Read full description of the books Love In The Air:Be warned - I have found the secular world's answer to BD Dayehu - James Collins. Midway - no, actually, a few pages in - I thought, is this his first novel? Yep. Which would stand as good argument against the 'most authors best books are their first.' Not so much with Jimmy here.
So I was excited for this one because it sounded cute - like the movie Serendipity which I totally enjoyed - guy meets girl on an airplane, a life long fantasy of finding true love in a random twist of fate and alas, he loses the number. So I thought this would move into interesting territory of maybe this wasnt meant to be/twists and turns of such nature. But no.
So I am going to do some plot spoiling because, for Gds sake, do not bother. First of all, Holly, the woman of his dreams, is another Christine of With all my Vomit - she is beautiful, but a certain type of beauty, blah blah blah, and she is funny, and perfect, and nice, and blah blah - she totally falls for Peter who strikes me as incredibly boring, personally, over this five hour flight, and is devastated when he does not call.
Well Fate brings Holly back into Peter;s life three years later - but, alas - oh those funny tricksters, she is dating his best friend. The best friend, by the way, is a bleeping bleep bleep, but somehow Peter the Great is still best friends with him and Saintly Holly goes on to marry him. I guess this is supposed to further the ... um ... irony? Anyway Peter is heart broken and watches best friend cheat on Holly left and right. Peter marries the incredibly annoying Charlotte, sealing the fate that he and Holly will never blend their one dimensional souls together. But wait. The night of the wedding, Holly's husband Jonathan, after having a fling with Charlotte's step mother, is struck by lightning and dies. I'm not kidding. So now Holly is a widow and Peter is stuck for life. But don't worry, as they harbor their secret crushes, and continue to be the noble and perfect people they are, Charlotte realizes they have feelings for each other and is thrilled for them (??), especially once she reconnects with a beau from her past and runs away with him, thus leaving the star crossed lovers to no longer be star crossed. Yay.
In the meantime, we meet the Evil Boss who is there for, um, humor? Certainly not to lend any credibility to the story. Dialogue would go something like:
Evil Boss: Peter, I hate your guts and I am looking to destroy you. Wah ha ha.
Uch dont ask - Holly ends up with some boyfriend and this happens to be the head of Peter's company and when Peter decides he must have Holly the boss is all, well who can resist Holly, sure go ahead.
The BDE part was especially apparent at moments like this - describing Holly as having a horrible cold - eyes red, nose sniffly, lips chapped - and I am thinking, let me guess, she had never looked more beautiful. Yup. Vomit.
Read information about the authorJames has been living and writing in Greece since 2002. He lives with his partner on the small island of Symi where they have a photographic shop and art gallery.
Since moving to Greece, James has concentrated solely on writing words rather than music, though he does still improvise on the keyboard. He first started writing stories as early on as he can remember, and has been trying to get it right ever since. Currently he is turning his fingers to screenplays but has also written award winning lyrics, books for musicals, and erotica, as well as novels and travel books. He has also written corporate plans, business plans for theatre companies, and housing strategies for local authorities, but let’s not get into that ‘writing as a job’ area. James prefers to stay in the unprofitable world of fiction writing and films.
James learned to write music on the piano when he was six years old. When he was seven, he discovered manuscript paper, and his parents were a lot happier. Since then, he has written cantatas, the first at age 14, revues, musicals, choral works, piano pieces, cabaret songs, and lots of other bits and pieces. He can sometimes be seen playing live piano on Symi, and sometimes can be heard practising the clarinet and oboe, though not at the same time.
