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

Summary:(from goodreads) 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.

Review: This book is a really sweet contemporary romance. I like the fact that the book takes place over 24 hours which keeps things moving pretty quickly. The plot was pretty simple and predictable but I really enjoyed it. The converations between Hadley and Oliver were some of my favorite parts of the book. I really liked Hadley as a main character. She was easy to relate to and she changed alot by the end of the book. I wish more information about Oliver had been given. By the end of the book, i still felt like I barely knew anything about him. I guess this is realistic since they have only known each other for a day, but I was still left wanting more. Overall, I really liked this book though.
