Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Andy Andrews comes the return of one of our favorite fictional characters: Jones, the Noticer. Jones’ wise stories have comforted and guided millions. In Just Jones, navigate the hope that the impossible can come true.  

At 3:29 a.m. on May 22, a telephone rings in Orange Beach, Alabama. Breaking the sleepy silence inside the bedroom of New York Times best-selling author Andy Andrews, a hastily whispered message heralds the news that Andy has been waiting on for seven years: Jones is back in town. Apparently, however, he is also in jail.  

The old man is tight-lipped about the circumstances surrounding his brief incarceration. After arriving to bail him out, Andy is shocked to discover that his trusted friend has already opened an unusual business in one of the resort town’s most high-profile shopping districts.

As the town moves from spring to summer, a practical joker is becoming bolder and more inventive with every prank that is pulled. Could Jones be behind some of it? Why? What’s the truth about that 400-pound table in his store? And why does it look as if every person Jones meets has a secret they will reveal only to him?  

With melodic writing and a whimsical, authentic voice, Andy and Jones take you on a sometimes-hilarious journey to discover the heart of people and learn a few valuable lessons along the way, including: 

  • The importance of perspective
  • The power of connection to create peace in a community
  • And the ability you have to make the impossible come true

Just Jones is book three in the the Noticer series, following The Noticer and The Noticer Returns. Each book is a stand-alone fictional novel based on true events, following the character of Jones, a mysterious elderly man with endless wisdom who always appears to show up exactly when he’s needed most.

Critic Reviews

"This latest soon-to-be-classic from Andy Andrews continues to challenge us to think about life and our current situations from different and unique perspectives. And always with the focus of helping us evolve, grow, and prosper. In addition, the story that surrounds and propels all this valuable information is one of the best (and most fun) you'll ever read." (Steve Jacobson, CEO Fairway Mortgage)

"Just Jones is a rare accomplishment--a mystery that is at times touching but often so funny that I laughed out loud. When one wraps an awesome story around wisdom with the power to change lives...well, how many great books can you name like that? Just Jones is a masterpiece." (Michael Hyatt, New York Times best-selling author)

"In much the same way Andy Andrews presents on stage - making him one of the most sought-after speakers in America - in Just Jones he weaves a rollicking sidewinder of a tale that'll delight his fans anew. Get to know a troubled girl with a funny name who experiences a character arc rarely manifested in contemporary fiction." (Jerry B. Jenkins, novelist and biographer)

Wow What A Story

I love a good story. This new book, “Just Jones” by Andy Andrews is a good story. I have enjoyed meeting and getting to know Jones through the books and this story introduces us to even more Jones.

I started thinking at the beginning of the book who is the Jones in my life and actually I’ve had many, not just one person. Then I think who have I been a Jones to and am glad to remember that there have been a few people I have touched. I have been given to and given out and that is in part what this story is about.

Andy mentions in the interview at the end of the audio book that he wanted to give people something to talk about and he has followed through with that goal.

I love the references to the Andy Griffith show and the applications he incorporates in each of his stories but especially the Jones’ books.

This story does not disappoint. And can be read, listened to many times to always glean something else from.

Thank you again Mr. Andrews.
Solid nuggets (acorns)of wisdom throughout and what a pleasure filled story. I loved the peace table and changed lives by Jones perspective lessons. Ollie and the young-(old) girl were great characters.

Andy Andrews is awesome as always!

Andy offers the reader/listener an exceptional access into his home and community in "Just Jones". His characters are as real as it gets (since you could go meet most of them!) Jones' presence and wisdom are always a blessing to the reader and Andy's adept reading of the tale breathes life into the people and makes you feel like a close friend is relating a personal event to you.

Just Jones is a great book. I buy Andy Andrews audible version of every book that I can by him. He brings every characters to life.
In Just Jones I love several of his characters (possibly all but one) and the lessons that were woven through out the stories.
Simply I loved the book, it was great! So thankful for Andy Andrews and the books he has written.

Best Jones book!!

This is my favorite Jones book Andy has done!! And of course his performance is awesome!! He is my favorite author to listen to. The way he pulls multiple stories together into one seedless story is superb. I always appreciate Andy’s stories too for there ability to teach me while I’m being entertained.

Andy and Jones nothing else comes close

Andy was fantastic with all the voices. Jones would make a wonderful Hallmark mini series.

They just keep getting better!

Andy did it again!!!
I have the hard copies of and have read The Noticer and The Noticer Returns a while ago and I just finished listening to the audio of this one. I raved over the first Jones book and then I raved over the second one claiming it was even better than the first but now Just Jones has surpassed them both! It touched my heart. I laughed and I cried. Some moments where lighthearted and easy going while others where serious and drew my undivided attention. It is an amazing book and I will definitely purchase the hard copy. I have recommended this book as well as the first two books to everyone I know. They just keep getting better and I love them, especially Just Jones! Thank you, Andy!!!

Great Story!

After reading many of Andy Andrews books, this one did not disappoint. There are several parallel stories that merge in the end to bring a heartwarming conclusion to this great story. I highly recommend it.
