Seth Kincaid remembers almost everything… except getting married!

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:
Mary Connealy’s conclusion to the Kincaid Brides is a fantastic one! Once again, she brings her readers to the heart of the story instantly, hooking them and holding them until the very last page, where you definitely don’t want to be because it’s a bittersweet moment, knowing it’s the end of a wonderful trilogy! Her characters are, once again, brought to life for the reader, taking them on an adventure filled with laughs, twists, and romance.

This story brings us to Callie Kincaid, wife and mama to an adorable 8 month old baby boy named Connor. She’s seeking out her husband whom she hasn’t seen in a year. She knows he’s gone and abandoned her, so she knows when she sees him, she’s gonna wanna kill him. But, nearly to the town he lives in, her stage is taken over by would be robbers. As the only one there who can shoot worth a lick, she tries to kill them off. Then she sets eyes on a would be rescuer….and nearly turns her gone on him! Why? It’s her good-for-nothing abandoning husband, that’s why!

Seth Kincaid sets out to rescue the beautiful lady from the stage, unsure of why she’s wanting to kill him though. Trouble is, he feels some sort of connection to her, but with his mind the way it is sometimes, he can’t remember. Until he sees her son Connor. Then he knows that Callie must be some sort of special, because the little boy looks just like him. When he realizes that, and then finds that people are still after money his sister-in-law’s deceased first husband stole, he’ll do anything to protect his family. Even if it means facing the past, and proving to Callie that he didn’t abandoned her….he just doesn’t remember her.

With appearances from the other Kincaids, Mary Connealy did a wonderful job at another humor-filled romantic mystery! I didn’t want to say goodbye, but sadly, I did have to. But, knowing that I have this book on the shelves right next to Rafe and Ethan’s stories, I can go back and visit these adorably lovable brothers and their wives and kids.

I definitely recommend this 5 Book worthy novel to everyone looking for that relaxing get-a-way read. You’ll laugh, cry and everything in between. Ms. Connealy’s characters are filled with faith and love, and capture your heart forever. While this is the third book in a serious, it could be read as a stand alone. But, do I recommend it as a stand alone? Not if you want the full effect of the mystery and why Seth’s just a little bit different than the other brothers! ūüôā Well done, once again, Ms. Connealy, on creating a fantastic and forever lovable novel! Can’t wait to see what you bring us next!
