Weekly Reads: Look of Love

I was drawn to The Look of Love because of the summary and it's parallel to my life: born during a Christmas blizzard. She's also about my age, green eyed, but that's where the similarities end, I guess. I received an e-ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review about the book and to promote it to library customers as I see fit. I know Sarah Jio is pretty popular so I figured I should give one of her books a try!

I enjoyed the story and the overall premise of the book. Some of the stories got confusing at times (I struggle with the introduction of a lot of characters before I connect with them, it's difficult for me to keep them straight). It was fairly predictable, but that wasn't a bad thing IMO.

If you're looking for a light holiday or romantic read, with occasional crying spells, give this one a try.

My rating: 3.5 stars

Summary from goodreads:

Born during a Christmas blizzard, Jane Williams receives a rare gift: the ability to see true love. Jane has emerged from an ailing childhood a lonely, hopeless romantic when, on her twenty-ninth birthday, a mysterious greeting card arrives, specifying that 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 is utterly enchanting.
