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.

Seems as though I've waited forever for this book, and well it was worth the wait! I found myself laughing so hard in the beginning that my husband had to stop what he was doing just so I would read out loud. I fell hard for all the characters, but I believe Jesse stole my heart. He answered an add for a mail order bride when what he really needed was a mother. This book warmed my heart and is my favorite of all the Willow Creek Books. 6 stars Ms. Garrison! And I know this was a stands alone book, but please give Jesse and Alex a chance, they need their own book and soon!

I enjoyed more about this story than I disliked, but it wasn't great. The characters were likeable and the plot was relatively good, but the writing could have been better. There were some editing issues that needed fixing. There was plenty of telling when I'd rather be shown, and little of the phrasing was unique...some of it was actually awkward. That said, there were some well-written scenes/parts, too.

Many of the characters' thoughts and motivations were repetitive. That could have been trimmed. I skimmed in places, thinking,'Yeah. I got this already. Move on.' Some of their actions and reactions also didn't ring true. I would have liked to see Jesse held more accountable for lying to Grace and having her give up all she did to move out there for a teen she couldn't marry. He got off a little too easy, if you ask me.

And even though marriages back then were often for convenience, Grace's willingness to take nearly any man as her husband, especially after she developed strong feelings for Rafe, seemed odd. I would have liked to see more emotion. As it was, it felt like, 'Oh, no problem. I'll just marry someone else.' The author may not have seen her that way, but it's how she came across on the page.

This is not a horrible book by any means. It's readable--parts of it are quite enjoyable--but it could have been better. 3 1/2 stars.

Well after reading the four brothers of Willow Creek and enjoyed every one of them, I read His Brothers Wife. It was very good as well! I was happy to read several of the brothers taking part in helping Rafe return some stolen cattle from the rustler who lived next door. The mail-order bride that fourteen year old Jesse sent off for was quite a surprise. She made a good mother for him. But she made a better wife for older brother Rafe. Eventually. I forgot to mention that the four brothers wives also took part in the story, by helping Grace and being very friendly to her. The story has a lot more depth to it than what I'm giving it in this review, so be sure and read it for yourself and find out.what a good story it is!

I read this book about two years ago and just now read it again in a box of books called Courting the West. It was an excellent book the first time I read it and again this time. In fact, I believe I got more out of it since reading more Mail Order Brides in the last year. The twist in this book was that the younger brother of 14 actually wrote for a bride using his older brother as the role model. Jesse just wanted someone to cook, clean and fix his clothes; he didn't totally understand the concept of wife itself. The older brother, Rafe, was the one the bride, Grace, actually fell in love with. It is a cute story, has some sensual content and I enjoyed it. Thanks to Ms. Graison, I added another book to my favorites list.

The basic concept of this plot may seem far fetched but, set in the harsh realities facing women in the mid 1800's added to the harsh realities facing early settlers of the West, this is quite plausible and is an interesting spin away from the predictable. Both brothers are drawn deeply. They have suffered common and individual struggles and we grow to care more and more about them as the story progresses. Graison has more difficulty giving her main women characters believable difficult situations. With some exceptions, they seem motivated by more shallow struggles which are self involved. But, the story holds the reader's interest and we understand and care a great deal about all of them at the end. I like that some issues weren't obvious and were revealed toward. Predictable is not very interesting. The author pulled the reader along. Nice job.
