Book Club: Behind Closed Doors by B A Paris


Have you ever read a book that just infuriates you?

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?

♥ Behind Closed Doors infuriated me. The characters annoyed me and the story line just aggravated me. Maybe I shouldn’t have read it but then again I wouldn’t have known.

The story starts off at a dinner party hosted by Grace and Jack. Everything seems so hunky dory and perfectly normal that you start to admire this couple. But then everything changes and the story progresses from calm to creepy and then to traumatising.

This isn’t the normal thriller we’re used to reading. This one works its way into your mind. So much so, that every couple you see, you start to question their behaviour, mannerisms and even so far as their body language.

This book definitely goes against the famous saying of “it was love at first sight“.

You never know who you’re marrying or what happens Behind Closed Doors.

If you’re up for the challenge, I suggest reading it with caution. If you don’t want your blood to boil or your nerves on their last straw, step away 🙂
