Someone Like You, by Victoria Bylin {book review}

About the book

Single mom Julia Dare has a lot on her plate.

A brand new Christian, Julia is 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?

What I thought about the book

I found Someone Like You to be an appealing story, and a quick, easy read. I could relate with some of Zeke's struggles of having grown up feeling like he needed to be a perfect Christian, yet feeling as if he'd failed miserably. I could also relate to Julia's struggles as a single mom, since I've "been there, done that." And frankly, I loved the surprise appearances of Ladybug, the goat! What a fun twist to the story! I highly recommend this one, and will be sharing it with my mom, and probably my daughter.
