“Intense, fast-paced suspense scenes left me holding my breath at times… How has this author escaped my reading radar? I’ll definitely be looking for more of her books!”

–Dora Hiers


A simple trip home for the holidays is all former FBI profiler Maggie Mason wants.  But a serial killer has other plans.  Trapped in a deadly game of cat and mouse, Maggie finds an ally in Lost, Inc. with private investigator, Dr. Ian Crane.  The handsome widower is reluctant to love again, and the last thing Maggie wants is to put Ian in the line of fire.  Love could cost them everything . . . unless they can find their way to each other in time for Christmas.

Spotlight Review Christmas Countdown is book number two in the Lost Inc. series by author Vicki Hinze. I loved the first book in the series, Survive The Night. Christmas Countdown is even better! It grabbed me from the first sentence, I couldn’t put it down! And I read it at Christmas time when I was suppose to be making presents, wrapping and doing something other than curled up with the dogs and my husband reading. I couldn’t help it. It was fast paced and had a strong female gun toting leading lady! I fell “in like” with the character of Maggie. Vicki made her come to life for me.

There was romance but definitely a good mystery. I really enjoy a good mystery, Vicki serves that up here. I can’t wait for book 3 which goes on sale in February. I buy most of my books on Kindle because our library is so full, but this series rates buying it in paperback. I had to have them on my shelves.  


Reader Reviews:

“Intense, fast-paced suspense scenes left me holding my breath at times… How has this author escaped my reading radar? I’ll definitely be looking for more of her books!”–Dora Hiers

“A FAST READ AND A GOOD STORY.” –Marlene via Amazon

“I absolutely loved it. I love the way your mind thinks Vicki. This book was nice and suspenseful.”–Katie via Goodreads

 ““Christmas Countdown” was full of suspense and guessing “who done it” or “who is it?” I could not put the book down. I needed to know the conclusion of who was responsible. Unfortunately, I have to wait to the third book to find out “who done it?” I can’t wait to find out! I received this book to review from The Book Club Network. I really give this book 4 1/2 stars out of 5. I recommend the series: The Lost, inc.” ~Linda Ortiz

In all of the three books, I love how Vicki Hinze made the main characters friends before romance to enter their minds. That and the fact that both characters had God as their foundation, even if one of them was lost. It’s also fitting how the agency they all work for is Lost, Inc. In Christmas Count Down Vicki seamlessly paints the connection of friendship and love with Maggie and Ian. I loved all three books and would recommend them to everyone I know.” ~Jenny, Book

Christmas Countdown is another excellent book by Vicki Hinze! The story of Maggie & Ian is brought to life in a very real way. God’s love & healing that offers hope for the future is expressed beautifully. Anyone who needs a reminder of God’s love will find it in this book.” ~Terri

“Intense!” ~Sammie Gross

Good Book, Good Author. Excellent read. If you enjoy mysteries, you will enjoy this one or any of her books…” ~Quilter Granny

My retired parents & I all loved Vicki Hinze’s Christmas Countdown as well as the rest of the Lost Incorporated series. Christmas Countdown has you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.” ~Sandra Wager
