|After Nadineís husbandís death, it feels as if she will never find love again. In fact, thatís the last thing she wants. Itís hard enough getting through the anniversary of her loss. At least she has Kane to help her through it.
Kane knows the friendship he has with Nadine is special and doesnít want to jeopardize it. At the same time, itís harder and harder to deny that the feelings he has for her go beyond simple friendship.
When Nadine goes to a psychic in a last-ditch effort to have one more moment with her deceased husband. Will she finally be able to let him go and give Kane a chance to make her happy?
Dee Carneyís writing is evocative, realistic, and driven with a nicely edged humor and a hot, sexy feel. The back and forth in the dialogue between Kane and Nadine made me smile, it was so obvious that they were great friends who had been through so much together that they could each easily finish each otherís sentences. I love reading a book where the characters make me feel as if I could sit down with them for drinks and join in their conversation.
When weíve lost someone we care about, itís natural to want one last chance to be with them, even if we think weíre finally ready to move on with our lives. Ms. Carney handled Nadineís emotional journey with a lot of sensitivity, but also with a bit of a healthy push. While Letting Go is first and foremost a story about two very good friends realizing that what they feel for each other has developed and grown over the years into something more, I appreciated the twist of a sudden loss and the care that went into fleshing those emotions out for the reader, while not making it the sole focus of the book. I also thought the paranormal element was integrated nicely, and fit with the tone of the story. A great read.
