Welcome to my stop on the In Another Life blog tour and thank you to Wednesday Books/St. Martin’s Press for the invitation!
Chloe was adopted at three years old. Fourteen years after her adoption, her parents are divorcing, and she and her mother move to small town Texas.
This means Chloe has to start a new school as a senior. This isn’t easy for Chloe, and after a relatively uneventful childhood (after the adoption), this shakes her up. I think it would any teen, truly.
Chloe meets Cash, and they are the best of friends almost instantly; however, Cash has a hidden motive. Chloe looks like the daughter his foster parents lost years earlier. What’s the truth? How are they connected?
It turns out Chloe’s adoption has some secrets bigger than she could have ever fathomed.
In Another Life is billed as a mystery/suspense, but to me, it felt much more like a young adult contemporary, and I liked it in that vein. There is drama, friendship, and the exploration of adoption and foster parenting. The latter was presented in a positive light with warm relationships all around, and I respected the author’s decision to examine adoption through that lens.
Overall, I found this an easy read with plenty of substance and perhaps a storyline that will resonate well with anyone who has been through the adoption or foster process.
I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.
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?
