About Brides & Brothers

A modern retelling of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

Camille Kelly is in real danger of becoming an old maid—at least by Cherish, Montana, standards. She has all but given up on finding Mr. Right—until her broken laptop leads her to Aiden Peterson, a tall, dark, and handsome computer genius. Camille would never have believed her magic moment was right around the corner, but after two whirlwind weeks, she has a ring on her finger and has happily ever after in sight. However, she soon discovers Aiden is part of a daunting package deal . . .

As the eldest of seven brothers, Aiden has never had a problem living under the same roof as his rambunctious siblings. When he falls for Camille, he is confident she’ll fit right into his family’s already bursting home. He thought wrong. Aiden and Camille’s storybook romance comes to a screeching halt when she discovers her new living situation. Not willing to submit to a life mothering a bunch of grown men, Camille has only one option: she embarks on a campaign to improve her new brothers-in-law and marry them off. And what better candidates for wives than her own best friends?

My Review

I love the movie Seven Brides for Seven Brothers so I was anxious about this adaptation. I had no reason to worry. It remained true to the idea of the movie while being a wholly modern romantic comedy with all the right elements. It was most definitely a Christian fiction with its themes of faith and turning to God. It was light-hearted in spots and serious when it needed to be without taking itself too seriously.

I appreciated the author's attention to the details like the alphabetization of the guys names without sticking to the originals. I also caught the same detail on the first letter of the ladies names and who they ended up with. That is a detail I did not expect, but was very happy to see.

I am a person that loves a good tribute to a favorite story, but they have to be done right and this one was definitely done right. This was a perfect romantic escape.

I received an early copy from the publisher through NetGalley and this is my honest review.
