Forget Me Not – A Review

I have an overactive imagination.  So when I saw the cover of Vicki Hinze’s latest book, Forget Me Not, I fully anticipated being scared.  I was leery to read this book.  Thrillers and I just don’t agree.  So I let my friend, Sarah, read it first. 



I’m a wimp.  I cringed a little bit with the opening scene of the book, but not from an evil presence like some novels or movies clearly portray.  Hinze wrote pure and simple suspense, sprinkled with  trust and guidance from the Lord, in the life of the main character, Kelly (or Susan?). 

Forget Me Not is a quick and interesting read.  Perfect for a vacation or getaway after a hard day.

If you would like to know more, here is a brief summary provided by Waterbrook Multnomah:

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?
