A Must Read!

Out of Control by Mary Connealy - The Kincaid Brides Book 1

Julia Gilliland is a young lady that loves geology and loves to explore caves in search of fossils.  Exploring gives her a chance to get out of the house and away from her father.  She feels at peace with herself and a closeness to God when she is exploring.   She is determined to find proof that there is a God.  All she has to do is find the fossils to prove the Great Flood of Noah's Day.   If she does this her father surely will see her as a special and she will earn his love.  But one day as she is exploring, a mysterious intruder steals the rope she uses to climb out of the cave.

Rafe Kincaid is a man that seems to be in control of everything.  His ranch, his brothers, his life.  But Rafe is struggling with a painful past.  A time when he was out of control and was not the man he should of been for his brothers.  He is determined never to feel that way again.  So he stays away from the one place on his family's ranch that brings back the painful memories...the cave.  One night he decides to go back to the cave, one last time, in hopes to find peace with the place that ruined his and his brother's lives when they were young boys.  A women screaming was the last thing he expected to hear.  He must save her.  Then with a kiss lives are changed.

I had never read any of Mary Connealy's books before I read Out of Control and I will assure you that this may of been my first read of hers but it most definitely won't be my last.  

This book has it all.  Love, humor, suspense, inspiration, and mystery.  It had me on the edge of my seat in suspense, laughing out loud at the banter between Rafe and Julia, and reflecting on the greatness of God and how he is always present.  From the highest mountain top to the lowest dwellings. God is there.  In the good times of our life and in the bad times.  God is there.   When we are in control and when we are out of control.  God is there.

I give this book 5 stars!!

Thanks you Bethany House Publishers for providing me with this amazing book to review in exchange for my honest review!
