I couldn't put this book down! It kept me guessing as I turned each page, not knowing what would happen next! It was reminescent of "Flowers in the Attic". Exceptional writing! I love the way she lures the reader into the book, and writes in a way that leaves you on the edge of your seat. This is definitely a page turner! I can't wait to read more fantastically twisted tales from Jessica! I am recommending this book to all my friends who love to read dark and "outside the norm" books :) I hope she Jessica McHugh keeps writing books as wonderful as this!Was this review helpful?

I want to take the time to thank Jessica McHugh for giving me the opportunity to read and review her book, Rabbits in the Garden.
I read Rabbits in the Garden in less than a day! By the end of Chapter 2, you will discover the meaning behind the book title but it will also keep you guessing. I was glued to the pages. Each character was so twisted in their own way, but it all stemmed from one person, Faye Norton. I didn't realize one person can make such a difference and affect the lives of so many. This book is very hard to put down because you want to get to the end. I wanted to see how it ended to see if I could make sense of everything that happened.
The book is centered around Avery Norton. Her best friend and boyfriend, Paul never wavered from how he felt about Avery. Avery's mother Faye, is sick and so twisted. I had a difficult time understanding her motives but as you keep reading, you will realize that you will never understand her way of thinking. I felt so many emotions as I was reading this book. Faye turned her own daughters against each other by the lies she told each of them. She also alienated her daughters and I felt so gratified when they finally realized it.
There are character you will love and some you will hate. McHugh describes every detail so well that I can picture what I am reading. The dialogue, the descriptions keep you glued to the end. I loved the ending. Avery found what she was looking for and what she needed to move on with her life.
