Bookit Review: Someone Like You

Title: Someone Like You
Author: Barbara Bretton
Published: August 2, 2014 (Kindle Unlimited Edition)
Grade: B-

This is the second novel in Bretton’s Idle Point series, and as far as I can find out the last book.  The location seems to be the largest thing in common these two novels have, with a few minor characters that seem to come along for the ride.

In this novel, we have two sisters.  Cat and Joely are the daughters of two musicians who made a mark on musical histroy before their own relationship seemed to implode and their father Mark seemed to walk out on them.  With their mother more interested in finding their father, it ended up being Cat (along with their grandmother) who did most of the raising of Joely.  This has naturally left both girls with some issues.

Like the first book, I think some of the resolutions to the problems the two sisters face comes rather suddenly, but unlike the first book, it doesn’t seem as bad.  The story flows well for the majority of the story, and you want to see everything resolve happily.

I do give points to this novel for having the two love interest staying the course when problems arise.  The whole story of Mark’s life after he left was a little weird, but I enjoyed the story enough to just suspend my disbelief.

I feel as if this should have been a little longer, maybe a few chapters, to allow for the ending to be developed more, but thats just as a reader. This was much better then the first novel in the series and gives me hope that I’ll enjoy the second series I got from KU written by this author.
