About the book:
What would you do if your whole life was a lie and learning the truth could cost you your life?
From New York Times bestselling author of the Shadow Falls series comes C. C. Hunter’s new YA thriller about a girl who learns that she may have been kidnapped as a child, and must race to uncover the truth about her past before she winds up a victim.
Chloe was three years old when she became Chloe Holden, but her adoption didn’t scar her, and she’s had a great life. Now, fourteen years later, her loving parents’ marriage has fallen apart and her mom has moved them to Joyful, Texas. Starting twelfth grade as the new kid at school, everything Chloe loved about her life is gone. And feelings of déjà vu from her early childhood start haunting her.
When Chloe meets Cash Colton she feels drawn to him, as though they’re kindred spirits. Until Cash tells her the real reason he sought her out: Chloe looks exactly like the daughter his foster parents lost years ago, and he’s determined to figure out the truth.
As Chloe and Cash delve deeper into her adoption, the more things don’t add up, and the more strange things start happening. Why is Chloe’s adoption a secret that people would kill for?
In Another Life by C.C. Hunter is a young adult thriller in which a teenager questions her adoption. Chloe was adopted as a toddler and has very few memories before her parents adopted her. She’s had a wonderful childhood ever since but always felt a bit of a loss in her life anyway.
Cash has been in and out of foster homes for years but has found a good home with a loving couple that honestly care for him. That couple had suffered a loss when their biological daughter was kidnapped. With a composite sketch of what the girl would now look like Cash is sure its Chloe.
In Another Life was a fairly quick moving tale. The author apparently has written a few romance books previously and it’s noticeable in the fact this seemed a little light on the mystery side and more about the relationship with Cash and Chloe. I wouldn’t say that’s necessarily bad but I did expect more suspense than just being led to the conclusion. Overall I rated this one at 3 1/2 stars and enjoyed the fast paced read.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
