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 town is in an uproar – 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 builder, "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 enough trouble, 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 dearly beloved Preacher, Ernest James Coy, comes clean with his past and must 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.

Newcomer Lillie Lewicki’s arrival sets off a chain of events that reveals a dark secret about the town’s much-loved preacher, Ernest James Coy. And for the preacher, life will never be the same again.

Sweet Lillie Lewicki has known terrible tragedy in her short life — but with Beryl Waters’ help, she finally finds the courage to risk loving again. Encouraged by her dear friends Ava and Ina, she travels to Come-By-Chance to marry a fine young man, Marty Black.

An intelligent, handsome young school teacher, Jake Tanner, joins her party on the final leg of their trip — and along the way, his feelings for Lillie grow far beyond friendship. But what can he do? The girl is already spoken for. Will Lillie follow through on her promise to marry young Marty Black? Or will Jake Tanner be the one to win her fragile heart?

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.
