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

by Jennifer E. Smith
Publish: January 2nd 2012
Publisher: Poppy/Little Brown
Hardcover, 236 pages

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. Having missed her flight, she's stuck at JFK airport and late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon-to-be stepmother 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 sitting in her row.

A long night on the plane passes in the blink of an eye, and Hadley and Oliver lose track of each other in the airport chaos upon arrival. Can fate intervene to bring them together once more?

Quirks of timing play out in this romantic and cinematic novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves. Set over a twenty-four-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it. 
4 Stars
Another cute novel! This one was a bit different though. I never read a contemporary novel where the characters meet on an airplane. 

This novel isn't just about finding love; it also talks about divorce and how people deal with divorce, death and how that affects people, and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight also mentions books and meaningful quotes. 

Hadley is still really mad at her dad for leaving her and her mom and marrying someone else, who Hadley has avoided at all costs, except for now where she has to meet the future-step-mom because Hadley is forced to go to the wedding. Although I never experienced what Hadley experienced, I could  still really relate to her. Hadley is the average down to earth girl.

Oliver was really mysterious. He wasn't mysterious when I read the airplane portion of the novel, but afterwards he sort of was. 

I was definitely rooting for Hadley to find Oliver!

Sorry my review was so short, but I really did love this novel!

Purchase this at: Amazon / B&N / TBD


  1. I really enjoyed this one too! It was definitely a great read. I agree with how Oliver wasn't mysterious at first, but sort of became a mystery later. Great review, even if it was short :)
