When Grace Kingston accepts a wedding proposal through a mail-order bride agency and spends every dime she has to travel across country to be married, she has no idea her bridegroom is a fourteen-year-old boy. There's no way she can accept his offer but with winter coming on, Grace has little choice but to stay. Things go from bad to worse when she meets Jesse's older brother, Rafe. The attraction is immediate. He's surly, rude and downright pig-headed but he makes her pulse race with a single glance.

Rafe Samuels thought to teach his brother a lesson by making him take responsibility for his rash behavior but one look at Grace and his plans go up in smoke. She isn't the dowdy spinster he imagined and having her live in his house and not be able to have her is the worst kind of torment.

As fall turns to winter, Grace finds that living with the two brothers isn't as simple a thing as she once thought. Jesse still thinks marriage is in the cards, and Rafe is a devilishly handsome distraction she doesn't need. She can't decide if he hates her or wants to kiss her. And how does she avoid breaking Jess's heart when it becomes clear that the attraction between her and Rafe is mutual?

I'm so glad she continued with this series. When she ran out of Avery brothers to write about, I thought the series was over. I'm glad to be wrong. I hope this series will continue!

I was a little skeptical about continuing the series after the Avery brothers were married, but wow am I glad I did! Rafe was such a lovable wounded soul. Grace and Rafe were perfect for each other, even if they did give Jesse a little too much power. Who wouldn't given the circumstances? Looking forward to reading the Willow Creek Christmas!

This is the final hit of the series! Well, I finished my last book in this series and I’m sad. Wah! I really, really, loved this entire series. In this story, the heroine (Grace) irritated me somewhat because she was a little too honorable in her original intentions to marry Jesse, the younger brother. I kept wanting her to just be blunt and tell him the truth and then openly go after the older brother, Rafe. And I also got impatient with Rafe in his own honorable way of staying away from Grace for the sake of Jesse’s feelings. A lot of angst could have been avoided if they had just been above-board with their feelings. But it is the nature of good writing and good stories to be able to get the reader so involved that they have feelings about the characters like I did. I heartily recommend this entire series.

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.  **Sexual content

Good story and characters. Sadly the book is riddled with serious grammatical errors and problems with punctuation. "She put her ridicule on the counter", rather than reticule. "He had went", not gone. She was "adapt", not adept. Many problems with homonyms: to/too, peek/peak, road/rode, bear/bear, elude/allude. The author is clueless about the possessive case. She seems to think every plural word needs an apostrophe. What could have been a wonderful read became an annoyance. Someone....either the author or editor...should be ashamed of this grammatic disaster.

I've been reading this series out of sequence and loved this book as much as the others! Characters are well developed and likable and there's a good story to set up the romance. I love that Rafe and Grace save each other. Great read for a few days off as I didn't want to put it down!

I love all of Ms. Graison's books. But this one was even better than the rest. I loved the story line and how it blended into her previous books. I recommend you read the entire series...

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 :-) Melissa Porter

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.
