Book Description:
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?

Hunter is known for writing fun interesting stories that know how to hold your attention. In Another Life is no different.

I was looking forward to a good mystery, a little intrigue and a nice sweet romance. And while I did get all of these things, I didn't quite get as much of the mystery/thriller aspect I was hoping I would, but that is okay because this story still managed to hold my attention and keep me turning the pages. 

The romance was sweet and the mystery, while predictable was still a fun element to the story that added depth and entertainment and again was engaging enough to keep me reading and having a fun time. 

While maybe not my favorite story of the author's, still a fun one to read on a long weekend to just get away for a bit and fans will be sure to enjoy.

  10. It wasn't my favorite Hunter book (although I did enjoy it), because I wish their had been more adult involvement. Yes, they didn't want to hurt anyone, but there were plenty of parents around that would have wanted to help. I think they should have come clean a lot sooner, which would likely have kept them out of the danger they found themselves in. I thought the ending was a tad too anticlimactic, and the bow was tied too snugly. I wish there had been more of an altercation or something... more? Blargh, I don't know. It just didn't feel as impactful as some of her previous books.

    Glad you enjoyed it overall!

    1. I agree! And I think most of the time, the mystery was just way too predictable.
