Today's review is for
I Let You Go
Author: Clare Mackintosh
This story takes place after a horrible car accident. Jenna Gray ends up in a small Welsh town trying to escape the memory of the accident, and the loss of her child. She meets a few nice people but doesn't ever reveal her past to them. She wakes in nightmares of the accident and can't seem to fully escape. She starts to heal by walking along the beach and taking pictures of words she draws in the sand.
The other part of the story revolves around the Bristol police officers who were on the case of the car accident. They have been searching for a year for the driver who fled the scene of the accident, but the case has gone cold. One officer cannot let it go and continues to search for leads to mkght bring the town some peace.
This was a pretty good book. After reading quite a few duds in a row, I was relieved for finally read a book that I wanted to stay up late to finish. There are quite a few surprises in this book that you don't see coming and I think the story is well written. (well - the author uses the word fortnight a few too many times, but I digress).
The plot twist is worth this book. It takes a while to get there, but I think that is what makes it so good. You are SURE you know where the story is going until.....it turns completely around. I was so intrigued and surprised, and I finished the book in 2 days just because I had to see what the end was going to be.
I encourage you to read this one. It is a mystery, thriller and I promise you won't be disappointed.
