Can you say Serendipity Movie? That’s what I thought when I read this, it went along just like the movie, man meets strange woman, falls in love, gets number, loses number and so on. Well it was not hard to follow and you knew just what was coming next.
Every time Peter Russell boarded a plane, he just knew one time he would meet this beautiful woman, fall in love over the plane food, and live happily ever after. What he didn’t realize that this time it was going to come true. But when Holly gives him her number to call during the week he would be in LA he gets to the hotel room feet barley touching the ground as he is floating on a cloud, and BAM! He can’t find the piece of paper Holly wrote her number on! Sound familiar? Yeah I thought so too. It was a cutesy romance story written by a man (these are usually written by women) and it showed. If you like these sort of know what’s going to happen, feel good book, then I say knock yourself out! I almost did trying to finish it! Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
