In Too Deep
Title: IN TOO DEEP
Author: Mary Connealy
Publisher: Bethany House
Genre: Inspirational/historical romance
Ethan Kincaid is stunned when his brother Rafe orders him to marry the newly widowed Audra Gilliland that he just met – Audra has a toddler and a newborn from her just deceased husband, and Rafe is adamant that Ethan marry her, giving her protection and her children a pa. Ethan agrees because he finds her attractive, and he finds himself wed.
Audra was a sweet quiet wife in book one, caring for her scum of a husband, but in book two she seems determined to rule the roost and she lets loose on anyone who dares to cross her path.
Her ex-husband still has someone on his trail, someone who claims he stole large sums of money. Audra has seen no sign of this money. They lived in a shack. But the man who lost the money will stop at nothing to get it back. Will Audra find the money—if there even is any?
IN TOO DEEP is the second book in the The Kincaid Brides series. It is set in the same mountainous region filled with deep caverns that deeply scarred the Kincaid brothers years earlier. All three of the men are terrified of the caves, and the women in the book aren’t—finding it fascinating.
This book fell a bit flat for me, as did the first one Out of Control. I don’t care much for clueless idiot men and Ethan pretty much took the cake there. I also don’t like extremely bossy women and Audra shaped up that way in a hurry. Still, there is great humor in the book, and the sexual attraction is there, even if Ethan doesn’t have clue one what happens between a man and woman… I’ve read all Ms. Connealy’s books so far, and loved them all—with the exception of this series. If you like historical romance with great humor, you might love IN TOO DEEP. $14.99. 331 pages.
