This was the first book i'd read by Maggie Osborne, and my all time favorite romance ever. The three heroines in the book are so different but want the same thing, respect, friendship and of course true love.
You'll love this book, the humor and romance are wonderful. And if your like me you'll love love clara and bear. they are hilarious.

Spinster Juliette March was warned by her aunt not to marry Jean Jacques Villette. Now he has taken off with her inheritance and she is hot on his trail. But what she finds is Mrs. Villette number two, Clara Klaus, a woman who ran a boardinghouse until her husband talked her into selling it and giving him the money. Juliette and Clara hate each other on sight, but grudgingly team together to travel to Seattle to find their no-good husband. But on arriving in Seattle, they find Zoe Wilder, Jean Jacques latest wife. When Zoe learns that she isn't the only Mrs. Villette, she vows revenge. As the three bickering women embark on a journey through the Yukon Territory and the Alaskan Wilderness, they grow to depend on each other for their well-being and possibly their lives.

Maggie Osborne is one of my favorite historical romance authors. She knows how to write well-rounded characters. Each woman has a reason for marrying Jean Jacques, a reason for breaking out of their old lives and discovering themselves along the way. Of course, this being a romance, they each meet men along the trail and fall in love. It's only a little bit of a problem that they're already married.

I enjoyed this book and absolutely loved the unique setting. I can't imagine camping in freezing temperatures for six months or hiking up a mountain carrying my possession on my back. I wouldn't have lasted a week. The romances are satisfying though predictable. But there was a love scene in this story that was utterly hilarious. My rating: 4 Stars.

Oh, so predictable, and oh, so corny. This book could have been made into a romance comic book for junior high school girls.

If you are looking for a laughing-out-loud funny book -- this is it!

I agree with another reviewer that this has lots of predictable aspects, however, I decided to sit back and let Maggie Osborne lead me along on a fun romp.

The story spins on the reaction of 3 women (lonely, wealthy spinsters) who have been wooed, married, robbed and deserted. The bad boy is one Jean Jacques Villette!

Besides these 3, heaven knows how many others Villette might have married and conned. However, when these 3 get together, they decide to confront the bigamist and kill him!

These women absolutely cannot stand each other and spend a lot of time trying to figure out why Villette would bother to marry the others.

Before long, they figure out that Villette was gathering (their) money to undertake a trip to the gold fields of the Yukon.

With staggering audacity, these 3 greenhorns decide to go too! Thus, the story is set into motion -- watching Juliette, Clara and Zoe undertake a trip few men would accomplish!

Since my initial reading, I've re-read this several times. It has an unusual background -- the Canadian coast and Alaska - plus the fever of the Yukon Gold Rush -- that adds much to the story.

Without a doubt, this story includes some of the funniest scenes I've ever read! A great book!

Juliette March is an easy target for the seductive Jean Jacques Villette. When he disappears with her inheritance after their wedding, Juliette sets out to find the scoundrel. She never expects to meet Clara Klaus, who ran a boardinghouse until Jean Jacques swept her off her feet,then swept himself out of town. While following the trail of their no-good husband, Clara and Juliette run into Zoe Wilder, another victim of Jean Jacques. Now Zoe's ready to put a bullet in his cheating heart. When these three vengeful ladies embark on a misbegotten quest to Alaska, things get downright dangerous- especially for the unsuspecting men they entice along the way....

Interesting plot, 3 women having married the same man, the man who took from them and then headed for the Alaska Gold Rush. In an attempt to find him, the women cross each other's paths and together they also head for Alaska. Unfortunately, there are aspects that do not match the time period. But it was an entertaining read.
