“I think about how foggy love has been for me, so unclear. And how, even though I deal in a business of love and help people express theirs through flowers, I know nothing of it myself. Nothing at all.” 

In THE LOOK OF LOVE (Plume original; November 25, 2014), Jane Williams is born during a blizzard on Christmas Day when she receives a rare and timeless gift; the ability to detect true love. On her twenty-ninth birthday she receives a mysterious greeting card from a woman informing her that she possesses an extraordinary gift—“The ability to see love in all of its forms in a way that others cannot.”

In an Authorlink AUDIO interview, New York Times bestselling author Sarah Jio talks about what inspired her to write the novel, what she , herself, believes about love, and what she thinks is the necessary ingredient for a writer to achieve success in today’s publishing world.   

 In The Look of Love, Jane is told by a mysterious woman that she must identify the six types of love before her thirtieth birthday or face grave consequences in her own love life.

Jane begins to realize that sparks fly amongst friends and family, even between those who are not together. She can tell how devoted two people are after years of marriage, or whom her brother is secretly pining over. Will Jane become matchmaker or let true love take its own course?

When Jane meets pragmatic science writer Cameron Collins who believes love is nothing but a chemical reaction, a sensation that slowly fades, she suddenly feels that her fate is sealed. As it nears her thirtieth birthday, Jane continues to see love in many forms, but begins to wonder if her destiny is to be a hopeless romantic.

 Inspired by the classic song of the same name, THE LOOK OF LOVE, Sarah Jio shows how complicated love can be as each character’s story unfolds. Should one follow their heart even if it means hurting others? Sentimental and delightful, this novel will captivate Jio fans and anyone with a taste for romance.
