Over the Edge and Giveaway

Author: Mary Connealy
Publisher: Bethany House
August 2012
ISBN: 978-0764209130
Genre: Inspirational/historical romance

Seth Kincaid remembers almost everything…except getting married!

As a child, Seth survived a fire in a cave, then he fought in the Civil War are returned home “crazy.” He has bad nightmares, he’s blocking a lot of memories, and one of them, apparently, is his wife—Callie.

Callie managed to track down Seth’s brothers, fearing Seth was dead. She wanted her son, Connor, to know his Kincaid relatives. But when she found Rafe, she also found her runaway husband, Seth, and Callie is determined to shoot him.

Callie isn’t real happy to learn that Seth has no memory of her. But he steps up to the plate and takes responsibility for her and their son right quick. He’s also willing to try to make amends. But Callie wants no part of it. She doesn’t trust him, and nothing will change that—maybe.

OVER THE EDGE is the third book in The Kincaid Brides series. Readers will want to read Out of Control and In Too Deep first to find out what happened to make Seth the way he is. In fact, Seth was so crazy in the first two books I wondered how Ms. Connealy would redeem him to make him hero material.

This was the best book in the series. The bad guys are still after the wives of the first two brothers, the cavern is still key in the story, and it has all the humor and Wild West that Connealy fans have come to expect.

However, this whole series was a little flat for me, with clueless, crazy men, and bossy, overbearing women. I do think this was the best in the series. Fans of historical fiction, and Connealy will want to read this book. $14.99. 336 pages.

About the Book:

Seth Kincaid survived a fire in a cave, but he's never been the same. He was always a reckless youth, but now he's gone over the edge. He ran off to the Civil War and came back crazier than ever.

After the war, nearly dead from his injuries, it appears Seth got married. Oh, he's got a lot of excuses, but his wife isn't happy to find out Seth doesn't remember her. Callie has searched, prayed, and worried. Now she's come to the Kincaid family's ranch in Colorado to find her lost husband.

Callie isn't a long-suffering woman. Once she knows her husband is alive, she wants to kill him. She's not even close to forgiving him for abandoning her.

Then more trouble shows up in the form of a secret Seth's pa kept for years. The Kincaid brothers might lose their ranch if they can't sort things out. It's enough to drive a man insane--but somehow it's all making Seth see things more clearly. And now that he knows what he wants, no one better stand in his way.
