Somebody Like You

Somebody Like You
About The BookCan 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.

About The Author:  Novelist Beth K. Vogt is a nonfiction author and editor who said she'd never write fiction. She's the wife of an Air Force physician (now in solo practice) who said she'd never marry a doctor -- or anyone in the military. She's a mom of four who said she'd never have kids. She's discovered that God's best often waits behind the doors marked "Never." Beth writes inspirational contemporary romance because she believes there's more to the happily ever after than the fairy tales tell us. 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.

My Thoughts About The Book:  I read and reviewed Beth Vogt’s first two novels and liked them very much. Somebody Like You is her best so far in my opinion.  It is a contemporary romance that deals with some touchy subjects.  Beth Vogt is great at character development and from the moment Haley opens her front door to see the reflection of her dead husband staring her in the face you will be hooked.  Vogt's characters may be fictional but they are so real that you feel as if you are a part of the action taking place.  I could not put the book down.   Be sure to have some Kleenex handy.  If you like romance, then definitely pick this one up. But if you are looking for a well-written novel that will make you think, laugh and cry, then Somebody Like You is a book I recommend!  It is an amazing story.
