I have read and enjoyed several of Elizabeth Goddard’s Love Inspired Suspense novels so was pleased to learn that she had been signed by Revell for a series of full length novels. Never Let Go is the first of the Uncommon Justice series and if it is any indication of the books to follow, I will definitely be reading them all.

Put together a forensic genealogist and a former FBI agent who is also an ex-beau and have them work together to solve a cold case and you have the formula for a suspenseful and possibly romantic tale. Naturally the two lead characters Willow and Austin carry around a few secrets as well as major trust issues but it almost seems as though Willow’s grandfather is still playing matchmaker from beyond the grave. The plot is fast-paced and contains the requisite amount of danger, suspense, and major plot twists and surprises to keep most readers happy.

I personally had difficulty putting my copy down because I HAD to know what happened next but I reached the end much too soon. I am eager for the publication of the next book in this exciting series.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by the author and Baker Book House. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.


As a forensic genealogist, Willow Anderson is following in her late grandfather’s footsteps in her quest for answers about a baby abducted from the hospital more than twenty years ago. The case may be cold, but things are about to heat up when someone makes an attempt on her life to keep her from discovering the truth.

Ex-FBI agent–and Willow’s ex-flame–Austin McKade readily offers his help to protect the woman he never should have let get away. Together they’ll follow where the clues lead them, even if it means Austin must face the past he’s spent much of his life trying to forget. And even if it puts Willow’s tender heart at risk.

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.
