series is the perfect beach escape, and just wait until you meet Sam and Shelby! These two are as different as night and day, and no one in the small beach community of Magnolia Sound would ever put them together.
Sam is less than thrilled about having to spend a year in Magnolia Sound to fulfill the terms of his great-grandfather's will and inherit his landscaping business. He did some dumb things as a kid during his summers there, and the people of Magnolia Sound have long memories, but Sam is trying to restore his reputation and he's putting his heart into his landscape business.
Shelby is the town's good girl. Sweet, agreeable, quiet, a little awkward, the town librarian and the Baptist preacher's daughter – all things that would typically make a girl invisible to Sam. But when he meets her out at a club, one look is all it takes for him to be hooked.
I love Sam and Shelby, and they're both so good for each other! Sam has a skewed perception about what others think of him and in getting to know Shelby he starts to see things more clearly. And Shelby is the true hero in this story. She learns bravery, finds her inner strength, speaks her mind and stands up to people. I loved watching her grow and was cheering her on every step of the way.
The books in this series stand alone, so you can start with this one and catch up on the others afterwards if you haven’t read them yet. A Girl Like You is a sweet, funny, uplifting story and a great way to get away from real life for a few hours. Don’t miss Sam and Shelby’s story.
