Regina Jennings proves that marriage doesn’t always start with love in her book, A Most Inconvenient Marriage.
Abigail Stewart has no place to go after serving in the war as a nurse. So when Jeremiah Calhoun, a patient who is on his last breath, asks her to marry him in exchange for the care of his farm and family after his death, Abigail agrees to the “convenient marriage.”
But when Abigail arrives in Jeremiah’s small town, she realizes that taking over the farm may not be as easy as she may have hoped. Upon her arrival, Abigail meets her new sister-in-law, who is quite sickly and waiting for death herself. Jeremiah’s mother is surprised by a new daughter-in-law but excited to welcome a new member of the family. Jeremiah’s fiancee even takes a shine to Abigail, since she has moved on to find a new love. But her new life becomes quite inconvenient when Jeremiah Calhoun returns home to find a new wife he has never met!
As Abigail fights to stay in her new family, she realizes that sometimes love comes in different ways.
I thought that this was a pretty light read and would make a good book for vacation. The storyline is pretty easy to follow, and the characters are fairly predictable.
