House of Eire

Book Description for House of Eire:

In House of Eire, Hillary Broome, a reporter-turned-ghostwriter from Lodi, California, and her detective husband Ed fly to Ireland—Ed for a gang conference in Dublin and Hillary to research her ancestors in Galway.

As Hillary travels through Ireland and learns more about her friend’s crusade, she uncovers secrets and mysterious forces nudging her to fly away home.

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

House of Eire Review

House of Eire by June Gillam is the third book in the Hillary Broome Novels series. I received all of the book in the series for free for only my honest and unbiased review. I can tell you honestly that it is best to begin by reading books one and two in the series before diving into book three as it gives you more insight into the characters and the author's writing style. That said House of Eire by June Gillam can be read by itself and the reader will not miss out on any extremely vital information in giving books one and two a miss.

House of Eire by June Gillam is a well written novel that follows Hillary Broome to Ireland as she works to uncover more secrets and mysteries. I greatly enjoyed House of Eire by June Gillam because not only did it have an amazing plot line, but it also had a strong female character as the main character.
