"forget me not" by vicki hinze

Forget Me Not is the story of a woman on the run from a terrorist organization called NINA. She is caught, beaten, and abandonded in the woods, where she wakes with amnesia. With the name "Susan" in her mind and a necklace in her pocket, she finds her way to Crossroads, a women's shelter. There she learns that the owner's wife--named Susan--was murdered a few years previous, the necklace in her pocket belonged to Susan, and she bears a striking resemblance to the murdered woman. Adopting the name Karen, she and Susan's husband Ben set out to discover who she is, why she was and still is a target, and how she is connected to Susan's murder.

Forget Me Not is a very interesting book. I especially enjoyed the author's decision to alert the reader to the identity of the main villain at the beginning of the story while concealing the identities of some of his cohorts and/or their motivations for working with him until closer to the end of the novel. I wouldn't call it gripping suspense (I never once doubted the hero and heroine would survive to the end of the novel), but it is a very enjoyable mystery. I also appreciated how the main character's faith guided her decisions; even when she couldn't recall her name or history, she knew that her faith in Christ was the most important aspect of her life.

Should you read it? If you're looking for a good mystery that won't keep you awake at night.
