I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh picked by guest judge Liberty Hardy:

Turn off your phone and clear your calendar, because you’re going to want to read this sensational thriller in one sitting. Holy cats – what a book! I Let You Go is a clever mystery with compelling characters and a pulse-pounding ending!

A rain-slick street, a speeding vehicle, a mother letting go of her son’s hand for just a second. And in an instant, tragedy falls on a quiet Bristol town when a young life is ended.

A grieving mother is sent reeling by the hit-and-run, her mind replaying the image of him running out into the road. Filled with sorrow and guilt, she flees her home for the solitude of a rundown cottage on a sheep farm in Wales.

A seasoned veteran of the police force, paired up with a young new officer, is sent to find the driver of the car. But there are no clues, and as the months pass by without any leads, they may never discover who the killer is.

And that’s just the beginning! I Let You Go is a tense, multi-layered tale, carefully plotted and fantastically realized. The pain of a parent’s loss, a survivor’s guilt, the police’s frustration with a dead-end case, an unknown killer – all these things are expertly explored and written with precision and empathy.

Part of what makes this story so believable – and what drew me to it – is that Clare Mackintosh was a police officer herself for twelve years. That experience lends an air of credibility to the book, especially the parts involving the Bristol officers’ search for a killer.

I Let You Go is an emotional rollercoaster ride, with reveal after stunning reveal that will shock and dazzle you with its cleverness all the way up to the explosive finale.

(I Let You Go is currently $17.77 on Amazon.) What do you think of the spoiler book for May?

  1. I Let You Go is an amazing book! It’s so good that I was dying to talk about it when I finished and gave it immediately to my best friend. It has the most shocking twist I have ever read!

  2. Yay!!! I look forward to this sub every month sooooo much and, once again, this book doesn’t disappoint!

    This might be a good topic for the discussion forum, but I’ll ask here first – does anyone have any books from prior Book of the Month selections that they absolutely loved? I have a bunch of them already, but I’m always eager to max out my add-ons every month with past favorites. Thanks!!

    • YES!! The Kevin Hazzard book, A Thousand Naked Strangers if you haven’t read that one yet is a MUST READ! It was AMAZING. After I finished it, I gave it to my parents to read, as they are also avid readers. They both equally loved it as much as I did! Out of the almost 20 books I’ve read so far this year, I think it’s the only one I’ve given 5 stars to. 🙂

    • I liked What She Knew, and I just last month got All Things Cease to Appear b/c it sounded good, though I haven’t read that one yet.

    • I loved a Thousand Naked Strangers. Could not put it down. Same with So you have been publicly shamed

    • If you like legal thrillers, The Verdict was really good.

    • Check ebay or Amazon for past months–if you don’t mind used, they are cheaper than the addon price. Also depends on how far back you are looking, but I’ve picked up a few that way.

      Other than the ones mentioned already, I enjoyed Bohemian Gospel and The Magician’s Lie. Station Eleven was pretty good. I’ve also picked up A June of Ordinary Murders, Lacy Eye, After Perfect, Church of Marvels, The Whites, The Watchmaker of Filigree Street, and The Unraveling of Mercy Lewis, but haven’t read yet (stockpiling my summer reading). Just started The Moor’s Account, but too early to tell.

      • I agree with Bohemian Gospel and Magicians Lie. Enjoyed both of those. Although I bought Magician’s Lie on my ereader after seeing it was cheaper that way.

    • The Japanese Lover from December’s selections was great, if you like WWII stuff, All Things Cease To Appear was wonderful. It is not gory horror, but this could happen in real life scary, and No One Knows is a quick read. There are plot holes, but overall it is good.

    • I can’t thank you all enough – I now have a list of books to tack onto my order for the next several months! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I really appreciate everyone taking the time -what a fabulous list…just in time for summer! MSA readers are the best! ?❤️?

    • Flight of Dreams is a good one, too.

  3. Ugh I just signed up again, that book sounds really good!

    • This is not a good week for me on cutting back my subs, instead I added 4 new ones lol

      • Glad I’m not the only one!!! 🙂

  4. What a great choice. Looks like a tough read, me having a 5 year old, but so far I’m sold! I love this sub, it’s by far my favorite!

    • I have 3 year old boys and I am not sure if I could read this!

    • I was thinking the same thing! Being the mother of 2 little boys it took me forever to read What She Knew because it is about the disappearance of a little boy. I don’t think I can do that to myself again, but the book sounds great.

  5. I have been debating this one for a while. Great deal! Just signed up. I go to the library for most of my books so have been hesitating but that’s less than the price of a movie per book!
