Review: Behind Closed Doors

Sarah Winters

Grace and Jack are the picture of perfection. They both have the looks, Jack has the money, and Grace has the class. They have a gorgeous house, they never fight, and they’re madly in love. To the outside world they have a perfect life, but how perfect is it when Jack closes the doors. Behind Closed Doors, by B.A. Paris, is a psychological thriller sure to keep you up at night.

Jack Angel is a lawyer that defends abused women, he has never lost a case and accepts nothing less than perfection. When he first meets Grace, she’s a smart independent women who takes care of her younger sister Millie who has autism. Grace is getting older, and fears she will never have her own family. So when gorgeous Jack come along and dances with Millie, Grace falls immediately. They have a short 6 month relationship before Jack proposes, and an even shorter engagement before they elope. None of this makes Grace suspicious, but why would she be. He has never done anything to make her doubt his love. However, sometimes things can be a little to perfect. The day of their wedding is what starts the mysterious events in Grace’s life. Millie falls down the stairs, Jack gets held up with work, Grace can’t reach her parents, and Grace gets sick. Or so Jack says. Jack has a way with words, and can make anyone believe him. That’s why it’s so easy for him to make Grace his puppet.

This is not a book for the weak of heart. Behind Closed Doors really made me scared for Grace, and I am not easily scared. I would find myself reading late into the night, because I had to know what was going to happen next. B.A. Paris was very good at playing with readers emotions, and making them doubt what they knew. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a mysterious page turner.
