ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: In Another Life
Author: C. C. Hunter
Release: March 26, 2019
Publisher: Wednesday Books
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?

I knew when I first saw the synopsis for this book that this was something I would be highly interested in reading. I read This Heart of Mine last year and was blown away by the gripping, emotional story and so I was excited for another heart-rending read from C. C. Hunter. In Another Life delivers a story that is sure to thrill and captivate readers!
As with This Heart of Mine, it was very easy to get lost in the pages. The writing itself didn’t necessarily hook me, but the story Hunter tells is extremely compelling and I flew through the pages wanting to find out the truth about what happened. The plot is an intriguing topic, and after reading the synopsis the first time I was immediately reminded of the kidnappings of Kamiya Mobley and Carlina White. Although In Another Life follows a somewhat different storyline, the author did a fantastic job portraying the feelings and confusion Chloe would have been going through. The climax/conclusion was very emotional and it was hard not to empathize with our protagonist.
In Another Life offers a fresh story that weaves YA contemporary with suspense to create an emotional, captivating story. There were a few things that I think could have been written a little better – namely, the romance – but besides that small issue I enjoyed reading this story and look forward to more from C. C. Hunter in the future!

I just stared reading this one for the tour and so far I’m liking it, except Chloe sounds like such a whiny character and it’s kind of annoying at times. Some parts of it are kind of weird so far (I’m only like 20% through it), and I’m hoping some things are better explained later on in the book. Great review!

Chloe really wasn’t my favorite, but the intrigue of the plot is what drew me to the story. Totally agree about the weirdness though: the book is like a mix of contemporary + thriller almost?
