A Most Inconvenient Marriage by Regina Jennings

Goodreads | Amazon
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?

While I have read a lot of good books recently, Regina Jenning’s A Most Inconvenient Marriage was the first book in a while that just would not let me put it down. This novel has everything I love in a historical romance and it held my imagination captive from beginning to end. I fell in love with the characters and their quirky, difficult circumstance and enjoyed watching them grow and bond. A Most Inconvenient Marriage is a delightful, sweet and fun read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I wholeheartedly recommend to any readers of historical romance.

Thanks to Bethany House and NetGalley, I received a copy of A Most Inconvenient Marriage and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
