I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh

A tragic accident. It all happened so quickly. She couldn't have prevented it. Could she?
In a split second, Jenna Gray's world descends into a nightmare. Her only hope of moving on is to walk away from everything she knows to start afresh. Desperate to escape, Jenna moves to a remote cottage on the Welsh coast, but she is haunted by her fears, her grief and her memories of a cruel November night that changed her life forever.
Slowly, Jenna begins to glimpse the potential for happiness in her future. But her past is about to catch up with her, and the consequences will be devastating . . .
Clare Mackintosh spent twelve years in the police force, including time on CID, and as a public order commander. She left the police in 2011 to work as a freelance journalist and social media consultant, and now writes full time. She is the founder and director of Chipping Norton Literary Festival, and lives in the Cotswolds with her husband and their three children.
Review: I read 'I Let You Go' on the promise of 'that twist'. Of all the possible plot shocks I was imagining, I could never in a million years have guessed what it was going to be. When it was revealed, I actually had to re-read a few times to check I'd got it right! This psychological thriller is the best I've read in a very long time. The characters are deep and complex, the story line steam rollers you and you'll finish the book still reeling. Highly recommended!
