IN ANOTHER LIGHT – A.J. Banner (Released October 5th, 2021)
Three years ago mortuary cosmetologist Phoebe Glassman lost her husband in a tragic accident. No longer the hopeful wife and mother she once was, Phoebe is disappearing into her grief and into the quietude of her job—restoring to the dead the illusion of life. Then the body of a woman named Pauline Steele arrives in the mortuary, and for Phoebe, everything changes.
Pauline is unmistakably Phoebe’s mirror image and bears an alarmingly familiar tattoo. Even more startling is that among Pauline’s effects is a faded photograph of Phoebe. Aided by an eccentric colleague, her curiosity sparked, Phoebe investigates her doppelgänger’s life and death—and uncovers surprising clues to a shared past.
Phoebe’s emotional journey soon leads to shocking revelations about those closest to her…and even herself. When she’s driven to the brink, how much of what she discovers can she trust?
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars
It’s been awhile since I’ve read anything by AJ Banner and I forgot how addictive these books can be! IN ANOTHER LIGHT follows Phoebe, a mortuary cosmetologist, a job that I don’t think I could handle. She’s still coming to terms with the tragic death of her husband and daughter and she’s losing herself in her work. Until one day she’s warned her next job could freak her out.
Pauline Steele comes across her table and she could be Phoebe’s twin. The resemblance is uncanny and starts Phoebe on her quest to find out everything she can about this woman. I was so anxious to see what she would find out and if she would actually get the answers she was looking for. Plenty of suspense and mystery for a quick and addictive read!
