Cathy Kelly has enjoyed unprecedented success in the UK and her native Ireland. Building on the popularity of her "Dear Cathy" advice column, Kelly brings to her fiction a warmth and humor that speaks to women everywhere.
Hannah, Emma, and Leonie, three women at critical turning points in their lives, meet on holiday and find themselves changing in unexpected ways. Hannah, young, beautiful and reeling from the betrayal of a lover, decides to throw herself into her career and embrace the single life. Emma, married for two years and hoping to start a family, constantly questions her ability to be a parent, while still allowing her own parents to interfere in her life. Leonie, generously proportioned and equally big-hearted, wonders if she'll ever find love with three teenage children in tow.
Someone Like You is a celebration of life and friendship, firmly establishing Cathy Kelly as a captivating new voice in contemporary women's fiction.

When I first picked up this book I don't know what I actually expected. By the fourth chapter I couldn't put it down. It really paints a picture of what 'TRUE FRIENDSHIP' is all about. I would love to see Ms. Kelly write a second book about how these three women evolved in their lives. GREAT JOB! Girls Rule.
I found this book very easy to read and relate to. I found something with each character that I was familiar with. The only issue I had was the unrevealing setting. The author relies on speech mannerisms to tell you the setting instead of just telling you. Also some minor errors in facts but otherwise enjoyable if you don't get hung up on mistakes like 'My dog is half labrador, half retriever.' Aren't Labrador's always retrievers?
This book was incredible. The bond between friends really shines out throughout the book. An excellent read!!!
