Good.


    11. I found this book in a shop in Mollymook, Australia and loved it It was amusing to be so far away from home with the familiar village names in the book I really enjoyed the book and have told Christina so


    12. It took me a while to get into this book But once I did, I enjoyed the storyline and enjoyed the fact that the will they won t they went on a lot until the end when it was tied up nicely Definitely one for the holiday reading.





    13. Enjoyable to read, a little predictable in places Happy endings for everyone, though not quite the endings I d expected.



    14. Easy reading purchased for holiday so easy to pick up and put down.Good story loved the ending too Can t really go wrong with a chick flick kinda book Would recommended for hols


    15. The first Christina Jones I ve read and can t wait to read another one I loved this book and couldn t wait to see how it all worked out in the end.



    16. What a treat First book I ve read by Christina Jones Loved it Full of great characters Brilliant heartwarming storyline and I loved the nostalgia.




    17. I love reading about the quirky characters and villages in Christina s stories Her books always have lots of laughs.
