Product Description

Relationships are fragile things, especially at Crossroads Crisis Center. Beth believes her best friend and business partner, Sara, is married to an unscrupulous man. Sara disagrees, and the resulting friction between the two women becomes almost unbearable for Beth. Tensions rise even more when Sara's husband goes missing and is presumed dead--and Beth appears guilty of his murder. In her attempt to prove herself innocent and help Sara see the truth, Beth calls on Joe, a special ops member and a man she loves although she shouldn't. Together, they discover an international link to NINA, the most feared terrorist group in the world, and realize the head of the group is among their closest friends; but which one?

Publisher's Description

Small town scandal. International terrorist attack. Who among them is the traitor?
Sara and Beth have built a multi-million dollar business together, but their once solid friendship is now strained. Beth is leery of Sara’s husband, and when he is kidnapped, authorities consider Beth their prime suspect.
Then, their small town of Seagrove Village is rocked by an act of terrorism, and Beth doesn’t know who to trust. Someone she knows is linked to the attack, but who? Is there a connection to Crossroads Crisis Center? In the midst of the confusion and fear, Beth finds herself attracted to a man from her past. She knows she shouldn’t fall in love with him, but she can’t resist or even explain their bond. As her world unravels around her, she wonders, is it possible to be beyond redemption?

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Not This Time

"Vicki Hinze’s new thriller, Not This Time, hones suspense to a razored edge. Riveting, relentless, and fraught with betrayals, here is a novel that cuts both to the bone and to the heart. Not This Time should be retitled Not to be Missed."
—James Rollins, New York Times best-selling author of The Devil Colony

"In Not This Time, Vicki Hinze has created a tense, suspenseful story, peopled with vivid characters and set against a backdrop of deadly danger. I can always count on Vicki for an absorbing story I’ll remember long after I’ve closed the
book, and Not This Time was no exception. Do yourself a favor and pick this book as your next read."
—Kay Hooper, New York Times best-selling author

"Vicki Hinze has created a ’keeper’! Not This Time is engrossing, entertaining, filled with excellently drawn and very real people, and a story that keeps you turning the pages!"
—Heather Graham, New York Times best-selling author

"Hinze paints her tale on a broad canvas, her writing expertly controlled, rich in imagination, deep in characterization. It’s a race against time and shadowy instincts, the narrative loud with surprises, the premise all-too-believable."
—Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author of The Jefferson Key

"If you’re not already hooked on Vicki Hinze’s Crossroads Series, you will be this time. Not This Time is a tense and involving tale of crime and violence that takes the reader from the deepest darkness of the human heart to the light of redemption."
—Susan Wiggs, New York Times Bestselling Author

Praise for Vicki Hinze

"Tense, breathless, multi-layered - and highly recommended."
—Lee Child New York Times bestselling author

"Hinze has written amasterful, complicated tale of suspense that gains momentum with each turn of a page. Her writing flows surely,moving fromone character to the next, one setting to another, with readers keeping the swift pace."

"[Hinze] keeps the pace brisk and the tension high. Don’t start reading too late at night—you may see 2:00 a.m."

"Fans of Christian suspense will enjoy Hinze’s latest thriller."
—Library Journal

"Excellent characterization and a compelling plot draw the reader in and never let 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."

    Have you ever been betrayed or deceived by someone you trusted? I know I have, and it is very painful. That is one of the themes in this story. There are also extreme loyalty, love, confrontation, lies, and murder. Sound interesting yet?

    Sara and Beth are best friends and business partners. They own a computer company and have made millions of dollars, but they both are very down-to-earth ladies. Their business works with the government sometimes. Sara has married Robert via a 5-week courtship and elopement. Beth thinks Robert is a slime ball who is just using Sara for her money. Beth is single for now. Sara has health issues that require close monitoring and Beth is always on-hand to look after her. Lately, Sara has been acting weird, but won't discuss what's going on. Beth is determined to find what's happening. Then, Robert is kidnapped and a ransom is demanded.

    Sara is hospitalized with a medical emergency, so that leaves Beth to pay the ransom. She doesn't pay it to free Robert, but because she loves Sara. However, the ransom is never picked up. What's going on? Is Robert already dead? Sara is able to leave the hospital after a few days. Beth has been keeping in contact with Joe, who works for the government watching spies and their organizations. Is that what is at work in this case? Beth and Joe talk frequently on the phone and develop a relationship. Beth has trouble trusting him, as well as herself, in their developing relationship. Is Joe the one God has brought to her as the one to spend her life with? Sara admits something is going on, but refuses to tell anyone about it. The lead detective on the case begins to have feelings for Sara, but doesn't act on them as he knows she is married. Sara returns those feelings, but she won't act on them either. As the situation comes to the highpoint, can these characters trust when lives are on the line?

    There is lots of tension amongst the various characters, and danger abounds for some. The story flows nicely, and I thought the characters were fleshed out well. I'll be reading more of this author's books in the future for sure!

    Not This Time is the conclusion to her Crossroads Crisis Center series, and in my opinion is the best book of the series.

    I, honestly, took a few days to read each of the first two books, but I finished Not This Time in about 24 hours. I went to bed and had a such hard time putting it down, it kept drawing me on and on. Just one more page. Just one more chapter. You get the idea.

    The suspense angle in this book is very well written and paced nicely. The reader is drawn on, hardly taking a breath, to find out what happens next. It doesn't careen from one moment of danger into the next without pause or break. There are the quiet moments as well, where you get a chance to learn more about the characters, what motivates them, their thoughts and emotions. I was very happy with how the story played out. The author struck a good and enjoyable balance between action and emotion.

    I absolutely liked Beth and Joe. They are "crazy" about each other and it's fun to watch.. Both of them value friends and family, having 'adopted' people into their circles of those they call family.

    Sara is Beth's best friend. They have a lot of history together. Beth is willing to do whatever it takes, no matter how dangerous, to protect and help her friend. Just how far will she have to go?

    Joe is pretty closed mouth about his family, but his former spy group The Shadow Watchers are as close to family as a guy can get. He leads a life of danger and now NINA has a price on his head, just what will it take to beat them and save the woman he loves?

    Don't miss this exciting book! Make sure you have a long quiet evening ahead so you won't have to stop reading, that is, IF you can stop.

    (I received this book from the Publisher through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.)

    This is the third of the Crossroad Crisis Center books. NINA is still causing trouble, and this time Beth and Sara and their software company are the targets. Through all the plot twists and turns, the reader is hard pressed to decide whether several of the characters are good or bad as several are not what they appear to be. Deaths are threatened, kidnappings orchestrated, and terrorist attacks are planned as the good guys rush to stop NINA operatives in their little village. Through it all, God provides comfort and strength to believers, and a murderer finds redemption. Very exciting and satisfying book with all the Crossroads characters ones with whom I'd like to be friends.

    I really enjoyed this third book in The Crossroads Crisis Series. All the characters from the last two books are back and the story picks up from where the last book ended with very little time lapse.

    Our main characters Joe and Beth have great chemistry together as they navigate their way through a maze of mystery, dodging NINA's attempts to disrupt their lives and those they love, while trying to unravel the hidden truth of who is behind the abduction of Sara's husband.

    Author Vicki Hinze has woven a story of suspense and mystery that will keep you turning the pages only to find that nothing is as it seems. You will not be disappointed with Not This Time!

    Not This Time by Vicki Hinze is the conclusion *sob* to her Crossroads Crisis Center series. Hinze writes top-notch romantic suspense. She tackles tough topics including human trafficking and domestic violence, and her characters are great. Hinze does a fantastic job with her romantic leads. She knows how to write swoon-worthy heroes! Her bad guys *semi-spoiler alert* (and gals) *end semi-spoiler* are also very well done, even sympathetic at times. I was really hoping that this series would be longer, but Hinze has a new title, Survive the Night, coming in October from Love Inspired Suspense that looks like the first in a new series so Yay!!!
