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.
This was the first book on my list on my attempt on the BookTube-A-Thon. I quite liked it. I had tried to read it before, but that was right after I read Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, and expected more. But when I read/listened to it this time I liked it.
The story takes place over 24 hour time period. Hadley and Oliver meet in an airport and sit together during their flight from USA to UK. Both of them have big problems on their mind.
Hadley is dreading her father’s second marriage. She thinks that he has forgotten about her, because of his marriage and living in UK, and she also feels let down by her father.
Oliver is a mysterious and sad English boy. He doesn’t give up much about his trip to UK, but he is also dreading it.
During the flight they bond. And after that the romance comes.
The book is fast paced and cute. A good book to help to make your day better.
