A Most Inconvenient Marriage
Author: Regina Jennings
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: December 2nd, 2014
A Marriage of Convenience Turns Most Inconvenient in this Historical CharmerWhy I'm Waiting:
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.
I've enjoyed the couple of books by Regina Jennings. They have a wonderful mix of humor and heart to them. I love how this book takes the popular marriage of convenience and turns it on its head and makes things a little more interesting.
