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

Synopsis (from Goodreads

Pages: 236
Publisher: Headline Book Publishing
Published: the 1st of January 2012

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.

What I Have to Say

I really loved this book. It was such a lighthearted read. Especially since so many of the books I read leave me crying, which is why I like them, this one was a welcome change. I could just read it and not have my emotions toyed with by a sadistic author.

I loved the characters and the humour. It made me smile.

There's not really much more I can say about it though! Just that it's really sweet and nice to read >< I would recommend it if you're looking for a comfort read. Maybe something to read on holiday (especially for the plane ride!!!) especially since it's so short, so easy to read in one sitting.

It's perfect for comfort reading!


  1. I found your review interesting in a baffling manner. You repeatedly declare this book to be a lighthearted and comfort read, despite the fact that it discusses several serious themes, amongst which divorce and grief. I was surprised to see you "enjoy the humour" of this "easy read", when it is clear (at least from my point of view) that the author was trying to illustrate the possibility of love despite all difficult and painful odds.

  2. Just discovered this blog. Good Review :) I am currently reading this book and enjoying it. Who doesn't love cute british boys. Please check out my blog.
