Thirty-five years old and single, Kendra Emerson believes any hope for romance is as far away as the family she's driven to visit. However, her plans for a peaceful, uneventful holiday change abruptly when she ends up stranded in a small Nevada town. While window-shopping, she hears a sudden crash of glass, and two armed robbers take Kendra and a nearby child hostage.
Meanwhile, Chase Kirkham, a recluse by choice, runs a secluded sheep ranch fifteen miles from his nearest neighbor. Running low on supplies, Chase fires up his old truck to make the long trip into town. On a lonely stretch of road, and with winter storm approaching, he sees two desperate figures stumbling across a frozen field. This encounter draws Chase into the adventure of his lifetime.
In Chance Encounter, Jennie Hansen delivers another heart-stopping romantic thriller complete with chilling abduction, a family's answered prayer, and two wounded hearts that are able to heal each other. [publisher's blurb]
