Peek Inside The Secret to Letting Go

When Clover Scott arrived 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 Daniel, 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.

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.



Five Stars: "The year has only just now begun but I feel like this is a top candidat for my favorite book of the year." - Nicole Jagusch, Hoffnungswolke
Five Stars: "This book deserves high praise. I literally couldn't put it down and was insisting that I had to finish it before I could get on with my day. You'll laugh, you'll feel like crying--and might actually cry--and you'll have chills. Most importantly, you'll discover a peculiar girl and a broken boy that will steal your heart before you even know you were willing to give it to them." - Moriah Chavis, A Leisure Moment
Five Stars: "I have to say I started reading this book expecting something completely different, while there was romance in this book there was also mystery, and it was like I HAVE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. I just couldn't book this book down. Both the Romance and Mystery in this book was written so well, it wasn't like you got one or the other, they both played well with the story instead of taking away from one another." - Codie, The Reading Worm
Five Stars: "This book is a MUST READ for any fan of YA contemporary romance.It has all the right things to make you fall in love." - CynthiaGarcia, Book Reader Addicts
"I loved everything, EVERYTHING, about this book." - Meghan Varner
Four Stars: "I will say that I loved Clover. She may have been afraid of just about everything, but she was an amazingly strong girl with a huge heart." - Kristi Housman
 Four Stars: "Emotional and genuine, Daniel and Clover's story of young love amidst chaotic circumstances is sure to pull at your heartstrings. Such a fantastic debut YA from this new author! If you're looking for a YA different from the "norm" then you should give The Secret to Letting Go a shot." - Bekah Malik, Will Bake For Books
Four Stars: "The Secret to Letting Go is truly a touching tale of two teenagers that each have had tough times in their past to deal with that somehow end up in each other's lives." - Carrie Glover, CarriesBookReviews
Four Stars: "Overall, I really did enjoy this book and even more than what I was expecting. I'm pretty sure that after this I'll keep Katherine Fleet under my radar because I want to read her next books." - Catia Jorge, The Girl Who Read Too Much

This book left me quite conflicted, I’m not sure if I am completely in love with it but the message is a strong one and it’s quite beautiful, so I’m not even sure how to rate this. I’m also getting ahead of myself, let’s just talk about it first.

Let me start by saying that this book was not what I expected in the least. Maybe I missed parts of the synopsis when I was too busy admiring the gorgeous cover, I don’t know. *shrugs* Somehow I thought I was going into a light YA with a dash of suspense, but what I got was…entirely different.

Beautiful story about love, grief, painful memories, and learning how to live...really live again after experiencing tragedy. It's also about how real love can happen at any age, even when one is a teenager, even when you least expect it to happen.
