Somebody Like You Book Review

You are going to love reading this very romantic and heartwarming story called Somebody Like You written by Beth R. Vogt.

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 inexplicably 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?
This is a dilemma that I hope I never have to make for myself. I guess Haley is a lot tougher or stronger than me. It would make me feel really weird and very guilty to move on with her husband's twin brother. To me, it would just be too spooky, but I guess love will do strange things to people and you can never predict the future.

I think I would always be second guessing myself as to my real feelings and would always wonder if I was projecting my feelings but I can see where this might make a great love story and it is tragic that her husband, Sam was killed. I hate hearing about our soldier's being killed in such a far away place that I am not so sure that they really want us there to begin with.

But, I have to admit this book is very good at what it does best and that is grab at your heart and no matter what your personal opinion is, it's a great story and all the more heart wrenching when tragedy is involved, especially about a loved one killed in a senseless war.

Happy Reading!
