it is unusual for me to review two unrelated books by the same author in a row but after finishing This Is What Happy Looks Like (Review here) I was struck by the uncontrollable urge to re-read this one
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.
While i may not have enjoyed this book as much as This Is What Happy Looks Like it is written beautifully and captures those moments between the meeting of strangers and the realization of something more perfectly. an if it had not been written so beautifully i may never have picked up her other books. while it is only short i feel that for this story it was the perfect length and packed full of as many warm and fuzzies you can squeeze into a suitcase.
“It’s not the changes that will break your heart; it’s that tug of familiarity.”
“Did you know that people who meet at least three different times within twenty-four hour period are ninety-eight percent more likely to meet again?”
“It’s one thing to run away when someone’s chasing you. It’s entirely another to be running all alone.”
“Is it possible not to ever know your type-not to even know you have a type-until quite suddenly you do?”
… i could go on and on… this author is just too quotable.
