A Most Inconvenient Marriage by Regina Jennings - Review

With few options of her own, nurse Abigail Stuart agrees to marry her patient, a gravely wounded soldier calling himself Jeremiah Calhoun. They arrange a quick ceremony before he dies, giving Abigail the rights to his Ozark farm and giving Jeremiah the peace of knowing someone will care for his ailing sister after he's gone--a practical solution for both of them.

After the war, Abigail fulfills her side of the bargain--until the real Jeremiah Calhoun shows up, injured but definitely alive, and wastes no time in challenging Abigail's story. Abigail is flummoxed. After months of claiming to be his widow, how can she explain that she's never seen this Jeremiah Calhoun before? How can she convince him that she isn't trying to steal his farm? And will she find a way to stay, even though this practical arrangement has turned into a most inconvenient marriage?

I have enjoyed every one of Regina's books that I've read so far and this one was no different. She has a style of writing that keeps you interested and wanting to hurry through the book to see how it ends. Her character Abigail is a strong woman that follows through with a promise even though it was based on a lie by the person she made the promise too. I don't think anyone will find this book dull as there is a lot going on with Abigail and the Calhoun family. I would encourage any historical fiction lover to read Regina's newest book and if you haven't read any of her other books, be sure and grab those too!

I received this as an e-book from Net Galley with an agreement to give an honest review. The review above is my honest opinion of this book.
