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.

This book disappointed me as I bought it after reading her book The Savant of Chelsea and it didn't seem to me to even be the same author. I kept looking back to be sure I wasn't mistaken. It never really gets off the ground even though so much does happen to these likable characters. I can't put my finger on the feeling it left me with throughout but it was if I kept waiting for something different to happen in this story that never happens. Sorry to be so vague but I really can't explain it any better than that. Another book of the abuse so many go through in childhood that of course colors your entire world forever.

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.

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.

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???

I'm never surprised by any of Suzanne Jenkins' books. They all pull me in and keep me turning pages until I hit the end. This one was different from any of here others that I have read so far and was just an awesome story.

It got to me right from the start and I had such a hard time putting it down to do anything else. Sisters, Marley and Abigail are single mothers who have had a tough life. Their mother, Pauline, was very abusive to them and their father, Hubert, stood by and let it happen. Now as adults they don't feel worthy of true love or kindness coming their way. Marley has 3 children and is not a great mom, but she does not hit them. She feels like nothing she does or can do is good enough. Abigail has twin boys and never married their dad. He was abusive to her and she didn't really see it until after his death. He treated her terrible and yet she would go back for more, until they broke up, he had another girlfriend and Abigail found herself pregnant. She was terrified of telling anyone and was able to keep it a secret until she went into labor. I sorta got the feeling her father suspected it when he took her to the hospital. After she gave birth to twin boys her mother and father helped her out as much as possible. Though her mom still found fault in her way of doing things.

Both girls meet very nice men who will change their lives forever. Marley meets Jay, from India, who treats her like a queen and shows her what it's like to feel true unconditional love. He is the best thing to ever happen to her short of her 3 children, who's father does not help out at all. Jay is the one person that Marley has needed her whole life.

Abigail is introduced to Jay's friend, Brian, who has always been crazy about her.
