The Book:

A mother who cannot face her future.

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?


As you can see the prologue will catch your full attention..but that’s not it, as the book itself  will be in your full attention !!! you will read the book without a pause. From the very begining of the story, it starts with mystery and we are introduced with all the main characters as well as the sides, which makes it easier to read the book as you go..

Forget Me Not is am wonderfully written suspense thriller that will keep you turning the pages till you finish, trying to solve the web of secrets and untangle the crosses and double crosses. There is an underlying hint of Christian influence, but it’s not preachy a way it adds a certain characteristic influence to the mystery woman in the story…I mean in the good way..

 Forget Me Not is the first novel in the Crossroads Crisis Center series and I anxiously await the second in the series. I would recommend this novel to any reader looking for an excellent mystery/suspense thriller.
