Jan Christensen: Blackout
 4 stars

Who is she? Battered and bruised, she first becomes aware of her total loss of memory while walking on a dark, lonely road. Before she arrives in an unfamiliar town called Valleyview, she makes up a name-Alice Strong--and claims she's eighteen. Her injuries heal and she accepts a job at the local nursing home. During her first day of work, a patient passes away, posed as if ready for burial. Alice can't understand why the death of an old woman she doesn't know hits her so hard. When a second resident dies in the same position, the director of nurses, Betty Cranston, is positive residents are being murdered. She fears for her paralyzed mother. And she suspects Alice. Alice must remember her past to help prove her innocence. When she remembers this wasn't her first blackout, dread holds her back because what she does recall might all disappear a third time. Can she piece her puzzle together before the killer strikes again? Should she even try?


I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.

This book wasn't my usual genre. Normally I read mostly fantasy, but it's good to read something different once in a while and still was great chance to do just that. I liked the book and I'm goingto give it 4 stars. I was thinking something between 3 and 4 stars, but in the end I decided that 4 stars was closer.

The summary tells pretty good what this book is about, so I'm not going to tell anything more about it, so I don't spoil too much or repeat things. As I said before, this was not my usual genre, but when I was younger I used to read lot of books like this one. It was nice to read murdermystery that wasn't so gory or violent. Sometimes there were times when I was bit confused when POV changed and time changed, but recovered quickly and I was back on track. It was also nice that the real villain was relealed just in the end, it didn't guess it at all.

This was a bit minireview, but I really don't know what else to write. I liked it and that's it. :)
