EXCLUSIVE: UK Cover Reveal - The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith!

Thanks to my lovely friends over at Headline publishing, today I am exclusively revealing the UK cover for Jennifer E. Smith's The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight! The book is published here early next year, and I can tell you it's brilliant. I read an early copy a few months ago and I couldn't put it down - it's that good!

Here's the summary from Amazon:

Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything? Imagine if she hadn't fogotten the book. Or if there hadn't been traffic on the expressway. Or if she hadn't fumbled the coins for the toll. What if she'd run just that little bit faster and caught the flight she was supposed to be on. Would it have been something else - the weather over the atlantic or a fault with the plane? Hadley isn't sure if she believes in destiny or fate but, on what is potentially the worst day of each of their lives, it's the quirks of timing and chance events that mean Hadley meets Oliver... 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.


And here's the UK cover...

*drumroll*




So, what do you think? Do you love it as much as I do? Let me know in the comments!

This sounds AMAZING! And I like the cover! It's very different to the US one.

Cliona said...

This books sounds amazing! But it seems more serious than the cover suggests. I might be wrong though, since I've never read it! The cover is great too.

I absolutely love this cover. It doesn't pigeon hole it but really draws attention to the brilliant title. This is going to be a winner.

Im not loving it actually :(

I absolutely LOVE the US cover - and I just don't like this. How old are the characters? Because the two on this cover look middle-aged. Something about the colours doesn't work for me either. If I saw this in the store I wouldn't pick it up. I'd be put off. But I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that as an illustrator I absolutely detest this style of drawing - and everyone seems to be doing it :)

I am still, however, totally excited about the book! (I'l just be tracking down an import of the US cover!) :D

Wow, this one sounds very good - I'm going to add to my wish list now :D

And the cover is gorgeous :D

Well I like it. My only thought is that the images of Hadley and Oliver look too mature, too adult. I seems more chick lit than YA. Having read the book, I know that isn't at all the story so ...hmmm...
I love the back ground though.
