My review of Behind Closed Doors by 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. Though, 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.

This book was a stunning psychological thriller – it grips you by the throat and holds on to you until the end.  The book covers controlling psychotic behaviour and domestic abuse without any niceties.   I liked the characters of Grace and her sister but boy did I detest Jack with a passion.  I don’t think I’ve disliked a main character in a book so much for such a long time, he frustrated me, made my skin crawl and you really could feel for Grace and what she was going through.  Its a harrowing story and without spoilers could really make you question everything you know about the people close to you and your family and friends.  An excellent start to books the books coming out in 2016, there are some real crackers out there – 5 stars from me.  This book is out now.
