From the Back Cover
Even though she lives hundreds of miles away, when Langston, who dreams of being a chef, meets Cecile, a Juilliard-trained pianist, he is sure that his history of being a sidekick, instead of a love interest, is finally over. Their connection is real and full of potential for a deeper bond, but the obstacles between them turn out to be greater than distance. Can these busy, complicated people be ready for each other at the same time? Does it even matter? Before they can answer these questions, each must do battle with the ultimate demon--fear.

Corley uses an unusual combination narrative, letters, journal entries, and emails to put the reader into the mind of characters that will come to life on the pages. Her sensual descriptions allow the reader to hear the music Cecile creates as she sits down at the piano, to smell and taste the delicious offerings Langston creates in the kitchen, to see the rolling waves and feel the sand as Cecile walks on the beach in Bermuda.
This is one of those books that keeps you turning pages but makes you sad when you come to the end. Hopefully, Corley will write again soon to let us know what happens next. Read Letting Go now so you’ll be ready for the sequel.
If you are a fan of romance fiction, or even if you are not, give this book read, I couldn't put it down. With the risk of sounding cheesy, I had a hard time 'Letting Go' of this one.
So if you are a thriller lover and think romance fiction is bland, why not step out of your comfort zone like I did. With 'Letting Go' you will discover a novel that is unforgettable and that will really move you. It's always worth trying new things and I can't wait to read more from Thompson Corley in the future.
I enjoyed Letting Go so much I plan to read it again!
