Publisher Comments:

Is love at first sight possible or just an old-fashioned romantic idea? And what if, to further complicate things, you meet the love of your life and then lose her phone number? Then what if, after the impossible happens and you find her again, she's now about to marry a roguish lothario who is also your best friend? The complications don't end there for Peter Russell, the winning hero of James Collins' charming, generous, and romantic first novel. Part modern-day Jane Austen, part Tom Wolfe, Beginner's Greek is a romantic comedy of the highest order, with characters who are perfectly, charmingly real as they swerve and stumble from fairy tale to social satire and back again.

Deborah Fochler, February 10, 2010 (view all comments by Deborah Fochler)
A very interesting love story of how sometimes love does not take a straight path. Most times it is messy, convoluted and confusing. I found myself hoping that in the end love would triumph. The book grabs you from the beginning and you "have" to know how it ends. You want these two very nice people to end up together. But she marries his best friend and they spend years dancing around the truth - they love each other. But when he dies - will they end up together and will she discover the truth about her husband. He died having sex with her stepmother. This is one of those books with many turns and twists but well worth the journey.
