Never Let You Go by Erin Healy Review


Losing everything has made Lexi hold those she loves tightly. Hell is determined to loosen her grip.
Lexi lives in the shadow of choices her husband made. Especially Grant’s choice to leave seven years ago, without a word. Her relationship with their daughter, Molly, is now the most important thing in her life. Lexi will do anything—work grueling hours, attend church on her only day off, sacrifice financially—just to see Molly smile.

When Grant shows up declaring his intent to re-enter their daughter’s life, Lexi is skeptical of his motives. She soon determines not to let him near Molly. Then a drug dealer named Warden arrives on Lexi’s doorstep, demanding payment of Grant’s old debts.

But that's just the earthly perspective. Staggering supernatural events are spilling into her world in real and shocking ways. Hell's fury is great, but Heaven's power is greater still. In a novel that defies easy categorization, this has all the early buzz of the breakthrough read of 2010.


 I admit it; I could not put this book down! At first glance I didn’t think that it would be “My type of book”. I occasionally read Christian books, but I was afraid this book would be dull. I was wrong! Never Let You Go was non-stop suspense and action with a little bit of romance tossed in.

Once you get past the first few pages, you are introduced to a character that immediately is an antagonist (Grant). You feel a strong need to know what is going on and you will want to protect Lexi. From this point on, you will be addicted to this book. Never Let You Go is full of surprises; both good and bad. Lexi is struggling to take care of her daughter on her own, work 2 jobs and pay the rent. Once you think that things can’t get any worse for Lexi, they do. I love how Erin Healy tells you little bits and pieces of Lexi’s past and lets you try to guess for yourself what really happened. When you think you may have things figured out, she reveals everything. While this is a Christian book, it is not full of bible quotes and scripture. The Christian theme is more subtle which is the way I prefer it in books.

If you are a fiction fan,  you need to add Never Let You Go to your reading list!
