Clare Macintosh is an author I have been wanting to read for a while, as a lover of Mystery Thrillers, I have heard great things about her writing and story plots. I stumbled upon I Let You Go while at a charity book fair and grabbed it instantly. It’s been on my TBR trolley ever since, with me continually putting it off, because of the build up I’ve had because of the amount of positive things I’ve heard about her. But I couldn’t wait no longer and added it to my #20BooksOfSummer20 #ReadingChallenge this year, along with a few other books I’ve been continually putting off. So I’m so glad that Nathan picked this book for me to read this week!
I am so thankful to finally have read this book and I was not disappointed!! I knew to expect a twist when it came to Macintoshes books’ (which was one of the reason I kept putting the book off), but this book absolutely took me by surprise. Even going into knowing there was going to be a twist and being on my guard, I was taken completely by surprise. I loved it!!! I was shocked and left thinking WTH and quickly went back and reread some pages. That’s how incredible the writing was and goes to show how your mind fills in so many blanks. However, that ending, the epilogue especially, was unnecessary.
It’s rare to see a book written in a country where I live, Wales, let alone my general area of South Wales, so that was a nice little touch for me. The little mentioning’s of towns and places I recognised was actually really nice and added that little bit of nostalgia to me, especially while being stuck in Lockdown at the moment. Especially when there’s a chunk of time spent at the beach.
I am definitely going to be reading more from Clare Mackintosh if this book is anything to go on!
