Book Review: Out of Control

Out Of Control by Mary Connealy is Book 1 in The Kincaid Brides series from Bethany House. It is a Christian romance set in Colorado territory in 1866.

Rafe Kincaid had returned to the cavern one more time trying to overcome his fears. Going there caused him to relive the terrible day of the accident but instead of hearing the cries of his brother Seth he heard a woman screaming. Rafe facing his fears head on manages to get the woman, Julia Gilliland, to safety.

Rafe proceeded to try to find out more about this upset woman. Julia claimed she was the daughter of the owner of the general store in Rawhide, however Rafe knew the owner. He also knew he did not have a daughter named Julia.

As late as it was getting Rafe managed to convince Julia that she would be comfortable at the ranch until morning light, promising he would take her home, if they could find home. When they arrived at the ranch Ethan met them on the front porch, which totally surprised Rafe, since this was his first time home since the accident.

After Julia had calmed down her interest was directed towards the cavern. She was determined that yes she had to get home, her family would be worried but her main concern was her return trip to the cavern. She had found fossils there like she had read about in her books, but the problem was there was also something else there. It was a man who had scared her to death, so she had to figure out a way to get Rafe to help her.

Does Rafe and Julia ever work out their differences? Does Julia ever realize the truth about her Dad? Does Rafe and Ethan come to terms about the accident? And who is the crazy man in the cavern? Find the answers to these questions and a lot more in this book.

This was a good book but I found it a little hard to follow at times. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys romance with a little twist or books set in the west.

If you click here it will take you to Bethany House.  There is more information on the book and excerpts from it.

I received this book free from Bethany House a division of Baker Publishing Group as part of their Blogger Review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

until next time... nel
