In this genre-bending audiobook from best-selling Israeli author Yoav Blum, there is no such thing as chance and every action is carefully executed by highly trained agents. Listeners will never look at coincidences the same way again.
What if the drink you just spilled, the train you just missed, or the lottery ticket you just found was not just a random occurrence? What if it's all part of a bigger plan? What if there's no such thing as a chance encounter? What if there are people we don't know determining our destiny? And what if they are even planning the fate of the world?
Enter the Coincidence Makers - Guy, Emily, and Eric - three seemingly ordinary people who work for a secret organization devoted to creating and carrying out coincidences. What the rest of the world sees as random occurrences, are, in fact, carefully orchestrated events designed to spark significant changes in the lives of their targets - scientists on the brink of breakthroughs, struggling artists starved for inspiration, loves to be, or just plain people like you and me....
When an assignment of the highest level is slipped under Guy's door one night, he knows it will be the most difficult and dangerous coincidence he's ever had to fulfill. But not even a coincidence maker can see how this assignment is about to change all their lives and teach them the true nature of fate, free will, and the real meaning of love.
Part thriller, part mystery, part love story - Kirkus calls The Coincidence Makers "a smart, unpredictable, and heartfelt adventure story."

Deeper than I thought it would be

This started off fairly light and fluffy, which was enjoyable, but it got a lot deeper with more twists than I expected, which I liked even better.

What would have made it better still: This is written by and Israeli author, I think, yet all the names are American. The city is unnamed. I would have preferred if it had been more grounded in place--an actual city in Israel with people with names appropriate to the country.

Great premise, disappointing execution

I really wanted to enjoy this book. I thought the premise was great. However, I kept feeling like the author was so self-congratulatory about the clever concept it kept interrupting the suspended disbelief. Saw the ending coming and then had to struggle through hours of more hinting at the clever plot twist on the horizon.
