Behind Closed Doors
Behind Closed Doors | B. A. Paris
Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You might not want to like them, but you do. You'd like to get to know Grace better. But it's difficult, because you realise Jack and Grace are never apart. Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn't work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows. Sometimes, the perfect marriage is the perfect lie.

Thanks, #TeamDracula, for bumping this one up my TBR! I‘ve wanted to read it for a while! And it‘s certainly fast-paced with an #Obnoxious villain who is #Missing more of a backstory to explain his brand of evil! There are a few loose ends and implausible leaps that stopped me from really loving this. #AugustABC #AyUpAugust

I almost felt wrong reading this book. I was drawn in, couldn‘t put it down, but could hardly stand reading about this twisted marriage. It was a serious page turner & also the creepiest book ever!

I've heard mixed reviews on this one. I tend to go towards psychological thrillers though so had to give this book a chance. I really enjoyed the book. The main character was a little repetitive but I think it was just to extend the seriousness of what was going on. Makes you wonder about what other people are going through when no one is watching.

This book was disturbing on many levels. It really brought to light however how things can seem perfect when they aren‘t.

A textbook nightmare. The fear of losing your free will (that‘s as far as this scenario goes- I think the author was either to afraid or too unimaginative to take it anywhere truly dark), is all this book is. Neither the characters, the story, nor the writing is strong enough to engage a reader in any other way. Though i do not share this feat, I did, nevertheless, finish this book, which says something. A relatively entertaining vacation read.

Overall a good psychological thriller. The MC was a bit of a dum dum from the beginning, but you quickly forget about that as you root for her to survive.

Crazeedi I read one of hers I liked and one not so much... 2mo
RebL I can't say it's “great literature“ (whatever that means), but this is one of the few books I stayed up all night reading as an adult. No regrets. I loved the experience. 2mo
Jilly6183 @crazeedi I can see that based on her writing style. This is the only one I‘ve read. I‘d give another a try if someone lent it to me or I came across one in the discount section (where I picked up this one), but I didn‘t like this enough to go out my way to read her other work. 2mo

Absolutely brilliant! I tore through this psychological thriller in one day (by the pool 😃) and loved every gripping chapter. Told in my favourite format of chapters alternating between the past and the present, this is a story of mental manipulation and psychological blackmail. A must read for fans of the film Sleeping With The Enemy. I‘ll say no more for fear of spoilers but READ THIS BOOK! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I decided on “pick” because I definitely wanted to know the ending. I‘m glad I finished it BUT, I‘m left wanting to know more. I guess that‘s a good thing! Will there be a sequel?! I think the overall storyline is a little disturbing. Why does Jack feel so strongly about targeting whom he wants to? It‘s not quite explained and it‘s a bit morbid. Wish the last chapter was dedicated to the present life.

Jack and Grace have a questionable relationship. Why does Jack always go where Grace goes? Why does Jack insist on doing everything with his wife? As the story unfolds aspects get extremely uncomfortable (and slightly unrealistic) Grace is made to live an isolated life.

I don‘t know how I feel about this book. I should like it. It was a dark concept which I usually like, it didn‘t drag on, I‘ve heard it recommended heaps. But it wasn‘t as good as “the breakdown” in my opinion. Good, not great

B. A. Paris hit a home run with this very fast read!

My mom always said if something is too good to be true, then it‘s not true. So right away, I had my reservations about this “perfect couple.”

The truth is we really never know what goes on in relationships behind closed doors. This book gives insight into one very dark marriage.

Be prepared for a highly unexpected ending! Loved it!

This was a quick read and I couldn't put it down. B. A. Paris brings you on an emotional rollercoaster with this one. I enjoyed the past and present tense flashes; however, I felt that this also made it easier to figure out some of the twists. I do wish Paris had pushed the envelope just a bit more with Jack to truly set this book apart.

This was a very fast read about a very screwed up marriage, with a twist that was unexpected. That surprise was nice, but it did seem implausible. Grace was a frustrating character but still easy to root for, especially as the story progressed. This is one of those books that relies mainly on shock value and manipulation of emotion to keep the reader going, rather than plot or character development. It passed the time but won‘t stick with me.
