Intense, gripping, powerful are just a few of the words I would use to describe this book. The reader is drawn into an emotional whirlwind of intrigue, suspense and anguish. Once I started this book, I was unable to put it down. The author does an excellent job of drawing the reader in and bringing the characters to life. Highly recommend!
This was a very enjoyable read. There were a few grammatical and spelling errors but I really enjoyed the story. In fact, I just went back and re-read it. :) Looking forward to reading more from this author.
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.
