Book Review: A Most Inconvenient Marriage

A Most inconvenient Marriage reviewFrom Back Cover

“Abigail Stuart thought she was Jeremiah Calhoun’s widow. But Jeremiah Calhoun is very handsome, very alive, and very perplexed. Most inconvenient indeed.”

My thoughts

I am not much of a fan of historical fiction; however, when I had the opportunity to read and review A Most Inconvenient Marriage through the Bethany House blogger’s book review program, I couldn’t resist. The title of the book and the book cover intrigued me enough to want to read the book.

I’m actually glad I did read the book. Did it change my opinion of historical fiction? Not really. Surprisingly, however, my distaste for historical fiction did not mar my enjoyment of the book at all. In fact, the book held my attention and I enjoyed getting to know the various characters. I liked how the relationship between Abigail and the “real” Jeremiah developed in the midst of the trials and twists that confronted them. I enjoyed Regina Jenning’s writing style and the way she interjects some humor and few elements of surprise into her writing.

If you are someone who likes historical fiction, I would recommend A Most Inconvenient Marriage and give it four (4) stars.

      I had to smile at your comment. My stack of tbr is so long I will have to live to be a few thousand years old to get through them all. LOL!

  2. Hello Carol, as you may know, I love historical fiction (given that I have written two historical romances)so this sounds like this would be an enjoyable read. Like you and RAnn, I have a huge pile of TBR books too!

      Hi Ellen. It may sound strange but one of the reasons that I loved your books is because they didn’t “feel” like historical fiction. (If that makes sense!) The characters in your books are so relatable and they have a more contemporary feel than most historical fiction books I have read in the past.

      The One other thing about “A Most Inconvenient Marriage” is that it is not particuarly Christian, which is fine, of course. It just seems like the more “non-Christian” books I read, the more I prefer, and gravitate toward, Christian books, though. 🙂
