Genre: FICT, Historical Fiction
Short Book 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?
I read this book in one sitting and couldn’t put it down. This was my first book by Regina Jennings and I have to say that I can’t wait to get my hands on more of her books.
I couldn’t keep the smile off of my face during some of the scenes. Abigail and Jeremiah literally acted like a married couple from basically the first meeting. Their scenes together were just epic.
Set right after the civil war ended Abigail and Jeremiah were both home from the war; and as I have often said in my other reviews this is one of my favorite eras. They are both adjusting to a new normal and dealing with aftermath of war.
Just reading this one book, I am undoubtedly a huge fan off Regina Jennings and would recommend this book to anyone hankering for an awesome historical novel. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
