Review: Behind Closed Doors
Grace and Jack appear to have the perfect marriage. They’re beautiful, live in a gorgeous home, and seem to adore each other. Jack is a successful lawyer who represents battered women and Grace stays at home and attends to things on the home front. Things aren’t always as they appear, though – there’s something dark and disturbing beneath the surface of their glamorous life.
I don’t want to say too much more about the plot of BEHIND CLOSED DOORS by B. A. Paris for fear of giving something away. This is one of those books that I think it’s best to go in with little knowledge of the plot. This book is so compelling I didn’t want to set it down once I started it and actually gulped it all down in one day – something I haven’t done in a long time.
BEHIND CLOSED DOORS is fast-paced, gripping, and scary. Not scary in a horror sense but scary because it all felt so plausible to me. (Although some of the characters’ actions did horrify me.) I loved this book and suspect it will make my list of favorites for the year. I wanted to find someone to talk to about this book when I was finished so I think it would make a great book club pick. If you enjoy mysteries and/or thrillers, you won’t want to miss BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.
