5 STAR REVIEW: I let you go by Clare Mackintosh

I let you go


A tragic accident. It all happened so quickly. She couldn’t have prevented it. Could she?

In a split second, Jenna Gray’s world is shattered. Her only hope of moving on is to walk away from everything she knows to start afresh. Desperate to escape her past, Jenna moves to a remote cottage on the Welsh coast, but she is haunted by her fears, her grief and her memories of the cruel November night that changed her life for ever.

DI Ray Stevens is tasked with seeking justice for a mother who is living every parent’s worst nightmare. Determined to get to the bottom of the case, it begins to consume him as he puts both his professional and personal life on the line.

As Ray and his team seek to uncover the truth, Jenna, slowly, 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

My Review

Firstly I would like to thank Little, Brown UK and Net Gallery for sending myself a copy for an honest review.

Within the first few pages I was just totally spellbound by this book. I cannot believe this was a debut by this author as it was just utterly brilliant. Her knowledge of the law and criminal law was fantastic (this of course was from being on the right side of the Law).

The twist in this book was just SHOCKING (in a good way) and had me shouting WHAT!!!!!!! I just did not see it coming.

Please please don’t try and guess this twist and ruin it for yourself. It is in my top 10 of best book twists.

This book is part of Richard and Judy Book Club 2015 and deservedly so.

5 of 5 stars
