Product Description:

One word. One day. One thing.

When Josephine Reinhart graduates college two years early, she gets a head start on fulfilling her dream of traveling to Europe. Her dream is a whirlwind and proves to be all too brief when a week later she’s on her way to the airport with a ticket back home. “So, now what?” is the question.

Just when she thought it was back to boring life-as-usual, fate takes an unexpected turn. Her flight home from Paris gets canceled and she bumps (quite literally) into an eccentric, orange-haired boy at the airport. And that’s just the beginning of a new adventure for Josephine.

Meeting Sam is one thing... spending an entire day with him in the most romantic city in the world is another thing entirely. Together they capture bits and pieces of themselves through their short journey; learning that passion is something worth fighting for, and that one needs only to get lost in order to get found. Little do they know what’s in store for them.

Words, Fate & Accidents is the story of two strangers who find themselves in each other’s eyes—and who may just find the very thing everyone is searching for in the City of Light.

a lighthearted book that makes you giddy inside

What a cute and heartwarming story! Bought this book months ago, and it was only recently that I finished reading it. Josephine is a character that reminded me of some of my old high school friends. The relationships the main character has created with other people and herself was fun to unravel. Now older and a little bit wiser, Words, Fates & Attraction, provided me a trip down memory lane to my sweet and innocent younger days.
