Jane Williams runs a flower shop, and in her day-to-day dealings she sees all sorts of customers making purchases for different reasons… celebrations, apologies, condolences, and yes – for love. On her 29th birthday Jane learns that she has a special gift of being able to see love between two people, yet oddly she can not see it for herself. She has been tasked with one year to find and record the six types of love, if she fails she will never find her own true love.
At first Jane finds this information insane, until she starts to feel her vision cloud when she is in the presence of two people who are in love. Of course the opposite is true as well and Jane can see when married friends or relationships are not about love at all.
The Look Of Love is a unique twist of a love story. I liked Jane and I enjoyed the characters that surround her in this read. I enjoyed each relationship that was introduced and seeing through Jane’s eyes if it was really love or something else – for better or for worse.
I listened to this on audio, honestly drawn into the fact that Cassandra Campbell was one of the narrators, but also Julia Whelan (she narrated Delicious which I LOVED!) as a second narrator. Both were fantastic for this book.
The Look Of Love is my first dabble into Sarah Jio’s work but it will not be my last. I hear this supernatural twist included int his book is a different take for her and I am curious about her other books.
Fun Fact: The Look Of Love is based off the popular song, and the song is playing in a scene within the book.

Interesting idea about love.
It was an interesting read 🙂
That does sound like a new twist for Jio. I’ll have to check this out.
Its funny I looked at her other books and recognize covers but do not believe I have ever read her before.
I have this one on Sparky…and have loved all of her other books. This one does seem very different. Glad you enjoyed it.
I loved it on audio, it was a fun listen 🙂
I have read all her other books and loved them. However I am on the fence about this one, since I very seldom read books with supernatural twists. But just because Sarah wrote it, I’m sure it is a page turner!
Its not heavy supernatural… more like she has a “gift” 😀
I remember reading Violets of March on a train to NYC… the trip flew by! If Cassandra Campbell is one of the narrators, I might go the audio route for The Look of Love.
I was excited by the choice of narrators! Yes, I have chosen audio before by the narrator. 😛
I hadn’t realized that Cassandra Campbell was one of the narrators. I love her! I’d been trying to decide if I wanted to read this or listen but I think I may go the audio route. This sounds like a fun read/listen and since I really enjoyed Goodnight June I’ll have to get to this one soon. Thanks for sharing!
I LIke Cassandra Campbell as well! 😀 It was a good listen, had a playful nature to it.
I’ve only read one of her books (enjoyed it). Because of the narrators I think I’d like to listen to this one!
I htink this one would be good in book or audio, but yes, it was very good audio 😀
I just finished this one, and I was disappointed. It was just ok for me. I have loved many of her books.
I have nothing to compare it to of her but I thought it was a decent read 😉
I just added this book to my to-read list. Looks interesting!
Now I want to listen to the audio too 🙂
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this book Sheila. I have it and I’m looking forward to reading it.
