SOMEBODY LIKE YOU
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.
Oh my goodness, but I loved this book! There is such depth and dimension to the story I don't know where to start my review.
Loved both Haley and Stephen. Realistically flawed -- both a product of their upbringing. I really like how Vogt explored the impact of that and how it helped carve out their identities. I could understand so clearly why they each reacted the way they did. That brought such depth to their characters and created a solid platform for the romance.
Loved Haley's snarky wit, Stephen's thoughtful steadfastness. How opposite they were and yet each met a deeper need in the other. Theirs isn't an easy love story which makes the happily ever after ending super happily ever after, if you know what I mean. :-)
This is my first Vogt book, but it certainly won't be my last. She'll be on the top of my TBR pile from now on.
