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.

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.

Just wonderful!!!

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

Surprised!

After reading the reviews on this book, I almost didn’t choose it. I liked the story and the characters. I agree a better narrator could have enhanced the enjoyment of this story and although annoying at times, I still enjoyed this book.

This reader is awful!!!!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not the audiobook! Maybe reading it on your own. The reader ruined it for me!

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

NO WAY!!!

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

yes
