Accidents Happen: A Novel by Louise Millar

Kate Parker has weathered unimaginable horrors—her parents died in a traffic accident on her wedding night, and her husband, Hugo, was murdered in a tragic break-in gone wrong. All she has left is her young son, Jack, and determined to make a better future for him, she attempts to pull her life back together. But are she and her son safe?

First off, I must say that this book was a really wonderful story to read. From the very first sentence to the last one I really enjoyed the story. I saw a lot of other author’s mention that this book was a wonderful “psychological thriller”, but I thought the story was more of a suspense read than a thriller. 

I felt like I was in the main character’s (Kate Parker) shoes and like I was going through everything she was. I felt like I had to protect my child and that I had to run from those who were after me. When I would get done with a chapter and put the book down for a little bit; I felt like it would take me between one to two hours to get back to feeling like myself. 

I really like the way Louise Millar writes her stories; I love how she is able to draw the reader into the story from the first sentence and she is able to keep the reader’s attention throughout the entire story. I think this author will put out more wonderful stories in the future. This book would be a really great read for anyone especially those who love suspenseful books. I give this book and author an “A+.”

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
