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.

A Review: (By Beckey)

I received the book for an honest review… The conception of the story from reading the blurb, sounded like it would be a potentially be a good one to read but the execution wasn’t … Overall an ok but it wasn’t something I was “Wowed” about. Head hopping jumping from character to character  on each page made it seem like I was getting a glimpse (a snippet) of a full story and personally short change of something that had strong possibilities of being better but never a completed story.

I can honestly say this was an ok story
