Quirks of timing feature in this romantic novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves. Set over a twenty-four-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver find that true love can be unexpected.
Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. Having just 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?
In a fast-paced and entertaining novel with a superlatively romantic premise, 17-year-old Hadley misses her flight to London, where her father is marrying the woman he left their family for, but she unexpectedly may have found true love in the process. When Hadley meets charming Oliver at the gate, they instantly connect and bond during her new flight. They even share a kiss in the customs line, but Hadley loses sight of him afterward. Now, she has to survive being a bridesmaid, contend with her feelings about her father's new life, and figure out how to find Oliver before she returns to the U.S. the next day. Hadley is rushing through most of this book, and readers will gladly race alongside her. But they'll also savor cinematic moments, like a touching heart-to-heart conversation between Hadley and her father on the dance floor. Smith (You Are Here) balances Hadley's dual relationship dramas well, and while the story wraps up neatly, readers will be as caught up as Hadley is by the physical and emotional distances she traverses.

A Book Worth Reading
This book was absolutely amazing! I fell in love with Hadley and Oliver's love! Throughout the book, I caught myself imagining myself as Hadley, and my crush as Oliver! It was a beautiful story, and is going to be recommended to all of my friends!
Brought tears to my eyes.
I have only read one other book of Jennifer E. Smith, 'This is what Happy looks like', and I loved that one and I loved this one, too. I was a little sad that when I looked down to see the number of pages I still had left was just a few. Hadley's and Oliver's connection was supper cute. I totally recommend this book for anyone looking for a cute young love story.
