About the book:

Someone Like You (Bethany House, May 2016)

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?

My Review:
"Someone Like You" is Victoria Bylin's latest novel and it is one that I loved from the very first page!  So much is learned of Zeke's character in the very first few pages as he is trying to save his business, for the sake of his employees.  Julia is trying to stay afloat in her business and in her personal life as a mother and trying to raise her son with her ex-husband.  Julia and Zeke have a history and now their lives are becoming intertwined again.  Victoria has created characters whom are so relatable and it is so easy to become completely caught up in their lives as they could be one of us or the neighbors next door.    This is such a sweet story, but also one that is so real- life with issues that must be addressed and are not just smoothed over and easily fixed.  Victoria writes with the perfect mix of love, and hope along with family relationships and trails that come with everyday life.  I have to add too that I just absolutely love this cover!
