Book two picks up on the heals of book one. Ethan's older brother Rafe is now married to Julia. Audra does not want to be a burden now that Julia is married and is thinking about heading back east to her uncaring father. Rafe will have none of that and come up with the idea that Ethan should marry her so she can be the house keeper at the Kincaid ranch that Ethan is now taking over. Before either of them have a chance to think they are wed. Heading back to the Kincaid ranch with crazy Seth in tow how will these two settle into married life. Will they find love after all?
Mary Connealy has done it again! She is one of my favorite authors and she does not disappoint in this new book.
What I liked: Everything! I really liked both Ethan and Audra in the first book maybe even more then Rafe and Julia. I could not wait to read their story. I love how the characters interact in this book. The humor had be laughing through out. I also love how Ethan and Audra start to care for each other and realize how much they need each other.
What I did not like: Really not much. The only part of the story I was not really into was the head bad guy. It really seemed like it did not fit with this story. I am guessing we will hear more from him in the 3rd book. I just did not feel his chapters added anything to the main plot of the story.
Over all I loved this book. I love how this author intertwines romance, comedy and suspense(bad guys) and creates characters you fall in love with. I could not put it down and wanted to cry when it was over. I can't wait for book three which will finally tell Seth's story and I can't wait to meet Callie! August can't come soon enough. This is a must read for all historical fiction lovers!
I couldn't wait to read this one when I found out Book 2 of the Kincaid Bride series was out by Mary Connealy, In Too Deep. This time the story picks up right where Book 1 left off. The Kincaid brothers have just narrowly escaped death after a tracker was sent to locate Wendell Gillilan who has stolen some money from Jasper Henry. Unfortunately Wendell died before revealing the whereabouts of what he stole and where he hid it, but the only clue was it's deep, too deep for anyone to find.
Now that the tracker is in jail, Jasper Henry isn't about to give up. He's sent someone to find out where his money is and now he knows that Audra Gilliland is still alive with two children and believes she alone knows where it is. Only now she has gotten married to Ethan Kincaid to help protect her on his ranch and Ethan will soon discover that even though this was a marriage of convenience, he soon grows to love Audra and the children as his own and isn't about to let anything come between them.
Audra isn't too sure that marriage was a grand idea but the prospect of keeping her two daughters safe was worth saying, "I Do!" for. However when an unexpected fire comes to the Kincaid ranch and leaves Ethan badly burned, the men come looking for Audra and the children. Will she find the strength she believes she is lacking to save her children and Ethan, or will the curse of her late husband consume her once and for all?
I received In Too Deep compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review and LOVED it! I missed hanging out with the Kincaid brothers and love how seamlessly Mary transitioned between both books so we feel like we picked up right where we left off. I applaud Audra's courage in the face of adversity and where she finds the strength to weather any storm that comes between her and the Kincaid family! She finds strength in God when she needs it the most! Well worthy of 5 out of 5 stars and can't wait to see where the conclusion of this story will leave. Hurry back Kincaid family!
Mary Connealy does it again with heart-warming, non-stop romantic comedy adventure. As with all her books, In Too Deep is exciting, unpredictable, romantic and just plain fun.
Ethan and Audra get their turn at being married, and they do it very well, thank you. Audra is sweet and meek, but she's trying to turn over a new leaf and grow herself a backbone. She wants to believe she is brave and fierce and able to take care of herself and her kids, and she isn't going to let any husband get the best of her again. But Ethan is protective and kind and _ pretty clueless. He was emotionally scarred by the terrible accident he and his brothers were in as kids in the dangerous cave near their home. But by the end of the book, Ethan has grown and realized some things, not least of which is that it's really nice having a pretty woman around, especially when she's his wife.
There are lots of madcap adventures, bad guys and unexpected moments in this book, just like all Mary's books. And we get a glimpse of the third brother's story, loco Seth, who might not be quite as loco as we thought. Although, then again, he's pretty crazy.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to reading about Seth in the third book of the series, and revisiting the wonderful, expanding Kincaid family.
