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.
Having enjoyed Still Missing and Those Girls, I was really looking forward to this book. At first, I did struggle to get into this story, but I suspect that was more to do with stuff going on in my own life at the moment, and me being tired and distracted. Once I did get into the story though, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Never Let You Go focusses on domestic abuse and the impact it has on those involved. I loved reading the story from both Lindsey’s and her daughter, Sophie’s point of view. I especially felt for Sophie and her desire to know her father, despite what he had done.
I did work some things out about half way through, so I perhaps experienced less of a surprise. However, I still found the ending very tense and exciting. This is another great thriller by Chevy Stevens.
