Julia Dare is trying to run her own business, raise her young son, Max, and help her widowed mother. Her biggest worry, though, is keeping Max’s father from being a bad influence while still allowing the boy to spend time with his dad. When an account from her event-planning business sends her to Caliente Springs resort, she’s shocked to encounter Zeke Monroe, her college sweetheart.
Zeke is determined to keep Caliente Springs running despite financial trouble. When Julia walks back into his life, he’s surprised at the feelings she stirs up. As they work together on an important client’s wedding, the fate of the resort soon depends on their success. With Zeke and Julia both pushed to their limits, will their history put up walls between them or bring them together?
Would you just look at this cover? I want to snuggle up in that hammock with my man! Romantic!!!
Julia Dare is a single mom, entrepreneur, and new Christian. I admire Julia for her determination and commitment in every area of her life. She takes responsibility for her past mistakes and moves forward in God’s grace with her head held high. Julia has a close relationship with her mother and is devoted to her young son.
Zeke Monroe is a hard working resort manager with a natural gift for service. He refuses to give up hope even when he’s running out of time and money to revive the rundown resort and protect the livelihood of the 200 employees. Zeke’s most endearing characteristic is the way he goes the extra mile to do those little things that make people feel special.
Someone Like You is a wonderfully true-to-life romance. I love reading the snippets of day to day resort operations and everything about the menagerie of characters that make up the staff of the resort, including the horses and goats!
I requested the opportunity to read and review this book from Bethany House. The opinions expressed are my own.
