RGG: Sweet romance. Just a few kisses. The romance may be what sells the novel, but it is also a nice problem novel about handling parents' divorce and remarriage. Reading Level: YA.

I think this is a short, sweet, boy meets girl love story.

Hadley for most of the book has a chip on her shoulder. She's travelling overseas on her own to visit her Dad, who is about to marry another woman Hadley has never met. She's not happy about the decision he made to leave. On her 24-hour journey to the wedding, she meets a young gentleman who makes her smile, helps her through her fears and makes her see this situation she is in a little differently.

What are the chances you will meet the love of your life at the airport?

I would recommend this book to teen aged girls. I am 24 and I think I am just too old to read this. ( )

The ending is predictable since the tittle of the book. I thought this book was going to be romantic, it is, but it focus more on Hadley and her trying to fix her relationship with her father, realizing that other people has bigger problems than hers. The romantic part of the book is secondary and too much perfect. There are cliches and things that are too obvious. The book is fast paced, everything happens in 1 day, that you don’t have time to realize whats happening or to at least fall in love with the characters.

Book description
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 18B. 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.
