Somebody Like You by Beth K. Vogt | RE:View

Facing the loss of her Army Medic husband, Sam, is one thing, but the thought of being a single mom coupled with the abrupt appearance of her husbands estranged, identical twin brother Stephen is a whole different ball game. One that gun-toting tomboy Haley Ames faces like she does everything else in life - head on and without any help, thank you very much!

But what happens when Stephen becomes more than just an image of her dead husband? What happens when Haley realizes she may not be "fine" like she keeps telling everyone?

I enjoyed this book so much! It's my first introduction to Beth K. Vogt's writing and has me hooked on her sweet yet honest style and genuine characters. I really appreciated the themes she presented as they relate to many women, not just fictional characters.

Haley is at once frustrating and likeable in her stubborn nature, forcing you to plead with her to open up (yes, I talk to characters in books). Stephen is solid and true, his character obvious but his faults present as well.

I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a sweet romance that tackles real-life problems in an honest yet compelling way. Beth will hold you captive to the very end as you root for God's plan to be revealed!

**The themes of military loss are present but dealt with in an extremely caring and understanding way.  I would, however, offer a gentle warning to anyone who struggles with reading in that theme.
