Someone Like You: A Novel (The Baxter Family)
Although I was very excited to read this book because of its simple yet sweet plot, I found that Someone Like You really just fell through the cracks for me. Maddie West is approached by a stranger named Dawson Gage only to find out that her embryo had been adopted by the people she calls Mom and Dad. Somewhere out there are her biological parents and her biological sister, London, who is Dawson’s best friend. Within the first few chapters of the book, London is tragically killed. Somehow, Dawson does the research after London says on her death bed that she thinks she has a sister and Brooke, London’s mom, is overheard saying that she never should have given up the embryos.
Also, nowhere does it mention that this book should be shelved under Christian fiction, but it really should be as there is a lot, and I mean a lot, of reference to God and Jesus because both families are very religious. I didn’t mind this, however it would have been nice to know that this was an underlying theme throughout the book. Overall, the story was nice but it really was summed up in the summary on the book jacket. Don’t expect any surprises.
