A man-shy woman!
A wedding-shy man!
A preaching-shy preacher!
And one conniving outlaw with plans — take over the town, then the Territory!
Middle-aged, Pearl King heads to Come-By-Chance, hoping for a quiet life of gentle female companionship and time to dedicate to the causes she believes in — Equality for All — regardless of gender, race or religion.
However, when she arrives in town, the entire place is in an uproar — with a preacher who won’t preach, a Mayoral election campaign rife with corruption and Gold Rush Fever!
And added to all that, it seems her friend, Beryl, has matchmaking on her mind too — involving Pearl and “Uncle” Maurice Carlson, who has been commissioned to build Beryl a grand home in the center of town. But it’s complicated. Fearless campaigner, Pearl, and normally fearless dabster, Maurice, both live with the shame and scars of a failed marriage.
As if all that isn’t trouble enough, the town’s popular Kate Davis finds herself up against Slim Jim Murdoch for the position of Mayor — and it’s hardly what you’d call a fair fight. And let us not forget our beloved Preacher, Ernest James Coy, who’s come clean with his past and must now deal with the consequences.
The Come-By-Chance books are jam-packed with gun-totin’ adventure, intrigue and true love, all set in 1880s frontier America.
So get ready for another story of True Love and True Adventure, with no shortage of romance & feel-good fun, at your next visit with the lovable folk of Come-By-Chance, Montana, in the year of 1885.
I really hope you enjoy the next installment in the Come-By-Chance saga!
