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

10798416Four minutes changes everything. Hadley Sullivan 17 misses her flight at JFK airport, is late to her father’s second wedding in London with never-met stepmother. Hadley meets the perfect boy. Oliver is British, sits in her row. A long night on the plane passes in a blink, but the two lose track in arrival chaos. Can fate bring them together again?

I’m not one for cliche contemporary novels but I’d heard amazing things about this book and hey, why not?

This book follows Hadley’s first time going overseas, to London, for her father’s wedding. She holds a massive grudge against him, resenting him for leaving her and her mother to marry a British woman. Hadley is four minutes late to her flight, and has to book another one- meaning she’ll probably be late to her father’s wedding. Because of those four minutes, she meets Oliver in the boarding area, who’s waiting to go on the next flight to London as well. Call it fate, but they end up sitting in the same row. When the flight lands, the chaos at Heathrow Airport separates them. Now she’s left to find her way to her father’s wedding, all the while thinking about Oliver and whether she’ll be able to see him again.

So, what is the statistical probability of love at first sight?

This book was short, about 200 pages. I started and finished it in a day. It was a cute, fluffy read. It’s one of those feel good books that you read after watching an intense TV show or after reading a suspenseful book. All in all, it was a worth it read based off the time it took me to finish it and the simple and straight-forward, yet captivating plot.
