The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
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?
I really liked this book, but it didn’t blow me away. It was sweet, charming, and heartwarming, but it’s probably not a book I’ll be gushing about for weeks.
Smith’s writing style is perfect for love stories, and Hadley’s story was told extremely well, but Hadley was really the only well-rounded character in the book. I didn’t really get the vibe that Hadley and Oliver were in love, and if the book summary hadn’t told me so, I probably wouldn’t have thought they were. Still, it was a good book. The banter between Hadley and Oliver was entertaining and adorable. This was a really cute story and an easy read that any lover of romance would devour.
