Women’s Fiction Review – Suburban Hell

Suburban Hell by Maureen Kilmer

Review by Melissa B. (dragoneyes)

The cover of this book immediately caught my eye. It was put on my wish list before it even came out. Yet, when it did, the reviews were less than stellar. The urge for the book fell flat and it wasn’t until much later that the book popped up in one of my searches. In that, I saw the reviews had gotten better so I decided to order it. It ended up being worth it.

The story surrounds best friends, Amy, Melissa, Jess and Liz. While they are very different in their own way, they have a strong bond. They get together once a month to drink and chat. This time around they are meeting a Liz’s. After hanging out for awhile they decide to go to the backyard where Liz is going to have their own She Shed built. They christen the ground and immediately weird things happen. As days go by, they notice Liz acting strange. As it gets worse they determine that she is possessed. When no one else will listen, they decide to take matters into their own hands to fight the evil lurking inside their friend.

Now, if you looking for a scary story, this one is not. It does have some creepy moments to it but that is as far as it goes. What it does have is the bonds of sisterhood and a great sense of humor. The only thing that took away from the book was it lagged in some parts but most of the time it was quite a fun fest. Ready to read this author’s next book, Hex Education.
