Book Alert: Vicki Hinze!!!

OK, so I posted the previous Squires bookwatch before I saw this. Vicki Hinze has a new book out!! I'm a huge fan. Her backlist is notoriously difficult to find, but I've read almost all of it. I'm a little torn, because this is released from Random House Religious. That makes me wary. But I know I'll give the first one a try and see how I feel about it. She just writes amazing suspense. I'm hopeful that the "religious" part is simply spirituality rather than anything too deep. I'll let y'all know!


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?


  1. Lori,

    Let me know what you decide. Seriously.

  2. Just ordered this one for work - like a week ago I think. It got a very positive review in Publisher's Weekly :)

  3. Lori, I love Vicki Hinze. I'll wait to hear what you think of this one.

  4. I like the cover and the story does sound good :D Can't wait to see what you think of it, Lori :D

    It seems to me there's a lot of "religious" lines lately... Hmm, wonder if it's a trend or it's going to stick.

  5. This does sound like a good suspense so I am interested in reading.
    Thanks for the review.


Have you read it? What do you think?
