Forget Me Not by Vicki Hinze is a suspenseful thriller in which mistaken identity takes on murderous consequences both for the protagonist and the characters surrounding her. A young woman in New Orleans is carjacked and assaulted, ultimately finding herself several hundred miles east in Seagrove Village, Florida. Taken to a women’s shelter called Crossroads Crisis Center, she is treated for her injuries but is unable to recall what happened to her. She meets Benjamin Brandt, owner of the shelter. He is appalled that Susan looks exactly like his wife who had been murdered along with his baby boy three years ago. Their love journey begins together when they try to come to grips with their situation, and Susan tries to remember who she really is. A crime mob, part of a terrorist organization called NINA and involving the mayor of Seagrove Village, is after Susan for a beach house that she owns, to be used as a staging ground for their activities. Susan slowly regains her memories, and becomes Kelly Jean Walker, an heiress to a vast fortune. She figures out that her real father and uncle had been part of the terrorist group. After several murders and bombings, the story finishes at the beach house in a fiery ending.

This book is full of twists and turns. The plot is so complicated that one may wonder how the author can keep the story straight. Because there are so many loose ends to keep track, it was difficult to get through it. There are no direct biblical references, although the main character is constantly praying to God and leaning on her faith to keep going through her tumultuous trek. She wants a deeper relationship with the other protagonist, Benjamin Brandt, but he has lost his faith completely since the murder of his family. This bothers her. It is resolved at the end of the book, but the inclusion of faith and prayer seem thrown in and do not have a link to the plot.

Although well-written, the Christian reader may not enjoy it because it does not address religious issues. It might be a good book for the main-stream reader who likes complicated plots and lots of characters. – Anita Tiemeyer, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Publisher's Weekly

Author of more than 20 novels of romance and suspense and three works of nonfiction, Hinze has written a masterful, complicated tale of suspense that gains momentum with each turn of a page. Her writing flows surely, moving from one character to the next, one setting to another, with readers keeping the swift pace. . Benjamin Brandt, owner of the Crossroads Crisis Center, hasn’t set foot in the center since his wife and son were murdered a few years earlier. Then Susan comes to the center, beaten and battered, suffering a case of amnesia, and also bearing a close resemblance to Benjamin’s deceased wife, also named Susan, and wearing the dead woman’s cross necklace. The two clash at first, but even as murders occur around them, the tension between them relaxes. Still, there is a mystery to be solved involving Susan’s identity and a past that must be reckoned with before either can move ahead. Hinze’s plot may have readers puzzling over how this tangled tale will ever resolve itself, but that underestimates the author’s talent for transforming the unlikely into something beautiful. (Mar.)

—Library Journal

"[Hinze] keeps the pace brisk and the tension high. Don’t start reading too late at night—you may see 2 a.m."
—Crosswalk.com

 "Excellent characterization and a compelling plot draw the reader in and never lets go. Perhaps most importantly, the novel addresses the universal question of the purpose of pain and the importance of faith when all hope seems lost. Evil is unapologetically painted black and bold, making the redemptive power of Christ seem all that much more powerful. Deadly Ties is absolutely magnificent."

    Forget Me Not will be quickly forgotten. The storyline is so complicated that it's difficult to keep track of all the players, who is family, friend or foe? I found myself having to frequently replay the names and places of some characters, taking away from enjoying the story. By the time I was two thirds of the way through, I started skimming (a really bad sign), hoping that I could pick up a thread of interest. But determined to finish the book, I did and I was left disappointed. This was my first book by this author, and probably my last.

    A gripping suspense story that will keep you guessing until the end.

    I really enjoyed this book. Not only did it have a strong suspense angle and a dash of romance but the faith angle was very good. No matter what happened, even losing her memory in a very traumatic way, the heroine never wavers in her faith. I do tend to get a little tired of the heroines in suspense stories having to find their way to God, so it was nice to read a story about a girl already there who is also strong enough in her faith to withstand anything thrown at her. Our hero has lost sight of his faith but little by little he finds his way back to the perfect Love.

    That said, the heroine, is not a perfect goody-goody. She loses her temper at the hero and firmly puts him in his place when they first meet, she clobbers a bad guy that breaks into her cottage, she even uses a few interesting items as weapons including a fire extinguisher and a water hose. She is scared but still tries to do what is right.

    The hero has some issues to work through, amongst them is guilt over failing to protect his wife and son. Grieving and bitter he still tries to do the right thing. He does help our heroine even though he thinks she might be some kind of con artist trying to get his money.

    I felt the characters were flawed and had their own foibles which made them all the more believable.

    The mystery has as many twists and turns as a Louisiana bayou. You never quite know what to expect next. Is the amnesiac heroine somehow Ben's deceased wife, Susan? If she isn't, then why does she look like Susan and how did she get Susan's necklace? Who is after her, is there more than one person? And why is she so frightened of the little seaside town?

    If you want to know the answers to these questions than I suggest you hurry and get a copy of this exciting story.

    I am so glad I have the next book in the series so I don't have to wait to find out what happens next.

    This is the first of the Crossroads Crisis Center trilogy, and it is a great Christian thriller. The heroine has people wanting to kill her, and she now finds herself beaten and with no memory of who she is. She just knows she's in danger and shouldn't go to police or authorities for help. Slowly, the reader learns bits of backstory and meets secondary characters, but who can be trusted and who can't? What is the carefully constructed conspiracy that surrounds her? Who is Susan? Who is Kelly? What happened three years ago? What in the world is going on now? Who or what is NINA? The role of God as her protector and her assurance of her identity as a child of God is the one truth she clings to even when all else is a frightening unknown to her.

    The heroine's attempts to make sense of her feelings of loneliness, guilt and imminent danger add to the pulse-quickening suspense for the reader who shares her confusion and sense of urgency . So many plot twists and turns with many characters not being what they appear to be kept me guessing until the satisfying ending. This book is all a thriller should be and can be read as a stand-alone in spite of being the first in a series.

    I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for an honest opinion. The opinions expressed are solely mine.

    Review: Forget Me Not - Vicki Hinze- March 2010

    When Kelly wakes up after being left for dead , she has no recollection of who she is - all that she has on her is a business card with "Crossroads Crisis Centre" scrawled with the name Susan and a cross around her neck that reads "To Susan Love Ben". Once, Kelly arrives at the Crossroads centre desperate to remember exactly who she is - she is bombarded with memories of a woman named Susan and the likeness is uncanny. The only thing is that Susan and her son were murdered three years ago. Soon Kelly with the help of Susan's husband Ben , will unravel both the mysteries behind Susan and her son's death but also Kelly's mugging - are they related and what happens when they discover it is part of a deeper organisation called NINA - a group of bio-terriosts - have they gotten themselves in too far and will Kelly whose escaped death this time around be so lucky to escape it again and will Ben discover the closure about his wife and son's murders. A novel that proves that by having God's faith- we can overcome the worst of situations.

    Benjamin Brandt, owner of Crossroads Crisis Center, had an ideal life--his faith, his wife and son, and his work. In an instant, he lost all but his job. His family had been murdered. Although grief-stricken, he continues to search for the murderer(s)--but it's been three years and leads are slipping away fast.One day, a woman, who looks remarkably like Benjamin's wife, Susan, is brought to the Crisis Center, seeking help and answers. She's been the victim of a beating so severe she doesn't know who she is. Why? By whom? She's lost everything, except her faith.Ben's mistrust of this 'Susan' woman, and the mystery 'Susan' woman's confusion about her identity and life, get magnified out of proportion, yet they must work together to figure out who and why someone is willing to kill them to keep the truth hidden from them. The situation goes from dangerous to deadly once 'those someones' are able to track her whereabouts. Will they find the killer(s) before they are killed?Forget Me Not, by Vicki Hinze, is an action-packed, intense, crime-laden novel that changes plots on a frequent basis, keeping you alert, absorbed and hooked to the end. It's complex, but that's what makes it good!Vicki is definitely keen on character reactions and emotions. The intricacies of the many characters were handled very aptly. They were consistent throughout the book. Evil was punctuated with good, which were great antagonists throughout. In the life of crime, do you really know who your friends are?It kept me wondering what would happen and when, with either the evil, vicious end of the book, as well as between Ben and the mystery 'Susan' woman.For this, my first introduction to Vicki's writing, I know I'll definitely be reading more of her books! The spiritual truths of God's unconditional love is relevant to everyone.This book was provided by Susan at The Suspense Zone for my honest review.
