Never Let Go, by Elizabeth Goddard, is the first book in her Uncommon Justice series. I’ve read Elizabeth Goddard’s books before, but not her full length novels. I was impressed that Never Let Go managed to have the same pacing and feel of her shorter books.
Willow Anderson is reeling from the unexpected death of her grandfather. If that grief isn’t enough, her life begins to turn upside down. Including getting trapped in a fire likely meant to kill her.
Austin McKade, a former FBI agent, is on his way home from a failed protection detail when he gets word that his former girlfriend was nearly killed. Concern over the woman who still holds a piece of his heart dives him to reconnect with her.
Willow isn’t sure about having Austin around. Until she begins questioning the last case her grandfather worked. Are those questions putting her in more danger? Austin thinks so, but Willow determines to make her own decision. A choice that has lasting ramifications.
I liked Never Let Go. As I mentioned earlier, I admired the pacing of the story. It kept moving and unfolding in a way that kept you hooked. I struggled a bit with the plausibility of the beginning, especially Austin’s insistence on helping Willow. However, once the story got underway, I enjoyed it.
If you’d like a story with solid writing and good pacing, definitely check out Never Let Go. And then you’ll want to read book two: Always Look Twice.
