Grade B-

Chance Encounters is a feel-good romance by one of my favorite contemporary authors, Jill Shalvis. The story doesn't break any new ground, but likeable characters, good dialogue and a sweet romance make this an enjoyable way to spend a few hours.

2.5 stars. Didn't know this book was part of a series and I don't know if reading the other 2 would make a difference on my rating. There was nothing special about this book. It's not a horrible book but there was nothing to stimulate my mind as I read

Hahaha. The cover and the fact that it was written ~2001 says it all. Oh the cover, hahah. My ebook has something slightly less "swimming pool advertisement"-esque.

A hit by hit or miss for me author Shalvis. It's the book that always makes me try something by her again. I just love everything about it. Ally is a bit of a grey mouse and push-over. She takes care of all the people in her life, and her family leans heavily on her. Then her boyfriend ends up in jail after stealing old books, she looses her job at the library because her boyfriends stole from them, and she has to move out her appartement. So Ally decides that enough is enough, and heads out to ...more

Lucy arranged for her niece (or whatever) Ally to replace her as General Manager of Sierra Peak while she stays in the hospital for a hip injury. She asked Chance, her Mountain Manager to take care of Ally (who's out of shape) and show her the fun she was lacking in her librarian life. (A life that she doesn't have anymore thanks to a classic edition stealing boyfriend) At the resort, we meet the staff Tim, Jo and Brian (The juvenile delinquent who's accused of setting fire on the land.) (Come t ...more

After a terrible ex-boyfriend causes Ally to lose her beloved library job, she is recruited by her hospital bound Aunt to run the family winter resort in Wyoming. The aunt has an ulterior motive and really wants to match-make Ally with Chance, the man who now works directly under her. Their attraction is immediate, but neither think the other is willing to make a true relationship work.

An early work by Shalvis (2001), it is a little light on the character building that oozes out of her more rece

Oldie 2001 but a goodie!

Jill, love your books, this one was really a great short read. Did you or would you consider doing a follow up on Brian the 14 yr old teenager?

Loved Chance & Ally and their story.

Recommend for a day at the beach with a drink in hand.
