Really really excellent story about 3 friends, British, met on trip & then got together monthly (& more in between) because they were so great together. Not really romance, just human interest about stuff 3 adult women deal with, though there is some romance also. Author is Australian, & I do want to get more of her books. ( )

Author Cathy Kelly gives us three very distinctive women in this book. They all have their personal ups and downs and all are in need of a good friend/confidante. How fortunate that this is just what they find on a vacation in Egypt. They bond in the blistering Egyptian heat and, since they all live fairly near one another, continue the friendship once they are back in Dublin.
Hannah is the insecure career girl who has been dumped by her boyfriend of ten years. Can a career replace her need for romance? Will one-night stands be enough to satisfy? Can the handsome actor who fancies her provide lasting happiness?
Emma is a pathetic woman who even though married is being emotionally and verbally abused by her parents. When the tables are turned and a catastrophic illness causes them to need her, will she be there? Can she ever face the fears she has about not being able to conceive a child?
Leonie is the flamboyant mother of three teens who touched me the most. She has to face flying to America to see her ex-husband marry the perfect woman while she herself is reduced to looking for love in the personal ads column. Share her joy and sorrow as each of these dates leads to even more problems. Will Leonie be able to referee life at home and still find satisfaction for herself? And just who is that mysterious neighbor who walks his two dogs?
There's plenty of heart-touching situations in this one as three grown women find the courage to confront life's problems----the everyday ones and the major ones. After all, with friends like these, you know that hope and happiness is just around the corner. ( )

Great book! It really explored the theme of friendship between women and the way you can meet people on a holiday you wouldn't normally interact with and form new friendships. I loved the character of Leonie the best, I could really relate to her search for love and her envy of her ex-husbands new woman and how he had moved on and she hadn't. She was also a funny character. Emma was a bit annoying to begin with but became stronger towards the end. All in all it was very engaging and I couldn't put it down once I started. This is my favourite Cathy Kelly book ( )

Verhaal over 3 vrouwen die bevriend met elkaar raken. Ieder kampt met zijn eigen problemen. Buiten de liefdesperikelen komen ook wat serieuzere thema's aan bod zoals Alzheimer, maar al met al vond ik het een beetje een avant-chick-lit. Ik kan niet zeggen dat ik het met plezier gelezen heb. ( )

For some reason I am one of those people who don't read popular authors when they first become popular. I'm not sure why that is - perhaps it is because I read a lot of lesser known authors and enjoy supporting them.

Anyway, now I have finally read a Cathy Kelly book, I know I'll come back for more.

The book, Someone Like You, is set in Ireland and tells the story of three women, with very different backgrounds, coming together on a holiday in Egypt. They soon become friends and that friendship grows once they return home and have to face their old lives again.
Through the ups and downs each woman endures in their lives - Emma, wanting a baby and coping with a dominating father, Hannah, recovering from a broken heart and finds love where she least expects it, and Leonie, the oldest woman who has her hands full raising three teenagers and who hopes one day to meet the man of her dreams.
The books is full of practical modern day issues and is touched with witty humour and, at times, sadness, but Cathy Kelly's writitng shines as she brings the stories of these three women to a wonderful conclusion and I was reluctant to close the book. ( )

Hannah stak een slank, gebruind been uit, draaide met haar druipende voet bedreven aan de warmwaterkraan en genoot intens van het hete water dat ze in het bad voelde stromen.
