My Book Review of Vicki Hinze's Deadly Ties

From the Back Cover:

Her enemy will stop at nothing for control … and everything is not enough

A horrific crime shatters Lisa Harper’s idyllic childhood. Her father is dead and her desperate mother, Annie, quickly marries Dutch Hauk, an abusive monster who soon reveals his hatred for Lisa. To protect her, Annie defies her ruthless husband and forfeits custody to a trusted friend. Enraged, Dutch vows to keep Annie and Lisa apart—and he does. Years later, though keenly aware of Dutch’s evil intent, Lisa and her mother seize a chance to be a family, safe in a home where love dwells. But they fail to fathom how far Dutch will go to keep his vow.

Determined to control his women, Dutch proves resourceful. His associates in crime are feared at the highest levels across the globe—and for Lisa they plan a fate worse than death. Yet she too has formidable connections: ones like former Special Operations officer Mark Taylor. Burdened by his own traumatic past, Mark has loved Lisa from afar. Now, for Lisa and her mother to survive, Mark must risk his life—and even more difficult for him, he must trust God—as one question haunts them all: Can Mark and Lisa untangle these deadly ties before it’s too late?


I related to the reminder that God has a purpose for each of us and while many hardships in our lives seem senseless and sometimes impossible to bear, there comes a time when we can look back and see how they prepared us for His purpose. I believe I have finally reached that place in my life where I can see how the pieces of my past experiences fit into my present.
If you enjoy action packed intrigue with a bit of romance, you’ll love this book.
Although this is the sequel to Forget Me Not, I can verify that you will not have had to read the first book to thoroughly enjoy the second. This is the first of Vicki Hinze’s books that I have read but I will definitely be looking for more.

Ms. Hinze includes a trailer of the book on her website. 

I received a free copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest review.
