Jane Peck is a nineteenth-century girl with a mind of her own and a handsome suitor who loves her for it. She's outwitted wild animals, vengeful ghosts, and a disloyal fiance, but when her finishing school nemesis, Sally Biddle, invades the Washington Territory, Jane finds everything she holds dear threatened -- including her true love, a rakish sailor named Jehu. As the Biddles of Philadelphia charm their way into Jane's frontier community, it will take all of the spunk and spit she can muster to protect her land and preserve her dreams. Will Jane's claim on happiness slip away?

I absolutly love Boston Jane, or Jane Peck. I read all three books in the Boston Jane series within five days. My favorite types of books are historical fiction. That's why I really liked this series of books. As well as liking the type of book, I also liked the character, Jane Peck. She is so hilarious and stubborn. I either had to hold my breath or chew my gum really hard to stifle my laugh, so I wouldn't "disrupt" any of my classmates.I can only hope and pray thea there will be a fourth book in the Boston Jane series. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE e-mail me if there will be a fourth book!! thank you so much.

In this third book of the Boston Jane series, Shoalwater Bay is moving towards civilization. Jane is now living at the Frinks' hotel, in the company of several other women, while she waits for Jehu to finish building her cabin on her claim. But things turn sour when Jane's old nemesis Sally Biddle arrives with her parents. Sally slowly works her poison, until she steals Jane's room, alienates her from her friends, and even causes a fight with Jehu. But Sally isn't Jane's only problem-- she must also deal with her ex-fiance William, now justice of the peace, who is tearing apart the family of Jane's friend Cocumb and threatening to take away Jane's land. Can Jane continue to overcome the hardships of the fronteir when these hardships are conniving people rather than weather conditions and mountain men?

Although I still liked the second book better, this was a fine addition to the series. It would have been nice to see more of Jehu, though!
