Let Her Go by D.J. Adamson is a murder mystery and the third book in the Lillian Dove mystery series. Just before Christmas, Lillian Dove, a recovering alcoholic who, strangely, owns a liquor store, finds Doctor Conrad smothered in blood in front of his house. His wife has been murdered, his son is badly injured and his daughter is missing. Doctor Conrad comes under suspicion and Lillian decides to help the detective in charge, Jacque Leveque, find Peyton Conrad – she is the key to the murder and the main witness. Lillian uncovers more than she expects and it becomes imperative that Peyton is found before it’s too late.

Let Her Go by D.J. Adamson is a fantastic, gripping story of betrayal, love, and suspense, not to mention the murder. I have not read the first two books in the series but there was enough backstory about the main protagonist for me to understand her and get to know her easily. That said, some of that backstory made me want to read the previous books. Let Her Go is written in quite a dark tone with plenty of action and some humor to lighten it a little. The plot is well written, descriptive, and leads you places you don’t expect to go. There are plenty of clues along the way but you are going to guess the ending of this story; just enough is given to hook the reader, not enough for the plot to become clear straight away. Lots of intrigue with great characters and a fantastic plot. Recommended for mystery lovers everywhere.
