About the Book

 


Book:  The Secret of the 14th Room

Author: Rebecca Hemlock

Publisher: Bluecap Publishing

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release date: March 16th

Memories can be a killer.

When Levi Corbin returns to Granton, Tennessee after the death of his beloved grandmother, it sets off a chain of events he’d rather have avoided. Claiming his inheritance should have been a piece of cake, but a cousin appears, threatening to steal it all.

Even worse (and better, too), he’s falling for the girl he just met and now must team up with her to try to stop his cousin. Their quest for his inheritance uncovers secrets frozen in time—and one might just be the answer to save his grandmother’s home.

Things go from worse to completely out of hand when a freak fire threatens it all. Add to that a nosy old woman and a battered runaway, and Levi can’t help but wonder what is going on!

As circumstances rekindle his faith and new love spurs him onward, Levi races against time and odds to save Grandma’s house from certain destruction, but the result might just mean saving himself as well.

More from Rebecca

Looking for new ideas is my favorite part of writing because it comes with talking to interesting people and exploring antique shops all over the country.

This book not only captures my love for American history and riveting romantic suspense, but it also captures how old wounds of the heart can be healed.

Levi Corbin in The Secret of the 14th Room learns this the hard way after carrying his broken heart for most of his adult life. He has to discover the real meaning of family and family pride. Levi must face the past so that he can move on to a brighter future.

Granton, Tennessee, is a town I hope you fall in love with, just as I did when I created it. There are so many delightful characters, some with a dark secret or two. This story has been brewing for a while, and I am glad that I finally have the opportunity to share it with you.

My Thoughts

This is the second book that I have had the chance to read from Rebecca Hemlock. While I must admit that the first one I'd read I was only so-so about, this one certainly left me wanting to read more from her. 

Since I was a kid I always loved stories about old houses and the mysteries within. Perhaps some of my earliest introductions to the mystery genre were those stories of hidden passageways and the like. Needless to say, this book with its old house filled with mystery and treasure was right up my alley... I was drawn in immediately and couldn't wait to see what secrets were hiding within the walls. Not only was this a good mystery, it was also a good story about family and forgiveness as well... not to mention a hint of romance too. All of these combined for a fun story that certainly did remind me of those earlier stories that made me fall in love with a good mystery to begin with. 

This was a very short read. I personally finished in just a few short hours. This was the case with the previous book I'd read by the author too. While that one had felt rushed and like I had really just finally gotten into the story when it ended, this one didn't feel that way at all. I would say that it felt rather complete except it DID end on a cliffhanger that has me anxious to see what is going to happen next! I cannot wait to read more.

If you enjoy a good mystery, this is certainly one to check out!
