Someone Like You by Victoria Bylin

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 Review

The setting of this book, made me want to live there, Caliente Springs resort, even the name sounds wonderful. After leaving Berkley and trying to be what his Dad wanted him to be Zeke Monroe is at a high point in his career, but a low point with God. Now being a preacher's son and trying to live in his father's shoes and being the best Christian ever, has been a hard roll for Zeke, and making him take a 50 degree turn. He has stopped relying on God, but God sure hasn't given up on him.
A young single mom that used to be a couple with Zeke, comes to check out Caliente Springs, coincidence? I think not, she has made a 50 degree turn in her life and is now a Christian, after all the years of Zeke trying to show her the way, now maybe she can show him? Julia Dare has a new job, and with her mom's help is raising her 4 year old son Max, and she now has a new event-planning job.
We also meet Max's dad Hunter, and don't know about you, but I sure didn't like that "Me" person. Little Max is a reflection on him, as is everyone and everything.
I could feel that maybe there would be a bit of romance here, but we find more than that, but who will be the ones who end up together? Even Julia's mom Ellen is in for a surprise.
I felt myself page turning and hoping for everything to be ok, even the horse, but watch out for the goat!
I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review
