A Most Inconvenient Marriage: A Book Review
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?

The book is very well-written and has something for everyone: romance, mystery and even comedy, and you will find yourself reading late into the night to finish this book. This book is fast paced and it was full of richness in the historical descriptions, making it very evident that much research was done by the author for the sake of writing this book. The main characters of Abigail and Jeremiah were a delight to follow through the book and make the storyline fascinating! I truly enjoyed reading this novel.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
