<— PSYCH-THRILLER DARK READ ALERT!!! Gah!! I still think of this one (FREAKED ME OUT!!), and now there are three books!! I didn’t thrill over the ending of this one, but now it all makes sense. It’s a TRILOGY!! SQUEEEE!! LOL!!
Suspenseful, creepy, and quite terrifying. Beautiful girls are kidnapped and kept in an artificial “paradise” as “butterflies”. Collected. But… oh my… how sinister it is.
Di-Ann: Just finished The Butterfly Garden and OMG!! The writing was wonderful with a nice pace. Very unique storyline and a heroine the you feel for! Finished this book in one sitting. Loved it!
Tina: I waited to start this because I knew it was a trilogy but am in a book slump so I started this morning and just finished. I haven’t cried during a book in a long time and can’t wait until the next book. I think the fizzle at the ending is because we have to wait for the next book. I loved it!
Amanda: Omg it’s a trilogy!? What!? Butterfly garden was so creepy
About book #1:
Near an isolated mansion lies a beautiful garden.
In this garden grow luscious flowers, shady trees…and a collection of precious “butterflies”—young women who have been kidnapped and intricately tattooed to resemble their namesakes. Overseeing it all is the Gardener, a brutal, twisted man obsessed with capturing and preserving his lovely specimens.
When the garden is discovered, a survivor is brought in for questioning. FBI agents Victor Hanoverian and Brandon Eddison are tasked with piecing together one of the most stomach-churning cases of their careers. But the girl, known only as Maya, proves to be a puzzle herself.
As her story twists and turns, slowly shedding light on life in the Butterfly Garden, Maya reveals old grudges, new saviors, and horrific tales of a man who’d go to any length to hold beauty captive. But the more she shares, the more the agents have to wonder what she’s still hiding…
