Praise for Hillary Broome Novels
House of Cuts
A maniacal butcher, a journalist/teacher with a shameful secret, and a cigar-toting detective set the stage for this psychological thriller, the first in a series of Hillary Broome novels. Set in California's Central Valley, House of Cuts involves suspense, intrigue, and a burgeoning romance. My favorite things about this novel include the dialogue, the wonderful details, and its sense of place—from the lush walnut orchards of Morada, CA, to PriceCuts, what Gillam terms the "24/7 machine," the kind of superstore familiar to any modern reader. I also enjoyed the fact that eight of the fifty-one chapters are told from killer Melvin's point of view so that I was able to get a first-hand glimpse into his demented, mother-obsessed mind.
~Candace Andrews, author of High Tides: Wading Through Depression—Every Day
House of Dads
One of Gillam's strong virtues as a writer is her ability to enmesh you, the reader, in the many layered action of the story until you become that close and helpless bystander who must live every unspeakable thing out with the characters. Too bad about the hundred things and obligations with their gummy fingers on you. Too bad until the story is finished, for you are not free to return focus to your own life, not yet. When you close the book at last, it is with a sigh of relief and gratitude and satisfaction that YOU don't have to live out such things yourself as you and the characters have experienced together. Oh, but all will linger in your mind. And at the same time, you will already have an eye out for the next Hillary Broome adventure!
~Zoe Keithley, author of The Calling of Mother Adelli
House of Eire
Hillary Broome returns to her Irish roots to uncover not only her family's history, but the Emerald Island's betrayal of its own people. This poignant story taps into the yearning we all have to uncover our beginnings. We try to carve away the protective facades of civilization but often are left naked and fatally exposed to the unexpected. June Gillam presents a fascinating tale of the past clashing with the present. It's a story of lost love, murder, magic and ghosts in the fairytale land of the shamrocks.
~ J. J. Lamb & Bette Golden Lamb, authors of the Gina Mazzio RN "Bone" series
Buy the Book: Amazon ~ Barnes and Noble
Although House of Eire is a stand-alone novel, the author is willing to send bloggers the first two books in the series.
