When she finally surrenders her heart, will it be too late?
Susan Quinn, a social worker turned surrogate mom to foster teens, fights to save the group home she's worked hard to build. But now, she faces a dwindling staff, foreclosure, and old heartaches that won't stay buried. Her only hope lies with the last person she'd ever turn to - a brawny handyman with a guitar, a questionable past, and a God he keeps calling Father.
Like a Love Song is a romantic drama about a fiercely loyal woman and some castaway kids who need the courage to believe in a love that never fails.

"In her sophomore novel, Camille Eide has penned a beautiful tale with just the right chords of humor and tenderness. The prose of Like a Love Song is lovely, and the myriad twists and turns tugged at my heart as I was rooting for this cast of endearing characters. The splendor and raw beauty of Oregon's high desert is the perfect backdrop for this gripping love story. It's one you don't want to miss" (Carla Stewart, award-winning author of Stardust and The Hatmaker's Heart)
"Eide writes a touching story about two unlikely heroes who sacrifice themselves to love those who are not loved by others ... This emotional book touches on very tender subjects in a tactful, graceful way..." Romantic Times, 4.5 Stars, Top Pick)
Excellent storytelling and superb narration! Sue, Joe, Bertie, and all the kids fight to save Juniper Ranch. Their experiences of abandonment pulled my heartstrings and their resilience is inspiring.
I won this title in a giveaway. The opinions expressed are my own.
Beautiful, engaging, heartfelt
Joe was my favorite character because a) dreamy sigh, b) his history is a sort-of picture of a character from all the way back in Genesis, and c) his relationship with God.
My favorite scene - Joe taking a rather drugged Sue home from the clinic after her knee surgery. Adorably cute :)
Yes! Becky Doughty did a great job again with voices, especially Chaz! Ah! His lisp, my heart! :)
I loved this book! Susan Quinn, social worker turned surrogate mom to foster teens, is a very strong, compelling character. She uses her past to push her to do everything she can for the kids in her care and to relate to them on a level that others can't. When she reaches the end of her rope, she turns to the only option that seems available, a brawny handyman with a guitar and a relationship with a God he keeps calling Father. However, this handyman also has a past and is on a mission of his own. As the sparks fly between them, can these two work together to save the group home and be there for the kids in her care? Or will their pasts catch up to them and tear them apart?
The kids in this story will break your heart! I loved the interactions Susan and Joe had with these kids and the way they were able to relate to them and help them. Their individual personalities shine through and you'll root for their happy ending.
This book is very well written with plenty of drama, a little bit of mystery, an endearing romance and an emotional, inspirational, compelling story-line. You won't want to put it down once you start it!
The narration of this story by Becky Doughty was awesome! I could listen to her voice for hours! I specifically looked for more stories narrated by her when I was done with this one.

"Like a Love Song" is a book you won't want to put down and wish would never end. The character development will take you on a roller coaster of emotions, revealing deep wounds and healing that comes through redemptive grace and forgiveness. Camille Eide hit another home run with this captivating story of love and second chances.
I have not read the print version but thoroughly enjoyed both the story line and the narration.
The development of the characters. I loved getting to know the characters and the intricacies of their past and personalities.
She skillfully switched between distinctive character voices as well as mirrored the rhythm and mood of the characters with her voice.
I would have if i could have run away from life, yes! In all it took me less than two days and I found every opportunity not to "put it down".
This is the second book of Camille Eide's I've enjoyed and look forward to more. She is a skillful writer and I love both the plot and character development of her stories. They have just the right amount of predictability and surprise, creative confusing and serious problems that have beautiful and difficult to find solutions. I also love how she weaves a strong faith throughout her stories so that the solution really is through finding the Lord. Her books bring so much glory to God and this book in particular helped me to see the pursuit of God the father in a new and beautifully illustrated way.
