Whatever you do, don’t bypass the prologue. The prologue thrusts you into the middle of the action and builds immediate suspense. The tension doesn’t let up until the end of the book. A crime is committed when the unthinkable happens. A newborn is abducted from the hospital.
That alone should pique your interest. Years pass and none of the investigators the mother hired produced any results. The mother refuses to believe her daughter is dead. She never stops searching for her baby.
Willow Anderson works as a Forensic Genealogist with her grandfather’s business, Anderson Consulting. Her grandfather was murdered after he agreed to investigate the kidnapping of an infant over twenty years ago. Before his death, he asked Austin McKade, a private investigator, to assist with the case. Willow must continue the search for her grandfather, but she’s frustrated when Austin shows up.
Without giving away too much of the story, Willow and Austin struggle with a past relationship that didn’t work out, causing more tension. But now that Willow’s grandfather had involved Austin in the case, the two must join forces and work together in order to search for the missing girl.
Willow’s life is threatened when she receives warnings to stop the search, which makes her even more determined to see it through. She must fulfill her grandfather’s wishes regardless of the risks.
All the unexpected twists in Never Let Go will keep you guessing who killed Willow’s grandfather and who is determined to stop Willow and Austin.
