I just finished reading Sarah Jio’s new book The Look of Love. I am a big fan of Sarah Jio’s books and was thrilled when I got a chance to get an advanced copy of the book from Penguin’s First Reads Program. This story is about Jane Williams who was born on Christmas Day twenty-nine years ago. Jane lives in Seattle, WA, and runs a flower shop in the Pike Place Market. Just before her birthday she receives a mysterious card telling her that she has a special gift. Jane finds out that she received a “gift” on the day she was born. She has the ability to “see” love. This explains the vision troubles she has been experiencing ever since she was a little girl. To keep her gift, Jane must identify six types of love before her thirtieth birthday and write them in a journal that has passed down from each person who has had the gift starting with Elodie in 1893. If she does not identify the six types of love, she will lose the gift and never find true love. Jane then embarks on a year of finding out about the different types of love, about herself, and falling in love. I enjoyed this book and look forward to Sarah Jio’s next novel.
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful weekend! Happy Reading!
