Accidents Happen by Louise Millar
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Talk about a Series of Unfortunate Events! Kate's life seems to be filled with tragedy (parents die on her wedding day, husband killed in a break-in), leading to a very understandable need for security and comfort. For some reason, statistics are what grab her - knowing what the dangers are and what the safest options are make her feel safer. Whatever. Then one day she meets a man who says he can help her get over this... his methods are more than a little bizarre.
At times this reminded me of Into the Darkest Corner, which in many ways is the stronger book. The ending to this felt rushed, and a little forced (and coincidental). Still, there's a definite creepy core for readers to get stuck on, which is never a bad thing.
