One summer can change everything...

Haunted with guilt after his girlfriend’s death, Daniel Hudson has no interest in committing to anyone. At the end of the summer, he’ll be leaving Florida for a new start in college. If only he could avoid the mysterious new girl in town, who seems every bit as naive and eccentric as she looks. Trouble is, she’s hard to ignore, with her beautiful piercing eyes, pitiful-looking dog, and unsettling tendency of finding trouble.

Clover Scott lived her whole life off the grid and arrives on the Gulf coast in search of her grandparents. She never expected to nearly drown, or get caught in a hurricane, or fall in love with the boy who rescues her. Now, she has a chance to rewrite her life’s story, to finally fit in somewhere, but Daniel wants answers about her past. When the police start asking questions about the disappearance of her parents, she must make a choice: go to jail or confess her secrets—even if they might destroy her chance at a happily-ever-after.

The 411:

Daniel can’t stop thinking about Clover, the mysterious new girl in town. He’s drawn to her and wants to help her. As Daniel and Clover get to know each other, we find out more about Clover’s past and the reason for Daniel’s inability to commit. We also learn the power of friendship.

What We Loved:

The whole idea for this story was intriguing and sweet. We loved Clover’s character and the expression of the power of friendship. We especially loved Clover’s relationship with Daniel’s grandmother. It made us miss one of us really miss her grandmother ♥

Heart Border

Um...Not So Much:

We definitely needed more swoon. We got why Daniel and Clover were drawn to each other but as for a sweeping romance? We didn’t buy it.

Heart Border

Bottom Line:

An unexpected look into how dealing with grief can shape a person, The Secret to Letting Go is fast-paced and sweet.
