About Chance: A Novel
They took her lover. Getting him back could be the last thing she ever does… High-powered Atlanta attorney Sydney Jones never backs down from a case. So when her bodyguard and boyfriend is accused of murder, she’s determined to fight for him in court.
Instead, the charges are suddenly dismissed, and he vanishes without a trace… Suspecting CIA involvement, Sydney takes on a lawsuit with Chinese Black Society ties and finds a startling connection to her missing man. But as she digs deeper, she discovers that someone may kill to keep the secret.
Will this dangerous cat-and-mouse game reveal the truth or put a bullet in Sydney’s head?
Thoughts on Chance: A Novel
Chance is an exciting crime thriller that follows Sydney Jones in her life as an attorney when her boyfriend and bodyguard is accused of murder. Instead of going to trial, he is sent to work for the CIA and just disappears.
The book intertwines their two stories, as they go about separate lives. Sydney is working as an attorney, and her boyfriend is working for the CIA, and they can’t communicate with each other.
This book has a lot of plot twists that I didn’t see coming. I’m not going to spoil it for you, but it is definitely worth a read. It is really easy to follow and makes for a quick read.
Somehow when it comes to a series, I always get a hold of the second one and am hooked. Then I have to go back and read the first one. Have you ever had that happen, or is it just me? Because this is not the first time I’ve started a series with the second book.
This was the case here, and I am looking forward to reading Primed For Revenge. I am a huge fan of book series, but I appreciate when each book is good enough to stand alone at the same time. This could also become an excellent movie. I can easily see the potential there.
Final Thoughts on Chance: A Novel
There were several plot twists that I honestly did not see coming. This makes for a thrilling read that I really wanted to continue and learn more and find out what happens next. I am a sucker for a great page-turner that has me wanting to know more.
There were times this book felt like being on a roller coaster ride, but in a great way. If you are looking for a great book that is easy to read and follow, yet exciting, this is the book for you!
I hope you enjoy Chance: A Novel as much as I did! It is one I definitely recommend.
