Letting Go: A Novel (Thatch)
After the tragic loss of her fiancé Ben two years prior, Grey is set to graduate from college and begin the life she thought she would be sharing with her husband. Instead, she is moving back to her hometown and at a loss of how to go forward. It is only her childhood friend Jagger who manages to give her a reason to keep moving. Jagger too has returned to their small town hoping not only to move on, but to see if Grey has a place in her heart for the man that has been in love with her since the age of thirteen. But there are far more hurdles to clear than just getting over Ben’s death; there are forces in the small town that seem intent on keeping the two apart.
Letting Go is an emotional roller coaster of angst that fans of New Adult fiction will enjoy. The storyline, with its secrets and lies, will keep you guessing until the end. While well-developed, the immaturity of the characters, a trait typical of this genre, was a little grating, but in the end, it was an enjoyable read.
