Three good women find out they are all married to the same scoundrel. Do they whimper and wale?. Not very much. And if he thinks a little thing like traveling to the remote area of the Yukon is going to save him he has another thing coming. Watching these three ladies go from best of enemies to best of friends while they track him down is great fun. This book is full of adventure and offbeat romance. Very good reading.

Ms. Osborne does it again!
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 deftly interwoven together. All three are well-defined, three-dimensional characters, each with their own idiosyncrasies and insecurities. These characterizations and the personalities that immerge are one of the things that Ms. Obsorne writes best. 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 a wealth of historical detail, this is one book you surely won't want to miss. So, if you're wondering if these vengeful wives ever meet up with the infamous Jean Jacques Villette, which one of the trio is the real legal wife, or just who will find their true love, you'll have to read the book to find out. I won't give the ending away. But just remember this: Not all the gold that glitters lies deep in the fields of Alaska, for there's plenty of gold to be found among the pages of I Do, I Do, I Do as well.Was this review helpful?

Love Lost, Love Found
A romance filled with adventure, unlike anything I have ever read before. Maggie's books are always guaranteed to please and this one is no exception. Would I recommend this book? My answer would have to be... I DO!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A Glorious Gal Pal Romp
Thankfully, Maggie Osborne can't write a simpering heroine who sits around and waits for things to happen. Instead, she delivers a terrific trio who hitch up their britches and march into adventure in the Golden Yukon with their hearts tied to their dog sleds. What they find along the trail; confidence, compassion and companionship, with some lusty true, true love thrown in for good measure, surprises them all. The heroes and heroines have tart tongues and quick wits that drive an agile plot based on a delightfully devious premise. In a word X 3: Read It, Read It, Read It!Was this review helpful?

enjoyable Americana romance
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. <P>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. <P> 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. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
