Never Let You Go

Summary: Eleven years ago, Lindsey Nash escaped into the night with her young daughter and left an abusive relationship. Her ex-husband, Andrew, was sent to jail and Lindsey started over with a new life.

Now, Lindsey is older and wiser, with her own business and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When Andrew is finally released from prison, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties and left the past behind her. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded, and her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it’s her ex-husband, even though he claims he’s a different person. But has he really changed? Is the one who wants her dead closer to home than she thought?

My Thoughts:

Mild Spoilers:

At first, I thought for sure this was going to be another domestic abuse story like the movie Enough with Jennifer Lopez. It reminded me so much of it, but there’s much more going on as the story progresses and it was impossible for me to predict where it was going.

We start out with a newlywed couple that in the beginning of the relationship was your typical love story. Soon the wife, Lindsey, begins to see that something is not quite right with her husband, Andrew. He starts drinking and the relationship quickly turns abusive. What complicates it even more is that there’s a child involved, little Sophie.

What can she do? She needs to leave and she can’t figure out how she’s going to do it. So, she drugs him, runs, and the result, something completely bizarre- an accident that will send her husband to prison.

The story from here on out is a guessing game that will leave you bewildered. I just couldn’t figure it out. Just who is the perpetrator here? We have over a handful of characters and everyone is suspicious! I was so positive that this was going to turn into another Gone Girl with the way the story was so unpredictable. By the time I got to the end, I felt the same shock. I had no idea!

I loved this book!

    1. Haha! Glad you found a spoiler sight. You should read it though! it’s totally worth it. ❤ The name change is interesting and that's definitely a big change. I actually like her original name as it's very unique. 😀 Thanks for sharing!

  2. Wow… This sounds great. I have it on the wishlist. I thought abusive husband, same story. Call me a coward, but sometimes I am unable to take abuse in books. Leaves me with an ‘off’ feeling. I had no such problems earlier. Changes… Changes
    I will buy the book soon. I had read another book by her long back about 3 sisters and I felt that was okay.
    Your review was so fabulous making me re-think about buying this

  3. My local librarian suggested Chevy Stevens to me a few years ago and I have read all her books. I really enjoyed this one. I had no idea about her real name Donnalee, I probably would have changed it as well. Nice to see her highlighted.
