I Let You Go: The Richard & Judy Bestseller
About this deal
To be fair, the writing is great, it's the story and charcters that dragged the book's rating down for me. She makes out something about a best friend; a project on space; a new teacher, and she looks down and smiles at his excitement, ignoring the cold that weaves its way through her scarf. However happy our endings – and I firmly believe that Jenna and Patrick will be happy together – they are always tainted to some degree by what has gone before. This thriller started off slow, but towards the end I got so emotionally invested that I actually cried 😭 I was very surprised by the plot twist at the end, and I’m surprised by how dark this book got, trigger warnings for abuse and rape and domestic violence and things like that 😭 here’s the reading vlog where I read it: https://youtu. I stayed up late last night to finish this one - which speaks volumes about how much I was enjoying it, as I value my sleep more than anything else in life!
Sees the dark shadow form beneath his head and hears her own wail as though it comes from someone else. From the chilling and tragic opening, to the very last page, I literally couldn't read fast enough . Jenna moves from the busy hustle and bustle of city life as an artist in Bristol to live in a remote area of Wales. Although Bethan continues to try to develop their friendship Jenna cannot bring herself to become close to anyone again due to what happened in Bristol.I LET YOU GO all begins with an inexcusable crime that leads to an investigative division (with a story of its own) on the hunt. I could feel myself tensing as soon as Slowly, the two storylines begin to merge and what is revealed projects the narrative into the stratosphere. Perched on a kitchen chair next to the sofa, a uniformed sergeant was balancing paperwork on his lap. The pain of a mother, who in a split second let’s go of her son’s hand as he crosses the road, is one that will haunt her for the rest of her life, along with those impacted by this horrific accident.
Jenna Gray's life is forever changed and runs away immediately following the accident to escape the talk of the town. It would be virtually impossible to survive a fall of that nature, and we know from other sections of the book (Patrick’s girlfriend, the father and son canoeists lost at sea, and the experiences shared by the local Detective Inspector) that bodies often take some time to wash up on the coast. We then follow her as she settles into her new life and begins to find happiness in her newly discovered independence. The garden isn’t large, but winter is on its way, and by the time I reach the other side I can’t feel my toes.We feel the reverberations of this tragedy, and watch as our story’s characters struggle to carry its weight. I have found myself becoming less and less tolerant of that situation, and stories that spotlight that angle have become much less attractive to me.
This book was still extremely enjoyable for me regardless of the twists; I always enjoy a book more if it can stand on its own without the gimmicks.Let me go on to say, however, that I am sure my position on this is not the norm amongst psychological thriller fans, and it does not keep me from recommending the novel. Meanwhile, they learn that the police liaison assigned to the boy's mother has fallen short of keeping contact with her.
