Book Review ~ The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

 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.

My Thoughts: I was actually pleasantly surprised that I liked this book as much as I did.  I'm not usually a big romance fan, but I quite enjoyed this book.  I found the characters to be highly likeable and the storyline to be interesting enough to hold my attention long enough for me to read this in just two days.  It was a pretty easy read, but enjoyable. Oh, and Oliver is British!!!!  As I read this I would speak all his parts in a British accent in my head.  What's not to love about British guys??? Maybe I can add romance to the list of types of books I like!!! At least all the ones with British male characters!!!
