Someone Like You by Marie Force ~ New Release and Review

Release Date: February 15

After I suddenly lose my husband, Patrick, in a senseless shooting, I’m lost in a sea of well-meaning people trying to make the unimaginable seem possible. How am I supposed to go on without the man who's been at the center of my life for nearly a decade? My friends and family do what they can for me, but I quickly realize that surviving this loss is going to be on me. One day to the next, I have to make the decision to go on, but life isn’t done throwing me ringers, and just when I think I’ve got this young widow game figured out, I find out how wrong I am. When a friend of my sister’s connects me to the Wild Widows, I find a group of fellow travelers who understand my new reality in a way no one else in my life ever could. The Wild Widows have one requirement for membership to their group—I must be open to the possibility of a Chapter 2, which is what they call a second chance at love. While I’m not in any way looking for or ready for a Chapter 2, if I’ve learned anything it’s that I’m not in control of where this journey will take me.

Come along as Roni and the other Wild Widows navigate their new realities with grace, humor and compassion. They will make you laugh and cry and root for each and every one of them in this exciting, heartfelt new series from New York Times bestselling author Marie Force.

Review Copy Provided by Author

Every now and then I come across a book that, when I am done, I realize has left me a bit different than I was when I started the book. Someone Like You is one of those. My challenge now is to tell you enough so that you can decide if you want to read the book, but not so much that I risk ruining the book experience for you.

Someone Like You is a bit of a crossover in that the main character, Roni, first appeared in Ms Force’s Fatal series. That said this is a complete standalone and can be read that way.

When we meet Roni, she has just experienced a tragic event. The story here follows her as she deals with the grief associated with that and begins to move forward. One of the things I appreciated most about Ms Force’s approach here is that she let Roni be honest in her feelings and gives her an excellent support network. I will say that there is a bit of “best case scenario” here that may not be 100% realistic, but it’s a fictional story and I don’t know about you, but I want that best case…..

A piece of Roni’s support network is the Wild Widows and they (along with Roni’s family) make up the majority of the secondary cast. This is a group that I enjoyed getting to know and hope to see more of as this series develops. There are multiple pearls of wisdom given out here that I found relevant and touching. Seeing Roni’s journey and some of the challenges she faces have in turned challenged the way I see certain events and the responses to them.

Readers need to go into this book knowing that it is an emotional read. It’s a reading journey worth taking and it may leave you a bit different on the other side, but I honestly think the changes will be for the better in terms of empathy and understanding.
