Romantic Suspense Book Review: Never Let Go
Publisher's Description"As a forensic genealogist, Willow Anderson is following in her late grandfather's footsteps in her quest for answers about a baby abducted from the hospital more than twenty years ago. The case may be cold, but things are about to heat up when someone makes an attempt on her life to keep her from discovering the truth.
Ex-FBI agent--and Willow's ex-flame--Austin McKade readily offers his help to protect the woman he never should have let get away. Together they'll follow where the clues lead them, even if it means Austin must face the past he's spent much of his life trying to forget. And even if it puts Willow's tender heart at risk.
In this fast-paced and emotional page-turner, bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard keeps the stakes high, the romantic tension sparking, and the outcome uncertain until the very end."
My Review4.5 Stars
Never Let Go, by Elizabeth Goddard, is a fast-paced reading adventure! This first book in the Uncommon Justice series offers a thrilling mix of mystery, suspense, action, faith, and romance. From start to finish, this novel is truly entertaining and utterly intriguing.
Descriptive and real, the mountainous Wyoming setting enriches the plot and contributes to the authentic feel of the story. The vibrant characters also make this book special. They are relatable, likable, smart, and interesting. The engrossing plot of the novel is thoughtfully detailed and thoroughly engaging wrapping the reader in the thoughts, feelings, and motivations of the characters themselves. Like fallen leaves on a rugged trail, the themes of adversity, faith, perseverance, and restoration add depth and beauty to a riveting story that uplifts while it also entertains.
Never Let Go offers more than a story of romance and suspense. It also shines with an emphasis on honesty, forgiveness, and second chances. As the characters grapple with difficult and dangerous events, they also search for wholeness, purpose, and meaning within their mistakes and choices. Their faith and trust grows stronger as they discover that true security is found in the promises of God and in the love and support of friends and family.
With its integral setting, perceptive characters, and gripping plot, Never Let Go easily held my attention page after page. Ms. Goddard is a talented author with a genuine gift for compelling story-telling. Never Let Go is a book I can easily recommend to all readers who enjoy clean, suspenseful, romantic fiction, and I am eagerly looking forward to reading the next book in the series!

My ReflectionThroughout Never Let Go, the characters struggle honestly with the consequences of their choices, their mistakes, their expectations, and their insecurities. They bravely pursue the answers to tough questions, and they fight desperately to grasp the healing and the hope that might be found on the other side of their heartbreak. But it is within that search for hope and healing that the significant themes of this novel manage to encourage and inspire. The characters persevere. They carry on. They accept help when needed. They seek forgiveness and purpose. And in so doing, they become an inspiration, and their story becomes one of encouragement and hope. They show that even though life can be very hard, and trials and difficult circumstances can befall anyone, God’s strength, grace, and forgiveness are always available to make the process of healing and restoration possible.
