Book Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

Title The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

Author Jennifer E. Smith

Release Date January 2, 2012

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.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was a cute, but quick, read. It wasn't really what I expected, but that's not to say it was bad.

The story was a bit too unrealistic for my taste. The entire story takes place over 24 hours. Because of this, it feels like Smith rushed to get all the loose ends tied up. It would have made more sense to me to have the story take place over a longer period of time than to squish everything into 24 hours.

While the book was very predictable and fluffy, it might be something I'd recommend to someone looking for a quick read.
