In a desire to expand my reading horizons, I read Rabbit Hole, my first time travel book. I had no idea what to expect, and much to my surprise, I loved it!

Garrett Smith is a collaboration between husband Michael Smith and wife Cynthia Garrett, and this is their first novel. I thought they did a great job with the story. There were many things I liked about the book. The premise was intriguing. Someone or some organization was going back in time to change historical events for selfish reasons. The bad guys also kidnapped Marcus, the major brain of the commercial Time Travel outfit Rabbit Hole. The director of Corrective Mission at Paradox Force, Special Forces operative Nick Canton teamed up with Rabbit Hole personnel to try to thwart the perps and to save Marcus. Another positive is when first introduced, each character had a physical description and a backstory. I always find this type of info enhances my enjoyment of a novel and helps me keep the characters straight. Garrett Smith kept the number of characters down, which was also helpful. The protagonists were likable and well-developed, and there was a bit of romance between the two leads. I loved the historical references in Rabbit Hole, and it was downright fun having the protagonists go back in time to try to "undo" the changes wrought by the villains. The whole book kept me engrossed, but the last 20-25% was so gripping, I sacrificed some of my weekend chores in order to read this portion of the book uninterrupted. The ending fooled me, which I always like.

I highly recommend Rabbit Hole to time travel fans, to thriller fans (like myself), and to anyone else who wants to sample the time travel genre. As this book is subtitled The Paradox Series, #1, there will likely be at least one sequel. I will definitely read it (them).

5 stars.

I read this book as part of a GoodReads time travel group read and appreciate the authors sharing their work.

Rabbit Hole has a strong, simple premise. Agents of a government operated time travel tourism agency go rogue and try to use the technology for personal gain. Our heroes, the curvaceous Nora, and ex-Marine, Nick, have to use the same technology to stop them and prevent history from being rewritten.
The story is action-packed and full of characters that battle on behalf of their respective branches for ultimate control of the time travel “Bubble” technology. The paradoxical changes to time and their respective fixes provide some humorous alternate realities including Charlton Heston as president, a South American retiree Hitler, and other short-lived switches. The authors clearly had fun playing with the genre and its ability to tweak history as we know it. We even get a few cameo appearances from famous names like Nikola Tesla.

Unfortunately, as much as I wanted to like this book for its positives, it got bogged down by its deficiencies. It read very much like a first or second draft of a story that got published before it got the editing it needed. The descriptions are formulaic, with the introduction of each new character being followed by a block of description listing their height, age, weight and hair color. The exposition relies heavily on backstory that often feels forced, such as when the heroine backs out of the parking space at her work that she has used for years and is inspired to go into a lengthy reflection on her office building, the history of the property, and how the company’s corporate policies came about. This is followed by her driving for an hour, so we get an entire chapter of backstory on the character at her destination.

Just by looking at the title, you must all be thinking "Oh wow. This is going to be another retell of Alice In Wonderland." How many of those have we, as readers, seen? And yes, this factor may dissuade particular readers from picking it up. I halfheartedly admit that when I first received this book, I was hesitant on reading it. But we should all learn something from this review: Don't judge a book by its cover! I admit I was totally wrong about this book. It was a superb tale, one that I wouldn't mind sharing with all of you today. So let's get into the review!
Yes! Rabbit Hole by Garrett Smith brings back the subject of time travel. Man, don't we all just love time travel? Unlike most books surrounding time travel, the author does not ramble on and on about history like some lame social studies teacher would. This book took place sometime in the future future in the year of 2025 where time travel has been discovered, indeed. What I loved most about this book was how the author captured the true brutality of mankind's greed and opportunity. Sometime in the future when time travel is discovered, there isn't a doubt in my mind that people would fight and kill for that kind of power over history. The book followed a secret agency named Paradox that fought for the possession of time travel against the Rippers, who wanted nothing more than to screw with history for selfish needs.
I was so euphoric when I came across such descriptive details of both the characters and the settings. The author grabbed my attention mentioning the approximated height, weight, structure, eye color, and even the posture of some of the characters in the book.
