Forget Me Not {a book review}

Forget Me Not
by Vicki Hinze

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 thoughts}

I love a good mystery. There's just something about a problem needing to be solved, all the clues coming together, finally reaching the end and figuring out whodunit...if it's a good mystery, I will probably enjoy reading it. Forget Me Not did not disappoint.

I was a little confused as I read the first chapter, since it doesn't really reveal anything about the woman who becomes the main character. It doesn't tell much about who she is, why the bad guys are after her, etc. But it works in well when she has amnesia and doesn't know, because you discover right along with her.

This book was a page-turner for me. I really wanted to read it as fast as I could, because I just had to find out how everything fit together. And I didn't feel lost by the end of the book; I knew what was happening.

So if you're on the lookout for some suspenseful reading, you might want to pick up Forget Me Not. It might be just what you were looking for! :)
