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.
Well, actually 2.85 stars.
At first, I liked it.
Then I didn't.
Then I did again.
It's a romance/chick lit book, which I don't read a lot of anymore, but it was a fun premise -- Jane, the main character, can see love in couples. Some who look so happy, really aren't and vica-versa.
All that is fine and it made a good story line... the thing that bothered me (and there might be a spoiler in here) ... is the infidelity in a couple of the character's so called 'love' stories.
I know that's just a personal thing.
I just don't feel that is 'love'... I think working on a marriage and lasting for 50+ years is love.
But that's just me.
And I'm not judging, it's just that Jio's story-lines-- the ones that included infidelity, didn't even make sense to me.
Of course (spoiler again) it all turned out as it should in the end!
Which is how a romance should, right?
