NetGalley Review: I Let You Go

I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh (2015-05-07) - Clare Mackintosh

I received this book to give an honest review.

What did I just read and I mean in that in a good way. So I started this book yesterday afternoon, and picked it back up in the middle of the night and finished it this morning. It really had my attention from the get go. So Jenna or as her real name is Jennifer runs away after being involved in an accident that killed a little boy. She lives with the guilt every day along with another secret that hurts her.
She is trying to move on with life though it is very hard to do. We also get an inside on the DI's solving the case and how they don't give up even though the case becomes cold. It just goes to show that hard work and persistence eventually will give you answers. Not only do we read about what is going on with Jenna and her new life but we also get to see what is going on with DI Ray and in his personal life. At times we do switch between different p.o.v.'s.
The author did a great job with the characters and I felt she captured them in a great way, she had their personalty on point to the way they lived their life. Jenna has the guilt of the accident among other things and we see how she closes herself off. With DI Ray we see how he works more rather than be at home with his family and we see how that is taking a toll on his marriage and work.
The twist that is within the story is like a big WOW moment didn't see it coming and even though the pieces starting falling in place I still didn't connect and I loved that. The way it ended to me was perfect it seems a bit mysterious still.
If you want a good thriller that will leave you going what did I read? How did that come about I highly recommend you pick this book up.
Now the only issue I had with the book but I won't mark a rating down is I wanted to know what happened to DI Ray's son fully. We see what he is dealing with but I didn't feel it to be resolved or why his son was acting the way he was. Something minor but it stuck with me.
