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.

Interesting treatise of Coincidence and Love
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No, while interesting, it was not very entertaining. I did not care much about the characters and the story line was not engaging. The story was chopped up between the past, present, and coincidence textbook discussion and sometimes while listening I got lost in who was talking and about whom.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Make the story feel less like a lecture.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
