Hannah stretched one slim, tanned leg in the direction of the taps, clasped the hot tap expertly with her dripping foot and felt hot water flood deliciously into the bath. Read the first page

I have read 9 or 10 of her novels so far. There isn't one I have not enjoyed thoroughly. I love how she writes about every day people in every day situations, and not one of these situations/themes have been repeated in her next novel.

Three women meet on a trip to Egypt. They are all at different phases in life, but become fast friends. The story unfolds as they come back home and their relationships continue. One thing that is nice about this book is each woman is well sketched and the reader is interested in hearing each story. I think I liked Leonie the best though!

What was so wonderful about this book, aside from the basics: great plot, great characters, great development, were the characters themselves. There are three main characters in this book and I loved all three equally.
Cathy Kelly did a wonderful job of letting the reader see each of these very different women as who they were, and yet also let us see how such different women could form such a strong friendship and bond.
The pace of this book was very well done. Many authors skim over details and only focus on the big things...but not so with this novel. Cathy Kelly took her time, while all the while not creating a slow-read.
Great writing!!

This was definitely one of the best books I have read. I love that not only are you reading about the stories of these three amazing women, but you are reading about the lives of the characters sorrounding them. I cannot wait for another of her books.

After the introduction of the three main characters and a few chapters into the book, if you could not figure out how it would end, you have certainly never read a book before! The book was too predictable. It did hold my interest and I did read it to the end, but I like books where the ending is a little more of a surprise. Cathy Kelly is no maeve Binchy!

Hannah, Leonie and Emma stole my heart from the first pages of this wonderful book. I was immediately drawn into their lives, felt their pain, laughed alongside each of them and cheered them on to the finish.
A chance meeting on an Eygptian vacation leads these three women into the world of true friendship. An unlikely threesome from the beginning, each woman discovers a deep and compassionate sisterhood that gives each of them the strength to deal with their own lives on a deeper level.
This is my first Cathy Kelly book. I was very impressed by the depth of the character development and the insight that Ms. Kelly exhibits in her writing. I will be checking my book store for more of this author. Bravo!

This is the first book by Cathy Kelly I have ever read & I have to say I absolutely loved it... I did not want it to end. After finishing this one I would love to read all of Cathy Kelly's books.

There's a new crop of Irish authors gaining international success -- and Cathy Kelly is one of them. Kelly's literary debut in the US, Someone Like You, is an endearing story that centers in the lives of three rather different women.
Hannah: a career-oriented, gym-obsessed beauty with a penchant for unreliable men.
Emma: a happily married woman who hopes to have a baby. The doormat of a self-centered sister and a manipulative father, Emma's relationship with the aforementioned family members worsens when her mother suddenly becomes ill...
Leonie: a middle-aged divorced mother of three children whose ordered life shatters when her ex-husband announces his pending nuptials.
Having met on vacation in Egypt, these women stick together through the rough patches in their lives. Their togetherness makes for a poignant and endearing read. Cathy Kelly is a great literary voice that will capture readers' hearts. I recommend this wonderful novel.
