What reviewers are saying about You Sent Me A Letter –
A gripping read with an intriguing and unsettling mystery at its heart. It kept me guessing all the way through. I found it impossible to put down. –C.L. Taylor on You Sent Me a Letter
Kept me guessing until the very last page. –Erin Kelly on You Sent Me a Letter
You Sent Me A Letter grabs you by the throat in the first chapter and doesn’t let go throughout. I didn’t breathe the whole time I was reading! Lucy Dawson creates fantastically sympathetic and realistic characters and the reader is pulled along with them at breakneck speed. Compelling and wholly satisfying, I had chills by the end. This isn’t my first Dawson read and it certainly won’t be my last. Love love loved it. Recommended to simply everyone. –Jenny Blackhurst, author of How I Lost You
I’m not exaggerating when I say that this book gave me palpitations. Make sure you don’t have anything pressing to do, because once you pick it up there is absolutely no way you’ll be able to put it back down. –SJI Holliday on You Sent Me A Letter
A clever and compelling read –Freya North on The One that Got Away
