"Over the Edge" by Mary Connealy book review.

Another gorgeous story by Mrs. Connealy. A lovely romance, laced with suspense and humor, "Over the Edge" is a story that you MUST read.

Over the EdgeI admit, I haven't read the first two books, but when I had the chance to review this book, I jumped at it.

The story starts full of suspense, and then eases its way towards good humor and fun. It's like a see-saw, going back and forth between giggles and nail-biting.

I admired and adored Callie and Seth,with their constant banter and overall craziness. Callie's lines were witty and reminded me a bit of Sarah from "A Lady Like Sarah". Seth's thoughts and dialogue made me laugh, the way he portrayed insanity and fun without even having to say something crazy.
The background characters had me laughing too. I fell in love with each one of them.

The villains were perfect, in a villain sort of way. I felt for them, and wanted them to come out without too much loss in the end, but, at the same time, I didn't exactly love them. I could feel the main villain's . . . what would you call it? . . . pain? The way he felt torn between good and evil, the way he wanted two things that were at strife with each other. In other words, the villain is the perfect example to all writers of how a villain should be.

The only thing I found annoying was the errors. As if the editor had forgotten to check it over. There was a missing quotation mark at the end of a dialogue, at one point the spacing needed to show the start of a new scene was missing, and once Callie's name was accidentally spelled C-a-s-s-i-e. There was not a single "Cassie" in the book.

Overall, a beautiful story wonderfully crafted by an amazing author! I highly recommend this book to all Christian Romance lovers!

  1. Hey Katelyn!

    I was just wondering if you'd be willing to host a stop on my blog tour this fall for my YA Christian fiction novel, "Purple Moon". If so, would you mind sending me an email at christiswrite (at) gmail (dot) com? Thanks!

    God bless,
