You know when you needed proof that Siri Mitchell is that rare sparkly unicorn of an author who can write any genre ever?

This is that proof.

This is genius and retains one of the strongest hooks I have ever read
3.5 stars
This is a mystery with multiple layers that kept me engaged. Whitney Garrison is an interesting protagonist in that she has a disorder that I had never heard of, face blindness, that causes her to not recognize faces. I looked it up to better understand her perspective. She has to remember other traits of an individual to recognize them, such as hair color/style, cologne, style of clothing, the way they walk, etc. What makes this story stressful is that she saw a murderer right after he

This book was different in any others that I have read.
Whitney has face blindness. Which means when she looks at you she can't see your face. just your hair, body and what you are wearing. She remembers you by voice and your scent, if wearing a co

Everywhere to Hide by Siri Mitchell is an intense mystery/thriller with a bit of romance. Holy Cryptocurrency! This book had me turning the pages until late in the night. I was so caught up in the story that I worried about Whitney, the heroine when I wasn't even reading the book. It was written in first person in the heroine's point of view, which was really well done. Kudos to the author. The heroine has a condition called face blindness. She can't see people's faces.

It took me a while to get into “Everywhere to Hide” by Siri Mitchell but once my interest was piqued I really enjoyed the story.

The cover was what drew me to read this book, the blurb intrigued me, and I already read Mitchell’s “A Constant Heart,” have several of her books on my want to read list, and not to mention, why not add another suspense to my autumn reads?!

If I’m honest, I have to say I didn’t LOVE the first half of the book, and I don’t know why, but as I was reading the endin

Wow! This book! I had never heard of face blindness before, so it was fascinating to read about it! Mitchell did an incredible job keeping you inside the main character's head and you always felt like you were seeing life exactly from their perspective in the most fascinating way! The mystery kept me on my toes with lots of twists and turns and i didn't see the ending coming. I struggled at times to relate to Whitney, maybe just because we're so different, but she was a complex and unique charac ...more

This was a fascinating book about Whitney, a young woman who witnesses a murder but can't identify anyone because she has a condition called "face blindness," I've heard of it but never read about it so this was really interesting to see (literally) through her eyes what she can and can't perceive. Working as a barista, she hopes to pass the bar exam and be an attorney when the unthinkable happens and she's drawn into a web of craziness with the police, the FBI, and her abusive ex-boyfriend.

An interesting twist on a heroine and cryptocurrency. Hints of romance. Lots of action. And a twist I saw coming but tried to talk myself out of. A very enjoyable read that suspense readers will enjoy.

The hook? The author and the description.
The line? Picking up the book and reading the first sentence.
The sinker? Reading and finishing the book in half a day.

I haven't accomplished much today except read this book (oh, I did do laundry and my devotions). I seriously am wowed about this story and Whitney's POV spun my head in circles in a good way. I felt how she felt. I witnessed events through her e

This book contains a lot of technical descriptions and facts and I found myself skimming over those details. The story line and characters were great. I have never heard of face blindness before but basically the person with this can not see faces. She can see the rest of the body but not the face. She witnessed a crime but can not describe the person or know if that person is near her. Very interesting story line and I had to keep reading to see what was going to happen Thank you to NetGalley w ...more

Everywhere to Hide was a very good suspense novel. I found the heroine to be a fascinating character. I've never read a book where the MC can't remember faces - even her own - and it was intense to read the story and see the world from her point of view.

I liked how the story had so many twists and the ending was great. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to happen. I also enjoyed the romance, even though it wasn't the main focus.

This was so good, you really have to read it! From the very beginning, you are dropped straight into the action. Someone has been murdered, and from that first page, I was pulled into the plot of the story and I did not want to leave.

Whitney Garrison was a character that I could and did connect with. She was real, vulnerable, and compassionate towards others. Because of her ex-boyfriend who was abusive towards her, she struggled with the trust of others. Her condition of face blindness was some

This was a solid mystery, and there were a number of twists to keep the reader engaged. I like the fact that I didn't figure things out too early.

I've heard about facial blindness in the past, but I don't think I've ever read a novel where that was a key part of the story. It was fascinating to read about it. There was a lot of technical info on cryptocurrency and global politics, which did bog things down a bit on occasion. However, it was also an area I don't know a lot about, so it was educa

Whitney Garrison saw the murder.

Saw the murderer.

Saw his face.

And yet, she has no idea what he looks like.

He could be anyone. Anywhere. The killer has…Everywhere to Hide.

The reason Whitney could witness the murder and murderer and not know his face is because she doesn’t recognize any faces. Prosopagnosia—or face blindness—is the mental inability to register facial distinctions. It’s a rare phenomenon, perhaps most eloquently explained by the British neurologist Oliver Sacks, who himself dealt w

Siri Mitchell came up with an interesting concept for this book. Face blindness. I had never heard of it. Two chapters in, I took a pause in my reading to do a little research. Turns out it’s a real thing. So what happens when someone with face blindness (Whitney, our protagonist) is the sole witness of a murder? How do you identify the murderer? And what do you do when the murderer then comes after you? Here we have Everywhere to Hide, with economics, cyber security, politics, and a bit of roma ...more

Everywhere to Hide is the first book by Siri Mitchell I have read and I thoroughly enjoyed it! It is a mystery first and foremost with hint of romance. Our main character, Whitney, has face blindness so although she saw the murderer, she has no way of identifying him. First she deals with local police but then it is taken over by the FBI.

This was an intricate story with lots of jargon about cryptocurrency which, to be honest, I tended to skim over as I don't have degrees in economics and/or fina

First off, wow. I really enjoyed this book! I almost never rate anything as a 5 star because I can usually find something I don't like (My only real criticism is that I hate the cover. I mean, this is a book about someone with facial blindness. So why are we featuring a cover with faces? But I digress.) and while I did think Whitney kind of came across as almost robotic and not very personable (I found the characters in this author's previous book to be the same way.) I will still say I liked he ...more

I absolutely loved "Everywhere to Hide" by Siri Mitchell. This was a book that I had a hard time putting down. It kept me up long past my bedtime! This book is written in the first person point of view, which is my favorite!

WOW what a fantastic romantic suspense. An edge of your seat page turning plot that pulled me immediately into the plot. This one kept me guessing. Suspense fans will not be disappointed. I received an advance ebook from the publisher and this is my unbiased review.

Another new exciting wonderful read from Siri Mitchell!
The cover is pretty cool too. Makes you stop and think about what's going on in the book. It's very mysterious!
I think I’m coming to love this new writing style of hers and I find myself looking forward to seeing what new terms and stories she comes up with to add the terms into. Her research is spot on!
Facial blindness is something new to me and what Whitney experiences. Plus, I’m sure there’s lots of other people who do too.

This book was not at all what I expected. I liked it but it stretched my brain cells a bit when the author was talking about cryptocurrency and China. If you are intrigued by that, you’ll probably love it. As for me, I enjoyed the story and was fascinated with the main character’s “disability” and in how that played out with her struggling to identify a killer. I felt that there were a few too many coincidences, but all in all it was a worthy read.

Preorder this book today! You won’t regret it. Especially if you love suspense with intriguing characters and problems.

Whitney Garrison keeps just wants to get by. Swamped in debt from attending a prestigious university, graduate school, and then law school, she works three jobs and studies for the bar exam in every spare minute. When she passes (if she passes) she knows she’ll find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow—a lucrative job with a big law firm in Washington D.C.

Her only problem?

I found Mitchell's novel to be interesting. While the mystery aspect of the plot was sufficient, the best part of the novel was that it dealt with some very relevant issues. I learned about cryptocurrency and blockchains. I also learned about tutoring for test taking. And perhaps the most significant issue was the influence of China on our nation's finances. China is the major debt holder for the U.S. With recent trade wars and withdrawal from national coalitions, the U.S. doesn't have many frie ...more

The author gives us a character with a very rare condition, prosopagnosia, or face blindness, she now has someone who seems to want her dead? Why? The answers are there, but we have non-stop action on our journey
We have a police detective who shows a lot of caring here, Leo goes out of his way to see to Whitney's safety.
When the answers come there are a lot of surprises, and some I never saw coming, and the reasons are not just plain greed, although, that is there, of course!

I really enjoyed this book. First, I didn’t realize that there was such a thing as facial blindness until I read this book. I looked it up Google and found that Siri’s description was spot on. She also did her homework on the China hacks and on cryptocurrency.

I liked that the book didn’t reveal the murderer too soon in the story. I thought that any of the characters could be a suspect based on the subtle hints but the author definitely kept me guessing. This was a very interesting book, keeping

I was quickly drawn in by the way this author wrote from a first-person point-of-view of a women who has face blindness - the official name, prosopagnosia. The condition is real and affects about 2.5% of our population. A person can have a head injury or be born with it like in the main character Whitney’s case. I am blown away and could not pull myself from this author’s new suspense thriller.

I was fascinated by Whitney and how she navigated the world with prosopagnosia. I liked Detective Leo a

Everywhere to Hide is the first book I have read by Ms. Mitchell, and I like her expressive style and excellent storytelling skills. Her characters are well-crafted and believable. I enjoyed the suspenseful plot even though it is a little predictable and was fascinated by the face blindness aspect of the story since I had never heard of this disorder. Although evidencing extensive research, the cryptocurrency aspect of the story to me is quite technical and tedious, but I like the way that real- ...more
