STORY: She’s going to be blamed for missing her father’s wedding, and not just by her dad, but her mother too. Yet as Hadley stands in the airport, a mere four minutes late, she watches the plane she should be on take off.
Those four minutes change everything as she arranges for a new flight that might not get her to London in time; remembers what it was like seeing her dad for the first time in months; meets a cute guy; and worries about being in a confined plane.
Four minutes… that’s all it takes for Hadley’s world to change…
REVIEW: Like so many of the novels on my shelf, this is another one that’s been on my bookshelf for a long time. I don’t know why I didn’t read this before now but I did always intend to, and as usual I either wasn’t reading or was distracted by other shiny books. As someone who’s only read one novel by Jennfer E. Smith but owns several, reading The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was inevitable, especially once a Netflix adaptation was announced.✈️🧡‘THE STATISTICAL PROBABILITY OF LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT’ IS A CUTE READ🧡✈️ Review of the 2012 novel by Jennifer E. Smith. #BookReview #BookReviews #YABooks #YALit #Reviews #Review #Romance #RomanceNovel #RomanceFiction #Netflix Click To Tweet
The novel is a quick and easy read that has only about 230 pages and is a story that moves at a fast clip. It’s about two people easy to like, but we assume are each holding back things about their respective lives we want to know. This is most true about Oliver since we are, throughout the entire novel, in Hadley’s head and learn far more about her as a result.
I really like the premise even if, at times, it’s implausible. And the Charles Dickens and classic literature additions are very fun and just fit the plot. The story also fits well with the cute title and best of all, I love the easy way you can breeze through the novel. It’s the perfect kind of beach or plane reading. ❤
