White Out by Danielle Girard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
After surviving a car accident on an icy road in Hagen, North Dakota, Lily Baker regains consciousness with no idea where or who she is. Scattered Bible verses and the image of a man lying in a pool of blood haunt her memory.
The same night of the accident, a young woman is murdered and tossed in a dumpster. Kylie Milliard, Hagen’s only detective, doesn’t immediately recognize the victim, but Kylie soon discovers that Lily and the dead woman share a dark past…if only Lily could remember what it was.
Lily and Kylie both want answers. But Kylie has to play by the book. Lily has to play it safe. And the more Lily learns about her identity, the more she fears the truth.
TITLE: White Out
AUTHOR: Danielle Girard
PUBLISHER: Thomas & Mercer
PUBLICATION DATE: August 1, 2020
White Out by Danielle Girard is a perfectly blended murder mystery and thriller with a wonderfully complex cast of characters; an amnesic woman, a female detective surrounded by small minded men in a small town and a seriously sketch tavern owner who’s more likely drunk than not. A series of seemingly random events unfolds but there’s more to the story than those involved are willing to admit and it seems everyone has a secret … or five. It’s up to Detective Kylie Hilliard to put the pieces together, not an easy task but her investigation will keep you on the edge of your seat and turning pages.
White Out is quickly paced and action packed, convoluted and baffling in the best possible way and, I’m happy to say, the first book in the Badlands Thriller series. I’m excited to see where Ms. Girard takes this series. My sincere thanks to Ms. Girard for providing me with a DRC of White Out in exchange for my honest review.
