Never Let Go by Lori Duffy Foster
Updated: Apr 29
If you enjoyed Shari Lapena’s The Couple Next Door, you’ll love this book. From the opening chapter, with its claustrophobic setting, Never Let Go drew me into the world of a mother whose baby has been stolen during a routine lunch with a friend. Tackling a horrific topic with empathy and insight, this fast-paced thriller kept me engaged through to the conclusion. The multiple points of view connect the main characters, showing how each of them is affected by the disappearance of the child. A subplot adds an element of mystery to the novel while driving the main story forward and creating a sense of immediacy, with an unexpected twist at the end. Once you start this book, you won’t want to put it down. I would love to see a sequel with Sawyer returning to the small town of Maplewood Falls, to investigate another crime.
