Best Forgotten by Paula Vince is a Christian psychological thriller. Courtney Lockwood is a young man who has amnesia after he is hit by a car. He cannot remember anything or anybody from his life so he tries to put the pieces of his life back together. He discovers unflattering facts and stories about his past that he doesn’t want to live with.
Two of my favorite characters were Matthew and Lucy, Courtney’s father and step-mother. It was interesting to see how Courtney’s relationship with them changed as the book went on. As well as the two of them being the Christian influences in Courtney’s life. I enjoyed Lucy because she struggled with jealously and forgiving; she seemed more real and less of a self-righteous Christian.
I enjoyed this book way more than I initially thought I would. The book had an original plot line that was captivating and well-written. Right from the beginning I was anxious to find out the mystery about Courtney’s life. With every page I learned a bit more and found that I could not put the book down. Nothing about the book was predictable!
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookCrash.com book review program, which requires an honest, though not necessarily positive, review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
