Forgiveness of oneself and others who wronged you is a precursor of love. No matter what you believe in, your heart will show you the way. Through all of these, love always prevails.

For me, the above summarizes the strong messages that Healy wants to send through this exhilarating book, her first solo debut as a writer. She used to write with Ted Dekker. Now she has a book that she can call her own. Once in a while, it is nice to read debut novels as it makes you discover other unpolished voices
En serio, amo este libro, pues nunca crei que iba a ser así.
Me sorprendí por la historia, muy interesante e intrigante. Luego, el mensaje es bien claro, pues me hizo pensar mucho, y wooo! me tuvo pegada hasta la última página, y de verdad, valió la pena haber leído este libro :-)

Firstly reading this genre was reading out of my comfort zone. I don't read many books that are suspense. I've also read quite a few reviews that only gave the book a 3 out of 5 so I was a little reluctant. But as they say, never judge a book by it's cover or on a few reviews. I will be honest and say that I was surprised, but I really enjoyed this book.

It was complex and I found it required a lot of concentration to keep up with the twists in the storyline. The level of suspense for me was more

‘We’re all to blame for something.’

The past seven years have been tough for Lexi Solomon: her sister was murdered; her husband deserted her; and she is struggling to make ends meet. Lexi has devoted her life to her daughter Molly. Lexi juggles two jobs and her friend and flatmate Gina helps care for Molly. Life wasn’t easy, but Lexi was getting by. Surviving, but not thriving.

And then, things started changing. Some events and people from the past re-entered her life – and they cannot be ignored

Never Let You Go is one of the most enjoyable books I have read in a long time! I was hooked from page one, and found it to be very suspenseful. The plot revolves around themes of forgiveness and the terrible things that may happen if we continue to hold grudges against those who have wronged us. I highly recommend this book for Christian readers who are fans of suspense.

NEVER LET YOU GO is another gem from Thomas Nelson Publishers that is yes you guessed it…Christian Fiction! I’m continually being surprised by how much I’m enjoying the recent books I’ve read in this genre. I’ve read BURN which was co-authored by Erin Healy. NEVER LET YOU GO is Erin’s first solo book published and I really enjoyed it!

Lexi is a very “real” character. She could very well be people we all know or even one of us. Her druggie husband, Grant, walked out on her seven years ago and ever

The transition from editor and co-author, to an author in your own right, must be a daunting one. Do you sound formulaic? Do you self-edit your work so much that you destroy the natural organic growth of it? Will you clash with your editor? These are all questions that I would imagine that Erin Healy had to grapple with while writing her first solo novel, *Never Let You Go*, published by Thomas Nelson.

Ask any loyal reader of Ted Dekker who Erin Healy is, and they can most likely tell you. Her first independent novel, Never Let You Go, I believe takes her from award-winning editor to an author that should be award-winning as well. Healy definitely knows how to write a page turner. This novel will leave you wondering what is real and what is not, where do the spiritual and physical realms meet? These lines become blurred in the novel as main character Lexi deals with her not so ex-husband’s bad ...more

Never Let You Go was a very interesting book. I have started not reading what the book is about right before I read it so I can go into it with a vague idea, but not an overall idea. I would have read a synopsis when agreeing to review, but sometimes several weeks pass and I don't quite remember what the book is supposed to be about. I did that with Never Let You Go and I was continually surprised with the direction the book went. I think I expected more of a romantic suspense, and you do get th ...more

I've seen this labeled Christian fiction. I found it odd that just because a book quotes scripture, talks about good versus evil, and basic principles of faith and hope, it's labeled as christian fiction. But, that mentioned, I'm not sure what to think of this book. I felt sorry for Lexi. No matter what she did it seemed life was determined to keep her down. It was almost depressing to listen to. Even the ending didn't feel really uplifting. Yes, good triumphed, but it didn't seem like much of a ...more

Reason for Reading: I enjoy Healy's work with Ted Dekker and was excited to read her first solo venture.

This book has two themes. The first is the confession of your sins, *all* of them without holding back and the second and more central theme of forgiving others and not judging them for the sake of our own spiritual well-being. Lexi Solomon has spent the last seven years holding down two jobs to raise her daughter on her own. Life is hard but she has her faith to keep her going. Seven years ag

I was eager to read this book by Erin Healy and she does not disappoint although I did prefer her title Kiss with Ted Dekker better, this was a good story. It isn't until maybe halfway through the book that you realize that this story is the classic good against evil and having faith will help a person through even the worst..
All Lexi wants to do is to live her life with her daughter and just do the best she can. Things do not go as planned though as Lexi is asked to be at a parole hearing for
Earlier this year I read Burn, the novel co-authored by Tedd Dekker & Erin Healy so I was keen to see what Erin Healy's solo debut was like. I read a lot of suspense but not a lot with Christian elements and while these themes are an integral part of the story I didn't find them overwhelmingly so. This book is about choices, good versus evil and the healing power of forgiveness and love, mind you this is all wrapped up in a very supernatural blanket that has the reader questioning what's rea ...more

Erin pulled off a great book intertwining the natural and supernatural. The evil side will steal, kill and destroy while the Good side brings life abundantly, just not necessarily the way you may envision it.

Choices had been made that destroyed a family, leaving Lexi Solomon to raise their daughter alone. Her love for her daughter was her life. Throughout her circumstances, she had hope things would work out. However, when her husband returns and wishes to visit their daughter, the evil side res

A mother's love is a dangerous thing to manipulate. Lexi is such a mother-working two jobs just so her and her daughter Molly can scrape by. With no help from a dead-beat husband who has drug charges on his record, Lexi's life seems to be as difficult as they come. But life has a way of turning difficult into unlivable. An unpleasant surprise form Lexi's past surfaces with incomprehensible demands and things begin to not only turn for the worse but also for the supernatural.

Never Let You Go by Erin Healy is a poignant and frightening look at the harsh consequences of unforgiveness. Lexi Solomon is struggling to make ends meet as a single mom to nine-year-old Molly. When her estranged husband Grant shows up, followed by her drug dealer friend Warden, Lexi's life is suddenly thrown into turmoil, especially when Warren threatens to hurt Molly if Lexi doesn't speak at the parole hearing of her sister's murderer, Norman, in an attempt to get him freed from prison early. ...more

The one bright spot in Lexi’s life is her innocent 9-year-old daughter, whom she has done all that she could to protect from the harsh realities of life. But as other pieces of Lexi’s past begin to barge into her li ...more

For Lexi Solomon, life hasn’t been easy—but now it is about to careen out of control. With the return of her husband seeking a second chance, an evil man out to make her pay, and the man who killed her sister, Lexi’s life is falling apart. And the supernatural is taking a very real role in the crazy events going on in her life. Never Let You Go, while a suspenseful book, is a book with a powerful message about mercy and learning how to finally let go, although the process is long and painful.

Wow! Skin Crawling Suspense, Mystery, Love! Listening to this book on audio c.d. narrated by Ann Harrison was a ride of my life. I was constantly trying to find reasons to go some where by myself so I could listen to this awesome spin chilling book.

At first I was not sure how this book was going to hold my attention, then with out notice it had me by the front of my shirt and drug me into it hook line and sinker. It has all the things a mystery would want. A scary thug, stalker, ex-h

Ok. I had higher hopes for this book... Mostly because the cover said "trust me - one of the best novels you'll read all year". Also, I did read an uncorrected proof advanced reader copy. I really really hope the final book was well edited because there were errors on practically every other page. I especially liked when the character of Norman suddenly became Matthew for a few pages.

What would a mother be willing to do to protect her daughter? Would she betray the memory of her sister? Would she help her sister’s killer? Would she sacrifice herself for her child?

Plot: This was a very spiritual story. You can feel it from the beginning, but it's not confirmed until the end. The things that Lexi goes through in the week that this story takes place are nothing short of divine encounters and spiritual warfare. It's hard to say much without giving anything away.

Characters: You learn about the characters what you need to know for the story to unfold, however, you don't really know the characters.
