(arc) Review: Forget Me Not by Vicki Hinze

About the Book:


Crossroads Crisis Center owner Benjamin Brandt was a content man—in his faith, his work, and his family. Then in a flash, everything he loved was snatched away. His wife and son were murdered, and grief-stricken Ben lost faith. Determination to find their killers keeps him going, but after three years of dead ends and torment, his hope is dying too. Why had he survived? He’d failed to protect his family. Now, a mysterious woman appears at Crossroads seeking answers and help—a victim who eerily resembles Ben’s deceased wife, Susan. A woman robbed of her identity, her life, of everything except her faith—and Susan’s necklace.

The connections between the two women mount, exceeding coincidence, and to keep the truth hidden, someone is willing to kill. Finding out who and why turns Ben and the mystery woman’s situation from dangerous to deadly. Their only hope for survival is to work together, trust each other, and face whatever they discover head on, no matter how painful. But will that be enough to save their lives and heal their tattered hearts?

My Review:

I was pleasantly surprised by this one to be honest. I expected alot different but came away really happy with it.

The characters in this one were diverse which made it really enjoyable. The main gal, Kelly, was built up well, and not to give to much away, but I appreciated the struggles the characters faced with such grace.

This one had an amazing storyline IMO. There were several totally unexpected plot twists. It really kept the book exciting. I think the author did a wonderful job at keeping the suspense level up, and the reader guessing. Ms. Hinze managed to really pull it all together at the end and left me feeling satisfied with the story.

Now, this one is christian fiction~let me say that I thought it was excellent for the genre. This is Vicki's first time writing in this genre and I think she did an excellent job with it. The story had the message of having and keeping your faith, but it also had the strong air of a suspense novel. I think this one can appeal to a wide group of readers and cross over to several genres.
