Satan's Garden: A Novel by Kit Lyman brings us into the life of Dani and Keely who imagine that life is more magical than others do. The twin sisters felt that often it was them against the world until something else interfered with that. The man who broke into their lives stole Dani away and left the damage to be dealt with by both sisters.
This novel is chock full of suspense and interesting choices that will bring you in and latch you onto the characters and their struggle. I enjoyed the way that it is written, giving you both girls' perspectives - not in flashbacks but in the details as they know them, as they live and feel them. I found the whole story gripping from the first few pages until the last and the style flows very well. Kit Lyman has really done a perfect job of putting the story together and telling it in a way that makes it enjoyable to readers. I never would have known this was her freshman work! Whether you are a mystery reader or someone who is just dabbling in the genre, this book is going to have something for you. While I read suspense and mysteries these days, I find myself preferring other styles more. That did not end up being the case with Satan’s Garden. I am glad I took the chance to read this because I enjoyed every word. I am looking forward to reading more by Kit Lyman in the future.
