Publisher's Summary

Jill Strathern left town for the big city and never looked back—until she returned home years later to run a small law practice. It turns out her childhood crush, Mac Kendrick, a burned-out LAPD cop, has also come back to sleepy Los Lobos. Even though Mac rejected her back in high school, Jill can't deny the attraction she still feels for him.

Now Jill and Mac are tangled in enough drama to satisfy the most jaded L.A. denizens—Mafia dons, social workers, angry exes and one very quirky eight-year-old make even the simplest romance complicated. And it all goes to prove that when it comes to affairs of the heart, there's no place like home. An unlikely pair...but a perfect match.

Not so good

What disappointed you about Someone Like You?

The narrator did not do justice to this story. I wish I knew her name becuase I would avoid other books with her name.

Would you recommend Someone Like You to your friends? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this audio book to any freind. The narrator was poor.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?

NO!

What character would you cut from Someone Like You?

Narrator!

Any additional comments?

I really like Susan Mallery, but...

Cannot Get Past the Reader

I honestly don't know if this book is good or not. Because I get my books in audible, I depend on good (or, at best) passable readers. This particular reader ("unknown" in print and I cannot remember what her name is from the beginning of the book)...is horrible. She needs a great deal more practice to make a book...even the best of books...work. I honestly think she would make Nora's (JD Robb's) books "unlistenable"! Very sad. I may (or may not) purchase this book to read. Generally I like Susan Mallery's writing (and listening to). This one, not at all.

Could not listen to the reader.

I'm sure this could be a good book. OMG the reader is soooo boring. The her tone never changed, you could not tell the difference between the Characters. While reading she never took a breath. Don't waste your time. Read the book yourself. The book falling for Gracie was great. Too bad it was not the same reader.

Narration made it hard to listen

I love Susan Mallery books! However, this narration made it hard for me to follow the story. You could hear her stop, swallow and continue with a dry mouth. Very distracting and took the focus off of the story.

Narrator Ruins This Story

I made the mistake of buying this audible book without reading the reviews! This narrator, Carla Carpetto, has no appeal. There is no emotion in the delivery. It feels as if she is removed from the emotions of the characters. I can't get to know the characters through her delivery. What a disappointment! I hate to waste a credit, but I really am not enjoying listening to her! I have really loved Susan Mallery's books and her narrators to this point, but I may not finish listening to this book. I am a little angry over it as well because I trusted the worthiness of Susan Mallery's books on Audible! If I could have rated the permformance less than one star I would have done so! BOO!

Just okay

I usually really enjoy Susan Mallery’s books but this one fell short. It’s a light and easy listen but I just couldn’t engage with the characters and the narration was bad.

I am in the Fort Lauderdale area, Pomona’s Beach. I needed some down time. The book was relaxing and hopeful. Everyone is looking for “ Someone like You”. Thanks again
