Never Let You Go

Book: Never Let You Go
Author: Chevy Stevens

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?-Goodreads

Revew: This was a page turner. Told in alternating timelines, we follow Lindsey as a newly married young woman whose husband turns into an abuser. She struggles to deal with her violence and come up with a plan for escape. In present day, Lindsey is living on her own with her teenage daughter, running a cleaning business and trying to avoid the fact that her ex-husband is about to get out of prison. We also follow her daughter, who secretly establishes contact with her father, against her mother's wishes. 

Although the daughters actions were very frustrating, I can see how a teenager who behave like that. I figured out the 'twist' and while the reasoning was a little thin, I couldn't put this one down. 

Grade: 3/5
