Not This Time - Review

Terrorist attack. Blood soaked mattress. Seagrove Village residents find trouble arrives when they least expect it. Do Sara & Beth find love in the midst of death, destruction and turmoil? Will the community find the strength to love and forgive? Who can people trust?

Not This Time by Vicki Hinze is the third book in the Crossroads Crisis Center series. Would I consider this a stand alone book? No. I spent a number of chapters trying to figure out who all these characters were and how they all fit together. When I requested this book from Blogging for Books, I was not aware this was a part of the series. Being the last book in a series, I cannot blame the author for the confusion I felt at the beginning of the book. A few chapters in I soon got over the confusion.

I felt transported into the story and all the twists and turns associated with suspense novels. Author Vicki Hinze did an excellent job of moving the story along and just the right pace. Just when I thought I had figured out 'who done it', there would be another twist in the plot that had me on the trail of another suspect.

Over all, well done. My recommendation is the start with book one of this series. I personally think you'll enjoy all three books if Not This Time is an indicator.

I received this book free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing for review purposes. I am not required to give a positive review, only an honest review.
