I seldom recommend novels to neighbors and friends.

Even if I’ve read something worthy of a recommendation, tastes in reading material tend to be somewhat personal.

That said, I saw 3 tennis players at the clubhouse last week.  Ellie F. was in the middle.

“Ellie, do you enjoy reading murder mysteries?”

“Not really.”

“I’m reading one about a murder at the U.S. Open.  It’s not too gruesome.”

Ellie perked up at the description. “What’s the title?”

“Drop Shot by Harlan Coben.”

“That’s amazing.  My brother used to play tennis professionally.  He’s mentioned in that book.  I’ve been meaning to read it.”

“What’s his name?”

“Tim Mayotte.”

I agreed to toss the book her way on completion.

I finished the book yesterday.  Tim is mentioned on page 26.

Aah . . . that’s synchronicity!
