Forget Me Not by Vicki Hinze is a good read. It's a mystery that keeps unfolding with plenty of twists and turns.
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. FROM THE PUBLISHER: Crossroads Crisis Center
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?
This is a Christian book, with the themes of faith and hope practically screaming from the pages at times. One of the main characters remains unbelievably faithful, serene, and confident while going through several major crisies... and in real life, even the most devout believers I know would have some momentary shred of doubt or fear.
Despite the syrupy-sweetness, I really enjoyed this book. It's nice to find a mystery that can have criminal elements without relying on graphic descriptions of violence or sex. And while I easily predicted the general ending, the details and twists kept me interested right up until the last page.
