Editorial Reviews

Review

Cold Hollow has a very strong cover, with a very evocative image that clearly conveys tone and genre.The interior is well-designed and laid out, and is easy to read on a variety of different devices. The first chapter, the prologue, really packs a punch, as several different residents of the town either plot to commit murder, actually commit murder, or die. A family with young children, the Barner family, moves to the isolated Vermont town of Cold Hollow, only to learn that there are horrifying and dangerous forces at work in the town. The writing has a smooth and commercial feel to it, and the sense of menace at work in the town is palpable. Sophia and Angus are strong characters, very well-drawn, and their desire to keep their family safe is compelling. There were several big twists in the novel which were somewhat surprising, which was refreshing from a horror novel, which can be quite predictable. ~ Judges commentary, 3rd Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published eBook Awards


This absorbing, fast-paced story grabs readers from the very first pages, zeroing in on characters embroiled in engrossing situations including a battered wife determined to end the cycle of abuse, an overtired trucker pushing his limits to earn a much-needed bonus, and an unemployed ranger who is about to be taught a painful lesson. Most of the story centers on the Barner family and their arrival in Cold Hollow, an idyllic town in Vermont that quickly shows it has a dangerous, sinister side. The novel is well written, moves along at a good pace, and holds the reader's interest throughout. ~BookLife Prize in Fiction


Emilie J. Howard's darkly suspenseful thriller, Cold Hollow, is set in what I instantly thought of as sheer paradise. Cold Hollow is situated in a woodsy wonderland, and that four-bedroom log cabin on four acres of land sounded very appealing indeed. As Sophie stood her ground against the sinister Nazar, I began to realize that the hints and subtle tones of darkness Howard paints her story with were merely the beginning of this deliciously chilling noir mystery. Howard deftly creates a town filled with people I wanted to get to know, flawed but so down-to-earth and utterly humane. Her plot is ingenious, and her story moves beautifully. I was thrilled to discover that this is just the first book in the Cold Hollow Mystery Series, as I wanted to get to know Myra, Tom and the other Cold Hollow inhabitants even better than I do now. Howard's writing is smooth and fluid, and Cold Hollow is a book that you just won't want to put down until the last page is finished. Cold Hollow: Cold Hollow Mysteries, Book One is most highly recommended. ~ Readers' Favorite

About the Author

Emilie J. Howard wishes she could tout that she was “The Most Interesting Woman in the World,” but she can’t. Falcons don’t perch upon her shoulders, she was never a famous bullfighter, and she never had a volcano named after her. She is a spirited woman who doesn’t always have the opportunity to write, but when she does, she does so with a keen eye towards unusual character traits in people. Emilie weaves stories in her mind, puts the bits and pieces together, and ends up with finely woven tapestries. She seems to be infatuated with the spokesperson for Dos Equis. Her husband should be worried.
