From the back:
Since Azalea Lewis was abandoned as a child at a fairground in Devon, her life has been afflicted by unlucky coincidences. Overwhelmed by the patterns in her past and convinced she cannot escape her destiny, Azalea decides to consult an authority.
When she enters the office of Dr Thomas Post, she finds the man she collided with on a London escalator the week before. It must be fate.
But Thomas is not so easily convinced. His professional interest ignited, he sets out to prove Azalea wrong. And as he unravels the mysteries of her past, he finds that his certainties about love, life and statistics are shaken up in ways he could never have imagined...

I loved all the stories within the greater story. But the big premise, is everything that happened in Azalea's life coincidence or is there something else at work, it's never really resolved and it let to an unexpected ending. Not unexpected like: 'wow, did THAT just happen?!'. but more like 'uhm... okay, where are the rest of the pages? Is this a misprint or something?' It was very suddenly, which felt not resolved at all. Something more should have happened. But all in all, interesting novel.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Not sure what to expect when I started this, but I enjoyed it a lot. The author has a nice writing style which reads very easily. Somehow I hadn't expected that a big part would be set in Uganda, but that made it even more interesting.

On its way to a mystery BCer :)
