Wow! A great tension filled story that kept me on the edge of my seat.
Years ago, Lindsey Nash escaped with her young daughter and left an abusive relationship. Her ex-husband, Andrew, was sent to jail and Lindsey started her life over. Fast forward a few years – Lindsey has her own business and a teenage daughter. When Andrew is released from prison, Lindsey gets the sense that someone is watching her. She is convinced it’s her ex-husband, even though he claims he’s a different person. But is he really?
This book was excellent from beginning to end (almost … I’ll explain in a minute). The story is well written and nicely paced. The plot twist fantastic! It was one I did not see coming. Stevens does an excellent job of making you think it could be this person. Or this person. Or this person! But after the reveal the story fell flat. There was this great tension all the way through the book. However, when Lindsey figures out who is behind the mysterious events, the action fizzled and left this reader feeling something was lacking. It should have been a moment that made me feel as if I were at the edge of a cliff, but my heart didn’t beat faster, nor did I gasp out loud. It just was and it disappointed me. This is one of those times when I wanted something more from the book but can’t put into words what that was. Despite that, you need to read this book. The ending may have lacked something for me, but maybe it will cause your heart to flutter and your breathing to come in short gasps. Never Let You Go will make an excellent addition to your mystery/suspense/thriller TBR.
Thank you St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley for the advanced copy of this book.
