Author Bio

Beth K. Vogt is a nonfiction writer who said she’d never write fiction. After saying she’d never marry a doctor or anyone in the military, she is now happily married to a former Air Force family physician. Beth believes God’s best is often behind the door marked "never." An established magazine writer and editor, she now writes inspirational contemporary romance because she believes there is more to happily ever after than the fairy tales tell us.

Editorial Reviews

"In Vogt’s quietly beautiful inspirational contemporary, two people learn to let go of the past and discover that God often works in mysterious ways. . . . Vivid depictions of grief and love will tug at every available heartstring. . . . a heartwarming tearjerker about learning what love is. "

“The lovely and talented Beth Vogt weaves truth, grace, and romance into her novels. With a poignant plot and a tenderness that grips your heart, Somebody Like You is a story to be savored. Vogt shows how God restores the brokenness in lives for his happily ever after. This engaging read brought tears to my eyes several times, but it concluded with a heart-sighing smile.”
“Somebody Like You grabbed my interest from page one and didn’t let go. Beth K. Vogt pens this heart-wrenching and tender romance between a military widow and her husband’s estranged twin brother with the deftness and assurance of a skilled storyteller, rendering deep emotion without ever dissolving into melodrama. My only complaint is that it had to end! If Beth’s first two novels marked her as an author to watch, Somebody Like You proves she’s here to stay.”
“The tragedy of widowhood dampens the joy of new motherhood, but the faithfulness of God brings Haley the possibility of a whole new life in an unexpected way. Somebody Like You takes you on an emotional journey to witness the bravery of a widow in the face of impossible circumstances. Beth Vogt has written a book you will not soon forget.”

An expertly handled story of rekindled hearts and the whisper of a hope-filled future are safe in her very capable hands. For the broken, for the awakening of new love, for the heart that seeks a champion to heal its wounds . . . this is a special book.”
“From heart-wrenching to heart-pounding, Beth Vogt has penned a truly masterful tale of impossible love that is simply impossible to put down. With crisp prose, flesh-and-blood characters who live and breathe on the page, and a poignancy that reaches into one’s very soul, Somebody Like You is not only a must read for somebody like you . . . but for anyone who loves great fiction.”
“Beth Vogt captures the reader completely and doesn't let go until the last page is turned. Somebody Like You is a novel that will keep you turning pages well into the night; challenge, inspire, and encourage; and leave you wanting more. As a longtime fan of Beth's writing, I was immediately captured by this unique story. Realistic characters who face real challenges with courage, grace, and faith make this novel one you don't want to miss. As always, Beth does not disappoint. A great read!”
“Beth Vogt does it again! Somebody Like You weaves a heartfelt story of life and loss, love and regret, remembering what was and embracing what is. Haley and Stephen's journey reminds us that God can use the messiest of circumstances to offer healing, hope, and abundantly more than we dare to ask.”
“Woven with grace and sensitivity, author Beth K. Vogt sheds a tender light on the human spirit in this bittersweet story of love and loss. Beautiful and emotion-packed, the only bookmark for this is a Kleenex, for Somebody Like You will tug at your heart in a way that is not easily forgotten.”
“Somebody Like You is a story filled with characters I adored from the opening paragraphs. Two people trapped by choices in the past must choose whether to remain mired in the ramifications or step into the future. I couldn’t wait to return to the story and the journey. At the end, I sighed, longing for just a few more pages with my new friends. A perfect read for those who like a romance with a rich story and heart.”
“Poignant, intriguing, and not without its lighter moments, too, Beth Vogt’s Somebody Like You captured me from the first chapter. The unique premise—can a woman fall in love with her brother’s reflection?—had me curious from the start, but it was the emotional depth combined with heart-tugging characters that had me reading until late at night. A beautiful story, beautifully told.”
