Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris

Hardcover, 304 pages
Published August 9th 2016 by St. Martin's Press (first published February 11th 2016)
Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace: he has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You'd like to get to know Grace better. But it's difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are never apart. Some might call this true love.

Picture this: a dinner party at their perfect home, the conversation and wine flowing. They appear to be in their element while entertaining. And Grace's friends are eager to reciprocate with lunch the following week. Grace wants to go, but knows she never will. Her friends call—so why doesn't Grace ever answer the phone? And how can she cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim?

And why are there bars on one of the bedroom windows?

The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie?

My Thoughts…

Talk about a messed up story!  Oh My Gosh.      I loved it!     Behind Closed Doors proves that you should never ever ever judge another person’s relationship by what you see.       Jack and Grace appeared to have it all.    Jack is a successful lawyer, Grace is beautiful, together they are perfect right?    Yea… not so much.     Jack is psycho!     Even that word is too nice for him.      I read the last page looked at my husband and said this might be the most messed up story I have ever read.   He asked if I liked it, I said yea.    Just got a head shake from him.   

The feelings I felt while reading this were not the normal book feelings.     There was never ever a warm loving feeling between Jack and Grace.    There was never a point where I went awe, I wish my relationship was like theirs.      I was sick to my stomach, concerned, and almost hopeless.     My thought was that Grace had to figure out how to get out of this relationship with her husband but could she do it before he kills her or her sister?    

I loved Esther was amazing.   I loved her as the neighbor.   From the first meeting you could tell she was suspicious of Jack yet she knew she had to hold back and bide her time.    Any missteps could push Jack over the edge.     I liked that she didn’t ever give up on Grace.   She was her support even when Grace was locked away. 

B.A. Paris wrote a novel that I could not put down.   I definitely recommend picking up your own copy.
