His teenage sister Ellen has an online friend whom she has never met. Ellen guards a terrible secret.
For eight years their duplicitous father has languished in prison, claiming he is innocent of murder. The evidence against him is overwhelming, so why does Mark persist with an appeal?
Keen to prove her potential as an investigator, Julianna forces Mark to confront his mistakes. The consequences will put all their lives in danger.
Rae Shaw’s A Chance Encounter hits the ground running from the beginning, and doesn’t really slow down. I had trouble setting it down. In fact, I read most of this book in one sitting.
The writing style is tight, and easy to read. I really enjoyed the style because the words flowed quickly.
There are lots of twists and turns in A Chance Encounter. I didn’t expect the answers I was getting.
The characters were well crafted, and I liked reading the alternative points of view. Rae Shaw was able to keep each character different enough, that it wasn’t difficult to tell them apart.
I enjoyed A Chance Encounter and would recommend giving it a shot.

Rae Shaw is a pen name for the author Rachel Walkley.
Rachel is based in the North West of England. She read her first grown-up detective novel at the age of eleven, which proved to be a catalyst for filling many shelves with crime books, which still occupy her home and grow in number whenever she visits a book shop.
As well as crime, Rachel likes to unplug from the real world and writes mysteries that have a touch of magic woven into family secrets.
