January Monthly Commenter Contest!

I fell in love with the title of Jennifer E. Smith's latest book, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, back in May at BEA. Out of all of the titles I heard that crazy week, that one stood out the most. And I fell in love with the story when I started it yesterday and finished it within a matter of hours. This is a real, emotional, romantic book, and I am thrilled to be giving away a copy this month!

Read on to learn more about the book!
"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. 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."
Happy reading in this New Year!

Normally I'm very much against the insta-love type of books because I've rarely met a writer who can handle that type of attraction in a realistic manner, but I've been hearing lots of good things about this one, so I'm willing to give it a try. Here's hoping!


Smiles!
