Forget Me Not by Vicki Hinze is a book that had me wondering what was going to happen next and I really enjoyed it. The main characters are real and the suspense was deep. "Susan" (her name changes throughout the story) the main character, has been on the run for years, changing identities as needed. Then she loses her memory after a carjacking and the only clue as to who she might be is the name "Susan," written on the business card of a crisis center...along with a necklace. Both were in her pocket.
Though Susan is the victim, she does not play the victim, though her life is in danger throughout the book. She stands up to Ben, who doubts her amnesia, and has turned his back on his faith. Forget Me Not makes you want more. This was a good book, and I definitely recommend it if you like suspense with a bit of romance.
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?
