Behind Closed Doors
Behind Closed Doors | 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. 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.

Woah. I couldn‘t put this one down because I just had to know how it was going to end. A little predictable at times and I wish the ending would have been a little more satisfying, but overall, it was a good, fast-paced read. I did like that the chapters flipped back and forth between present and past and by the end what was originally the present became the past.

This book was an emotional roller coaster and I honestly loved every minute of this. TW for domestic violence. This book gets very extreme which is important but also very upsetting.

I liked it, but didn't love it. For me the middle dragged a bit and I wasn't in a hurry to finish. There wasn't really that sense of 'I need to know what happens next'. What was done really well however, was creating a scenario that made me uncomfortable. There are many variations of this situation that could realistically occur. Overall a 3 star read for me.

This has to be one of the most chilling books I've ever read. It takes the cake on physiological thrillers. I have never read a book where hours, days, weeks, even months later, where just thinking about a character would sends chills down my spine. This book is my favorite read of 2017. #mysteriousbookworm #psychologicalthriller #behindcloseddoors #baparis #relationships #spinechilling #terrifying #bestreadsof2017

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3 Stars

I went into this hearing it was one of the scariest books people have ever read, so I think the hype had set me up to be a bit disappointed. I didn‘t find anything scary (does that say something about me? Lol).

I did enjoy it, but it could‘ve been so much better.

suzie.reads I didn't think it was scary more disturbing. All her books follow the same creepy trend. 4mo
baes @suzie.reads Disturbing, sure. I have a friend that said she had to keep stopping because it freaked her out, and I didn‘t have the same experience. I was hoping for that nervous suspense you get with thrillers. Lol 4mo
suzie.reads I didn't get that I just found it creepy. I've read three of her books and although I enjoy them I worry for the woman's state of mind 😂 4mo
baes @suzie.reads 😂😂😂 Yes. I was actually thinking that while reading it, so in that regard I was a bit questioning. Lol Like, who thinks of this stuff? 🙈 4mo

I've heard mixed reviews on this one. I tend to go towards psychological thrillers though so had to give this book a chance. I really enjoyed the book. The main character was a little repetitive but I think it was just to extend the seriousness of what was going on. Makes you wonder about what other people are going through when no one is watching.

A textbook nightmare. The fear of losing your free will (that‘s as far as this scenario goes- I think the author was either to afraid or too unimaginative to take it anywhere truly dark), is all this book is. Neither the characters, the story, nor the writing is strong enough to engage a reader in any other way. Though i do not share this feat, I did, nevertheless, finish this book, which says something. A relatively entertaining vacation read.

Overall a good psychological thriller. The MC was a bit of a dum dum from the beginning, but you quickly forget about that as you root for her to survive.

RebL I can't say it's “great literature“ (whatever that means), but this is one of the few books I stayed up all night reading as an adult. No regrets. I loved the experience. 6mo
Jilly6183 @crazeedi I can see that based on her writing style. This is the only one I‘ve read. I‘d give another a try if someone lent it to me or I came across one in the discount section (where I picked up this one), but I didn‘t like this enough to go out my way to read her other work. 6mo

Absolutely brilliant! I tore through this psychological thriller in one day (by the pool 😃) and loved every gripping chapter. Told in my favourite format of chapters alternating between the past and the present, this is a story of mental manipulation and psychological blackmail. A must read for fans of the film Sleeping With The Enemy. I‘ll say no more for fear of spoilers but READ THIS BOOK! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I decided on “pick” because I definitely wanted to know the ending. I‘m glad I finished it BUT, I‘m left wanting to know more. I guess that‘s a good thing! Will there be a sequel?! I think the overall storyline is a little disturbing. Why does Jack feel so strongly about targeting whom he wants to? It‘s not quite explained and it‘s a bit morbid. Wish the last chapter was dedicated to the present life.

Jack and Grace have a questionable relationship. Why does Jack always go where Grace goes? Why does Jack insist on doing everything with his wife? As the story unfolds aspects get extremely uncomfortable (and slightly unrealistic) Grace is made to live an isolated life.
