Accidents Happen

Accidents Happen - Louise Millar I liked her first book and this one is well written but I can't help but feel this feeds the frenzy of all OCD afflicted moms out there and the primal fears of parents as well.

Like her previous debut novel this one is about a mom and a child and the madness is spun from there. One is left breathless by the speed of the plot but one also feels manipulated emotionally by the end of the book and the initial plots of certain accidents happening statistically seems to feel tagged on.

I would recommend it but people need to know this is fiction and not buy into the mass-hysteria.
