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.
