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.

My Review:
As with most of author Mary Connealy's books; I was captivated from the first chapter.  I have read the second book in this series ~ In Too Deep, and since reading that great book have been wondering about Seth's history.  Finally getting to really know more about Seth, and what happened to him; made this story more intriguing to me personally.  I enjoy Mary Connealy's writing style and her wonderful stories of characters in the Wild West.  I can say that Over the Edge did not disappoint, but was another great book by this amazing author.
The main characters were likeable and funny at times.  I loved being reaquainted with some of my favorite characters from the other book(s) in this series.  The descriptions of the surroundings really made it easy for me to imagine the settings that the characters were in.  Well-written and fast-paced, easy to read and hard to put down; overall another great book I highly recommend!
