Additional Information

"A Chance Encounter is the digital reissue of a previously published and long out-of-print novel by New York Times Bestselling author Mary Balogh.

Elizabeth Rossiter is forever finished with love – after a disastrous episode that left her with a broken heart and a reputation that would be ruined should her scandalous secret be revealed. She sought safety by fleeing her proper station in society to take a position as companion to the daughter of a wealthy family, far from London, where Elizabeth's beauty and wit had once shone so brightly.

But now her hope of a safe haven is shattered. To her horror, the one man in the world she hoped never to see again has appeared in this rural retreat.

Robert Denning, the handsome, faithless Marquis of Hetherington, made a mockery of her dreams once before – and now he is working his old magic and mischief in her life once more."

The beginning was better than the torturous last half, where Balogh dragged out the misunderstandings with character behavior that was illogical and unacceptable. So weak was the motive and circumstance that she had to keep explaining how the divide between these to could have happened. The more she over-explained, the less we bought the convoluted explanation. There is no way the wailing, grieving heroine would have believed her father about the letters. No. No. No! The result of this was that all of them looked stupid. And this was only one of a slew of weak actions that ruined the character. The scenes where they find out what machinations drove them apart 6 years earlier were half written and ended abruptly to merely prolong the story. Very irritating. Any normal person would have talked about what they had just discovered, not walked away. One of the most frustration books I have read in a long time. I know this is an older book and she has so many great books in recent... Read more
I have every other book written by Mary Balogh. If this was the 1st that I had read, it would have been my last. The book seemed to be more of a short story that had to be filled in to make it a book. It also does not seem to have neen written by the named author since the writing style was so different. The woman was made to appear to be insipid, indecisive and weak. The man, childish and petulant. Almost like 2 high school kids playing at their idea of romance.
In a nutshell, this book was a disappointment.
I've been reading Balogh's older books as they become available on Kindle. This story started out great. Then a surprise "I never saw that coming" part of the storyline really got me going. But... from then on - one humongous misunderstanding which was not resolved until the very end of the book. Frustration abounds within the pages of this book for the reader who does not enjoy angst upon angst. Ugh! I should have read some reviews before I grabbed this one.

Two and one half stars. No sweet savoring in this book except for one or two pages.
