Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris
This is a thriller/suspense novel (Rated PG-13)
(Four Chilling Hearts)
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??
There are a few reasons why I can't give this full marks. But mostly the book chilled me and had me eagerly turning the pages to find out how things would turn out. I'll probably be thinking about this one for a while.
I spent one day reading the hardback copy sent to me by the publishers. I’d briefly read the blurb in order to sign up to read it, but I’m not a blurb reader. I like to go in blind. Thankfully, by the time the book showed it, I didn’t quite remember what the book was about.
So I dived in. And within a day’s time, I’d read the entire book. This book doesn’t disappointment in entertainment value. It was worth the read for sure.
What was lacking? I think I needed more of what happened in the end. We see the stage set for events and then it skips to tell us the results. I needed more. I wanted that satisfaction of knowing more. Considering the POV, I know that is hard. But some authors on occasion will switch POV, thus giving us that extra. It’s hard to explain without spoilers. After the journey, I needed that little bit.
Otherwise, this was a spectacular read. I recommend it.
My NOT book boyfriend is Jack. (I went with Jamie as inspiration because I just finished the series the Fall and his character seems fitting.)
