"over the edge" by mary connealy

About the book (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?

My take: Over the Edge picks up a few months after the events in book two, In Too Deep. Right off the bat, readers are introduced to Seth's wife Callie ... and boy is she spunky! I liked her immediately and thought she made a good match for Seth. While I enjoyed the interactions between Seth and Callie, some parts of the book (especially whenever they talked about or went inside the cave) didn't hold my attention well. I enjoyed the book, but not as much as I liked In Too Deep.

When I reviewed In Too Deep a few months ago, I cautioned readers to read book one, Out of Control, first. I hadn't, and I was lost for the first quarter of the book. In Over the Edge, Connealy does a much better job of catching readers up, and I think someone could jump into the series at Over the Edge with little difficulty.

Over the Edge is a fitting conclusion to Connealy's Kincaid Brides series ... unless it isn't the end? While the book mainly deals with Seth and Callie's marriage and wraps up the threads from the first two books, it also introduces a fourth Kincaid brother—so perhaps Connealy will treat us to a story about him next. Regardless, we'll probably at least hear about the Kincaids again, as a book about Callie's brother Luke will release next year. 3.5 stars.
