Since receiving the news of her husband’s death, Haley
has only been able to get through one day and one task at a time. First, she
discovered that she is pregnant, then she moved out of their apartment into a
house and got a job. Although she has been in the house for a month, she is too
weary to even finish unpacking the boxes. With Haley shouldering all of the
responsibility now, she feels overwhelmed. On top of working and taking care of
the house, she has childbirth classes as she prepares for the upcoming labor
and delivery, and the homeowner’s association is on her back to make the
repairs to her dilapidated house. Missing her husband, she prays to be able to
see her husband’s face one more time, but Haley never expects to see it on his
twin brother, a sibling she knew nothing about. He showed up suddenly, without
warning, and Haley thought it was her husband and found it hard to believe that
Sam never told her about Stephen.
Stephen and Haley have a tumultuous relationship and
struggle against the underlying feelings that develop between them due to Haley
being Sam’s widow and Stephen being his twin. Will the ghost of Sam keep them
from exploring their love for each other and having a future together?
An inspirational story, SOMEBODY LIKE YOU, the latest
book by author Beth K. Vogt, is a poignant, emotion-packed, contemporary
romance that is sure to touch your heart. Haley is a very independent woman.
With three older brothers, she learned early in life to be self-sufficient and
stand up for herself. She is used to doing things on her own, something Sam was
only too willing to let her do since he was often off on deployment. Meanwhile,
Stephen is more steadfast and tries to be there for Haley whenever she needs
him. As they spend time together, Haley begins to see how different the
brothers really are despite being identical twins. Throughout the story, both
Stephen and Haley looked to God for answers to their dilemmas.
Estrangement, deployment, death, grief, childbirth,
God, forgiveness, healing, second chances, realistic characters, a compelling
plot and love combine to give readers a story they will not soon forget.
Beautifully written, this story will bring you to tears as you discover once
more how mysteriously God sometimes works. I loved this story and cannot wait
to see what Ms. Vogt comes up with next. Definitely a keeper!
