Publisher's Summary

When she finally surrenders her heart, will it be too late?
Susan Quinn, a social worker turned surrogate mom to foster teens, fights to save the group home she's worked hard to build. But now, she faces a dwindling staff, foreclosure, and old heartaches that won't stay buried. Her only hope lies with the last person she'd ever turn to - a brawny handyman with a guitar, a questionable past, and a God he keeps calling Father.
Like a Love Song is a romantic drama about a fiercely loyal woman and some castaway kids who need the courage to believe in a love that never fails.

What the Critics Say

"In her sophomore novel, Camille Eide has penned a beautiful tale with just the right chords of humor and tenderness. The prose of Like a Love Song is lovely, and the myriad twists and turns tugged at my heart as I was rooting for this cast of endearing characters. The splendor and raw beauty of Oregon's high desert is the perfect backdrop for this gripping love story. It's one you don't want to miss" (Carla Stewart, award-winning author of Stardust and The Hatmaker's Heart)
"Eide writes a touching story about two unlikely heroes who sacrifice themselves to love those who are not loved by others ... This emotional book touches on very tender subjects in a tactful, graceful way..." Romantic Times, 4.5 Stars, Top Pick)

Most Helpful

More than a Love Story

If you could sum up Like a Love Song in three words, what would they be?

Beautiful, engaging, heartfelt


Who was your favorite character and why?

Joe was my favorite character because a) dreamy sigh, b) his history is a sort-of picture of a character from all the way back in Genesis, and c) his relationship with God.


Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene - Joe taking a rather drugged Sue home from the clinic after her knee surgery. Adorably cute :)


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! Becky Doughty did a great job again with voices, especially Chaz! Ah! His lisp, my heart! :)

A heartwarming, inspiring, compelling romance!

I loved this book! Susan Quinn, social worker turned surrogate mom to foster teens, is a very strong, compelling character. She uses her past to push her to do everything she can for the kids in her care and to relate to them on a level that others can't. When she reaches the end of her rope, she turns to the only option that seems available, a brawny handyman with a guitar and a relationship with a God he keeps calling Father. However, this handyman also has a past and is on a mission of his own. As the sparks fly between them, can these two work together to save the group home and be there for the kids in her care? Or will their pasts catch up to them and tear them apart?

The kids in this story will break your heart! I loved the interactions Susan and Joe had with these kids and the way they were able to relate to them and help them. Their individual personalities shine through and you'll root for their happy ending.

This book is very well written with plenty of drama, a little bit of mystery, an endearing romance and an emotional, inspirational, compelling story-line. You won't want to put it down once you start it!

The narration of this story by Becky Doughty was awesome! I could listen to her voice for hours! I specifically looked for more stories narrated by her when I was done with this one.
