Jennifer reviews Hidden Doors Secret Rooms...
Hidden Doors Secret Rooms by Jamie Eubanks, was an interesting and different read for me. A paranormal suspense thriller, I heard about it from someone on Twitter, thought it sounded interesting, and decided to try it.
Fast-paced, well written and creatively imagined, it was anything but predictable. Here’s the blurb:
HIDDEN DOORS, SECRET ROOMS - a paranormal suspense:
In this critically acclaimed paranormal suspense thriller, you'll meet Jillian Braedon, a woman who possesses a secret so explosive, it could change the world forever. On the run with her five-year-old daughter, stranded in the middle of a blizzard and seriously injured, Jill sends little Valerie off into the raging storm alone. The child stumbles onto the property of retired musician-turned-recluse, John Mills, begging for help. John soon finds himself caught up in their torment, and face-to-face with the pursuing covert agents who will do anything to destroy the secret, and permanently silence everyone involved.
I thought the adult characters were very well-developed. The child, a little less so. As a mom to two teens, I don’t recall a child as young as Valerie behaving the way she does in the book. However, my children could be different, and Valerie could be reacting to circumstances, so it’s not a huge problem. I did not expect the ending at all, and while I’m not sure I would have resolved it the way Eubanks did, it was satisfying.
If you’re in the mood for some excitement, I’d give this a try.
