A Matter of Chance (by Julie Mahoney) … stilted though emotional story

While the premise of the story was good, the actual telling was not that appealing. I cannot begin to imagine having my child abducted and Maddy’s distress is understanding. Her unwillingness to give up as year-after-year there is no resolution is admirable. But…

This book felt too stilted. The words did not flow smoothly. I literally felt like I was riding in a car on a bumpy road, being jerked from side to side as I tried to take in the story. I do think the author has great potential and would read another book by her to see if the writing style is more appealing.

Thank you to NetGalley and She Writes Press for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
