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 was sent to jail and she started over with a new life. Now, Lindsey is older and wiser, with a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her ex-husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she’s cut all ties. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her. 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 can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead closer to home than she thought?

Chevy Stevens targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her—and ratchets up the stakes even more in a novel that explores the darkest heart of love and obsession.

 

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I’ve only read a couple of Chevy’s books- THOSE GIRLS and THAT NIGHT. After seeing the dark places that Chevy took readers in Those Girls, I wasn’t sure what to expect from Never Let You Go, but I knew after reading the excerpt- I had to find out.

What set Never Let You Go into motion is a tale of domestic violence. Lindsey knows that one day her husband will kill her. He’s jealous, possessive and evil. She feels that she is in a rock and hard place because her husband, on the outside, is perfect. He’s helped her family, he loves their child. Only she knows the ticking time bomb that he truly is.

What I liked:

The cover. It’s dramatic and bold.

The subtle shifts in the mystery. The ease of key details being revealed. The fact that there is a mystery in a mystery in a mystery here.

The sucker punch. When a huge key to the story is revealed I said “Holy batman folks!”

 

Bottom line: Lindsey is a character  that was in danger, then safe and now back in danger. She thinks she knows where the danger is coming from- but does she? And that is the appeal of the book- it’s not easy to spot the danger.
