This was an interesting book to read, a combination of mystery and psychological thriller. The author, Louise Millar, did a very good job of establishing all of the psychological problems of her lead character and the build up of the tension leading to the final scenes was done in an excellent manner. I was certainly wanting Kate Parker to manage to find some help in coping with the issues caused by all the trauma in her past. Kate had developed methods to keep her from coming to terms with the deaths of both her parents in a car accident and her husband from a home invasion and robbery. Unfortunately simply trying to ignore the underlying cause of her mental instability was not helping her to recover and was actually beginning to make her eleven year old son exhibit some anxiety symptoms of his own. Of much more interest to me were the characters of Saskia, Kate's sister-in-law, and the truly strange man who lived next door to Kate. The man Kate met, Jago Martin, was a well... Read more
In Accidents Happen by Louise Millar, Kate Parker is a woman under siege. After her parents were killed in a freak accident on her wedding night and her husband was brutally murdered five years later, Kate, understandably, is concerned about accidents happening. She just wants to keep herself and her 10 year old son safe. As she also battles depression, Kate obsessively has the statistics concerning the frequency and circumstances of various accidents happening running through her head. But not only is Kate suffering from her constant worrying, so is her son, Jack. It appears that her in-laws are concerned enough about her actions that they might soon try to take her son from her.

Then Kate meets Jago Martin, a mathematics professor who has written a book about the odds of everything. Kate is immediately drawn to the handsome statistician, who challenges her to stop thinking about the odds and just enjoy life. He begins to set up a series of challenges aimed at helping her...

Well, accidents do happen and sadly this book is one of them...
I thought at first I had a winner on my hands, then towards the end I was like, really?
I was ready to throw this one down towards the end, as it is just way, way, to implausible.
The story starts out with Kate, a woman who has literally the worst luck in the world. Everyone from her parents to her husband have died tragically and consequently Kate is extremely paranoid, waiting for her and her sons life to end at any moment.
Her paranoia drives her son crazy as well as her husbands parents who think maybe its time for grandma and grandpa to take over the raising of their grandson, this of course further drives Kate Into desperation.
There are some interesting characters in this book, a really creepy neighbor that raises all kinds of red flags, a sister in law I would like to pop upside the head and a new boyfriend who gets Kate out of her shell with exciting new activities that might or might not... Read more
