Songs for this read:
Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?I am such a sucker for daddy-daughter bonding stories. Call me a daddy's girl but this book just ruined me. I cried about every other chapter once Hadley got to London, like a little girl. And not just about how touching Hadley and her dads story was but also for how sad Oliver's was.
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 story was just as endearing as it was humorous at times. I loved the witty repartee between Hadley and Oliver and the heartwarming family anecdotes. This book was not what I was expecting but that just added to what a pleasurable and entertaining read it was. I'm sure I'll be revisiting this one again soon.
