“This was the book chosen by a bookclub that I belong to for the month of July. It was excellent. Usually in amnesia books we know all about the victim and watch while they learn about themselves but in this case, we learn along with the victim. A twist that I really enjoyed. This is Vicki's first Christian themed book although she is a famous mystery writer. The mystery is indeed polished, entertaining, and suspenseful. The Christian background, although heavy in places, suited the personae of the victim. The romance was of course predictable but then aren't they all! It was definitely a page turner with lots of twists and turns and unexpected connections. ”Wyn C wrote this review Sunday, July 25, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Buckle-up as you prepare to read Vicki Hinze’s first Christian Fiction suspenseful adventure, Forget Me Not. I was so thankful to receive a review copy of this book.
I was hooked from the very first chapter as a murder, then a carjacking takes place and the main character is left for dead. The main character is running for her life and wakes up in the woods, badly beaten. A Good Samaritan arrives and helps her to the Crossroads Crisis Center. One problem - this isn’t a medical facility and the woman doesn’t know who she is! Weirder still...she discovers at the center that she looks very similar to Susan Brandt, founder of the Crossroads Crisis Center.
“The main character says to Ben Brandt, (the founders husband)—who hasn’t treated her nice, “Someone wants me dead and I have no idea why!...I intend to find out who I am and I hope that includes insight into your wife and son’s murder…If you want me to share what I learn, then you need to adjust your attitude toward me, because I’ve tolerated all the indignity and disrespect from you I’m going to.”
Vicki’s characters grabbed my heart and attention from the start. I could feel the main character's pain, relate to their spiritual struggle and followed the plot twists closely as she revealed surprising details and turns that shed light into her situation. I had no idea how all the pieces would be put together; it definitely kept me reading!
The author writes the story from the view of the young woman who has amnesia. The reader discovers, along with the girl, about her life has it unfolds. This story is full of intriguing plot twists that got more intriguing with every page I read. Vicki is a master at weaving a surprising plot, with rich characters you instantly care about—I enjoyed the main character’s spiritual journey and how she listened to the Holy Spirit to guide her.

“This was my first experience reading Vicki Hinze, but let me tell you, if will not be my last! I'm already looking forward to the next book in this series, but will have to wait 'til Spring 2011 to get my hands on it. Bummer!
I can't give one of my typical reviews of this book, because I would end up giving too much away. Anyone who is familiar with my reviews knows that I like to focus on each of the main characters lives, as well as add a little something about any secondary characters who might have caught my attention; well, that's just not possible with Forget Me Not. I can't even tell you the female lead-character's name w/o spoiling a big part of the story! Yes...it's that intriguing!
Forget Me Not is a fast-pasted book, from the very first sentence, and I read it in a matter of a few hours. It has it all: international terrorists, corrupt politicians/town leaders, back-stabbing family members, even a few tear-inducing moments. I think guys would even enjoy this one---it would make an awesome movie!
Let me also mention, for those of you who may not be fond of the "stronger" faith-themed Christian Fiction books, this one might not be for you, but you should definitely give it a chance as it's well worth your time. God is a major part of the female character's life and the story just wouldn't be the same w/o His influence throughout the entire book. Her life revolves around her strong faith in her Heavenly Father.
In case y'all are wondering if I have completely strayed from my "all-Romance/all the time" roots....no, I have not! This book even has a romantic angle for us Romance junkies, which I was so excited to discover. LOL
If you want to check out Vicki Hinze's first foray into Christian Fiction, be sure to grab a copy of Forget Me Not for yourself. I think you'll be glad you did --- I know I am! I'm hoping to get my hands on more of her books, as soon as I can.”
