Book Review: Forget Me Not

This book was provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.

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?

My Thoughts:
First of all, many thanks to WaterBrook Multnomah for allowing me to review books for them.  It's a privilege and an honor!!
The book:  OH MY!!!  This book has been, by far, my favorite read thus far!  This author is a definite edge of your seat writer and had me up till the wee hours of the morning wanting more!  I believe my husband became a book widower during these past few days.  I could not put this book down and itched for the moment that I could leave work, get my running done and get in my recliner or out on the back porch so I could sit and read this intriguing book!!
If you love suspense, this is definitely the book for you!  There are so many twists and turns in this book AND it keeps you guessing until the very end of the book!  It's not often that you find a book that will suck you in and keep you questioning up until the very last pages.  I highly recommend this book to everyone out there.  I truly don't know what more to say because I don't want to throw out any spoilers.  Please, Please, Please read this book...I beg you!  ENJOY!
