Over the Edge by Mary Connealy

Seth Kincaid remembers almost everything… except getting married!

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.

Mary Connealy writes fun and lively “romantic comedy with cowboys” for the inspirational market. She is the author of the successful Lassoed in Texas, Montana Marriages, and Sophie’s Daughters series, and her novel Calico Canyon was nominated for a Christy Award. She lives on a ranch in eastern Nebraska with her husband, Ivan, and has four grown daughters.

The Kincaid Brides series by Mary Connealy is the story of three irresistibly handsome cowboys and their somewhat unconventional brides. This third and final book, Over the Edge, features the youngest brother Seth and the wife he has all but forgotten in more ways than one.

I love this entire series, every single page. I loved the humor, the danger kept me guessing what would happen next, and the family loyalty was inspirational. My favorite character in this final book is Seth's wife Callie, who was abandoned and could understandably be looking for revenge, but she is one spunky lady! If she needs or wants something done, she does not back down, no matter what the cost.  Seth was the target of a gamut of her emotions, once she able to finally track him down.

Over the Edge brought everything together in the series ... the dynamics between the three brothers, the memories from their childhood, and how they were affected by the actions of their parents. There is another surprise in this book, as a new family member was introduced. My only regret is knowing that this is the final book, as it would be fun to find out what happens next in the extended family.

In this series, Mary Connealy has introduced us to a host of interesting characters, handsome cowboys and their brides, and wrapped it up in a wholesome and humorous story.  I highly recommend all three books, you won't want to miss any part of the story.
