Book Review: Forget Me Not by Vicki Hinze

Mystery, supense, spirituality and romance--you get it all in Vicki Hinze's latest novel, Forget Me Not.  A woman who has lost her memory crosses paths with Benjamin Brandt--a man whose wife and daughter were murdered and the killers never found.  After the loss of his wife and daughter, Benjamin lost faith, but even with the loss of her identity, this woman knows one thing only--her faith in God and that she had Benjamin's wife's necklace. 

The woman with amnesia is a very likeable character with great faith and great strength and you really want to learn who she is and what her story is.  Benjamin, on the other hand, is a hurt and lost soul, who you really feel sorry for.  The suspense and mystery of how their lives may be connected is very cleverly written and is definitely a page turner.  I love trying to figure out mysteries before they are are brought to light, but in this book, I had no inkling of what the truth was.  I really enjoyed this book, and enjoyed how the main character relied on her faith to carry her through despite all that was going on around her.  The love story, however, was quite predictable and the end was just a little to hokey for me.  

The book really had me thinking, if we forgot who we were, would our core remember our faith?  Overall, I think this book is definitely a worthwhile read, especially if you enjoy mysteries.  Forget Me Not is unforgettable!
