DESCRIPTION FROM GOODREADS:
Born during a Christmas blizzard, Jane Williams receives a rare gift: the ability to literally see true love. Jane has emerged from an ailing childhood a lonely, hopeless romantic when, on her twenty-fifth birthday, she receives a card from the midwife who delivered her. Jane must identify the six types of love before the full moon following her thirtieth birthday, or face grave consequences. When Jane falls for a science writer who doesn’t believe in love, she fears that her fate is sealed. Inspired by the classic song, The Look of Love will utterly enchant Sarah Jio’s rapidly growing fanbase.
I am a HUGE Sarah Jio fan. I have read all her books and follow her on facebook and instagram. I might even be called a stalker. Seriously - she never disappoints me.
This novel was a little different from her others. All of her previous books work on a dual storyline. This novel is set entirely in modern day with the exception of the Preface. There are mentions of the past and info given by others, but no dual storyline. With that being said, it is still everything that a Jio fan could ask for. Love, history, and mystery are still there for your enjoyment.
I read a lot of reviews that compare the plot to Love Actually. In fact, it is a good compassion. The story is mainly about Jane and her gift, but there are multiple love stories that are centered around her. Multiple loves stories and types of love.
I think that the basis of the book is great. Jane having a magical gift that she was given at birth. The story plays out well and their is a true ending to each of the couples love stories. And - - it was one of those books that I picked up and finished in one setting. I started reading when I got in bed and the next thing I knew, it was 3 am and I was done.
If you are looking for a fast and easy read, be sure to pick it up.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. All thoughts and opinions are mine.
