I just read another good suspense novel, and I have a giveaway copy for one of you!

WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing
$13.99
ISBN: 9781601422057
Categories: Fiction - Christian - Suspense

ABOUT THE BOOK (From the Publisher):

THEIR ELUSIVE ENEMIES TOOK EVERYTHING. NOW THEY WANT MORE.

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?

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING:
“I literally couldn’t put down Forget Me Not by Vicki Hinze. The suspense kept me flipping pages until long after midnight and I loved the plot twists. Highly recommended!”
–Colleen Coble, author of The Lightkeeper’s Bride and the Rock Harbor series

“Vicki Hinze is a masterful storyteller who has weaved unique and rich characters into a compelling, thought-provoking novel. Forget Me Not is a fabulous page-turner with incredible plot twists that will keep you guessing until the very end. Highly recommended!”
–Mark Mynheir, homicide detective and author of The Night Watchman

Forget Me Not is a season of the television show 24 in print, with a long list of surprises, a good love story, and a great inspirational uplift. An excellent read!”
–Hannah Alexander, author of A Killing Frost


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Vicki Hinze is an award-winning author of twenty-three novels, three nonfiction books, and hundreds of articles. Selected for Who’s Who in America in 2004 as a writer and educator, Hinze is active in Romance Writers of America and serves as a Vice President on the International Thriller Writers Board of Directors. Vicki lives in Florida with her artist husband, a retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel. Visit her website to learn more about Vicki’s books, blogs, and writing programs.


MY THOUGHTS:
This is the first book I've read by Vicki Hinze, but it won't be the last! The book grabbed me and wouldn't let go until its conclusion! Suspense and a multi-layered plot combine with a hint of romance and a wonderful message about God's love to create a gripping read. One caveat - this book is not for multi-taskers! There are enough twists and turns that you have to pay close attention to figure out who can be trusted. . .or not! I look forward to the sequel of this novel.

Forget Me Not can be purchased directly from the publisher or at other bookstores.

GIVEAWAY!
The publisher has provided an additional copy for me to give to one of you! Just leave a comment on this post no later than Thursday at 6:00 pm CDT, and Random Integer will choose a winner. US Residents only, please.
