I received a copy through Kindle Scout. First of all I just want to say that I follow the author on Facebook and she cracks me up on a daily basis. Her sense of humor, although a bit odd, is refreshing and original. I can understand why she writes the way she does.

Let Her Go does not disappoint. The addition of the 8 Point Buck in the plot is a bit out there, but I honestly find that it fits with the story. Being an Upstate New Yorker myself I can understand The frustration that Morgan Sullivan

The writer keeps you wanting more from the time you start reading until your on the last page. Then you don’t want the book to end.

I was asked to read and review “Let Her Go” by M.R. Pritchard. I’ve read two other books by her and loved them so I jumped at the chance to read another for review. I love romances; they’re my favorite genre to read. This story was a quick and easy read with a dash of whimsy with a mysterious deer. I really liked Nick’s character. He’s the big, bad ass, good looking, guy with a soft heart that I love to read about. The story itself was okay. It held my attention but didn’t get me overly excited. ...more

I'll start out by saying that I really enjoyed this book. It made me cry, it made me smile, and held my attention all the way through, which is not an easy thing for me as I get bored fairly quickly. This book is about Morgan, the less attractive, less loved sister who can't believe her luck when she meets and marries gorgeous, sweet Alex. Her happiness quickly fades after he loses his life in a tragic accident. To deal with her grief Morgan takes up jogging. She also winds up getting closer to ...more

Wth did I just read? I feel like I need to pinch myself and make sure I haven't been abducted by a gang of talking marshmallows with pitchforks. No kidding! I shit you not!

This is the weirdest, most nonsensical book I've ever read in my entire life!

Where the hell to even start?

She's Invisible... I got it the first 100 times.

The female MC is very self-depreciating, woe is me. Yes, her parents are asses and I get that she's been put down her entire life, but I can get her emotional standpoint

4 STARS. ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

Morgan Sullivan has always been seconded throughout her entire life. She was the unwanted one, the unexpected one. Growing up being ignored and criticized so harshly by her mom -- who doted on her beautiful twin sister -- she became a girl full of insecurities and horrible opinions of herself. Her sister was the beautiful, athletic talented one and boys sought her out. It all became a lot worse when her sister died. So when a male finally showed an interest in her and proposed

Contemporary romance is not my preferred read, but I don't mind it now and again, and this book is pretty much a perfect example of the genre without being at all derivative. There are many unique elements in the story of Morgan's journey to finding love again.

Pritchard has a way of writing here that affected me on a physical level - reading about Morgan going on her runs that could be both punishing yet therapeutic made me feel like throwing on some sneakers and hitting the road myself (don't

What a sweet story, although there are so many heart-breaking moments. I know what it feels like to be the not-as-pretty sister, the one who's less popular and hides in the background, so I can empathize with Morgan. The feeling of self-doubt and worthlessness that a smile or kind word can ease, if only for a moment. A touching story about coming to terms with who we are. And... I love the deer and all the nasty things it does to the neighbors... and deservedly so.

I really liked this book and would have given it a 4 star review if I had not felt like somethings were left unresolved. I wish we had been given more insight into Alex. Why did he keep his wealth a secret? What made him fall in love with Morgan? Did he ever talk to Nick about her? I feel like discussing Alex more would also have given more depth to Morgan and Nick.

I'm a winner of this book through GoodReads First Reads Giveaways.


Morgan Sullivan has felt like the least important person in the world her entire life; overshadowed by her twin sister Tori, even after her sister's death as a teenager, and deemed herself unlovable by any wonderful man... until she met Alex, who she agrees to marry after two weeks of knowing him. She doesn't understand why a guy like him would want a woman like her. After being married for a few years, Alex dies in a motorcycle a

A tale of loss and live that is tough to let go…

If you’ve ever lost anyone dear to you, the world becomes your enemy, time both your bane and you salve and everything around you crystallizes into either a ritual that enables you or an enormous, relentless irritant that drives you bad into the darkness. The beauty of M. R. Pritchard’s, Let Her Go, is the way the author frames her wounded characters with this bi-polar world. She roughens them, wears them down and lets the reader share in their pai

Brilliantly flawed characters

Grief and pride keep things prickly between Nick and Morgan for the longest time. Their partnership moves along in awkward fits and starts as each struggles with their inner demons and emotional baggage. People pressure them

The only thing I'm sure about with this book was that the heroine's parent's needed b*tchslapping and she needed some therapy. I hated that her father never shared her mother's illness and left the heroine to deal with the treatment she received alone and unsupported.

I hated that her husband never trusted her to share his situation. And his parents - that was just beyond belief weird.

The romance, such as it was, was built gradually and was nice, but the twist that was added to it, was unnecessar

Truly Spellbinding

The reader-discovered novels of the Kindle Scout program are like a box of assorted chocolates. While there’s a wide variety to choose from, they are all wonderfully satisfying. M.R. Pritchard’s “Let Her Go” is no exception.

Yes, there is romance in this story. But “Let Her Go” delves deeper than that. There are moments that will tug at your heartstrings, moments that will make you laugh, and moments that will have you celebrating the power of love. This is a story with soul.

Having always wondered what it would be like to have a twin, this book drew me in from the beginning. Pritchard delves deeply into the inferiority complex that Morgan has dealt with her entire life. Since Morgan has always felt unwanted, unloved, and invisible, she isn't able to enjoy or even fully accept what should be her happily ever after. I couldn't help but root for Morgan as she struggled to deal with the tragedies in her life. She's the ultimate underdog, and I very much wanted things to ...more

Let Her Go is a first person account of a young woman's grappling with her life's very tragic events. I personally love reading first person if it is well done -- and Pritchard certainly does a stellar job -- because I learn so much about the character. In this story Morgan Sullivan so resonated with me that the entire book was like a subsonic wave, vibrating my bones. Truly beautiful. I wanted to stop by and give the author five stars, my congratulations, and also my thanks. This book really me ...more

I love books that will pull you in and Morgan's story did that for me. She's the nurse that I thought I would be as a child. I haven't followed that career concept but it's exciting to think about and maybe it will happen. I cried when she lost Alex, felt her agony about using her cell phone and social media. Her anger at the deer, I completely agreed with, but I thought half way in about Natasha asking Morgan to call her once Morgan figured out what Alex was reincarnated as. It made me cry. Thi ...more

I received this book as an ebook free through Kindle Scout in exchange for an honest review. This is a contemporary romance novel about love, loss, relationships, family, tragedy and rediscovering life. The characters are fully developed with secrets and demons that whet the reader’s interest. The author writes in a way that makes the reader feel a full range of emotions. This is a book about life and all that it can throw at a person, how people struggle to move on and let go in the end. ‘Let H ...more

I thought the book was great. Couldn't understand until towards the end of the book, why the book was titled, "Let Her Go" instead of "Let Him Go", since main character, Morgan couldn't come to terms with her husband's sudden death. A few twists and turns that makes you wonder, yes we have free will to decide what path to take, but it seems inevitable that some folks are in your life regardless. Don't want to give away any spoilers, but appears that she was destined to meet Nick.

Heartwarming

I received this book free for a kindle scout nomination on Amazon. I loved it. Alex's death is heartbreaking. I was so sad for Morgan. She had so much loss in her life. So did Nick. After a long battle they end up with their hea. I really enjoyed that two broken people helped to fix each other.

Of what I expected

This is a really good book. I was expecting it to be about the death of a sister. It however was more complicated than that. It was a about the loss of a husband. The tangled relationship with her less than loving mother. It is about falling in love again. Learning to accept herself. I would recommend this book for those who love a happy ending.

Let her go

I hate the ending.... let me clarify that, I hate that it ended! Loved this book, I fell in love with Morgan and Nick. Theirs was a messed up relationship, but as you read you come to understand their hearts. Even loved Bucky, and his mysterious ways. Loved how the writer put the story line together, get the tissues out, you'll need them.

Simply Amazing

Saying that I could not put Let Her Go down would be an understatement. I read the entire book in one sitting. M.R. Pritchard, writes in a manner that makes you feel and fall in love with the characters. The love and tragedy become your own. Highly recommend.

I received a free copy of this book from Kindle Scout.

This was my first book from this author. Morgan is the main character who seems to have so much going against her. She lives with regrets and what-ifs plague her. She has "self" issues but fixes other broken people. I had a hard time connecting with her, not because of her plight, but because of her "woe is me" attitude and whining. I liked Nick's character and his inward tenacity. This book would have been emotional, had I connected with Mor
