Behind Closed Doors Reviews
I thoroughly enjoyed this debut novel by B.A.Paris and would recommend it to fans of psychological thrillers.
The novel is told alternating from past to present and builds up the tension page by page. Jack and Grace have the perfect life and the perfect marriage. Jack is a successful attorney who specialises in cases that involve physically abused women and Grace a professional who gave up her excellent job when she married Jack.
Jack who at first is a true gentleman turns into a controlling and ...more
Oh, the Russian roulette of having blind faith in a complete stranger’s book recommendation!
“Oh, you’ll love this,” gushed a crocodile-skinned English lady at my Thai resort hotel. “It’s partly set in Thailand and it’s a real page-turner.”
There followed one of the most ridiculous reads I’ve ever had the misfortune to experience. I’m completely baffled by all the five-star reviews for this one-dimensional yawnfest and the contrived storyline has to rank as one of the most implausible of all time. ...more
"‘Fear,’ he whispered. ‘There is nothing quite like it. I love how it looks, I love how it feels, I love how it smells. And I especially love the sound of it.’ I felt his tongue on my cheek. ‘I even love the taste of it.’"
Before starting this one keep in mind that appearances can be deceiving. “Behind Closed Doors” is a gripping, thought-provoking thriller with some psychological and mystery elements that will keep you at the edge of your seat. The story has some interesting twists ...more
The book opens at a dinner party, held at Jack and Grace’s ‘perfect’ house. Jack is a successful lawyer, Grace an ex-buyer for the upmarket Harrods store, in London. The meal has been brilliantly prepared by Grace, though it’s clear she had to expend much more energy than she’d wanted to deliver to Jack’s expected standard. One of the guests is a new acquaintance of Jack’s and his wife is making slightly bitchy comments to Grace and asking her a series of questions about her life and her relatio ...more
(2.5?) There's no way I can review this book without sounding like an asshole but I'll try.
You're following the story of a woman who's in an abusing relationship. Classic bait and switch. As soon as she gets married to him, she realizes he's a monster. However, even if the audiobook narrator did a great job, I just had troubling caring much about her or feeling like she didn't have opportunities to get out of there...
Wasn't for me. Wouldn't recommend.
Jack and Grace Angel seem like the perfect couple. They give the best receptions, but this marital bliss is only skin deep. They are less beauty and the beast and more like Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd. I'm merely kidding...I think so, at least.
Grace is unhappy in her life, which is hell. Her sister has Down's Syndrome, and comes to live with the couple. Things start to happen. I thought the writing was slick and I wanted to read - and did read - it as fast as I could. Jack was a character executed ...more

women's health calls this book "2016's ANSWER TO GONE GIRL"
dear women's health - please leave the readers' advisory work to trained professionals and stick to telling us how much water we should be drinking. for our vaginas.
this is nothing like Gone Girl. it's nothing like The Girl on the Train. i'm not even sure this can be classified as psychological suspense, really. this is a straight-up thril ...more
Behind Closed Doors will capture your mind and keep your heart prisoner until the very last page!
I finished Behind Closed Doors about half an hour ago, and my heart still feels like it’s racing, probably not helped by me forgetting to breathe throughout the majority of the book. I found myself wishing I could read faster, just so I had a chance to catch my breath. Make sure you read this with a glass of wine or a box of chocolates, as they may save your life by distracting you from the story lon ...more
