Review of "Someone Like You" by Victoria Bylin

I found that when I started "Someone Like You" its one if those just one more page and then your at the end of the book. The author did such a good job of writing a story containing main characters who felt so very real. Zeke and Julia were characters who I immediately connected with. They had a rough history full of love loss and pain. In the years that they've been apart Zeke and Julia have changed, they are surprised to find out that the spark that drew them to each other was still there, as they are thrown together by work. The decisions that they had made in the five years they had been apart may prevent a future.
 It became very clear that this book was going to be full of tearful moments. Spiritual issues are revealed by the fact that Julia is a new Christian and Zeke is a Christian that has fallen out of sync in his walk of faith. Throw into the mix Julua's son in need of a strong male figure, an ex that is on the verge of being emotionally abusive, you have yourself a real page turner.
The setting of the Caliente Springs resort was a wonderful place, so wonderful that it was a place I wanted to be. "Someone Like You" met and exceeded all expectations. This is Bylin's third book with Bethany House.
