Accidents Happen by Louise Millar

She knows someone has been in her house, touching her things, eating her food.  Her in-laws think she's losing her mind from grief; they threaten to take her child away.  She needs to get over her phobia now!

Atria/Emily Bestler Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this ebook for review (thank you).  It will be published on the 25th of June, so check with your local bookstore for a copy then.

Kate has had a lot of sadness in her life.  First her parents died on her wedding day, then her husband is murdered.  She's waiting for the next blow and getting more and more paranoid by the day.  The bad part is that it is affecting her child.  She won't let him do anything that isn't controlled.  She's even rigged up a metal cage in their bedroom area so no one can break in at night.

When her mother-in-law threatens to take her son away from her, she knows she must get hold of herself and try to fight the phobia away.  She meets a man named Jago who is determined to help her conquer her fear.  She's developing an interest in him romantically, so she enjoys being "trained" by him to meet her fears.

This story is a real mind-bender.   It's creepy, the murder's reasons are steeped in insanity, and it's also believable.  Something like this could happen.  It kept me on the edge of my seat.  I had to finish this story in one night or I wouldn't be able to sleep.  Of course, then I still couldn't go right to sleep.  That's what a good book will do to you.

Why don't you get a copy and see if you think Kate is crazy?  

Happy reading.
