I have no advise to give from a personal point-of-view, but the
following commentaries seem to be regarded highly by others:

"JPS Commentary on Jonah" 
by Uriel Simon 

"The Message of Jonah: A Theological Commentary"
by Terence Fretheim

"Obadiah, Jonah, Micah (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries)"
by David Baker

"The Paradox of Human Existence: A Commentary on the Book of Jonah" 
by Lifshitz, Goldwasser, Nathan, and Lifshitz 

"Jonah: A Commentary (The Old Testament Library)"
by  James Limburg

I hope that helps you out a bit!
