Overview

Bestselling Author Mary Connealy Delivers Her Trademark Historical Romantic Comedy

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.

    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.

    Nobody does crazy like Mary Connealy. Seriously.

    After meeting Seth Kincaid in the previous two “Kincaid Brides” books I wondered if I could buy into him as a hero. Usually I cheer for the steady, responsible, gainfully-employed types. I can’t think of any off-his-rocker hero that has won my heart in the past. Especially one who abandoned his wife and child. Redeeming such a character would take uncommon skill.

    Mary Connealy… you got skills.

    From the first page in Seth’s POV I was sold. Seth hears threats blazing from an over-turned stagecoach. His thoughts:

    “A woman.
    A woman who knew his name.
    A woman who knew his name and wanted to kill him.
    He’d never had much luck with women.”

    No question, the strength of this story is being able to sympathize with Seth. I felt like I understood him, even when he didn’t understand himself. I also understood why Callie married him, nightmares and all.

    This book is funny, exciting and romantic. If you like tough heroines and reckless but kind-hearted heroes, you need to find yourself a copy of Over the Edge.

    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

    How can you completely forget that you're married? Or that you h

    How can you completely forget that you're married? Or that you have a son? Well that's exactly what is happening to Seth Kincaid, the youngest of the Kincaid brothers who suddenly finds himself at the scene of a stagecoach robbery. Only Seth is the one being shot at. When more men arrive from Colorado City with the sheriff, the learn that the only occupant remaining in the stagecoach is a woman, named Callie who was defending the coach against the robbers who already shot both the driver and his partner.

    When Seth finds out the woman in the coach is his long-forgotten wife Callie, he immediately picks up right where he left off, carrying for her injuries and learning he has a son, Connor that was rescued by the parson when he left to go find help during the robbery. Now Callie is hailed as a hero by the town for saving the lives of the men from the stage coach but she only wants answers to why Seth left her and never came back. But Seth has been having many lapses in memory and that is why he is living on the land provided to him by the remaining Kincaid brothers, Rafe and Ethan in his own cabin. This way they can watch over him but still allow him to live an independent life.
    Only what will they say when they learn that Seth has a family that has come calling for him?

    In the Kincaid Bride Series by Mary Connealy, Over The Edge is the third novel that digs deeper into the lives of each of the Kincaid brothers with this one detailing Seth's life a little more. The brothers lives and those of their families still remain at stake when a man is still looking for them, Henry Jasper Duff who he believes has his money that was stolen by Wendell Gilliland. Now Jasper has had to live on the run hiding with his wife Bea, from those that he owes a great deal of money to from his opium trades. No matter how much Bea tries to convince him to forget the money, Jasper is just bidding his time until he can corner the brothers and get back what he believes belongs to him.

    I received Over The Edge compliments of Bethany House Publishers and Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review. Having read the previous two in this series, Out of Control and In Too Deep, I couldn't wait to read this one to get to know Seth Kincaid more. Having experiences PTSD from the Civil War, Seth at times has the mind of a much younger man who sees things in a much simpler format, being more spontaneous in his actions and a bit impulsive at times without thinking things through. He also suffers from horrible nightmares which Callie still remembers that border more on night terrors. I couldn't wait to see where the money has been hidden or if there is a stash of money since it has been the conflict that runs through the other two novels in the series and keeps the family's constantly looking over their shoulders for the next threat on their lives. I can easily rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and if you truly love a great Christian Western Romance with a touch of suspense added, then you will LOVE this series.

    When I picked up this book, I was pretty sure it would be another sappy Christian Western romance, and I figured I would have to struggle through it. I can tell you that I was wrong about that point. The action drew me in from the beginning, and I was rather intrigued by the story. I only wished that the action had not been so sporadic. But it was not a sappy love story.

    I loved Seth and Callie. They made the reading absolutely worthwhile. In fact, I would have loved to read more about their relationship. I really did not care much for the other characters. And sometimes the story lagged a little bit. But the exchanges between Seth and Callie were realistic and fun. I found myself rooting for Seth but fully supporting Callie.

    I wish there had been more Christian influence in this novel. This has become a growing trend for God to almost take a back seat in Christian books. I don't like the other extreme of forcing Christ into the story, but I only saw the characters pray a few times, and there was no emphasis on living by Biblical principles.

    In spite of everything, it's a nice, light, clean read that is suitable for all ages. You will love Callie's spunk, and your heart will break for Seth. I can mostly recommend this book to lovers of clean Western romances.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    Very good book.

    This book, the last in the Kincaid Brides Series, is just as good as the first two. Along with humor, the plot contains adventure, mystery, family relationships, overcoming past experiences and love. I highly recommend this book!

    Good Series

    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.

    Book 3 in a series. This is my favorite in the series, Seth is a great character! Who doesn't love a crazy guy who can't remember you and wants to howl at the moon!? Seriously, who? This book is great fun, romantic and exciting. And being a Christian book, you see how God grabs ahold of Seth's heart, and he becomes only *slightly less crazy! Loved it , really!

    Highly recommended. another great book by Mary Connealy

    Since receiving the letter from Callie, his wife that he didn't remember having, Seth Kincaid or one of his brothers had been riding to meet every stagecoach coming to town because she hadn't put in the letter when she would arrive.




    Little did he know that the 'man' fighting off robbers in an overturned stagecoach was his wife. When Callie saw Seth she wanted to kill him as much as she wanted to kill the robbers. After all he took off and left her without a word. Luckily some help came and they managed to fight off the thieves then Seth took Callie to the doctor as she had many wounds from fragments of the stagecoach. She was a fighter this one!




    Once back in town Seth meets up with some of the other passengers and discovers Cassie has a baby boy, his baby boy, another thing he didn't remember. After Callie was treated by the doctor and rested overnight, Seth gets another surprise for himself, he discovers that he has a half-brother, and he is none to pleased about that. Cassie steps in and insists Heath go 'home' with them. Needless to say this is not a pleasant ride, a winter storm is about to hit, an injured wife who seems to despise him and an unwanted brother.




    Things don't go any smoother once they reach the Kincaid property, they soon find that they are being watched and followed you might say by the thief that is looking for the diamonds that Julia's father, Audra's first husband, had stolen from him.




    Why did Cassie look him up if she hated him so and why did Heath look the Kincaid brothers up if he wanted nothing to do with them? Was it just to cause turmoil for the Kincaids? What will happen when Jasper actually catches up with them?




    Mary continues to keep the reader interested enough that it's almost impossible to put the book down. This was a very intriguing series and when she talks about the caves you almost feel like you are right down in there with the characters. If you are claustrophobic I would think you'd be having a hard time breathing, sometimes I was just about there.




    A great series that I would highly recommend.

    I devoured it!

    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.

    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.

    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.
