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.
