Book Review: I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh


Genre: Psychological Thriller

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I’ve came across a lot of good books this month but this one was by far my favorite!  One of my favorite parts of reading thrillers is trying to guess what will happen next.  In some books it’s pretty easy, while others are a complete surprise.  The books that have reveals I don’t see coming usually end up being some of my favorites.  I Let You Go had so many great twists and caught me off guard multiple times.  As soon as I thought I knew what was going on, the author would reveal another clue and completely change the way I viewed both the characters and the story.

The plot centers around the tragic hit and run that takes the life of a young boy.  The story alternates between the police investigation and the woman who leaves everything behind by fleeing to a small town far away from her previous life.  Although I originally thought I understood the woman’s story and what she was feeling, the author revealed twist after twist that made me realize I was completely wrong.

This book was both moving and suspenseful writing at its best.  I felt so bad for some of the characters and the terrible things they went through.  If you’re looking for an emotional read that leaves you guessing right up until the last page, this may be the book for you.
