Description of Someone Like You

Single mom Julia Dare has a lot on her plate. A brand new Christian, she’s busy trying to run her own business, spend time with her widowed mother, and raise her young son, Max, despite his father’s less-than-ideal influence on him. When a big account from her event-planning business sends her to the Caliente Springs resort, she’s shocked to come face-to-face with Zeke Monroe, the resort’s general manager and her college sweetheart.

With his faith in tatters, Zeke Monroe is determined to keep the historic Caliente Springs resort running despite financial difficulties. But when Julia walks back into his life, he can’t ignore the feelings she stirs up. As they work together on an important client’s dream wedding, the fate of the resort soon depends on their success. When Zeke and Julia are pushed to their limits both personally and professionally, will their history put up walls between them or bring them together?

My review of Someone Like You

Someone Like You is a beautiful love story. The characters are talently written. They feel like friends who have let us watch a segment of their lives.

The setting was perfect. And Ladybug’s addition was just right for a humorous touch. Very clever to have a cantankerous¬†goat for comic relief.

Hunter, as the antagonist, was easy to dislike. His narcissistic arrogance was quite believable and Julia handled him very well.

Zeke was going through a time in his life where he was questioning his faith. I think that happens to a lot of us at one time or another. His struggles and thought process during this time were  portrayed very realistically.

I loved Ellen. She was a great mother/grandmother figure. She loved her daughter and grandson and helped them however she could. She was a woman of faith as was shown by her actions. She and George were just so darn cute.

A good story showing how God works in our lives. He loves us just the way we are. I liked this story very much. I hope if you are in the market for a contemporary Christian romance you will consider checking out this book. I think you will enjoy it.I know I did. Let me know what you think.
