Someone Like You: Escape with this perfect uplifting romance by [Tracy Corbett]

If you would enjoy a cheesy, cozy romance novels, then this book might be for you all.

What will happen when two people meet on a vacation and then lie one another about their selves? Well, Lily lost her grandparents and then goes to Caribbean for the vacation. Will Taylor who is a single father also goes for a vacation to Caribbean. The two meet each other and then fell in love and then when the vacation is over, they go on their separate ways back in England. Now here’s the white lie–Lily told Will that she was a costume designer when in fact she is working in a clothing factory. Will told Lily that he was not married. So when back in England when Lily gets a job in Will’s production company, things start to turn uphill.

First of all, I love the book cover so five stars for the beautiful cute cover! But the plot line…I didn’t really like it. I feel like I was watching some soap opera Hallmark holiday movie where boy meets girl, fall in love, then fall out and then again get back together. The writing was good and I didn’t very much like some of the characters like Will. Overall, the book was unrealistic and a bit predictable as you know that is what is going to happen in the end that it will be actually happily ever after.

Overall, I rate this book as three stars–thank you Netgalley and the publisher for giving me the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.

Tracy started writing in her late twenties, song lyrics, sketches for pantomimes and short stories, before venturing into the wonderful world of novel writing. She describes her writing style as modern tales of romance, with engaging quirky characters, who overcome adversity, grow as people and conclude in satisfying optimistic endings. When Tracy isn’t writing, she enjoys amateur dramatics and can regularly be found dressing up in various strange costumes and prancing about the stage pretending to be all manner of odd characters!
