I have not been a huge fan of this series, but I do think that each book has been better than the last. I really enjoyed the romance aspect of this book. The concept of Seth not remembering his wife, but still being attracted to her anyway was interesting. I liked the "action" part of this book better than in the last two books as well. I think it is because this book was not as suspenseful. I do not do well with scary things, so I liked that this one was pretty tame when it came to that. Overall it was a sweet book that I enjoyed, but probably won't read again.
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.

Mary Connealy in her new book, “Over The Edge” Book Three in The Kincaid
Brides series published by Bethany House Publishers concludes the series
with the focus on Seth Kincaid. From the back cover: Seth Kincaid
remembers almost everything… except getting married! Seth Kincaid
survived a fire in a cave, but he hasn’t been the same since. Then he
fought in the Civil War and returned to Colorado crazier than ever.
Somewhere along the line, it appears Seth got married. Oh, he has a lot
of excuses, but his wife isn’t too happy to find out Seth doesn’t
remember her. Callie isn’t a long-suffering woman. When Seth
disappeared, she searched, prayed, and worried. Now she’s come out west
to wrangle her long-lost husband. Seth is willing to make amends.
Callie is more interested in shooting him. Can they rekindle their love
before one of them goes over the edge? This is the third book in the
series. Unfortunately I have not read the previous two so I have missed
the events that are coming to fruition here like the cave fire and a few
other incidents. Ms. Connealy is a very talented writer and she tries
to provide the necessary background information in this book but it
seems to me that you need to read the previous two books to really
understand what is going on here. Having said that as a stand alone
book it is pretty good. It is filled with excitement and humor and Wild
West action. As I said if you have not read the previous two books in
this series you can get through this one and enjoy it. Win a Nook Color

This is Book 3 in the Kincaid series, and each of the Kincaid brothers is as different in temperment and personality as any three brothers can be. And despite having weak and uninvolved parents and being left to grow up on their own while running wild, the men they have become are bound by an intrinsic nature of honesty, kindness and faith. Each is tormented by past fears and failures to be overcome, not the least of whom is Seth who is tormented by vivid nightmares and amnesia. All three books in the series are a delight, and I recommend beginning with Book one. I am hoping for a 4th book in this series which will let us see a happy ending for young Heath.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

What I liked: It was exciting, funny, and intriguing. I really liked Callie -- but I've yet to meet a heroine I didn't like in a Connealy book.
What I didn't like: If you've not read the previous books in the series, I think it may be a bit confusing as people pop up without explanation but if you can just go with it then everything makes sense. The only other that bothered me was how everyone kept calling Seth crazy, I know it wasn't meant in a nasty way but I hurt for him.
Series: Kincaid Brides #3

Delightful Romantic Comedy
Don't ask me why the Kincaid Brides is the first series I've gotten around to read from Mary Connealy. I know she's written about a million books by now, and that she's become an insanely popular author over the last few years. I can tell why that is so too. She is an excellent writer, story-teller, plot-producer, and theme-perfecter.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I think what I liked most about Over The Edge was how it not only wrapped up every detail the reader collected along the way and put it right in it's spot at the end, but that Connealy was also able to wrap up the entire three book series in the same way. She has a knack for writing quirky characters, and let me tell you, by book three there were quite a few of them!
I'm not certain if this might have something to do with the popularity of her novels, but all three of the books in the Kincaid Brides series had more kisses than I could keep track of. It was a little much at times, but I will say they were never overdone... just randomly and lightly sprinkled throughout the books.
It was very interesting to see the relationship between the two main characters (who were married but separated by strange circumstances in which the husband didn't remember a thing about having a wife) get to know each other again. It was especially satisfying when Seth began really remembering Callie and their old times together, and not just liking her because he favored the idea of her being his wife.
I was given a paperback copy of Over The Edge by Bethany House in order to read it and give my honest review for this LitFuse Publicity Blog Tour. I give the book 4 Stars.

Over The Edge, book 3 in Mary Connealy's trilogy, The Kincaid Brides was exactly what I anticipated.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
After reading book 1, Out Of Control and book 2, In Too Deep, I have been eagerly awaiting the finale to Seth Kincaid's life story. His plot line was so intriguing through the first two books and Mary did a good job of finishing up with Seth, Callie and the surprise extras - Connor and Heath.
As with the previous books, Mary's brand of humour and romance made for a light and fun read. I enjoyed the introduction of Callie, Seth's forgotten wife. She was entertaining and unpredictable. The beginning of the story was incredibly thought up - a great way to jump into the story.
The new character in the story, Heath was also a fun addition. I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't read it by explaining his role. Yet he provided a new set of eyes on the entire plot of the Kincaid brothers. I would have liked more description of Heath to round out his character. It will be interesting to see if he gets a book of his own some day.
One element that I did not enjoy as much was the ending. It was predictable and felt repetitive. I think that the elements Connealy needed to get out from the ending were there and it brought the story to a nice, complete closure. However I would have liked to see something a tad more unique. This should not deter you from choosing her book.
I would recommend this story to any fan of Christian historical fiction with a light, humorous side.

Over The Edge is a fun, entertaining, funny, book. I enjoyed every part of it. I was a little hesitant to read it becuase it is book 3 in the Kincaid Brides series and I have not read the first 2 books yet. However, what little was mentioned about the previous stories did not ruin them for me. I still do not know what happened. The little snippets, plus reading Over The Edge, makes me want to read books 1 and 2. This is the second book of Mary Connealy's stories I have read and I will continue to read her books. I like that she makes me laugh. Over The Edge is a great read for anyone looking for a lighthearted, fun, love story.

look any further. Callie is one tough cookie. She survives the Civil
War and her husband's odd disappearance and will not be broken by her
husband's, Seth's, inability to remember her. Does Seth have an excuse
for this abandonment? Well, he has excuses in the form of injuries.
Seth has some internal/mental problems that must be dealt with before
Callie can take on her threat of shooting him for leaving her. Can the
two come to some resolution? Callie's character was fun and easy to
love. She shows bravery in a time where women were not known for being
outspoken. Seth's character was slightly more complicated. He was a
little harder to get to know, but the reader will likely come to
appreciate him. The other characters fit perfectly into the novel's
plot and often bring about surprises that will keep the reader avidly
turning the pages. The plot itself was easy to follow and
character-driven. The events are fast-paced for the most part and the
author has a keen eye for detail, allowing the reader to picture the
setting. Overall, this book is recommended to adult readers.
