Pearl – The Divorcee and the Wedding-Shy Dabster

PearlA 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.   

Pearl is available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, Apple and Kobo.


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!

Ava & Ina – The Twins and the Fist-Fightin’ Cowboys

rebrand-mob-jj-ava-ina-300x457-ebook-coverTwo weddings. Two evil outlaws. Two more Come-By-Chance women in the family way!

Cultured, elegant German twins, Ava and Ina Biermann, arrive in town to marry the Carmichaels, and Jed and Jethro couldn’t be happier.
But their ma, Penny – toughest and best fighter in the history of Tent Boxing, and all ’round good ol’ gal – ain’t happy about it at all. For one thing, she figures those girls too dang pretty – and for another, their long slender musicians’ fingers look too useless to do any real work.

On top of all that, Opal’s father, the horrible Otis Trigger, has found out where she is! He’s on his way to Come-By-Chance to take his revenge on his daughter, and rob the bank while he’s at it. Trigger’s found just the right man to help him too, and busted the man out of jail – all legal-like.
Yes, it’s the diabolical Slim Jim Murdoch. And the evil man has had plenty of time to plot his revenge on the decent Come-By-Chance townsfolk.

Trigger and Slim Jim are not about to let a pair of long-fingered musicians, the Wilkinsons, ol’ Wally Davis, the Sheriff and Opal, or the rest of the Come-By-Chance crew stand in their way!

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.

But life wasn’t meant to be easy, and many obstacles will need to be overcome for Coral to find what she needs – misunderstandings, secrets, her son’s life in deadly peril from outlaws – but most of all, Coral must learn to rise above her own fears, if she and her son are ever to become truly happy.

I’m very excited about my New Series – Brides of 1885!

My next book  will be titled, Coral and it’s due out October 2015.

Hi Everyone,

Come-By-Chance is a growing town and, well, it seems I too have caught Mail Order Bride fever!
I have another five Come-By-Chance books planned, all filled with fun, romance and adventure.
As the first six books were set in 1884, before Opal came along in 1885, I’ve decided that each series should be six books long, and tell of a whole Come-By-Chance year.

So, Opal will now become –
Book One – Brides of 1885. 

Book Two  – Brides of 1885 will be Coral. It’s the story of Coral Mellors and her tiny son William … and their search for a new husband, a new father and a wonderful Come-By-Chance life. I think you’ll love it as much as I do.

Best wishes,
Juliet J

But along the trail from Billings to Come-By-Chance, their party is held up by the desperate outlaw Slim Jim Murdoch!
