Sweet, short, simple, cliche, cute...what else is there to expect?


It was a quick and simple read. I needed something easy and simple - kind of like when you sometimes just want to sit down with a nice romantic drama or comedy, you know? I had saw my favourite local bookshop recommending this book and it sounded cute enough.

The book is about seventeen-year old Hadley who has just missed her flight to London, and is late to her father's second wedding. She remains stuck at the JFK airport and meets a British boy named Oliver, who is sitting in her row. Hadley does not look forward to the wedding and meeting her soon-to-be-stepmother. She and Oliver get to know each other during the long flight but when they reach London, they lose each others. The question is of course - will they meet again?

Even though the title and the summary suggest a romantic story, the focus is more on family drama. Of course, there is romance too though! The whole book is set in a period between twenty-four hours.

I wish I could say more about the book but to be honest, there isn't much to say. If you expect a lot of twists and turns, drama and depth, then no. This is a cute, fluffy and sweet story. It's simple, short and cliched. It's perfect if you need something quick that will make you feel good without overthinking it.
