MauriKansasAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Just Let GoAugust 2, 2019MauriKansasAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a story of long held brokenness and the importance of letting go of the hurt and learning to forgive with God's help. Quinn's mother left their family when she was a young girl, never contacting them again. Now twenty years later, Quinn still carries that hurt and has never traveled beyond her hometown of Harbor Pointe, Michigan. She lives for routine and doesn't try many new things, though she has just purchased the flower shop that had been her mother's and where she has worked for years. Grady is an Olympic skier who has a reputation for wildness, not listening to coaches, but that isn't working for him now. Dissenters are saying he's washed up and should retire. Driving through Michigan, Grady stops at a diner in Harbor Pointe, and doesn't react well to a local jerk who disparages him. Grady is sentenced to five weeks of community service. Quinn and Grady can't stand each other at first but as they work together, they have much to learn from each other and from Quinn's family and friends. This is a very good contemporary romance that I enjoyed very much.

Courtney Walsh delivers another emotional blockbuster! The kind that keeps a reader awake into the wee hours of the morning wrestling with love and loss and all the other complicated stuff life brings our way. This author knows how to keep it real but no matter how messy it gets, she always shines the light of Christ into the darkest places.
Phew! Be prepared to be uncomfortable. To want to throttle certain characters while extending bone crushing hugs to others. And sometimes quite a bit actually a reader might get the urge to full-on throttle-hug a certain character...or two...though, honestly, it was Quinn who gave me the most grief.
A prisoner of her past, she "sees everyone through a lens of brokenness" (p 174) Miss Susie Sunshine she is not. Grady finds her maddening...and that isn't always a bad thing. An unsuspecting reader might get singed when these two face off so consider yourself warned.
And isn't there just something about a bad boy in the process of change that sets a reader's senses all awhirl?! I liked Grady right from the start even when he was in full cocky, smirking, entitled mode. It's a talented author who can make a flawed hero like this one so relatable..
These two are in for a world of heartache and challenges as they discover more about themselves and each other. Luckily there's a bounty of friends and family to help them along the way. A riveting contemporary romance wrapped up in faith.
"Sometimes our biggest setbacks turn out to be our greatest blessings." (P 260)
Frosty5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful story!October 3, 2018FrostyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I like Just Let Go because the characters are flawed, just like me. Courtney Walsh has written a story about people who have lived life. They've failed, they've triumphed, but they've carried baggage. Heavy suitcases filled with burden. While one holds on to their faith, the other has let go and gone off the edge. This is a beautiful story of realization and redemption. A story of forgiveness in the most personal sense. I love Courtney's books, and this one is no exception. It is refreshing to read the story of people who demonstrate how the love of God brings hope. I purchased a Kindle copy from Amazon. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

I thought this book was good, and an interesting story. I had read the author's previous book set in the town of Harbor Pointe, Michigan, and it was nice to see a return of several characters from that book.
