Fiction Friday: Not This Time by Vicki Hinze   Leave a comment

When I chose this book to review, I didn’t realize that it was the third in the trilogy. My rule about series books has been established. However, unlike the last book I reviewed out of series order, this one gave me enough information to keep me reading. The first few pages of this book were a little confusing. As I said, it’s the third book in a trilogy, so there were a lot of characters introduced up front (especially since it started out with a wedding). But I recovered quickly, and most of the characters were introduced in much smaller numbers after that. So my initial confusion didn’t keep me from reading further along. And once I got into it, I figured out who everyone was. This book kept me guessing most of the way through. There were a few things that I figured out before the characters did (which can be good or bad), but not a lot of them, and not usually very long before they did. So as a thriller it did a good job. I also really loved the God story within the novel. There were so many characters that had to learn lessons about God. One of the biggest lessons that applied to several characters was about redemption. No matter what we’ve done, or how long we’ve done it, God can still redeem us and change our direction. I really enjoyed this book, and I’m thinking about looking for the first two in the series, so that I can see how some of the relationships in the book got their start.

 

Disclosure: In exchange for an honest review, I received a copy of this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah as part of their Blogging for Books program. The free product did not influence my opinion. Also, links in this post are affiliate links.
