Blog Tour and Review!

Forget Me Not by Vicki Hinze

from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing.
About This Book from the publisher.

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 ~~~

Forget Me Not pulled me in from the very first page and kept me guessing until the end.
Besides being a great storyline the book also boasts an awesome cover.
When a mysterious woman finds herself brought to the Crossroads Crisis Center
by a good Samaritan she finds herself dealing with amnesia and some crazy killers on
her tail. Beaten and dealing with memory loss, she also finds herself staring
at what she believes is her own portrait hanging on the wall of the Center.
The woman in the portrait happens to be the dead wife of the Crisis Center owner, Benjamin Brandt. Ben can't believe it when the center calls and tells them that they have a woman at the center that resembles his deceased wife Susan. At first Ben finds himself angry at the young woman who so resembles his dead wife. He has been mourning the loss of Susan and his young son and feels like this woman is hiding something and not being honest with them. Finally they agree to work with one another to unravel the truth behind how his wife and this woman are connected. Susan's look alike has a strong belief in God but will her faith be enough to keep them both out of harm’s way? Be prepared to lose track of time while you try to figure out the twists and turns in this story.
I had never read Vicki Hinze before but really like her writing style and can't wait
to read the next Crossroads Crisis Center novel. Forget Me Not makes a great
book discussion pick if you like Christian suspense/mystery and even includes a wonderful set of discussion questions. Check out Vicki's web page and you can even sign up to follow her on facebook.
