minutes ago and I m very impressed I m also very tired as it s now after 5am I will be so very tired today but it is totally worth it I have so many good books that I want to read right now I keep adding to my collection faster than I m reading I ve gotten into a bad habit of reading a couple of pages of new books and forgetting which one I wanted to read next Because of that this novel had

every parent s worst nightmare This psychological thriller had me captivated and I really was unable to put it down until I finished it An emotional plot with a huge twist that snuck right up on me making my heart jump into my throat Completely changed the dynamic of the story and then another twist that I never expected Many great characters that are very well developed Jenna is haunting and felt very authentic as did many of the characters This novel clearly shows how in one moment an unexpected tragedy can occur leaving many people devastated I think I ll stop there as I don t want to give anything away This was such a great debut novel and I m excited to readfrom Clare Mackintosh Highly recommended Jacob, a five year old boy is killed at the start of the novel NOTHING PLEASANT SO FAR Then for the next 400 or so pages we feel nothing for this poor child We never knew him to begin with His death is a shock incident we have no emotional connection with him whatsoever So the story is about who killed him why did the driver hit Jacob and drive away And why the hell after a year, are there no leads about the case And why is it taking so long to tell this story when some of u Jacob, a five year old boy is killed at the start of the novel NOTHING PLEASANT SO FAR Then for the next 400 or so pages we feel nothing for this poor child We never knew him to begin with His death is a shock incident we have no emotional connection with him whatsoever So the story is about who killed him why did the driver hit Jacob and drive away And why the hell after a year, are there no leads about the case And why is it taking so long to tell this story when some of us me , can see the ending in the first 20% of this book A sculptor not sculpting..and a mother without a child NOTHING TOO INSPIRING ABOUT THAT about JENNA Our main character, Jenna, is the sculptor, no longer sculpting and mother without a child Jenna is intended as a sympathetic character.but mostly I found her passive and irritating Her little boy dies yet within three months she is feeling alive drawing her name in the sand, taking photos with her camera on the beach YOU VE GOT TO BE KIDDING FISHY FISHY FISHY She runs away goes off grid throws her cell phone away hides out less that 3 months after her child is killed In 6 months she s happy about a new photography business Odd She is completely out of communication with the police Dept the people who are trying to find HER son s killer They have no idea where she is living or how to reach her for much of the book Jenna s new boyfriend is one hell of a dandy cherry pie, too..The entire plot was implausible.Lots of coincidences unbelievable insane absurd Yucky uninspiring male charactersThe side story of the detectives teenage son showsuninspiring men The author even managed to turned a 12 year old BOY into an uninspiring character He wouldn t win any young male roll model awards that s for sure Throughout the tale, Jenna was constantly referring to her breathing I couldn t catch my breath , my breathing became I felt my breath I m not exaggerating, when I say there were so many references to breathing , it became annoying I know nothing about editingbut I would have caught the breathing authors blind spot , repetitive phrases But it drove me crazy I almost started counting how manytimes I d have to hear Jenna talk about her breathing.Not only did I see the the mystery ending very early into this novel I found it very predictable , but there was so much yuckiness about this novel I didn t feel inspired about myself for having read it.While listening to this audiobook during hikes, soaking in the pool, on car rides to the beach with Paul in the car even Paul figured out the ending by only listening to parts of this book.I kept thinking this is 2016, a contemporary story We need stories about strong female characters not weak ones Shame on me for getting sucked into this book it s nasty There was not one character in this entire book to be inspired aboutA kid is killed hit and runThe police dept Is dysfunctional each with personal problems home problems everyone is a victim.Abuse, violence, lies, cheating, silly boring Yucky is as Yucky is I want my money back 2 stars Bravo Bravo Ms Mackintosh for completely blowing my mind and making me an emotional wreck 4.5 Stars rounded up to 5 5 Stars for phenomenal narration I didn t figure this one out Fantastic book Wonderful audio I can t believe this was a debut This is a hard book to review without giving away spoilers What I will say is that this novel starts out as a simple but devastating crime of hit and run A five year old boy is dead Jenna Gray s life is changed forever She runs off to a sea Bravo Bravo Ms Mackintosh for completely blowing my mind and making me an emotional wreck 4.5 Stars rounded up to 5 5 Stars for phenomenal narration I didn t figure this one out Fantastic book Wonderful audio I can t believe this was a debut This is a hard book to review without giving away spoilers What I will say is that this novel starts out as a simple but devastating crime of hit and run A five year old boy is dead Jenna Gray s life is changed forever She runs off to a seaside town in Wales and begins to start her life over again Then bam A major twist happens in the story and everything changes The book then takes off and twists and turns That s all I m going to say about I Let You Go Stop reading reviews and get this book The only reason I docked this book half a star was because of the pacing in the beginning I thought it was just a tad slow until part 2, but boy did part 2 make up for part 1 Highly recommended to fans of psychological thriller mystery books
