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. 


The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight begins with Hadley missing her plane by four minutes. She is due at her father’s wedding the next morning in London and missing this flight can be seen as just bad luck. But when she meets Oliver it seems her fortunate has changed.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was a quick, cute read.  I honestly don’t have too many thoughts about it.  I enjoyed Hadley’s character and I definitely felt for her and the situation with her father.  There where so many times I wanted her to yell at her Dad or storm away from him but I was happy with the end result between the two.

Oliver, the love interest who Hadley meets after missing her first plane, is a cute character and seems like an interesting person. I liked how he tried to keep Hadley calm on her plan ride. They seemed to have a real connection and not forced by the author. 

The ending is predictable and one you can expect from a cute, fun read like The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. But I still enjoyed the ending and am glad it happened how it did.  I am glad this is a stand-alone because I want to keep the happy ending in my mind. If you enjoy cute, fun, quick reads you will want to pick this up!
