Eight Perfect Hours by Lia Louis

Eight Perfect Hours. A novel by Lia Louis.

In this romantic and heartwarming novel, two strangers meet in chance circumstances during a blizzard and spend one perfect evening together, thinking they’ll never see each other again. But fate seems to have different plans. From the acclaimed author of the “swoon-worthy… rom-com” (The Washington Post) Dear Emmie Blue.

On a snowy evening in March, thirty-something Noelle Butterby is on her way back from an event at her old college when disaster strikes. With a blizzard closing off roads, she finds herself stranded, alone in her car, without food, drink, or a working charger for her phone.

All seems lost until Sam Attwood, a handsome American stranger also trapped in a nearby car, knocks on her window and offers assistance. What follows is eight perfect hours together, until morning arrives and the roads finally clear. The two strangers part, positive they’ll never see each other again but fate, it seems, has a different plan. As the two keep serendipitously bumping into one another, they begin to realize that perhaps there truly is no such thing as coincidence.

With plenty of charming twists and turns and Lia Louis’s “bold, standout voice” (Gillian McAllister, author of The Good Sister), Eight Perfect Hours is a gorgeously crafted novel that will make you believe in the power of fate.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I really enjoyed this sweet, serendipitous, and sexy story, which all started with a snowstorm.

Noelle and Sam spend a night together after their journeys are disrupted by snow. And here starts a connection which we see slowly unfold and turn into a most unexpected source. Whilst the chances that they should meet are really small, I subscribe to the idea that life is stranger than fiction, and this book skirts along the limits in a really clever way.

It is impossible not to want the two of them to find a way to be together, even if they live completely different lives.

A lovely read, thank you, Lia Louis!
