The wind flicks wet hair across her face, and she screws up her eyes against the rain. Weather like this makes everyone hurry; scurrying past on slippery pavement with chins buried into collars.”


I Let You Go was nothing like I had thought it would be... But that was good. I was surprised by the plot, the characters, and all the twists. The book was divided into Part One and Part Two, and I must say: I had misinterpreted the character in the whole of Part One. It was a big surprise when I understood what I'd been reading... It was a nice mind twist, to say the least. I also liked that I got to read from another perspective in Part Two, although it was a little discomforting.

I had some problems with this story, it wasn't all great. The major one being the police investigators' relationship. It really bothered me, and it wasn't a relationship that added to the story. It was completely unnecessary in my opinion. I'm keen to hate relationships like this one.

I had plenty of theories throughout this novel. A lot of theories. (I love when books do that.) And parts of them were correct, I guess, but it was more complex than I had imagined. I ended up liking how it all turned out.

What is it about?

A tragic accident. It all happened so quickly. She couldn't have prevented it. Could she? In a split second, Jenna Gray's world descends into a nightmare. Her only hope of moving on is to walk away from everything she knows to start afresh. Desperate to escape, Jenna moves to a remote cottage on the Welsh coast, but she is haunted by her fears, her grief and her memories of a cruel November night that changed her life forever. Slowly, Jenna begins to glimpse the potential for happiness in her future. But her past is about to catch up with her, and the consequences will be devastating . . .

Have you read this book? What did you think? :)
