Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. Having missed her flight, she's stuck at JFK airport and late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon-to-be stepmother Hadley's never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport's cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he's British, and he's sitting in her row.
A long night on the plane passes in the blink of an eye, and Hadley and Oliver lose track of each other in the airport chaos upon arrival. Can fate intervene to bring them together once more?
Quirks of timing play out in this romantic and cinematic novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves. Set over a twenty-four-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.
Yay for finally getting up more than one blogpost this month. It actually is one of my goals this month to spend a bit more time with this blog. I have big plans for it in the coming months and I hope that it all works out 😉 In the meantime, I’m back with a book review on The statistical probability of Love at first sight by Jennifer E. Smith. I randomly found this in a book store and loved the cover, so I picked it up. I was also more intrigued to finish the book after reading a review on Life of Kitty.
I’ll try not to give the ending away since I am sure there are still many of you that have not read this book yet. The book tells the fated story about two people meeting as well as a teenage girl’s struggle to understand love, why her father left her mother, why her father is remarrying, and why her mother won’t remarry. I find the Charles Dicken’s quotes from Our Mutual Friend throughout the book only enhance the story.
“Is it better to have a good thing and lost it, or never to have had it?”-p67
“And O there are days in this life , worth life and worth death.”-Prologue
I recommend this book if you are looking for a fun quick romantic read, great for a single day or a few hours if you are a fast reader. The chapters move rather quickly and Jennifer E. Smith’s writing is comical and fun. I would love to read another Jennifer E. Smith book in the future. *Fingers crossed * I’ll be back with another post for you this week!
