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.

This is the most unique story, well to me anyway. Haley’s husband was killed in Afghanistan, before he found out Haley was pregnant with their first child. Haley lives her life doing what she had to in order to survive without Sam. But then when a strange guy shows up at her door, could the military have been wrong all along and Sam was really alive? But wait, he isn’t Sam, but he looks exactly like him, talks like him, but just exactly who it he?? Could Sam have a twin and not told her about him?

I am hooked on Beth Vogt books! Each one gets better and better! As the friction continues between this stranger and Haley, and circumstances brings them together more, tensions begin to calm a bit. I loved following Haley and Stephen’s story, with its ups and downs, and the many frustrating times they seem to be together. But I so wanted this couple to be together. I love the way Ms. Vogt weaves all of the difficult and heartbreaking memories, the emotional situations and these wonderful believable characters together and wrote one of the best stories I have read in a while! Through there was a lot of sadness and loss, there was also a lot of humor, fun and entertainment. I keep wanting to write more about the story, but I don’t like giving the plot away so you really need to read this wonderful book for yourself. If you enjoy a good, clean and fun read, you cant go wrong with Somebody Like You. And I am eagerly awaiting the next book from Beth K. Vogt!
