1. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

Reluctantly going to London to attend her father's second wedding, Hadley misses her original flight and gets stuck in JFK Airport, where she randomly meets Oliver. As they fly over the Atlantic, the two start exchanging stories about each other’s lives, only to get separated at immigration upon arrival at the Heathrow Airport. Is this fateful encounter going to end just like that?

Perfect for the whimsical and hopeless romantic, the book will make you look forward to your next flight. More than the chance encounter at the airport, the story is about Hadley, how she mends her broken relationship with her father, and how she struggles to open herself to new possibilities. It will also take you around London where Hadley tries to find Oliver. Check out the book to see if they end up meeting again or not.
