    In this fast-paced and emotional page-turner, bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard keeps the stakes high, the romantic tension sparking, and the outcome uncertain until the very end.

    Do you ever pick up a book and from the first page you know it’s going to really good? Well, Never Let Go, book one in Elizabeth Goddard’s new Uncommon Justice Series is one of those books. The opening scene is so powerful that you can’t stop reading before the scene ends. And then, when you finish the opening, Godda

    Lately, I have been on a bit of a mystery buzz, and in the past, I had gone off ECF type books as they just seemed to be the same story over and over again. I had never read any of this author's before, but it had captured my attention as featured the case of a baby who was abducted via hospital when it was a few hours old over twenty years ago. Katelyn Mason had just given birth only to have her baby stolen from her; she spent many years searching but eventually ended up as a cold case with the ...more

    I really enjoyed this book. I loved the action and fast pace. It combines romance, action and suspense to make a great combination. I also love how the characters developed in the book.

    Willow Anderson is a forensic genealogist who worked alongside her grandfather. When he was killed, Willow picks up the pieces of their business and begins to work the last case her grandfather was working on. She finds herself in danger almost immediately and barely survives.

    This latest thriller from Ms. Goddard is a new suspense must-read! Willow Anderson is a forensic genealogist who works with her grandfather. At the beginning of this book, her grandfather has recently died and she begins looking into his active cases. There is only one case he is working on- an infant kidnapping from twenty years ago. After Willow’s life is threatened, she is determined to solve the case. Before he died, Willow’s grandfather had contacted her ex, Austin, for his assistance on th ...more

    Never Let Go by Elizabeth Goddard is a thrilling romantic tale. One that kept me reading all night long. Suspense, mystery, and romance all wrapped into one book. I was fascinated from the first few pages. Intrigue hit me hard. Who was the woman that stole a baby from another woman and why? These questions only fueled my hunger for more. Then there was the mystery video that the main protagonists watched. Her grandfather had a video of a woman needing to find her lost baby girl. Just as the myst ...more

    "Never Let Go" is a romantic suspense novel. Unfortunately, the story just didn't work for me. Austin deals with emotional trauma in his past by ignoring it. Willow can't help but dig up a person's past. This is given as the reason their relationship didn't work, so it should be great once Austin starts sharing about his past. Except her lack of trust is still a major issue. It's things like her asking (or agreeing) that he should leave, then feeling devastated that he's abandoning her (which he ...more

    This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.

    I enjoyed the book as it rolled out an old child abduction case and brought Willow back into touch with her ex, Austin. The book is more mystery with a bit of romance thrown in.

    Willow and Austin parted ways when Willow told him that she could not be in a relationship with a man that kept secrets. This had Austin walking away, as he did not want his past brought up. I was a little bit confused because if he was embarrassed by his past and thought it

    The heroine is a forensic genealogist, and I enjoyed learning more about this unusual profession. Most of the story takes place in the Grand Teton area of Wyoming, a place I've never been. The setting almost becomes its own character. Besides all that, the story is a thrilling page-turner with a compelling premise.

    I liked the premise of the story. I just found it very hard to get in to. The two main characters were constantly reflecting on their feelings and their past and possibly renewal of said relationship. I found it tedious at times. I think I would have enjoyed the story more with details about the case being front and center. I received this complimentary copy from netgalley for my honest review.

    "People tend to look for a needle in a haystack . . . . . . . When all they need is one good thread . . "

    Forensic genealogist Willow Anderson is used to looking for "needles" and "threads"; knowing that the most obscure detail could morph into the missing piece of a client's puzzle. But following the tragic death of her grandfather, the founding member of Anderson Consulting, Willow isn't sure that she wants to continue the legacy of excellence that J.T. began. Her heart wasn't in it, .

    Never Let Go is the first book in a new inspirational suspense series by new-to-me author Elizabeth Goddard. While the synopsis for Never Let Go was intriguing and the prologue had me hooked, I sadly lost interest in this story as it progressed. Introspection heavy, the characters spend a lot of time thinking and then rethinking things, making it hard for me to stay focused on the story. While I am sure some readers will love this book with its mix of tension, second-chance love story, and compl ...more

    Holy wow! If you are looking for a fast paced, emotional mystery look no further! You get all that and more in this amazing story. You think you figure out what is going on, but that's not always the case. I can't say enough about this story to do it justice. All I can say is read and you won't be disappointed!

    Thanks to Netgalley for an advanced copy of this book for an honest review

    I did like the mystery of the missing child and the twists and turns leading to finding the kidnapper. But, I was not too fond of Willow and Austin. Too much thinking and not enough dealing with reality. There were no bad words or sex which means I can recommend this book to my customers who do not like a lot of sex in their books.
