"Holmes likes to use language vividly and originally ... [She] also uses patterns of imagery to convey her themes. In one of my favourite stories, 'Nuts and Bolts', a childfree couple choose not to spend a holiday with friends..." Ruth Latta, The Compulsive Reader
" The stories aren't ghost stories, but there's an eerie coolness in Holmes's work ...In every story, there is something lurking just beyond the edges of eyesight." - E. D. Watson, Front Porch Journal
