Over the Edge by Mary Connealy- Book Review/Blog Tour + Win a Nook Color!

About the book-

Seth Kincaid survived a cave fire, 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 even 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 hear that Seth doesn't remember her. Callie has searched, prayed, and worried. Now she's come to the Kincaid family 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 Kinkaid 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 clearly. And now that he knows what he wants, no one better stand in his way.

My thoughts- Well first of all, I really enjoyed the cover. Look at those gorgeous eyes! It's just a nice cover to look at in general and definitely fits in with the novel and how Callie feels about Seth forgetting about her. This was an interesting book. I felt like the fact that Seth had some memory loss was beaten into my head by the end and felt like it didn't need to be brought up SO much, but I really enjoyed that part of the story line. How crazy would it be to wake up and not realize you are not only married, but have a child? Seth has had a pretty crazy life and he has met his match in Callie, a fiesty woman from Texas. The novel starts off with a bang, with a stagecoach robbery in which Callie's quick thinking saves everyone aboard where she and her husband are finally reunited and we find out that he ran off, forgetting who she was. Together, they go to the Kinkaid ranch, where Callie meets Seth's brothers and their wives and Seth tries to remember Callie. Over the Edge is full of drama, humor, romance and even a touch of suspense. There are some interesting surprises that pop up for all of the Kinkaid brothers and it was fun watching them unfold. I loved the perfect ending to what I felt was a very original story.

This is the 3rd book in a series focusing on the Kincaid brothers. I have not read the first two, but Seth's story definitely makes me want to go back and learn more about him and his brothers in the other novels!
