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?

    A Most Inconvenient Marriage is an enjoyable read. It is a historical romance set after the Civil War. Abigail was a nurse during the war and fulfilled a dying soldier's request of marriage. This was so that she could go and take care of his ill sister and mother on the family farm without difficulty. Unfortunately a person shows up stating he is the real soldier that owns that property. It lead to many humorous and romantic episodes.

    I recieved this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Regina Jennings in her new book A Most Inconvenient Marriage published by Bethany House introduces us to Abigail Stuart.

    From the back cover: Abigail Stuart Thought She was Jeremiah Calhouns 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 hes gonea practical solution for both of them.

    After the war, Abigail fulfills her side of the bargainuntil the real Jeremiah Calhoun shows up, injured but definitely alive, and wastes no time in challenging Abigails story. Abigail is flummoxed. After months of claiming to be his widow, how can she explain that shes never seen this Jeremiah Calhoun before? How can she convince him that she isnt 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?

    Wow, what a situation. Abigail feels sorry for a wounded soldier and marries him to grant his last wish of caring for his younger sister. Then he dies and she relocates to Missouri. After convincing the family that everything she tells them is true Jeremiah returns home. However this is not the Jeremiah that she married and died it is the real Jeremiah and he has no idea of who she is. Now these two have to work together. This is one of the cleverest stories I have ever come across. This has drama, some suspense and loads of fun. Quite possible this might be Ms. Jennings best. And on top of everything this is a romance. This is a book about family and what is important in life. Ms. Jennings knows how to create characters that live on the page and that we get to know and love. Get ready for an exciting read that will keep you flipping pages and keep you emotionally involved.

    This story is one that I love to read! The setting is during the end of the Civil War and the main characters have one adventure after another. I was able to read it fairly quickly, as I wanted to find out what was going to happen next. Thank you Regina Jennings for a beautifully written book!

    This review was written for A Most Inconvenient Marriage - eBook.
    I truely loved this book. it was a fun book, with lots of wit and thought put into it. to be honest, it was down right entertaining. For a nurse, Abigail, to marry a dying soilder, who she thought was Jeremiah, so she could care for his mother & ailing sister and take over his farm, only months later to have the real Jeremiah show up. turns her world upside down & his. but the big question is... Who did she marry? Abigail & Jeremiah are both people with lots of scars and deep hurts, who need each other. and you have to read this book to learn about the "skunks" & "the pie doughwell" to funny. you just have to read

    Quirky Fun Read

    I loved this book. It was witty, comical, and a downright entertaining read. The more I read these kinds of books, the more critical I become because it gets difficult to find something unique that keeps my interest without becoming the same thing I've read before. Quick summary is that Abigail is a nurse and marries a dying soldier named Jeremiah so she can take care of his family when he is gone but also has a safe place to go to. However, after a few months, a person with the same name as her deceased husband shows up at the farm and is in fact the real Jeremiah. So who did she marry? How does she navigate this new twist? This book is quirky and I highly recommend it.

    I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
