Sara and Beth have built a multi-million dollar business together, but their once solid friendship is now strained. Beth is leery of Sara’s husband, and when he is kidnapped, authorities consider Beth their prime suspect.
Then, their small town of Seagrove Village is rocked by an act of terrorism, and Beth doesn’t know who to trust. Someone she knows is linked to the attack, but who? Is there a connection to Crossroads Crisis Center? In the midst of the confusion and fear, Beth finds herself attracted to a man from her past. She knows she shouldn’t fall in love with him, but she can’t resist or even explain their bond. As her world unravels around her, she wonders, is it possible to be beyond redemption?
Not This Time is the third book in Vicki Hinze's Crossroad Crisis Center series but can be read completely on its own. From what I have heard a few characters carry over from the first two books but nothing that makes it hard to follow or understand. Part of me had wished I had read the others in series first just because I like to read things in order and find it harder to go back and read the first two now that I know where things would go with them. This book falls into the suspense genre and the author does a fantastic job writing it. The characters feel real, the setting is well described and you can feel every emotion. This books has something for all since it is full of suspense, murder, romance, faith, danger, and more. You can't go wrong picking up this book, the only mistake you could make is not reading the first two before it. Great job Vicki!
