Belinda’s Book Nook Review: The Look of Love by Sarah Jio



Title: The Look of Love
Author: Sarah Jio
Copyright: November 25, 2014
Genre: fiction
Format: audiobook

Synopsis (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.

My Thoughts:

This was perfect book to listen to while I worked in my craftroom. It didn’t require too much thinking. Just sitting back and listening to a cute story. I think the audio experience was fun. Although this is a light read, I do think it did have some value in that it talked about the different types of love. I didn’t think of all the types she talks about in the book but I enjoyed how she demonstrated them within the story with different characters. There was a lot going on but easy to follow. I have loved Sarah Jio’s books for many reasons but I love that she incorporates flowers in them all. The main character in this story inherited a flowershop. I kept thinking of “The Language of Flowers” when they mentioned an arrangement in the story.

The story moved at a decent pace and I liked the main character as well as her supporting characters. This isn’t my favorite of her books but enjoyable especially in audio format.

I would give this book 3 butterflies.
