The Plot (Goodreads):
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 . . .
How did I Let You Go end?
I recently read and reviewed The Last Party by Clare Mackintosh, and I adored it, so I had to read another of her books! While this book didn’t quite live up to The Last Party, it was very enjoyable. The pacing was great, and the first twist caught me off guard. I will say, I noticed something was off in the first chapter and that it didn’t quite feel right, but I couldn’t put my finger on why. When the twist going into part 2 occurred, it all clicked – I thought this was a fantastic twist and was done well. The rest of the story was pretty predictable. I guessed Jenna’s history pretty quickly as well as how the accident may have occurred. There were certainly heavy-handed hints for both of those outcomes.
Ultimately, I would definitely recommend I Let You Go to others who are looking for a mystery with a strong pace and great writing. One solid twist is a success in my book, even though I wish the rest of the book was a tad less predictable.
