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. – From Goodreads
I absolutely love how adorable this book is. Everything moves a little too fast though sometimes it is just how it is, right? 24 hours might seem like a long time and that’s just what happens in this book. The writing is vivid, full of feeling and there are many sort of flashbacks to drive the point and emotions of the characters.
At first i thought, “Wow 24 hours seems a little too fast to fall in love with someone” but even that would seem like a long time if you put aside all the pretenses and actually open up to someone. Having the story set at the airport is very cute too, considering the many people who come in and out of airports daily. I like how both of the main characters hit it off easily, somewhat proving the fact that when you see someone you’ll immediately know how your relationship would be like. No pretentious facades, just wholehearted and occasionally funny conversation through and through.
Who knows who you’ll meet the next time you board a flight? A future good friend or maybe a love story might just start sprouting there 🙂
