Eleven years ago, Lindsey Nash escaped into the night with her young daughter and left an abusive relationship. Her ex-husband, Andrew, was sent to jail and Lindsey started over with a new life.
Now, Lindsey is older and wiser, with her own business and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When Andrew is finally released from prison, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties and left the past behind her. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded, and her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it’s her ex-husband, even though he claims he’s a different person. But has he really changed? Is the one who wants her dead closer to home than she thought?
With Never Let You Go, Chevy Stevens delivers a chilling, twisting thriller that crackles with suspense as it explores the darkest heart of love and obsession.
Let me invite you in the mind of Orsayor L. Simmons for a few minutes. When I pick up a mystery/suspense book – I automatically go in Columbo mode and try to solve the mystery before the end of the book. If my assumptions are proven correct at the end of the book – I tend to put that book in my book closet, not my book shelf.
*FYI – Columbo was an American television series starring Peter Falk as Columbo, a homicide detective with the Los Angeles Police Department.*
Never Let You Go is the upcoming release by Author Chevy Stevens. The novel centers around Lindsey who left her abusive alcoholic husband after enduring years of mental, emotional, & physical abuse. After a series of events – Lindsay is convinced that her ex-husband is back to cause havoc in her life. She will do anything to keep she and their daughter, Sophie safe from all harm. It’s been over ten years since she has laid eyes on her ex-husband, so she doesn’t know what to expect from him.
Is he planning to harm her? Does he want to take their daughter away from her? Or even worse? Kill her.
The story is told from alternative voices of Lindsay and her daughter, Sophie and it also flashes back from the past to present. Never Let Go is a very fast-paced read. Author Chevy Stevens does an excellent job of creating characters that grab hold of the reader’s attention until the very last page. There are so many twists and turns in this book – it kept my eyes glued to each page.
There were so many scenarios running through my mind as I read this book. Just when I thought I knew who to hate – she slid something else in the equation that made me go back to Square One.
EVERYONE is a SUSPECT!
I give Author Chevy Stevens a standing ovation for keeping keeping me on my toes. I’m still recovering from a horrible Reading Slump and this book energized every reading muscle in my body. I know that may sound dramatic, but to an avid reader – a reading slump is traumatic.
Every time I open a book or turn on my Kindle – I long to have the amazing feeling that I felt after reading Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens. For the life of me, I don’t know why my bookshelf isn’t full of books written by Chevy Stevens.
