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
Behind Closed Doors is terribly frightening.
Especially since it’s not far-fetched. It’s realistic in a scary, can’t-fall-in-love-blindly-anymore and I-need-to-scrutinize-my-boyfriend kind of way.
It’s terrifying because it’s a story that could happen to anyone. Even the most vigilant of human beings can be duped by a genuine smile and gentlemanly gestures.
I stayed up all night to finish this book, which shows how determined I was to see how everything would play out in the end for Grace and ‘‘Jac ...more
I finished this book late last night and I still can't stop thinking about it.
I have been wanting to read Behind Closed Doors for quite some time. When it was available on NetGalley I requested it right away but unfortunately was denied. I think that just made me want it more!
So when I finally got my hands on it I just had to put everything else aside and start reading. And I was pulled in right away.
***Possibly some very minor spoilers***

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
SPOILERS --- SPOILERS ---- SPOILERS ----SPOILER!!!!!
*Diving into the spoiler >>>> "Molly could only have been dead a few days at the most, because her body hadn't started to decompose. Jack had been very clever in that respect; he had left her some water, but not quite enough to last her two weeks until we got home. The shock of finding her dead was terrible. The look of malevolent anticipation on Jack's face as he opened the door to the utility room had prepared me for something - ...more
I know a lot of you guys loved this book, but it turned out to be just meh for me. It had it's moments and kept me up late last night, but I had a hard time suspending disbelief with this one. I don't know why.
I listened to the audio version. The audio is good. It's short and only about 8 hours. The narrator does a good job, but the book translated into a Lifetime Movie via audio for me. It might be better to read a hardcopy of it.
Thank you to Lisa for recommending it to me. :). She loved the bo ...more
Grace has found the man of her dreams. A handsome, wealthy man who adores her. But equally important to Grace, one that will accept her much younger sister Millie who has Down's syndrome. She feels like her ship has finally come in. Could she actually have everything she ever wanted? Well, according to their friends they live the perfect life - but behind those closed doors…. (Oh, darn those closed doors!)
Absolutely frightening! The sheer terror of being held at the mercy of a sadistic madma ...more

Jack and Grace have the perfect marriage, right? Well, scratch the veneer a little, and there's something really evil lurking beneath.
Grace is something of a trophy wife for Jack. And as for Jack, I can't really say HOW I feel about him. No, I really CAN'T say how I feel about him, because it would set me off on a rant, and I'd probably give the whole darn plot away! Let's just say that you wouldn't want to be married to him - no way. This is a chilling, claustrophobic, psychological ...more
