Not a typical read for me, but I REALLY enjoyed this one. I'm copying the synopsis from Amazon: Jillian Braedon possesses a secret so explosive that she must be silenced. On the run with her five-year-old daughter, stranded in the middle of a blizzard and critically 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 silence everyone involved.

A little bit of sci-fi, a lot of action, a bit of romance - it was good. And this was the author's first book? Someone to watch for........... ( )

This book is well-written, with a unique plot that will leave you thinking about the possibilities long after you read the last page.

The pace is a consistent medium flow throughout much of the story, more like a simmer than a rolling boil. We have a lot of lead-ins and build-up of suspense as we try to fit all the pieces together. I thought the author handled this well. I had enough connection to understand the story, but also enough unanswered questions to keep me wanting more.

There is no information dump of characters and their backgrounds. Instead, we get to know the characters as the plot unfolds. Details are given in little servings, allowing us to get to know them as we might any friend in our lives. This also keeps their secrets so they are likable while remaining mysterious.

My one problem came with the ending, which felt rushed and slightly overblown. But I did love the twist that came just before all the action spiraled into overdrive.

Overall, this is a complex, thought-provoking story for anyone who likes a little "what if" with their suspense. ( )

If you feel like reading a fast-paced, action-packed mystery/suspense novel, then “Hidden Doors, Secret Rooms” is the best choice you could make. Even though it is the author’s debut novel, this unconventional story will take you by surprise and blow your mind the moment you realize that it is so much more than the description suggests. Jamie Eubanks has done a great job at balancing the plot and the characters’ backstories, and at keeping readers on the edge of their seats by revealing all the mysteries little by little.

Jillian Braedon is on the run from the FBI because she knows a secret for which there are people who want her silenced. She has no choice but to take her five-year-old daughter, Valerie, with her. Things get complicated and very dangerous when they are caught in the middle of a blizzard, and Jill is badly injured. Her only chance is to send Valerie off into the raging storm and hope that she would find help. The girl finds the house of a retired musician, John Mills, who manages to find Jill alive in the storm, even though he walks with the aid of a cane. However, once Mills brings Jill and Valerie into his house, he gets caught up in their torment. He decides to keep them hidden from the FBI, and asks his friend, Mel Talbot, a brilliant computer hacker, to help them.

Jamie Eubanks is an incredible storyteller. She manages to introduce backstory through character interaction and dreams, so that the readers wouldn’t feel overwhelmed by too much information. She is amazing when it comes to showing, not telling, which makes her book a great example for aspiring authors who are still trying to find their voice and writing technique. Her characters are very well-developed and realistic, and readers will find it easy to relate to Jill and John, especially because John’s backstory is absolutely heart-breaking. His wife and child died in an accident, and since then he has been living in isolation, unwilling to have anything to do with the world. Jill and Valerie will give him hope and, eventually, change his life completely.

Mystery, science fiction, adventure, romance… “Hidden Doors, Secret Rooms” has everything it needs to become a must-read for any fan of the genre. Once you start reading it, you won’t be able to put it down. It is one of those novels that people start recommending to their friends the moment they turn the last page.
