Publication date: March 14, 2017
Eleven years ago, Lindsey Nash escaped into the night with her young daughter and left an abusive relationship. Her ex-husband, Andrew, was sent to jail and Lindsey started over with a new life.
Now, Lindsey is older and wiser, with her own business and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When Andrew is finally released from prison, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties and left the past behind her. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. 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 has he really changed? Is the one who wants her dead closer to home than she thought?
With Never Let You Go, Chevy Stevens delivers a chilling, twisting thriller that crackles with suspense as it explores the darkest heart of love and obsession.
Never Let You Go had so many plot twists…and I loved it. Action after action, creepy happening after creepy happening, I tried my best to figure out what was happening and who the perpetrator was. I failed every time! This was a fast paced book that had me skimming a little bit because I had to know what happened, I had to see if I was right. The only time I was disappointed in the book was at the very end. I was hoping there would be one more twist because I was hoping for a different ending, a different “bad guy,” if you will.
If you love animals, there is a dog in the book and he plays a substantial role in the story! I loved reading about the dynamic between Lindsey and her daughter, and the two women and how they bonded with their dog, who became protector, best friend, and clown.
This family based thriller will have you turning the pages quickly and if you have never skimmed before, you might just begin with this book because it is that suspenseful. Chevy Stevens is a talented writer who knows how to develop and describe characters in such a complete and detail-oriented way…it is impressive. Even the most minor of characters are described so thoroughly.
I highly recommend this book to readers who like mysteries, reading about family dynamics, and strong female characters. Pick up a copy, a glass of lemonade (or coffee!) and get ready to become confused, impressed, sad, glad, moved, and everything in between.
I was given a free Kindle copy of this book by Net Galley and the publisher in exchange for a review. It was my pleasure to read this book and provide an honest review.
