Out of Control

Out of Control
The Kincaid Brides Book 1
Mary Connealy

Julia is interested in fossils, dinosaurs and the caves around her home. She became fascinated with these things on her walks to get out of the house and away from her father. She becomes trapped in a cave and Rafe rescues her and takes her home. What follows is a hilarious account of Julia's family, Rafe's family and the trials they've endured to get where they are at.

I really enjoyed this story. The plot was mildly funny, sad, and intriguing. It swept me along as it wove between the two families.  I think my only complaint would have been the stubbornness of the main characters. I became frustrated with them several times. How in the world could anyone tolerate someone this annoying and pig headed? In fact, Julia was rather abrasive for large parts of the book. I'm hoping that the next books have less of them and more of the brothers and Audra.
The story was well told and held my attention the entire time (even with the annoying Julia). Definitely another author to add to my list of favorites. And I'll be checking out the next books in the series.

I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
