Product Description

Having fled a difficult home life, Civil War nurse Abigail Stuart feels like her only friend in the world is sweet but gravely wounded patient Jeremiah Calhoun. Fearing he won't survive, the Confederate soldier's last wish is that Abigail look after his sickly sister at home. Marry him, return to his horse farm, and it'll be hers.

Left with few choices, Abigail takes him up on his offer and moves to Missouri after his death, but just as the family learns to accept her, the real Jeremiah Calhoun appears puzzled to find a confounding woman posing as his wife. Jeremiah is determined to have his life back to how it was before the war, but his own wounds limit what he can do on his own. Still not fully convinced Abigail isn't duping him, he's left with no choice but to let the woman stay and help--not admitting to himself she may provide the healing his entire family needs.

Publisher's Description

Abigail Stuart Thought She was Jeremiah Calhoun's Widow.
But Jeremiah Calhoun Is Very Handsome, Very Alive, and Very Perplexed.
Most Inconvenient Indeed.

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?

    This review was written for 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!

    This review was written for A Most Inconvenient Marriage.
    I enjoyed every part of this story. A Most Inconvenient Marriage is one of those books that makes reviewing - and reading, for that matter- pure fun. Fresh, memorable, and charming, the story had my attention from the start and kept me smiling and laughing throughout.

    That's right. This book may be set during the Civil War, but it has many lighthearted moments to lift the spirit of the book and its readers. Of course, I was bound to love it. The setting hit close to my home and heart. It's not only inspired by my own small Missouri town, but the setting also resembles a similar thread to my own stories. Needless to say, this book was calling my name.

    I loved the unique twist on the "Marriage of Convenience" stories we're all familiar with. I've never read anything quite like this and the author's unique voice really shined. I have a feeling I could read other books by Regina and instantly recognize her style.

    This romantic tale kept me guessing at all the right places. The characters were endearing, the dialogue amusing, and the surprises satisfying to the end. The whole adventure made me glad I was along for the read. ;)

    I certainly plan on sharing A Most Inconvenient Marriage with my fellow reading friends, but I'm also making room for it on my bookshelf. It's a keeper!

    Thank you to Bethany House Publishers for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    This review was written for A Most Inconvenient Marriage.
    A Most Inconvenient Marriage was an enjoyable book to read. The main character, Abigail, a Civil War nurse, agrees to marry soldier Jeremiah Calhoun on his deathbed, in order to inherit his farm and what she desires most of all, a family. Abigail, a Northerner, takes her responsibility to her new family seriously, and manages their farm well. She does experience post-war prejudice in the small Missouri community. However, living Jeremiah Calhoun shows up, and she finds out that she had been deceived by the man she married. Because of business arrangements, she is allowed to remain on the farm for a while, and Abigail is able to help Jeremiah adjust to life after the war. In addition to recovering from a war injury, Jeremiah learns that the woman he loves has fallen for someone else.

    Both Abigail and Jeremiah are honorable, loving, hard-working people, who desire to do the right thing for their family and friends. Both can be stubborn, and Abigails trusting manner gets her into some scrapes. Both characters were fun to get to know and the development of trust between them made a great story.

    I recommend this book. This is the first I have read by Regina Jennings, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was given a copy of this book from the author & publisher in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.

    An Interesting Premise

    This review was written for A Most Inconvenient Marriage.
    A Most Inconvenient Marriage by Regina Jennings is historical fiction set right after the Civil War. I love the cover! That's one reason why I requested this book to review. Well, that and the title. It looks and sounds so intriguing doesn't it? I did find it interesting and unique but not as good as some books I've read. :-)

    Abigail Stuart was a Yankee nurse helping Confederate prisoners. She became attached to one in particular, and when he begged her to marry her so that she could take care of his mother and sick sister she finally said yes. After he died, she traveled to his horse farm in Missouri. They had lost most of their stock, but her daddy had taught her all about horses so she is sure she can get it up and running again.

    Injured and in hiding for the last few months of the war, Jeremiah is finally able to go back home. Once there he is shocked to find a woman saying she is his widow. Furious, he demands her to leave, but when she refuses he is flabbergasted. Finally they come to an agreement. She will stay until the mare has her foal since she put in the money to breed her, and then she will leave.

    Jeremiah begins to rely on Abigail more and more as the days go by since his leg injury prevents him from doing many of the things he could easily do before. Abigail convinces Jeremiah to let her help him with his injury but begins to regret ever suggesting it. The longer she is around him the more she doesn't want to leave him. Will she ever have a home again?

    I enjoyed the story especially the unusualness of the marriage, It was a funny conundrum to read about, for sure! Abigail was a very well written character, and I immediately liked her courageous spirit. Jeremiah was so serious about everything, and I liked how Abigail brought out a lighter side to him. Plus, she helped his family become whole once again. :-) On the other hand, I didn't like some of the interactions and conversations between Jeremiah and Abigail. It wasn't realistic for that time and was too sensual for then especially. The reason I read Christian fiction is for clean reads, but lately there are more and more sensualness in Christian books. I'm sure everyone will disagree with me on that... :-) Overall it was a different, fun read full of unexpected twists and turns.

    I was given this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    This review was written for A Most Inconvenient Marriage.
    Abigail Stewart has served her time as a nurse well, aiding soldiers from both sides as the war nears an end. But having fled her family to become a nurse, what will she do now?

    When Abigail meets Jeremiah Calhoun, it is obvious that the wounded soldier is about to breathe his last breath. As she spends time trying to make him more comfortable, Abigail learns of his fiancee, whom he calls his Juliet. But he seems more concerned with the well-being of his invalid sister. In order to provide a means of caring for her after he's gone, Jeremiah begs Abigail to marry him, thus inheriting his farm with the promise that she will care for his sister.

    With no other options available, Abigail agrees to the marriage and has everything legalized before Jeremiah dies. But after going home to run his farm, Abigail soon realizes that things may not be all that they appear. Jeremiah's sister is sickly and unwelcoming; his mother is excited but surprised to have a new daughter-in-law; Jeremiah's fiancee seems to have found a new love; and Jeremiah Calhoun is not dead.

    Suddenly, a marriage of convenience turns into a mighty sticky situation as everyone tries to figure out what has happened and who Abigail married.

    I enjoyed reading this story, but I think it was pretty predictable. The storyline was easy to read, and the characters were well-developed. Overall, I enjoyed this book, and I think it is a great read for vacation.
