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 Thoughts:
I've read Bylin's previous books Until I Found You and Together With You.  This most recent book did not disappoint!  Readers who like contemporary Christian romances will really enjoy Bylin's cast of characters in Someone Like You.  This is not your typical Christian romance.  Bylin does an excellent job of giving readers characters whose lives aren't all neat and tidy but showcases the transformation that God's grace brings about in a life.  I liked hearing from the different points of view as well.  In this story, there is tension, romance and even a bit of suspense in wondering how everything will work out.  I appreciated that Bylin didn't "spill all the beans" too early.  Above all, the thread of faith is strong and the gospel message is clear.

*I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
