This is a hard choice because I read so many good books last year. If I had to choose one though (only day one and I already want to cheat :P), it would have to be I Let You Go by Claire Mackintosh.
This book just pulls you in right from the get go and you feel like you know what’s happening until the whole plot flips. Not all the characters are who they seem to be and it keeps you reading to find out more. This book would be classified as a thriller as there are many parts that would creep you out if you were in the situation.
Here is a brief synopsis of the book:
“I Let You Go follows Jenna Gray as she moves to a ramshackle cottage on the remote Welsh coast, trying to escape the memory of the car accident that plays again and again in her mind and desperate to heal from the loss of her child and the rest of her painful past.
At the same time, the novel tracks the pair of Bristol police investigators trying to get to the bottom of this hit-and-run. As they chase down one hopeless lead after another, they find themselves as drawn to each other as they are to the frustrating, twist-filled case before them.”
