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?
Loved this book. Abigail as the lead character was a perfect choice. Hardworking, honest and a real spitfire when provoked. You can see her love for horses and her love for helping people heal. Even though Jeremiah's sister Rachel, is not the most friendly of people, Abigail continues to love and nurse her throughout her illness.
Jeremiah, puts his past promises first and foremost, despite the best thing that ever happened to him and, his family and home being right in front of him. I wasn't fond of the character Laurel and found her a bit wishy washy and couldn't understand what Jeremiah saw in her.
Stars out of 5 : 4.5 It was no surprise how this story ended. There was the odd twist and turn in the book that kept you wondering and interested. It's not a hard read and the story was easy enough to get into. Regina is one those authors whose book are always a good read when you want a quick and easy book to keep you occupied.
