Review by: Rebecca Byrd on June 12, 2013 :
Such a great read. And quick too. I read this book in an ePub format on my iPad and was done in almost 6 hours. The writing of the characters in my opinion were very well written. The story really grabs you attention within the first 10 pages. The story line between grace, Jesse and rate is very ironic. Girl sells everything she has to move far away on agreement to marry a man she has never met. In actually she did that to marry a boy that is all of fourteen years old. Jesse didn't even describe himself in the communication but gave the description of his brother Rafe. Which by the description given by Lily Graison is a major hunk! Of coarse the story unfold into a very promising read and especially for the 3.99 price tag. Of coarse aim a sucker for always wanting things to go a specific way, but, I'm not the autos. Yet, she did it for me again. So I do reccomems this book to anyone wanting to read it. Also, on a side note. All should read "the Calling". Trust me. I love this author and her writing abilities!!'

A delightful and entertaining read. :-)
I started the book and stayed up late into the night. I was not wanting to put it down. I needed to know what happened. Sadly I had to. But as soon as I was off work the next day I picked it back up. I did not put it back down until I finished the book.

Lily will pull you into this story right from the start. She will keep you on the edge, even at the end she does not really let you go. She left room for more. And I love more. Which I am hoping is true and I just hope it will be soon.

Rafe is stubborn and did not want to get hurt again. He needed to keep his distance.
Grace was desperate and at times made rash decisions. This was going to be an adventure for her.

I love the stubborn ones. They always fall the hardest. This one did not let me down there.

Thanks Lily for another great read :-)

Review by: Sarah L on June 02, 2013 :
Grace Kingston sells everything she owns and embarks on a journey to a new land where she agrees to be a mail-order bride. Upon arrival in Willow Creek, she cannot fathom why everyone appears to be laughing behind her back. The joke is on her however when she learns that her betrothed is a 14-year old boy.

The love triangle between Grace, Rafe and Jesse (the 14-year old) was definitely unique. Despite the age difference, Jesse was determined to see this marriage through, if only to spite Rafe. Ms. Graison did an excellent job of developing all of the characters but I greatly enjoyed Grace’s character. She was very strong and independent. Leaving everything she knew behind, including her way of life, she embraced the challenges in Willow Creek and showed what a remarkable woman she really was.

The side story involving Jesse and Rafe was resolved too easily in my opinion. Great importance was placed on the conflict throughout the story but I felt in the end it was glossed over and a bit too neat and tidy.

Even though His Brother’s Wife is set in Willow Creek, this story is considered a standalone novel. Actually, Ms. Graison’s entire Willow Creek series is on my tablet waiting for its turn on my to be read pile but I can see after how much I enjoyed this one, they will be jumping ahead in line.

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

His Brother’s Wife by Lily Graison
Willow Creek Series Book 5
Rafe Samuels finds out his brother has ordered a mail-order bride. The problem? Jesse is only fourteen and his reasoning for a wife is that more of a young boys thinking than a mans. And the woman that arrives is definitely a beauty for a man, not a boy. Rafe has to remind himself that he has a past that shows love isn’t meant for his life and that this is suppose to be his brother’s future wife.

Grace Kingston left Boston to marry the man she felt she knew through his letters. Only it wasn’t the handsome dark haired man described in the letter that was to be her groom, it was his younger, his much to young, brother. Grace walks the tightrope of not hurting Jesse, while trying to keep herself from falling for his handsome brother, Rafe. She’s not much of an acrobat.

The fifth book in the Willow Creek Series takes you back to revisit some friends from the past, like the Willow Creek townspeople and the Avery brothers and their families. The reader is introduced to some new folks as well, both good and bad. The personalities of the characters and their emotions were well written. A young boy trying to be a man after a traumatic experience, a brother returning home after fleeing ten years earlier and a city girl looking for a new adventure and finding more than she bargained for, all come together in His Brother’s Wife.
