Title: Behind Closed Doors
Author: B.A. Paris
Synopsis (from Amazon.com):
Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.
But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable.
Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows.
Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.
My thoughts: Oh my goodness . . . this book was amazing! I literally couldn’t put it down and finished it in a couple of hours. This book was an incredibly fast read due to an amazing plot line . . . but I have to say the descriptions of emotional abuse in this book are incredibly disturbing – like disturbing to the point of feeling uncomfortable.
Its a bizarre mix of Stepford Wives meets Fatal Attraction. At times the book was so disturbing I wondered if should stop reading . . but it just drew me in.
The end was good . . . but without giving too much away .. . I wish it would have been even more satisfying.
Do yourself a favor and get yourself a copy of this book . . . definitely worth the read.
