A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Everywhere to Hide by Siri Mitchell {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for consideration. All thoughts are my own.  

How does a woman protect herself from an enemy she can’t see?

Law school graduate Whitney Garrison is a survivor. She admirably deals with her mother’s death, mounting student debt, dwindling job opportunities, an abusive boyfriend, and a rare neurological condition that prevents her from recognizing human faces.

But witnessing a murder might be the crisis she can’t overcome.

The killer has every advantage. Though Whitney saw him, she has no idea what he looks like. He knows where she lives and works. He anticipates her every move. Worst of all, he’s hiding in plain sight and believes she has information he needs. Information worth killing for. Again.

As the hunter drives his prey into a net of terror and international intrigue, Whitney’s only ally, Detective Leo Baroni, is taken off the case. Stripped of all semblance of safety, Whitney must suspect everyone and trust no one—and fight to come out alive.

Imagine: you're the only witness to a killer. He knows what you look like, and everything about you... but you are unable to recognize him. Chilling thought, isn't it? This is just what happens in Siri Mitchell's latest novel, Everywhere to Hide

In this story, we meet Whitney. She has witnessed a killer, but due to a rare (but very real) condition called facial blindness, she is unable to identify him... or anyone in her life! She knows only that someone is out to get her, and it could be absolutely anyone. With the help of her new friend and ally Leo, can they discover what's going on before it's too late?

I absolutely loved the premise of this story. It was so unique of an idea, and executed quite well. Because the story was written in first person, we are brought into Whitney's mind and forced to 'see' what she sees. I found myself trying to stand in her shows, imagining the insecurity that must come along with not knowing who anyone around me truly was and how vulnerable that could make a person. It certainly made me as a reader think, and upped the drama in this high paced suspense. The author did a great job of explaining just what Whitney could and could not see, making it easier to imagine being in her place. The action started right from the beginning and didn't let up to the very end, leaving me unable to put it down. 

There was a bit of romance mixed into the story too, and while I enjoyed it, I certainly felt like the action took center stage in this story. Overall, this is a unique and exciting read that fans of suspense are sure to want to add to their reading list. I loved it!
