Praise for Not This Time

“Vicki Hinze’s new thriller, Not This Time, hones suspense to a razored edge. Riveting, relentless, and fraught with betrayals, here is a novel that cuts both to the bone and to the heart. Not This Time should be retitled Not to be Missed.”
—James Rollins, New York Times best-selling author of The Devil Colony

“In Not This Time, Vicki Hinze has created a tense, suspenseful story, peopled with vivid characters and set against a backdrop of deadly danger. I can always count on Vicki for an absorbing story I’ll remember long after I’ve closed the
book, and Not This Time was no exception. Do yourself a favor and pick this book as your next read.”
—Kay Hooper, New York Times best-selling author

“Vicki Hinze has created a ‘keeper’! Not This Time is engrossing, entertaining, filled with excellently drawn and very real people, and a story that keeps you turning the pages!”
—Heather Graham, New York Times best-selling author

“Hinze paints her tale on a broad canvas, her writing expertly controlled, rich in imagination, deep in characterization. It’s a race against time and shadowy instincts, the narrative loud with surprises, the premise all-too-believable.”
—Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author of The Jefferson Key

“If you’re not already hooked on Vicki Hinze’s Crossroads Series, you will be this time. Not This Time is a tense and involving tale of crime and violence that takes the reader from the deepest darkness of the human heart to the light of redemption.”

Praise for Vicki Hinze


“Tense, breathless, multi-layered - and highly recommended.”
—Lee Child New York Times bestselling author

“Hinze has written amasterful, complicated tale of suspense that gains momentum with each turn of a page. Her writing flows surely,moving fromone character to the next, one setting to another, with readers keeping the swift pace.”
—Publisher’sWeekly

“[Hinze] keeps the pace brisk and the tension high. Don’t start reading too late at night—you may see 2:00 a.m.”
—Crosswalk.com

“Fans of Christian suspense will enjoy Hinze’s latest thriller.”
—Library Journal

“Excellent characterization and a compelling plot draw the reader in and never let go. Perhaps most importantly, the novel addresses the universal question of the purpose of pain and the importance of faith when all hope seems lost. Evil is unapologetically painted black and bold,making the redemptive power of Christ seem all that much more powerful. Deadly Ties is absolutely magnificent.”

Not This Time by Vicki Hinze was interesting book to read.  At times I got bogged down in all the details that she had in the book but other times I was glad that she had all the detail that she did.  I loved all of the characters & the setting of this book and it made me want to check out the first two books in the series and see what happened in them.  That being said I understood most of what was going on so you don't have to read them in...
