Review by: Allyson Wilson on April 19, 2011 : star star star star star
House of the Matriarch (ISBN#: 978-1-4581-8492-4) explores the relationships of Anna and her five granddaughters. Anna, who made her living as a fortune teller, calls all of her grandchildren back to the house they visited during the summers of their childhood for the reading of her will, and then a seance. As the story progresses the women learn more about each other and themselves as they try to uncover the mystery behind their grandmother's disappearance. Set in Southwest Louisiana, House of the Matriarch has a smart, sexy, gritty tone that pulls the reader in quickly. At times comedic, sensual, and horrific, it is engaging and entertaining from start to finish.
