Over the Edge by Mary Connealy is the third book in the series The Kincaid Brides. The story takes place in the late 1800s on a ranch in the hills of Colorado.
“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?” (Bethany House)
This unique story’s theme is tied around the word LOST ~ Callie’s lost husband, Seth’s lost memory, and even lost diamonds. Though the story focuses on Seth and Callie’s relationship there is bit of adventure as Jasper seeks to take back the diamonds that were stolen from him.
I really enjoyed the main characters in this book. Seth is a lovable guy that I immediately felt bad for and grew excited with every memory he got back. Callie was a tough girl on the exterior, but deep down she was just scared due to her wounded heart.
I personally have not read any of the the other books in this particular series, but the author did a fabulous job of filling the reader in on some of the things that happened in the other two books. I would like to know more about the other characters, but I’m sure they were develop more fully in the first two books. Definitely a fun read, but if you get a chance read the first two books first, so you get the complete story with all the little details.
