Book Review on Somebody Like You

Not a recipe today, but a book review!

Somebody Like You
Beth K. Vogt
(Howard Books)
ISBN: 978-1476737584
May 2013/368 pages/$14.99

Can a young widow find love again with her husband’s reflection?
Haley’s three-year marriage to Sam, an army medic, ends tragically when he’s killed in Afghanistan. Her attempts to create a new life for herself are ambushed when she arrives home one evening—and finds her husband waiting for her. Did the military make an unimaginable mistake when they told her Sam was killed?

Too late to make things right with his estranged twin brother, Stephen discovers Sam never told Haley about him. As Haley and Stephen navigate their fragile relation­ship, they are inexorably drawn to each other. How can they honor the memory of a man whose death brought them together—and whose ghost could drive them apart.

Somebody Like You is a beautifully rendered, affecting novel, reminding us that while we can’t change the past, we have the choice to change the future and start anew.

My thoughts on this book:

Beth Vogt has done it again.  She once again took a subject that is dear to many of us and made the characters come alive. The story line was so intriguing that I could not put this book down!    Stephen and Haley have to come to gripes with their grief in their own way.  Beth just happens to have Stephen be a mirror twin to Haley's husband and this adds an extra twist to the story.  This is a must read for this summer --it is a Christian Fiction book.

She lives in Colorado with her husband and their 10-year-old "caboose kiddo." She and her husband enjoy any time their adult children come by for game nights, BBQs or just to hang out.
