Click here to read reviewer Swapna Krishna's take on Unpredictable.

Sophie Kintock will stop at nothing to win back her ex-boyfriend, Doug. Her initial method is proving to him that he can't live without her by secretly moving his car and stealing his socks, but things soon escalate when he hooks up with the model-like Melanie. Sophie gets the idea to pose as a psychic to give Melanie a fake reading and enlists the help of Dr. Nick McKenna, a skeptic statistician who has researched the methods that psychics use.

Sophie finds herself unexpectedly successful at being a psychic and all her dreams seem to be coming true. But she has to discover whether what she thinks she wants is what is actually best for her, and whether the man of her dreams might not really love her for herself.

The writing style of Unpredictable is wonderful with excellent pacing, fantastic throw-away comments, and engaging characters. The book rarely descends into silly slapstick humor but instead sees the amusing side of everyday life and people's own behavior. Sophie's down-to-earth nature, at least most of the time, and her willingness to give things a go make her an engaging heroine. This book was a delight to read, and I look forward to the next offering from author Eileen Cook.
