Chosen, A Novel, by Chaundra Hoffman - Review

Color me happy, I read a book!

Thank you Jocelyn @ Kelly and Hall.  I really enjoyed this book.  I read it in a week or so.  I looked forward to reading it each night.  It is about Chloe who works for an adoption agency placing newborns with adoptive parents.   It is an interesting book with a bit of drama when a child ends up missing.  It gives a glimpse into the lives of the adoptive parents, the birth parent(s), and the life of Chloe in the middle of it all.  It read a little bit like a  Jodi Piccoult novel, and I say that loosely because I don't think the writing was the same.   But the writing was enjoyable and flowed well.   I would recommend the book and the author.  I found the characters real to life and I enjoyed the Portland, Oregon setting.  I enjoyed the drama without tears.  I also was happy the book was a quick read and wasn't cluttered up with a bunch of writing for the sake of writing.  If you know what I mean.

Hope you have a chance to check this one out.
