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.
Just when you begin to wonder if there can possibly be any more original ideas for historical western romance novels, Mary Connealy delivers one that is totally fresh and unique. She also manages to mix her own special brand of humor with action, drama, and suspense to come up with a rip-roaring, page-turning, just plain fun read that also gets across a strong message of faith.
Over The Edge is the perfect ending for the Kincaid Brides series although one big surprise makes me wonder if this is really the end. Connealy’s brash and bold yet surprisingly innocent characters kept me wanting the story to last forever while eager to find out what would happen. Over The Edge is a wonderful story with a satisfying resolution that includes forgiveness and reconciliation as well as much needed emotional healing for the Kincaid brothers. I could go on but would really like to avoid spoilers.
If you are already a Mary Connealy fan, Over The Edge will not disappoint. If you have not yet discovered her books, go ahead and pick up the entire series. You will be glad you did.
