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

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight cover“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.”

Even though I got totally frustrated with Harley at times for not at least giving her dad and his new bride a chance, I thought she was a wonderful protagonist. I mean, you can’t really blame her for wanting things to go back to the way they were before her dad left and for holding a grudge against her stepmom-to-be without even meeting her.

What was great about Harley (yes, including how irritating she could be sometimes) was that she was a very realistic character. Though I felt the book was a little short and would’ve liked it to be longer, you got to see that she had depth to her character.

And the scenes between her and Oliver – the cute guy she meets at the airport and sits with on her flight over to the UK – were wonderful. They were sweet and fun and cute, and my only complaint was that I would’ve liked to read more about them!

This was a really fun, easy read – perfect to get through today, when I’ve been feeling gross with a cold and bad head and curled up on the sofa reading! I’ll definitely be looking forward to reading another of Jennifer’s books, This Is What Happy Looks Like.
