I didn't realize until after I finished this book that there was a prequel, The Truth About Faking.  I wish I would have read that book first, I think it would have made The Truth About Letting Go a more powerful read for me.

I liked The Truth About Letting Go.  It was simply written, easy to read, and a good read.  I love a nice contemporary fiction and this book fit the bill.  I read it during a hard time in my personal life and it was nice to have an easy-to-follow read.  Sometimes I like keeping my books contemporary, because I don't have to remember any 'rules' in a paranormal setting.  

I liked the premise of this book, it was a common one and Ashley seemed to follow the natural path of wanting to change her life after a traumatic event.  I thought the conflict resolution was handled well and I was satisfied with that.  The love story was very sweet and was my favorite part of the book.

Overall, I enjoyed The Truth About Letting Go.  It felt a little young for me, so it wasn't one of my favorites, but it was a good read and I would recommend it to fans of contemporary fiction.

  1. Oh, I got this book off NetGalley because I thought that this book could be read as a standalone... Maybe I should read the prequel first...Nice to know that it was an easy read with an interesting romance :)
