This week’s Friday Read comes direct from the slopes of the French Alps, as commissioning editor, Lucy, recommends Never Let You Go:
My pick for this week’s Friday Read is Chevy Stevens’ latest psychological thriller, Never Let You Go. The story is told from two perspectives: Lindsey Nash and her teenage daughter. Eleven years ago, Lindsey ran away into the night and left her abusive husband behind. She started a new life and her ex-husband ended up in jail. But now he’s been released – and Lindsey can’t help but feel her nightmare is starting all over again. Never Let You Go is dripping with tension and will keep you on the edge of your seat from the first page to the last. It’s an emotional read too, as Chevy deftly explores the damage an abusive relationship can cause and the courage it takes to escape one. I gasped, I cried and I probably swore a bit too – because, like all the best suspense novels, there’s a twist that comes out of nowhere and knocks you senseless. I can’t recommend this enough.
