Chances Are

I have liked the Richard Russo novels I have read, particularly Empire Falls. Chances Are was a good and quick read about three college friends who get together in Martha’s Vineyard to reconnect before one of the friends sells the Vineyard family vacation home. There is a mystery imbedded in the story: a fourth friend went missing after a post-college Vineyard trip when the group was in their 30-s. The story moved along for me more because of the mystery than anything else. I could see others believing that the tale was too quiet overall. I enjoyed this read, but didn’t LOVE it.
