The Truth About Letting Go by Leigh Talbert Moore

The Truth About Letting Go

 Ashley wants to smash everything in her once-perfect life. Charlotte wants to walk in Ashley’s seemingly charmed shoes. Colt wants to turn Smalltown USA on its ear–with Ashley at his side. Jordan wants to follow his heart… but Ashley is the one sacrifice he never expected to make. Up until now, Ashley Lockett has always followed the rules. She’s always done the right thing, played it safe, and then her ideal life is shattered when her dad dies suddenly. Fueled by anger and grief, she vows to do everything opposite of how she lived before. She rejects safety, the rules, faith, and then she meets Jordan. Jordan has big dreams, he’s had a crush on Ashley for years, he’s a great kisser… but he’s also safe. Enter Colt. He is not safe, and he’s more than willing to help Ashley fulfill her vow.

Guest Post – Behind the Story

It was back when Patrick Swayze got cancer and died so fast. Remember that? Well, for whatever reason, that incident started my writerly wheels turning…
I started thinking about major shocks like losing a spouse or a parent and how different people deal with trauma differently.
Some people withdraw, some people soldier on like nothing happened, and then some people get really mad and start acting out.
That’s where the story starts.
Ashley’s the daughter left behind, and in her case, her dad was a writer for a national health magazine–a modified stay-at-home dad. So they were extra-close.
Her mom withdraws into her own world of grief, her brother goes back to college, and Ashley’s left all alone, hurting and angry. And since her dad was a local celebrity, she gets to deal with her grief in front of a large audience.
She doesn’t deal very well.
She’s edgy, and she keeps having urges to break things. One reader-reviewer said she was like the female version of the bad-boy. I guess that’s a good description.
Anyway, so TheTruth About Letting Go is a companion to Faking, but it’s not a sequel. The books can be read out of order. It just takes place in the same location and has some of the same characters.
