    Book Somebody Like YouAuthor Beth K VogtPublication Date May 13, 2014Type Stand AloneGenre Christian RomanceRating 4 out of 5 StarsComplimentary Copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.ReviewWhen I first requested this book from Net Galley, I had no idea it was a Christian Romance until I started reading a few pages and realized that between God and prayer being mentioned I was stuck reading this I didn t give up though I trudged on and how surprised I was when I got so engrossed in the book that I couldn t put it down.I wanted to know what was going to happen next but yes, I did some eye rolling with the mention of faith and religion Don t get me wrong, I m a believer but I don t do the preaching and pushing faith in a person s face This book wasn t like that but maybe 2 instances where I didn t feel a bit overwhelmed with the mentions of faith But as a wise woman once told me Chew the meat and spit out the bone , I followed her advice and read the story for what it was a romance with a fantastic storyline.My emotions were drug through the ringer with this little story between the heartbreak of Haley and losing Sam then Stephen s guilt and sadness over never making amends with his mirror twin.I can t give too much of the story away just remember this is about a woman who loses her husband in Afghanistan and never gets to tell him that she is pregnant with their child It s also about a man who finds out his twin brother is dead but left behind a pregnant wife who knows nothing about him.He just wants to learn about his brother and figure out why they couldn t forgive each other after 12 years of separation he wants answers that Haley can t give him.A bond starts to form and ice melts, smiles appear and hearts mend.For reviews, Free E books and Giveaways

    You know those books that just stick with you The kind that is beautiful in its complexity and yet it s simplicity The kind that the characters reach through the pages and twine themselves around your heart That book is Somebody Like You.From the first page to the last, Halley and Steven wound their way around my heart with their emotions, their struggles and their heart Steven is one of those heroes that every girl wants to sigh over and prays will walk into her life My heart yearned to patch his in the rift that has ripped through his and his twin brother s relationship.And Haley I don t even know how to describe her The book does such a better job than my words ever will There is a complex layer of emotions protecting her but they are flimsy at best and a shallow shell that only leaves her feeling lost There is such a fine balance to walk in this book can a widow fall in love with her husband s mirror twin brother I have to be honest I wasn t sure it could be done Without feeling rushed Without feeling as though Haley was betraying her first husband, Sam I think you can look at my star rating and see that I thought this novel is a success Beyond a success A beautiful mosaic of love, forgiveness and second chances and yet so much Highly recommended Highly.This review is my honest opinion Thanks to the publisher for my copy to influence.

    Rating 4.5 In this poignant story, Haley is dealing with the grief of her husband s death in Afghanistan as well as being pregnant She feels lost, alone, and disheartened When a knock sounds at her door, she opens it to find a man who looks and sounds just like her husband and discovers Stephen her husband s identical mirror twin brother whom she knew nothing about Stephen is dealing with the loss of his twin brother and the 12 year estrangement between them This is definitely a story that will bring out the kleenex a time or two Following Stephen s journey as he finds out about his brother s missing years and comes to grips with his part in their estrangement was a tale of forgiveness and growth Haley had to learn that she could keep a part of her heart for Sam and his memories, but it was okay to move on They both had to realize that their only obligation was to live up to God s expectations and not the world s I have to admit that the 4.5 rating is due to Haley s character She drove me crazy so many times First, why would a pregnant woman who supposedly cares a great deal about her baby make such POOR food choices over and over Second, why would a pregnant woman be working and practicing at a gun range when studies have shown that repeated loud noises can affect a baby s hearing Finally, what right did she have to judge Stephen so harshly at times when she didn t know the background of the estrangement between he and his brother.Overall, the book was a compelling read and I would recommend it for those who enjoy modern Christian romance.

    This book is delightfully writtenand you ll probably need a tissue at least once before the ending It s unexpectedly deep in many ways, facing the definitions of family and what it really means to love someone It feels like you re right there with Haley as she fights through the grief of losing her husband Sam, the emotions of becoming a mother, and the questions that remain after a mostly long distance marriage.Add to that Stephen, who is ready to reconnect with his lost brother just weeks too late, and who feels desperate to find out who his brother became before his death Is there any hope for this splintered family to find peace and harmony

    The theme of grief is the front and center theme of this novel It s not depressing, though, I was touched than anything Even with the unique plot, the characters and their interactions with each other felt very realistic Haley and Stephen both explore their regrets with their relationship with Sam and life up to the point they are at, since they are both at a crossroads The writing is sweet and tender, raw and real A perfect balance between hurt, healing, and hope Highly recommend Thank you to Howard Books for providing a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review

    4 4.5 stars Great storyline, but have your Kleenex handy The beginning is a little slow, but things pick up at the halfway point I enjoyed Stephen, but had a hard time getting close to Haley She was so determined to be one of the boys, that it was hard for me to relate to her at least in the beginning The storyline was fresh, not something that I ve read in prior books The ending was good my required happily ever after minus an epilogue.

    Beth K Vogt has written another wonderful story I found the plot fascinating how the heroine never knew about her late husband s twin brother until he showed up It was a crazy and yet so beautiful romance story I loved the characters and how the heroine s struggle regarding Stephen was exactly how you d think someone in her shoes would feel All in all, I loved Somebody Like You It was a moving contemporary read and I recommend it Disclosure of Material Connection I received one or of the products or services mentioned above for free in the hope that I would mention review it on my blog I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion which I ve done All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own and I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission s 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

    Stories that take normal and cast it aside for their 300 pages are a sure way to win my heart With renowned author Beth Vogt s latest, that is exactly what Somebody Like You sets out to do and accomplishes Books like this cannot be summed up in one word or really justified in the average words that will make up this review The story is unique, poignant, heartbreaking and in between the tears these emotions will invoke, inspiring For some readers I understand that this is a story that may not work well for them, and I get that A brothers falling in love with the same girl doesn t always compute or feel authentic yet under the skill of Vogt s pen, it s wonderful It reminded me of another oldie favorite, Tender Vow only if possible, this story was written with care both for the characters and for us, the reader, who are give the chance to have this novel experience What Beth does with her perception of the story is marry two hearts who are hurting beyond just what they physically lost while trying to navigate the complexities of growing into the people they want to be or the person they didn t know existed inside themselves The characters of this story are beautifully human I loved seeing Haley blossom into a new version of herself, and coming to realize that regardless of a romantic, whirlwind romance, she and Sam weren t the best for each other For Haley, Sam would always be a special part of her life, but he wasn t the only man she could love and contrary to the impression of him I d developed, he wasn t a man who easily settled Then there was Stephan I m pretty sure that I had an image of him in mind akin to how Sam was written instead it was the twin left behind who tenderly cared, who wanted to be a part of someone s life fully the good, bad and messy Stephan was wonderful He gave Haley space while still not letting her retreat without explaining herself or giving him a chance to prove to her what he could give Surrounding these two is also a cast of secondary characters that sparkled with great personality and also emotional purpose some family members are put in stories just for the point of giving colorful scenes to books, these are there for so much Somebody Like You is than a man fighting guilt for stepping into a protective role of many hats brother in law, husband, father or a woman feeling like she was living every day with her now gone husband in the mirror image of her brother in law It s about the fragility of human nature and the means we can draw from to rise above our own worries Or fears of imperfection Or our sense of being not good enough Everything from the small details to the beautiful rendering of God s love, is told with gentle beauty and a sense of strength This is one of those works of fiction that met and surpasses expectations It surprised, enchanted in its realism, plus, Beth creates some fabulously fun dialogue that involves wait for it, Marvel references That s a sure way to get me all swoon y, and that s exactly what Somebody Like You did Find the Review elsewhere Blogger Novel Crossing Wordpress Sincere thanks to the publisher Chris and Casey Herringshaw thank you a bunch, Casey for providing a complimentary copy of this book for reviewing purposes.

    I discovered Beth K.Vogt s books quite by accident and that is one discovery I am so glad I made Her first two were wonderful and her novella, recently released, was as satisfying as a full novel.Haley Ames is a recent widow, her military husband killed in Afghanistan She is also pregnant and alone Haley grew up with brothers, so she learned to be tough and take care of herself But this pregnant widowhood is not for the faint of heart.One day a man shows up on her porch and turns her world upside down Is she dreaming Has Sam returned from the dead No, it s his twin brother, Stephen, whom Sam neglected to tell her about She runs him off her property.Sam and his brother Stephen were estranged for many years and Stephen just wants to know about his brother, but Haley doesn t want to cooperate Stephen continues to come around, saying it s to help Haley with needed house repairs, but he is beginning to fall for Haley How can this be Is it right to love his brother s widow Haley, too, is having issues She has always been tough and strong and able to take care of herself, but she enjoys the way Stephen treats her Like a lady who means something to him But to Haley, this new world is way too weird Two people are drawn to each other, but there s someone in the middle that they don t know what to do with Will they find their way out Will they truly believe that God works even in the hard times, even when things seem like there will never be any good times Beth K Vogt has written a precious story of two people who learn to let God have His way in their lives even when they don t understand what s happening around them This one is for the keeper shelf I am already eagerly anticipating her next novel This book was provided to me by the publisher, which in no way influenced my review.
