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.

Book 2
Coral Mellors has a darling three-year-old son, a dead husband, and no place to live. Her husband was a no-good, wife-beating horse-thief, and Coral is terrified her dear Willie will turn out the same.

She decides she must marry the quietest man she can find, and keep her son away from horses and wild men, no matter what it takes.

She hears of a man in search of a wife — a gentle Come-By-Chance farmer who makes beautiful leatherwork and grows things, and decides she will travel there to marry him.

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.

The Come-By-Chance books are jam-packed with gun-totin’ adventure, intrigue and true love, all set in 1880s frontier America.

Book 3
Two weddings, Two evil outlaws, and 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!

The Come-By-Chance books are jam-packed with gun-totin’ adventure, intrigue and true love, all set in 1880s frontier America.

Book 1
When 18-year-old Ophelia Trigger hears a voice in her head tell her, "It's time to start giving, and time to start doing what's right," she is overcome by a powerful feeling of goodness - and she knows she can't turn a blind eye to the evil doings of her corrupt father any longer. She decides she must flee, and begin to make amends for all his wrongdoing - but when she leaves, the evil man frames her for murder!

Like a female Robin Hood with a six-gun, she goes West to make her escape, and on her way becomes Opal Farewell. For her, the town of Come-By-Chance will be a place to hide, a place to build friendships - perhaps even someplace to marry ... if she can just stay clear of the law. 

Meanwhile, upstanding Billings Sheriff, Calvin Johnson, is on the trail of WANTED MURDERESS - Ophelia Trigger.
And he's not the only one...

An Inspirational story of cat and mouse, give and take, and the difference between the facts and the Truth.

The Come-By-Chance books are jam-packed with gun-totin' adventure, intrigue and true love, all set in 1880s frontier America.

Juliet James
In the early hours of an icy Montana morning, the recently widowed Rose Gray wraps her baby up tight in a blanket, and escapes from the home that now belongs to her greedy and powerful in-laws.

She travels to Come-By-Chance to meet young fur-trapper Henry Miller, who has agreed to marry her if she will come - but Henry knows nothing of Rose's baby, or even her seven-year marriage.

Can Rose expect such a young man to accept not just herself, but her baby daughter Minnie as well?

Might Rose and Henry find love amidst all the troubles that threaten to tear them apart?

And what is Rose's secret - a secret so terrible she can see no other future than to live with the shame of it, each and every day for the rest of her life?

It's time to catch up with the Come-By-Chance townsfolk: the strapping Wilkinson brothers Ben, Matt and Toby; recently wed Ruby, Emily and Violet; the Beans, the Hearts, the Milligans, the Carmichaels and of course, the feisty Kate and incorrigible Wally Davis.

So hold onto your hat and settle in for another Come-By-Chance story of True Love and True Adventure!
