Genre: Contemporary

First Impression: What’s with the cover?

Synopsis: Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
Imagine if she hadn’t forgotten the book. Or if there hadn’t been traffic on the expressway. Or if she hadn’t fumbled the coins for the toll. What if she’d run just that little bit faster and caught the flight she was supposed to be on. Would it have been something else – the weather over the Atlantic or a fault with the plane?
Hadley isn’t sure if she believes in destiny or fate but, on what is potentially the worst day of each of their lives, it’s the quirks of timing and chance events that mean Hadley meets Oliver…
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.

200 word review: I’d been keeping an eye out for this after spotting it on Goodreads and picked it up in the first shop that had it. I don’t get the green-grass cover for the UK release but hey ho…

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight follows Hadley on her dreaded journey to her father’s wedding in London. She’s misses her flight, and waiting for the next one meets Oliver.

When I began reading I wasn’t sure if this was going to be just too sweet but I needn’t have worried because while Hadley and Oliver’s ‘love’ story is lovely the whole book has so much more to offer.

The relationship between Hadley and her father is shattered. Hadley is only going to his wedding at her mother’s insistence. Oliver is going over to visit his family as well but he’s not forthcoming as to why. Both of these stories unravel without dragging. It did take me a couple of chapters to get into Jennifer E Smith’s narration but ended up loving it. And I’ll admit it, the scene at passport control – I swooned.

I understand why this book has so many good reviews, I had a great time reading it.
