About the book

A coming-of-age novel about the pain of misconceptions and learning from them.
When life gives you lemons…


Mom is barely in the grave and the prodigal child is here to pick the bones clean.

I don’t want her here. My sister’s defection is a wound that won’t heal, and her return simply rubs at the scabs covering my heart.

I’ve managed just fine without her. She can go back to her fancy college and forget about us- that’s what she does best anyway.

If only I didn’t need her help. Or miss her so much.


The day my dad committed suicide I ran. I’ve been running ever since.

Going home is supposed to be the answer, instead it makes me question every thoughtless decision I’ve made.

My sister hates me. My little brother barely knows me. And Simon… is engaged.

None of it matters- or so I tell myself. I’m here to make amends and face a past haunted with regret.

As long as I can convince myself to stay.

Letting Go is a young adult romance dealing with tragedy, restitution, and love in all its aspects. The story relates to sensitive topics that may be triggering for some readers.

A small selection of Jacquie’s books

One of the reviews for The Seal’s Temptation

Serenity… HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER 5.0 out of 5 stars ~~Decisions and lots of Action~~ Reviewed in the United States on March 20, 2021

Maggie Holt is a DEA agent who needs rest after a traumatic event, Frank Stein was a member of SEAL Team Five and a Chief Petty Officer in the US Navy, Retired. There are several other fellow SEALs that are with them. Add into the mix a most interesting character, Amanda Rhinehold, SAC, with her unique style of leadership and this is off to a surprising beginning.

Toss in a group called the Renegade Resolvers, a fundamentalist right wing group hell bent on complete evil and the plot thickens. The setting for this novel takes place mostly at the ranch that Chief Frank Stein owns…

Agent Maggie has had terrible experiences as the result of being held captive and needs to have rest and relaxation to heal herself. It appears that the ranch Frank Stein owns will enable her to get rid of some demons. Loved the stallion, Orenda, and also think Frank, the Chief, is indeed a horse whisperer.

Lots more in this one and the author has managed to describe the brotherhood perfectly that exists between members of a SEAL team…HOOYAH for that.. The topic of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is handled well and the reader feels Maggie’s pain in healing.

The addition of romance offers the reader some respite from the action throughout the novel… When that love buy strikes, it strikes fast…oh, my goodness.. Perfect ending for this outstanding novel…

Excellent character development (including strong female characters), plot well written and the setting on the ranch will make the reader long for a ride on a horse.

Most highly recommended.
