“A Most Inconvenient Marriage” Book Review

Mar 30, 2015 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing Regina Jenning’s newest novel, A Most Inconvenient Marriage. This is the first book I’ve read of Regina’s and it was beyond wonderful!


As is my custom, if I could ask Regina one question about A Most Inconvenient Marriage, it would be — “Was it hard not to give away the mistaken identity right away?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!


And without further ado, on to Rachel’s Back Talk!


From the Back Cover:

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 was a first that I have read from Regina Jennings and I was blown away! I love the plot line of a woman who moved to a strange place as the wife of a dead solider, only to realize that the soldier was indeed not dead. It was intense, humorous, and altogether a beautiful story.

I loved the characters of Abigail and Jeremiah. Abigail was this strong, courageous woman determined not to fail on a promise she made. Unfortunately, her dead “husband” shows up claiming not to be her dead husband and wants her out. Abigail, of course, stands her ground. She has found a home there. She and Jeremiah are often arguing, but when trouble ensues, I love how Jeremiah sees to making sure Abigail is protected and kept safe. They seem to be able to tell each other things that they have told no one and yet, they are kept apart.

Oh I just loved this book!
