HASH(0x9728f93c) out of 5 stars Once again, Ms. Osborne shows us why she's one of the best ! 28 Sept. 2000
By Nancy - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Spinster heiress Juliette March has lived all her life within the confines of proper society. Along comes Jean Jacques Villette, with his debonair ways and dashing good looks; soon he and Juliette are married. But just when Juliette thinks she's found true wedded bliss, Jean Jacques and her inheritance disappear. Refusing to believe that he married her for the money, Juliette decides to track the man down. It's not long before she finds herself confronting not her handsome, wayward husband, but Mrs.Villette number two!
Innkeeper Clara Klaus has sold her establishment, eager to follow her husband up north. A no-nonsense, practical thinker, Clara was sure she'd found the perfect husband in the honey-tongued Romeo. Now, out of the blue comes Juliette, displaying a duplicate "heirloom" wedding ring that Clara herself possesses. Realizing she, too, has been duped, Clara joins forces with Juliette. And just when they think things couldn't get worse, they bump into wife number three!
Zoe Wilder has spent most of her life trying to escape her poor working-class background. She meets and weds her ideal of a gentleman: one Jean Jacques Villette. But now, connived out of her money and left high and dry, Zoe's mad as a hornet. With the intent of helping Jean Jacques meet his maker, Zoe joins in the pursuit.
There are so many enjoyable aspects to this book, that it's hard to single out just what makes it so special. Juliette, Clara, and Zoe all share center stage, their trials and tribulations interwoven together. Watching these women, who initially hate each other, grow to overcome their self-doubts and petty jealousies, makes for one delightful read. With witty dialogue, great secondary characters, some truly memorable events (a certain arm wrestling match had me laughing out loud), images that come alive on the pages, and her attention to historical detail, it's another great read from the gifted Maggie Osborne, and one you surely won't want to miss. Enjoy!

HASH(0x9728f990) out of 5 stars Well worth the read 3 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jean Jacques Villette travels the West Coast hitting small towns in California, Oregon, and Washington where he finds lonely wealthy spinsters to seduce, marry, rob, and desert. In California, he hit on Juliette March who for nine months believed in his love and that he would return until she followed his trail to Oregon, where she finds victim number two, Clara Klaus. Together they head to Washington where they are joined by dupe number three Zoe Wilder. He married all three of them.

The wives decide to confront and perhaps kill the scoundrel. His trail takes them to Alaska where Villette has a surprise in store for his three spouses. Meanwhile each woman meets a handsome man who falls in love with her. However, once burned, Juliette, Clara, and Zoe find it difficult to give away their respective hearts again.

Readers will enjoy Maggie Osborne's Americana romance that brings to life the last decade of the nineteenth century. The story line is entertaining due to the powerful depiction of the ensemble. The audience will understand why the women married Villette. The charming cad includes a compassionate side that makes him into a complete character and not just a totally evil villain. I DO3 is an intriguing historical romance that will provide enjoyment to fans of Americana.

HASH(0x9728fb64) out of 5 stars Thoroughly delightful!!! 28 May 2003

Format: Mass Market Paperback
What a completely charming book!! Normally, a book that revolves around 3 separate romances would throw me off, but this was just too good!!! I have to tell you this book had some of the funniest lovescenes I have ever encountered...the scene between Juliette and Ben when he was setting the table is one that I wont soon forget!! As much as I loved the romance, and the fun storyline and setting, my favorite part of this book had to be the friendship between the 3 women...they were all so different..Juliette was a riot..Im telling you this is a must read!!

HASH(0x972be1b0) out of 5 stars Maggie Osborne has written another keeper 15 Oct. 2000
By McKennaea - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is wonderful. Three abandoned brides set out after their perfect husband, only to discover, via their "heirloom" wedding rings, that they have all married the same fortune hunting bigamist. Determined to regain their money and perhaps to kill the scoundrel, these three completely mismatched and unwilling travelling companions set out on the trail to the Klondike. Of course, they each meet the man of their dreams while in hot pursuit of their "husband". This book is well researched and beautifully written. Each character is well delineated, with all their idiosyncrasies displayed consistently. Along the way you will encounter two of the funniest seduction scenes I have ever read, and an infamous arm wrestling match. As to how the author manages to portray six love affairs and seven major characters realistically in one book with aplomb- well, you'll just have to read this super book to find out.

HASH(0x972be1d4) out of 5 stars Laugh out loud reading 22 Jun. 2001

This book sat on my dresser for a long time and it even traveled to Georgia with me without being read. I just couldn't get into it. Finally, when I had nothing else to read I pushed past the first 100 pages and boy am I glad I did. It turned into a really good read!
It does take a while to get into the characters and to get the actual plot moving -- 3 women discover they are married to the same man who has disappeared with their money and they decide to follow him to the Yukon where he is joining the gold rush. It did take me a while to identify with the women and I found them to be annoying at first. But I grew to admire their tenacity and perseverance. More importantly, they made me laugh. This book contains one (okay two) of the funniest love scenes I've read. And, I found it very, very interesting to read about the Yukon gold rush and what people had to go through to get there. As a matter of fact, I found a web site that has some good pics and maps to show where the characters in this book travel .
I would recommend this book and it is worth the read for the last third of the book.
So now the book is sitting on my sister's dresser...
