Out July 26th: Perfectly Ordinary People

It’s always so scary releasing a new novel. You work for a year creating a new baby and then release it into the wild, to be loved, or to be hated. And my 18th novel is out on the 26th July 2022.

Still, some of the advance reviews of Perfectly Ordinary People are in, and it looks like it might all be OK after all 🙂

Here are a few excerpts. I do hope you enjoy it!

Every chapter left its mark on me. Nick’s writing took me to the edge one minute with all the tragedy and heartache but then pulled me back with wonderful comedy moments. And, always simmering away, is the greatest love story just waiting to be told.”

Nick Alexander’s sympathy and respect for his characters shine through every page making this book feel like a true labour of love. I have read all of this author’s books, but this epic tale of love and war is far and away his best yet.

I was drawn to this book as I am dropbox set in WWII however, I have never read about the LGBTQIA experiences during ww2. The historical content is hard to read, the descriptions of how gays and Jewish people in particular, were treated in the war was incredibly harrowing. However, this is a must-read that will stay with you for a long time. Highly recommended!”

A really enjoyable read that deals with family history and dynamics. It is a daul timeline of present day and World War Two. This was a compelling read that I couldn’t put down. You should definitely read this book.”

This is my first time reading anything from this author, but I will absolutely be going back for more! I read a ton of historical fiction and never have a read about the LGBTQIA experiences during ww2. The format felt a bit clunky at the beginning, but once I got used to it, I could not put this book down. I will absolutely tell everyone I know about this extraordinary story!”

  1. Hi Nick,

    Just had to write and say this book is outstanding. In fact, I actually had to cancel my first morning meeting as I needed to finish it. It will stay with me for a long time. Thank you!

  2. ps One of the bits I loved, aside from the main story, was the imperfection of Ruth and Dan’s relationship. Personally, he sounds like a bit of a douche, but then can’t we all be when it comes to relationships!
