About the Book:
Seth Kincaid remembers almost everything...except getting married!
Seth Kincaid survived a fire in a cave, but he's never been thesame. He was always a reckless youth, but now he's goneover 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 theKincaid 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.
About the Author:
Mary Connealy writes fun and lively "romantic comedy with cowboys" for theinspirational market. She isthe author of the successfulLassoed in Texas, Montana Marriages, and Sophie's Daughters series, and her novel Calico Canyon was nominated for a Christy Award. She lives on a ranch in eastern Nebraska with her husband, Ivan, and has four grown daughters.
This is the third "Brides" book for the Kincaid brothers but another brother appeared so perhaps another book? I did not have the opportunity to read the first two and it might have helped me a bit with the enjoyment of this one - there were many references to what came before and I felt a bit lost without the complete backstory.
Nonetheless - Callie Kincaid is on the stagecoach with her young son when they are attacked by bandits. She is a crack shot and manages to hold them off long enough for the Parson and his wife to escape with her son to run to Colorado City to get help. She is coming to town to find her brothers in law and her no account husband. He ran off one day never to return. He does not even know he has a son.
Well, she finds the rat - when he comes to her aid. She shoots at him but she is so badly injured she misses. OK - she misses intentionally. She wants to find out why he ran off but she comes to find out he doesn't even remember her! He does rush her in to the town doctor to get her injuries taken care of and so starts the slow reconciliation of Callie and Seth.
It was a very sweet tale with a strong - sometimes overbearing - female protagonist. The love story between Callie and Seth plays out within a plot point that has carried over from the previous two books about a very bad man looking for a fortune that was stolen from him by the former husband (now dead) of one of the Kincaid boys' wives. There is also a subplot about a new brother and what a rat of a man the Kincaid father turned out to be.
It all ties up very nicely and it was a pleasant way to spend a few hours. The characters were simple, stayed in their defined roles and the story was enjoyable. A lovely, light read.
