"Love in Store" is a song by British-American rock group Fleetwood Mac. The song is the opening track on the 1982 album Mirage, the fourth album by the band with Lindsey Buckingham acting as main producer with Richard Dashut and Ken Caillat. "Love in Store" was written by Christine McVie and Jim Recor and it became the album's third single in the US. Released in November 1982, it went on to peak at No. 22 for three weeks as the follow-up to Top 20 hits "Hold Me" (No. 4) and " Gypsy" (No. 12). It also peaked at number 11 on the Adult Contemporary chart. The song features lead vocals by Christine McVie with prominent vocal harmonies by Stevie Nicks and background vocals by Lindsey Buckingham. [2]

In the UK, another track from Mirage, " Oh Diane", was released as the third single instead and was a top ten hit. "Love In Store" was not released as a single in the UK, although it was released in some European territories.

An alternative mix of the song was released in 1992 on the CD box set 25 Years – The Chain. The song is included on the 2002 US version, and 2009 UK re-issue of the album The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac.

Critical reception

Billboard said that "Love in Store" "has the same appeal as the string of singles that first gave the group ownership of the pop charts in 1975–1976." [3]
