She is also the author of; Black Hills Blessing a 3-in-1 collection of sweet contemporary romances, Nosy in Nebraska, a 3-in-1 collection of cozy romantic mysteries and she’s one of the three authors contributing to Alaska Brides with her Carol Award Winning historical romance Golden Days.


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.



After reading the first two books in this series, I was anxious to read “Over the Edge,” and glad to finally read Seth’s story. Though it ended up kind of crazy, with Seth not remembering much about his life and family. He and Callie find themselves back together and thus the journey of Seth begins.


One thing I love about Mary Connealy’s books is that when I start reading them, I can’t put them down, and that is just what happened with this one. I love the characters, and especially Callie and the whit and life she brought into the lives of this family. And knowing Seth in a new and different way, the interesting situations between he and Callie brought a special meaning for this book.


Storytelling at its best is a good way to describe this book, as well as the entire series, The Kincaid Brides. I highly encourage you to grab a copy of this book, or the three books in this series for your reading enjoyment. You will not be disappointed!


A copy of this book was provided by Bethany House through CBFA for me to read and review. I was not required or expected to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.
