When Kelly Silverthorne loses her first legal case, she heads for Deer Lick, Montana, to attend her brother Matt's wedding, and "lick" her wounds. She sees how happy Matt and Emma are, and how her younger sister Kate is with her hubby, Dean, and feels like a spare tire. Her past relationships never seemed to gel. Then she sees Deputy James Harley, a man with whom she shared a night and her cheeks redden with the memory. They not only gelled - they were hot.

But Kelly is determined to spend time with her family - minus her mother, who died of a heart attack. Soon after Kelly enters her mother's ancient Buick, the radio starts playing a Tom Jones song and Letty Silverthorne's voice fills the back seat. Kelly can't believe she's talking to her mother's spirit. Kelly doesn't even believe in spirits. Even so, just as Letty helped Matt and Kate, she wants to help Kelly through rough times. Their interchanges are often hilarious and touching.

James has his own inner failures and turmoil. He cares for his rebellious younger brother and their sick mother, and even his mother's two Yorkshire terriers. Now that Kelly's back in town, he longs to care for her as well, but feels he's not worthy.

But Kelly's mother has her own methods for ensuring her daughter's happiness. A mother knows what's best for her daughter -- even if her spirit can't leave the Buick.

Somebody Like You is one of the most charming and endearing romances I have read in a long time. Both Kelly and James have believable hurdles to overcome, and just might make it, with Letty's help. This was a feel good novel that had me laughing and crying at the same time...a totally satisfying read.

Reviewer Linda Morelli is the award winning author of three published romance novels.
