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 absolute loved C.C. Hunter's Shadow Fall series! So when the publishers contacted me to see if I was interested in reading her newest book, I jumped at the opportunity! I cannot wait to see how this book unfolds.
Thank you so much to Wednesday Books for providing me with a copy of this book! Just a quick disclaimer for those reading this review, I have received this book for free. Please note that this does not affect my opinions in any way. All thoughts are my own.
The writing kind of threw me off the book. This was due to the fact that it lacked consistency. We have two points of views that melt into each other which confused me to no end because one minute we are reading from Chloe's perspective and then in the next, with no real break or indication, we are reading from Cash's. The only indication that we have between the two perspectives is that Chloe's is written in first, I and me, and Cash's is written in third, he and his. The lack of consistency made reading the book more difficult than it needed to be. However, this is the ARC so maybe the book goes through some formatting and there might be a more prominent break between the two perspectives.
The plot was interesting. Not only does the premise pull you in but the plot keeps you interested. It is a slow burner which means that there are multiple small events that lead to the pinnacle moment. Hunter does a great job of creating the atmosphere for the climax of the novel. There are always these two contrasting elements. I couldn't put the book down because I desperately wanted to know what was going to happen next.
In the beginning, the characters felt a little flat but as the story progress, so do the characters. The focus of development is mainly put on our two main characters. This means that the side characters who don't necessarily add a lot of value to the plot itself, are suffering. This took away from the overall feel of the story. That being said, I loved the relationship that Chloe and Cash had. I definitely grew an attachment.
Overall, I still really enjoyed this book. The writing was good but the lack of consistency and lack of perspective change affected my reading the most. The plot was well thought out and pulls the reader into the book. The mystery of how this all happens keeps the reader interested. The characters started off flat but gained some substance as the book progressed. I particularly liked the relationship between the two main characters. Thank you so much to Wednesday Books for providing me with a copy of this book!
