The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

The Statistical Probability of Love at First SightTitle: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight 
Author: Jennifer E. Smith
Rating: 3.5/5
SummaryWho 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. She's stuck at JFK, late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon to be step-mother that 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 in seat 18C. Hadley's in 18A. 

Twists of fate and quirks of timing play out in this thoughtful novel about family connections, second chances and first loves. Set over a 24-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.

My Thoughts: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is a cute, funny book that reads like a romantic comedy. Hadley Sullivan's life changes when she misses her flight to London  by 4 minutes. Hadley, now stuck at JFK meets Oliver, a native European who is on his way home.
Although the book is predictable, it has a certain captivating air around it that makes you want to know more. Throughout the book, we journey through Hadley's character and all the pain she felt after her parents divorced. 
Most interesting thing of the book: It takes place over the course of  24 hours. Yes, 24 HOURS! 
For fans of Anna and the French Kiss, and romance in general, this is a book for you.
