5.0 out of 5 stars A Tale Of Two Sisters November 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was drawn into this book about two sisters who were on different paths in their lives but shared an unbreakable bond with each other. They've both been hurt by the men in their lives and have children that they love need to care for from these men. The way each of them deals with the disappointment arising from these relationships is totally different and ends up with each of them going from heartache, to exhilaration, to tragedy and then to reconciliation with important people in their lives. It is a wonderful book, with emotional ups and downs and you just want to jump into the story and try to help them all out at times. I'm hoping there might be a sequel that will let us in on how everything turned out for them. You'll find yourself aching for each of these characters as they go through their individual journeys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Written With Passion And Expertise January 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Someone Like You by author Suzanne Jenkins is an intense and deep read, written with passion and expertise. I have fell in love with this authors writing style, her novels always leave me on the edge of my seat, and in this case, late for work, as time got away from me. But it was totally worth it! ;) Someone Like You introduces us readers to a new set of characters, that arrive to the storyline with all their own baggage. This is quite an emotional read, as the author slowly teases us into the complete plot gradually, and come 40 % completion, a sudden bombshell is dropped, and from there I just could not put this book down! Sisters Marley and Abigail have had a rough family life due to the lack of good parenting, and never have had a decent and loving relationship with their parents. As a result, they are left with lifetime emotional scars that prevent them from developing their own love life. Will these sisters find true love, and will they finally renew their relationship with their parents? I highly suggest downloading Someone Like You especially if you are a fan of author Suzanne Jenkins work. This is another 5 star sink your teeth into read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner! November 16, 2013

Loved this book! Light-hearted and humorous. All the characters are truly likeable (even Albie and the parents), even when you can't agree with their actions. Could there possibly be a sequel to this???

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and entertaining read January 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was some of what you expect and a lot of what you never see coming.
I have no regrets in reading it. In fact, I checked the author out further and I rarely do that.

This was an enjoyable read because the story line was not typical and because the characters were very well-drawn, intriguing and likable. This story is about childhood abuse, forgiveness, single parenting, trauma and tragedy -- and, above all, about relationships. Some of the male characters were just too perfect, but, hey, it's fiction. Although this was not a particularly short novel, there were times when events or changes seemed to happen too fast with no evolution. And, yet, the author pulled it off. I feel more positive about this book after having finished it than I did while reading it.

I do love Suzanne Jenkins' work, having read Pam of Babylon -- and I have several others of her books waiting for me to get to them. I think she offers something unique in her plots and story lines -- and her characters have depth. Pam of Babylon was a very different and refreshing read, and I am eager to read the other books in that series.
