Summary: 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. She's stuck at JFK, late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon to be step-mother that 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 in seat 18C. Hadley's in 18A. 

Twists of fate and quirks of timing play out in this thoughtful novel about family connections, second chances and first loves. 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.

Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is an adorable read that will absolutely make your heart melt.

When we're first introduced to the main character, Hadley, I wasn't sure if I was going to like her. But I ended up loving her character. She's hurt by her father's new marriage to a women she doesn't know. She's just a very lost girl at the beginning of the book. Hadley grows so much during this short book. She really becomes someone that's admirable.

Oliver, the love interest, is just as sweet. Oliver, too, is broken. He also has this adorable air about him that I loved. Hadley's and Oliver's conversations were amazing. Some were deep, some were silly and all were magical.

The plot of this one was adorable. Who doesn't like a romance that starts on an airplane? Smith definitely did this aspect well. Even though The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight takes place over 24 hours it never feels rushed in any aspect. The story line of this one couldn't be better!

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is a must-read for fans of contemporary that are looking for something different that will most definitely make them smile.

I love that even though this book happens in such a short period there is no "insta-love." That is reason alone to read this book.

This one definitely made me want to go to the airport and see if maybe there was an Oliver there waiting for me:) I wasn't sure I was going to like Hadley either, but she grew on me with each page and I have to say, she handled the situation with her father with FAR more grace than I would have. I was ready to reach in there and smack him:) Really fantastic review Katie!
