Book Review- Forget Me Not

I found a new author I really enjoy! I was excited to receive this book when it was offered by the publisher Waterbrook Multnomah. Only bad thing about it was there was a deadline and I already had a few other books on the stack to read! But that was not a problem. I picked this book up and was drawn in.

I did have a little difficulty keeping up with all the characters and the sub-plot but I was so drawn to the two main characters and I wanted to know what was going to happen that the sub-characters and their antics just kind of stayed in the background and I paid more attention to Benjamin and the mystery woman. Who by the end is relieved and all ends well.

There are some twists and turns in the story and honestly I didn't put it all together who was the real villain so that part was good. I mean who wants to figure it all out there's no suspense in that. Although I was a little bored with that part of the story just because it was confusing with all the players involved.

The book begins with this mysterious woman running for her life. She ends up being car-jacked and then found by an elderly man and taken to Crossroads Crises Center where she eventually meets Benjamin Brandt the owner of the center. She soon realizes she doesn't remember who she is. She remembers nothing of her past before being car-jacked. Bearing a huge resemblance to Benjamin's deceased wife doesn't help his grief stricken heart. The two are literally thrown together as they soon realize that someone is 'out to get' the mystery woman.

It doesn't take long for her to realize that she believes in God and trusts him to take care of her.

And as she begins to remember her past she realizes more and more that her faith and trust in God is what kept her safe and alive. It also doesn't take long for her to realize that because of the death of his wife Benjamin lost faith. As they are drawn together they both also struggle with their feelings as they are both so far apart in the beliefs about God.

Here's the trailer from you tube.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. But if your still on the fence about purchasing it go here
to read a sneak peak and you can purchase it while your there.
