Somebody Like You by Beth K. Vogt (My Review)
|Somebody Like You|
by Beth K. Vogt
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 just proves what a knack Beth Vogt has for penning a perfect romance centered around imperfect people. Haley Ames and her estranged brother-in-law, Stephen are both trying to cope with the death of husband and brother, Sam. Neither expects to find solace with each other but God has a different plan.
As far as contemporary romances go, I can honestly go weeks without reading them, but when it comes to Vogt's modern day love stories they go on my reading list before the cover blurbs and artwork are posted on Amazon. They are simply put engaging and unique tales that pull at the heart strings. Somebody Like You continues the trend. With characters like Haley, the tomboy and Stephen, the dependable softie looking for some answers about his deceased brother, both go from cautious strangers who share nothing but a bond with Sam to so much more by the time the last page is turned. The connection between the characters and myself as a reader was there from the first page. The ability to connect with characters is a must for this reader and Somebody Like You definitely does that.
If you haven't had the chance to enjoy her Christian centered romances, I highly recommend them all. The best part is that each one is such a page turner. Somebody Like You is going down as a summer must-have book and probably one of my favorite contemporary stories of the year!
