    A twisty mystery told from multiple POVs I will start by saying this book definitely required suspension of belief because there were a lot of implausible situations, plot holes and questions left unanswered but it was such a quick read that I just rolled with it There was murder, amnesia, kidnapping, a suspected cult, drug abuse, small town politics andThere was A LOT going on here and at times it felt like too much for me I much prefer for things to be fully explained and fleshed out A twisty mystery told from multiple POVs I will start by saying this book definitely required suspension of belief because there were a lot of implausible situations, plot holes and questions left unanswered but it was such a quick read that I just rolled with it There was murder, amnesia, kidnapping, a suspected cult, drug abuse, small town politics andThere was A LOT going on here and at times it felt like too much for me I much prefer for things to be fully explained and fleshed out, versus having so much thrown at me Not my favorite mystery but not the worst I ve read either

    This thriller had some twists and turns but unfortunately they came at a point in which I had already lost most of my interest in the story The book starts off in a decent fashion and has potential but a key plot point annoyed me I can go with the flow and believe one character doesn t recall certain events But two characters That s asking too much of this reader.Lily Baker was unconscious and when she comes to she realizes she was a passenger in a bad car accident That s pretty much the on This thriller had some twists and turns but unfortunately they came at a point in which I had already lost most of my interest in the story The book starts off in a decent fashion and has potential but a key plot point annoyed me I can go with the flow and believe one character doesn t recall certain events But two characters That s asking too much of this reader.Lily Baker was unconscious and when she comes to she realizes she was a passenger in a bad car accident That s pretty much the only thing she realizes as she has no idea who she is, how she got there, or the identity of the man in the driver s seat who is unresponsive Her gut instinct is telling her she better quickly leave the scene of the accident Detective Kylie Milliard is investigating the murder of a young woman The story will alternate between several characters including Lily and Kylie.Lily has an interesting backstory and by far I felt most invested in the chapters featuring her There wasn t anything horribly wrong with Kylie as a character but she didn t really stand out either I have mixed feelings about the third character who was featured I wish the author could have come up with a different way to incorporate him into the story that didn t involve him not remembering stuff either And there were some minor things here and there that made me question if that s how a situation would realistically play out Instead of losing myself in the story, eventually my interest level took a nosedive..Even though my review sounds mostly negative, this wasn t a horrible read It wasn t a simple plot that the author just churned out I just think it needed some fine tuning As a Kindle First Reads pick, it is slightly above average in the thriller category This book appears to be the first in a planned series and while I did have some issues, I m curious what the author has in store for future books

    In White Out, Danielle Girard masters the perfect blend of action packed suspense and small town murder mystery in the first of her Badlands Thriller series When murder shakes a sleepy North Dakota town, detective Kylie sees it as her ticket out of town, but all is not as it seems Smart and razor sharp, a fantastic story that will have you one clicking the rest of the series.

    WHITE OUT is a superb thriller intense, intricate, and so intriguing I loved getting to know Detective Kylie Milliard She is a total badass, and Girard is a one heck of a storyteller The start of a fabulous new series.

    A huge thank you to Danielle Girard for reaching out to be via Instagram and asking that I review White Out Moments like this are the sole reason I joined the Bookstagram community and I immediately stopped what I was reading at the time to dive into this one and was LITERALLY GLUED TO MY KINDLE for hours on end because I couldn t stop reading it There is something so special when a mystery thriller novel has all of the perfect pieces in place heart stopping chapters, well written and belie A huge thank you to Danielle Girard for reaching out to be via Instagram and asking that I review White Out Moments like this are the sole reason I joined the Bookstagram community and I immediately stopped what I was reading at the time to dive into this one and was LITERALLY GLUED TO MY KINDLE for hours on end because I couldn t stop reading it There is something so special when a mystery thriller novel has all of the perfect pieces in place heart stopping chapters, well written and believable characters , the perfect amount of suspense and of course the elegant way Girard created twists and turns that kept you breathless and clueless til the very end I was so invested in every character of this book and while reading, I almost felt like they were a part of my family The one word I could use to describe this novel was CONSUMED And consumed in the best way possible Heck, I even brought my kindle to a bonfire and slipped off for 15 minutes just so I could keep reading.If I had anything negative to add which I don t because I am utterly OBSESSED with this book it would be that I wish the readers got to know Dectective Milliard a bitWhile the chapters flipped between characters, I found myself wantingof Kylie who she is, where she comes from, her background, etc I assume this was done intentionally as this is book one of Girard s new series, so I look forward to learningabout her character in future novels Also, I wish that we had learnedabout Lily s life in captivity There were only short bursts of information given and I think it would have helped round out the narrative a bit better Perhaps Lily present day and Lily before I think it would have added an additional element of intrigue.All in all, this book has solidified its place in my top 5 for 2020 and it s only February I will be sharing with all of my friends and followers that this is a MUST READ for anyone who loves mystery thrillers Bravo to Girard this was an absolute masterpiece to read
