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

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. 

So, being the closet sappy romantic that I am, I really loved this book. It was a nice, easy read that still held some twists and emotional-type suspense, though stayed pretty mellow for a good chunk of the book. It was able to pull you into the settings (especially the airplane and trip) by taking notice of tiny details that pulled the scene together. The characters were pretty relatable, too. The story was sweet with some heart-wrenching parts mixed in; overall a very good read in my opinion. So, if you're in the mood for a classic, intriguing romance novel, go get this at Kettleson. I promise, you won't regret it.
