White Out by Danielle Girard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A twisty, multi-person murder mystery set in a sleepy, small town, White Out is one of those fast-paced, evocative thrillers that you want to inhale in one go. I loved the writing, the characters, the setting, everything. Ferociously smart, intensely intriguing, it’s just a fun, speedy read.
The book begins with a bang: Lily wakes in a crashed car that’s hanging over a crash with a man she doesn’t know and with absolutely no memory. It’s a gripping beginning, and becomes even more tense as Lily stumbles away to the hospital, only to learn she works there. And then we find out she escaped from a serial killer many years ago.
There’s a lot of action, a lot of suspense, a lot of subplots all coming together in the end, and I was totally there for it. I love reading this sort of book in the summer. It’s perfect escapist reading.
