Book Review of Best Forgotten by Paula Vince

I received this book recently for review and I have to tell you, this is a book I will not forget! It is best not forgotten:) I have never heard of Paula Vince before finding out about this book but I will be checking for more after reading this one. Check it out and then read about my review below.

A young accident victim wakes up in hospital and can't remember who he is. Why does he have nothing in common with his family? Why does he despise the person he was supposed to be? Why has his best friend disappeared without a trace? Is somebody after him? His family can offer no solutions. His girlfriend is strangely aloof and he cannot shake off a feeling that the answers will prove more unpleasant than his amnesia. Somehow he must find out as it seems time is running out. Paula Vince has woven elements of secrecy and suspense with her trademark warmth and compassion. Best Forgotten is an inspirational masterpiece you won't forget.

MY REVIEW-This is a very different plot for a Christian book. I don't know that I have ever read one quite like this and that is part of what makes it good. I love a suspense story that you don't know how it will end. And this is one of those. Mystery and several good turns!

The main character in this book is very well written. It shows his distress and struggle to get back his memory and at the same time, deal with all the intrigue going on around him. What happened to his best friend? This is all part of the mystery and suspense that abounds in this novel. He also struggles with his past and what he was really like, and the ultimate question, can he change for the better?

Overall and excellent book that makes you think. What if you could do it all over again? Are there things you would change? Pick up this book if you like a good mystery! Paula Vince has written a hum-dinger of a mystery!

Award-winning author, Paula Vince loves to evoke tears and laughter through writing fiction. She stirs her stories with mystery, romance, drama and suspense to create something delectably special. A wife and homeschooling mother of three children, she resides in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia, a beautiful spot for inspiration with its breath-taking scenery and four distinct seasons.

For over ten years, Paula's aim has been to provide quality faith-inspired fiction set in Australia. Her quest started way back when, as a Uni student, she discovered the writing of American Christian fiction authors. Her passion is to provide the same enjoyable reads highlighting her own country.

I received a copy of this book from BookCrash for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.
