Book Review: House of Eire




Hillary Broome is back! As she travels through Ireland and learns more about her friend’s crusade, she uncovers secrets and mysterious forces nudging her to fly away home.
House of Eire by June Gillam


The past and present come together in this book, House of Eire.  In some part of us there is a yearning to discover where we come from and who we are.  Hilary Broome is no exception.  Hilary seems like the average human that lives in California.  This is not the case.  Hilary decides to return to where her family grew up, Ireland.  She gets more than she bargained for.  Not only does she uncover her roots in Ireland but she uncovers a dark past.  One that will haunt her.  She discovers betrayal of Emerald Island's own people.

I did not realize how much one author pack into one book without it being overwhelming and confusing .  This author did a fabulous job with the mystery, the suspense, and the plot of the book.  this book is a page turner.  It is an easy to follow book.  What a lovely book.  The cover of the book fits the story perfect.  It is simple but beautiful and attractive.    

This is the third book in the Hillary Broome series but this series can be read in any order.  This is the first book I have read.

I really have no complaints about this book.  It is a fabulous read, as I stated before.  It has mystery, history, and adventure,  What could there be not to like.  It is a murder mystery so be aware if this genre is not for you.

This is a five star book.   Great book from this author.  I hope to read more in this series.

I received this book from iRead book Tours for an honest review

Praise of House of Eire


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
