FORGET ME NOT by Vicki Hinze - Book Review

From back cover: Their elusive enemies took everything. Now they want more. 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 his identity, his life, and 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: Difficult to put down, this story was gripping from beginning to end. It had me turning the pages and having to read "just one more chapter." Vicki Hinze has masterfully drawn the characters. The reader feels the pain and emotion as the characters face momentous challenges and dilemmas. I found it an emotional read, and that surprised me. I needed a few tissues as the story concluded.

Vicki is an award-winning author of twenty-three novels, and this is her first book of Christian fiction. Thankfully, it won't be the last! For a very informative interview, go to http://www.psalm516.blogspot.com/vicki-hinze-interviews-with-nora-give.html
