Behind Closed Doors - Review

 Idgie Says:
There's not a lot I can say about this book without giving anything away. I can just mention that by page two you know something's "off". A couple of chapters in you realize how very "off". 

I will say that if a man is too perfect..........look a lot harder. 

There is a lot of chatter already surrounding this book by the reviewing world and it's well deserved. The twists and turns and secrets divulged will keep your mouth hanging open through large chunks of the novel.

An edge of your seat story that keeps you invested the entire way through. 


Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris (August 9th; St. Martin’s Press)
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 realize 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.  A runaway #1 bestseller in the UK, with over 220,000 copies sold in its first two weeks of publication, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS is about the “perfect marriage” that just might be a terrifying nightmare beneath the surface.

B. A. Paris grew up in England but has spent most of her adult life in France. She has worked both in finance and as a teacher and has five daughters. Behind Closed Doors is her first novel.
