Over the Edge by Mary Connealy
Bethany House, 01 August 2012
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've been waiting for this book for a while now and was very happy when it arrived last week. So in between toddler day naps, visitors and fatigue I got to read the book! I found myself enjoying this third book in the Kincaid Brides series.

My favourite heroine of the three women belongs to Callie hands down! She's funny, and more than a little angry at Seth for abandoning her - although when one learns why he left I understand his point of view as well as Callie's. One of my favourite scenes is when Callie is pretending to be a damsel in distress and she's fighting the inner urge to take control and prove there's nothing damsel-ly or distressing about her.

Unless Mary brings another book in this series, it was a fitting ending for a fun, adventure and romance filled romp through Colorado with the Kincaid boys and their brides!


Jess' favourite genre is contemporary women's fiction and contemporary romance fiction. She also enjoys historical fiction with a focus on romance. She loves books set in country towns or farms with a cowboy featured in either historical or contemporary settings.

She is currently writing her first novel, a contemporary women's fiction/romance set in a small country town.
