I’ve been busy writing my next stand alone book. In Another Life is a about a teenager who was adopted when she was three. But not everything is as it seems. This idea came to me one day a number of years ago when I was watching a show on the ID channel. Yes, I do watch the ID channel. Because I write a lot of suspense in my books, I consider it research. I think it also scares my husband a little. LOL. Hey… I do know how to plan the perfect murder now.
Anyway, the channel often puts pictures of missing children on the show in the hope that someone recognizes the child and will alert the authorities. Sometimes, they show an age progression photo, an image of the child as an artist thought they would look now, when they were older. Shortly after that I was walking into a Wal-Mart and saw the images of missing children on a billboard in the front of the store as well. Then, it hit me…what would happen to a teenage girl if she saw a photo that looked just like her? So what would you do if everything you believed about your life could all be a lie? From this little thought came In Another Life, my book coming out in 2019.
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?
