I Let You Go by: Clare Mackintosh

“Gradually, without my noticing, my grief has changed shape; from a raw, jagged pain that won’t be silenced to a dull, rounded ache I’m able to lock away at the back of my mind.”

“But sometimes there aren’t any answers. Sometimes shit just happens, and you have to deal with it in the best way you can.”

“My steps feel lighter now and I realize it’s because I’m running toward something, and not away from it.”

“Such a small impact on the world, yet the very centre of my own.”


In a split second, Jenna Gray’s world descends into a nightmare. Her only hope of moving on is to walk away from everything she knows to start afresh. Desperate to escape, Jenna moves to a remote cottage on the Welsh coast, but she is haunted by her fears, her grief and her memories of a cruel November night that changed her life forever.

Slowly, Jenna begins to glimpse the potential for happiness in her future. But her past is about to catch up with her, and the consequences will be devastating . . .


I Let You Go is a book we have wanted to read for quite some time and with Clare Mackintosh newest book Let Me Lie (out 3/13/18) we wanted to start at the beginning. I’ll be honest I thought they were a series (opps). We don’t regret starting this book one bit! I Let You Go was breathtaking. I couldn’t stop this book once I started it & I finished it in less than 24 hours. Told from 2 POV Jenna’s and Ray’s. Both stories told with such depth and complexity that it sucks you in with every twist, surprise and development. Not only do you get to know the main characters but you get a feel for every person they come in contact with. Clare Mackintosh is a gifted author who has a gift for psychological thriller/detective story. I can not wait to start I See You.
