The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

The Statistical Probability of Love at First SightFrom Goodreads:    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:

-    This book really surprised me. It was so much more and better than what I expected.

-    I thought this was going to be a total contemporary romance, and there is a bit of that, but it is also about two people their struggles with life.

-    I enjoyed getting to know Hadley and Oliver, and the way they each dealt with their struggles and families. 

-    I really like how Hadley and her dad talked things through. I think a lot of parent/child relationships are similar to Hadley and her parents.

-    I liked Hadley a lot, and I found myself relating to her and wanting to be her friend.

-    Oliver is such a gentleman. He just might be added to my literature crushes. I'm still not sure on this one yet, but he is close!

-    I LOVE that this whole book happens within 24 hours! So cool! So much happens, and I have had long days, and they feel like they last forever. I want more 1 day books!

-    There could be more about Oliver and Hadley, but I really like this as a stand alone book. The author did a great job tying things up and giving us just enough.
