Thank you. Your review has been submitted and will appear here shortly. Extra Content. Paris''s thriller asks the question: ''The perfect marriage or the perfect lie? Each chapter escalates the tensions and stakes faced by Grace in the nightmare that is her new ''perfect'' marriage to Jack. This was one of the best and [most] terrifying psychological thrillers I have ever read. The desperation, the feeling that no one will believe you and yet still wanting to fight because someone you care deeply about will get hurt.
Behind Closed Doors, a novel sure to make one''s skin crawl, also reveals no one truly knows what does go on behind closed doors. And really good. Until the end, which was an honest gasp and imaginary pearl clutching moment. Yes, that good. Reader, if you want to read the thriller that enthralled even this jaded soul, pick up Behind Closed Doors by BA Paris..
Then draw the blinds and turn off your phone because you will not want any interruptions. This is one readers won''t be able to put down. In the same vein as Gone Girl or Girl on the Train, this is a can''t-put-down psychological thriller. Grace''s terror is contagious, and Millie''s impending peril creates a ticking clock that propels this claustrophobic cat-and-mouse tale toward its grisly, gratifying conclusion. Read at the risk of running from every handsome British lawyer who crosses your path. Disturbing, to say the least, readers will definitely be shaken as the story commences and they become immediately absorbed.
The writing was incredible, and the pace is quick, offering up too many chills to count Behind Closed Doors screams: ''Stay single! Paris''s debut, Behind Closed Doors, is a chilling confirmation of the adage that no one ever really knows what transpires in other people''s private lives.. Paris has created one of the most heinous villains in recent memory, upon whom even the most pacifist of readers might wish torturous revenge. They''ll likely remain behind their own closed doors as they race through this thriller to see how, or if, the nightmare ends.
Responsible for a string of heinous killings decades ago, Lillian is pure evil. A psychopathic murderer. Now, she is ready to reveal the location of three of her victims - but only if Amy plays along with her twisted game. When Angela met Jason Powell while catering a dinner party in East Hampton, she assumed their romance would be a short-lived fling, like so many relationships between locals and summer visitors. To her surprise, Jason, a brilliant economics professor at NYU, had other plans, and they married the following summer.
For Angela, the marriage turned out to be a chance to reboot her life. She and her son were finally able to move out of her mother's home to Manhattan, where no one knew about her tragic past.
Erin is a documentary filmmaker on the brink of a professional breakthrough, Mark a handsome investment banker with big plans. Passionately in love, they embark on a dream honeymoon to the tropical island of Bora Bora, where they enjoy the sun, the sand, and each other. Then, while scuba diving in the crystal blue sea, they find something in the water More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia's teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace.
The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that's cruelly ripped open when Claire's husband is killed. Our love story is simple. I met a gorgeous woman. We fell in love. We had kids. We moved to the suburbs.

We told each other our biggest dreams and our darkest secrets. And then we got bored. We look like a normal couple. We're your neighbors, the parents of your kid's friend, the acquaintances with whom you keep meaning to get dinner. We all have our secrets to keeping a marriage alive.
Ours just happens to be getting away with murder. Memphis, But when their father must rush their mother to the hospital one stormy night, Rill is left in charge - until strangers arrive in force. A chilling thriller that will keep you reading long into the night.
Warning: brace yourself. 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. 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. From bestselling author B. Paris comes the gripping thriller and international phenomenon Behind Closed Doors. I highly recommend this book for fans of psychological thrillers. I would warn that it is a frightening story, and while not frankly violent, there is some upsetting content regarding abuse.
I'd also suggest that the listener needs to be patient for the story to get off the ground. In my opinion, the author spent far too much time laying groundwork when the issues are pretty obvious for anyone with the least bit of skeptical disbelief of 'perfect' appearing existences. This book straddles the horror genre as well- I've just finished and find myself with an ongoing sense of dread and fear that built as I listened.
For anyone who says that this 'could not happen'- think again. But this book definitely deserves recognition! I could not stop listening!!! It was intense, nail biting The details were so well written that I actually felt like I was living in the moment of the story. I could not stop listening. At first I thought ok, this will be just a regular suspense story But within 2 hours into it, I was hooked!
As the story unfolded in opening chapters, one wondered when the darkness would enter the story. When it inevitably did, this turned out to be a very different story than Big Little Lies. Reviewers who are incredulous at the premise have every reason to be, but I suspect the psychological torture in the story is present in modern society in human stories that are just as incredible. The author cleverly and elegantly closed off all the options for Grace and Millie's escape, doing so as effectively as one could to scaffold the story.
Still, once the darkness entered the story I could not go on much more than minutes before throwing in the towel. It was too dark and uncomfortable and I figured I would just return the credit. Yet, reviews promised a great ending, and I considered the ending in Big Little Lies to be perhaps the most multilayered and well-structured ending to a novel I could imagine reading.
Could this also have a great ending? So I decided I could try to skip the middle four hours of the story, and pickup with something like an hour forty left in the story. It worked for me. I just can't listen to that much darkness and I assumed that is all it would be, replete with creative ways to make Grace's situation seem even more hopeless. In the expectation that perhaps the ending would be great, and that I knew enough of the storyline to pickup the last fifth or sixth of the story, I decided at least to give it a try. Paris from NetGalley for an honest review.
My thanks to NetGalley, St. Martin's Press, and to B. Paris for the opportunity. Flip the switch. Move over Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman. This one is lit up and burning bright. Jack and Grace Angel appear to be in love and so taken with one another. A dinner party showcases Grace's extraordinary culinary fete and highlights Jack's lavish attention upon his wife and their guests. Their posh home reflects the best in art and in decor. This lovely scene is swirling with the honeymoon affect. But if you and I lean in a bit closer We step back to try and clear the air of the noxious fumes, but we and our senses are held hostage by the toxicity of what lies beneath this panoramic view.
All is certainly not what it seems here. And what lies beneath the surface will have you gasping for, perhaps, a last breath. Paris invites you into this little abode. Her characters are well-defined and the storyline has a heartbeat of its own. Are there some loose threads along the seams of this story? Most certainly. I did question some of the scenarios that were presented. But what energizes this story is the uncanny desperation that you feel for not being able to look away. You are as driven as the main characters. You must know. This is a debut novel for B. There are all indications of a remarkable talent in the making.
Paris knows how to draw the cincture tighter and tighter. And that makes all the difference in keeping the story afloat and awaiting the next wave of attention. Looking forward to B. Paris' next offering. View all 82 comments. I have voted in 2 categories for this book in the Goodreads awards and with good reason! You know that couple that looks SO perfect for each other?
The ones that click together in every way when you see them and you feel a jealous twang that you don't have the same thing? Sometimes what you see on the outside can be very deceptive, never ever judge a book by it's cover, always read the fine print in the middle.
Behind Closed Doors is a chilling and atmospheric psychological thriller that I pr I have voted in 2 categories for this book in the Goodreads awards and with good reason! Behind Closed Doors is a chilling and atmospheric psychological thriller that I predict will be one of the BIG reads of I have read a few books recently about marriages that are not all they same and when this theme is done well as this book does it's absolutely breathtaking and scary.
Disturbed is what you will feel with much of this book, don't be surprised if your mouth pops open watch out for fruit flies at that point. Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. I had mixed feelings about Grace as a character but was very clear on my feelings for Jack - I did not like him, I hated him.
Full stop. As for Grace? Well I felt much for her ranging from pity and empathy to annoyance and rage. I wanted to yell at Grace many, many times and jump in the book and give her a good shaking. The plot interested me from the start, I read the book in one glued-eye sitting until the early hours and was glad that I did, this my reader friends is one of those real escapism books. Love them. Taut, terrific and terrifyingly real at times. I have no doubt these marriages do exist.
Think on that. Loved, loved and loved Behind Closed Doors and am intrigued to read more from B. I double dare you. Many thanks to Harlequin UK for my copy of this book in exchange for a professional book review. All opinions are my own. View all 20 comments.

Holy moly what a ride!! Dry eye made the words blurry, but who cares? And food? Is that really necessary? My only necessity was finding out how this story turned out, to get me out of the claustrophobic terror created by a holy-shit psychopath. It was some tense! This guy Jack is one sick psycho.
Will he win in the end? I went back and forth many times, believe me. I'm super impressed that this new writer could come up with such far-out displays of evil and ingenious push-backs. The writing is excellent—it flows seamlessly and there are no fillers. And the story is told by the woman, Grace.
The pace never lets up. Okay, actually it did get a tiny bit slow in the middle, but it could have just been my discomfort super nail-biting unchiness that made me want it to go faster so I could see what happened. The beginning and ending were just scrumptious. But had Grace been able to expose Jack then, what a boring fizzle-out it would have been!
Also, Millie seemed a little too clever for someone with a low IQ—could she have successfully hidden pills, and would she have been able to cook up such a scheme? And in the end, I really wanted to actually see Grace get her revenge: I wanted to see Jack suffer, to watch her make him suffer, to see his reaction. But then again, it was so clever and effective the way the author had Grace happily heading off to the airport by herself, and it kept me incredibly tense and curious about what had happened and whether she truly would be free.
A good psychopath can take your mind off of anything. This was just what the doctor ordered. Thanks to NetGalley for the advance copy. View all 48 comments.

Lead character, Grace, must be THE most gullible woman ever to walk the planet, and characterless Jack is about as evil as Mr Bean and dull as ditchwater!
I ask you, who could possibly be duped by such a dullard? To make things worse could they be any worse? So, what do I know? There seems to be a great deal of new releases on the best sellers lists for psychological-thriller style novels about relationships between married couples and they all seem to be readable but quite mediocre and this was among one of three that I downloaded that has fantastic reviews but failed to deliver a satisfying and credible ending.

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace, successful, newly married, devoted to each other but is their relationship and life as rosy as it appears on the outside? I fell for the premise of the story as the characters are well drawn and the plot well executed to begin with but about half ways through the story I was finding myself having to suspend belief at some of the actions of the characters and plot line weakened and became repetitive. I read this on Kindle and thought I was missing pages as the book seemed to end so abruptly.
An entertaining beginning but a disappointing conclusion and a novel that lacked any real depth. View all 26 comments. For about the first pages, I was all in. Sitting on the edge of my seat, excited to see how things were going to unfold with Grace and Jack. By all appearances they had the perfect marriage, but we all know looks can be deceiving.
It was definitely an interesting, but eerie scenario. While I thought there were a few opportunities that presented themselves, I could understand her trepidation and the need to protect her younger sister. Millie turned out to be one of my favorite things about the story. Was it just me or did she have way more guts than Grace? It was somewhere around the halfway mark that my feelings started to change. The story became stagnant and took on a bit of a repetitive feel. I kept waiting for something big to happen. Something to breathe some life back into this story.
It was a lot of talk, but not much action. I felt like we were only given a small glimpse of his dark side. I will say, the author delivered with the ending. While slightly unbelievable, I would expect more of an investigation obviously, it made me like the story that much more. It was kind of clever the way Grace pulled it off. The fact that someone else knew what really happened, and how she figured it out, was an added bonus. Martin's Press and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. View all 30 comments. Enjoyable, even though the psychological pathology and methodology really don't make any sense.
But it's written in a way that keeps the pages turning, even if the plotting and details are a bit loose and the characterization not hugely complex. I'm a little surprised to see this described as "terrifying" and other such adjectives, though. Maybe I've been too hardened by other thrillers and life to find it that exciting. But I liked the book overall, especially the note on which it ended. View all 12 comments. There's no way I can review this book without sounding like an asshole but I'll try. You're following the story of a woman who's in an abusing relationship.
Classic bait and switch. As soon as she gets married to him, she realizes he's a monster. However, even if the audiobook narrator did a great job, I just had troubling caring much about her or feeling like she didn't have opportunities to get out of there Wasn't for me.
Wouldn't recommend. View all 4 comments. Jack is a successful lawyer, Grace an ex-buyer for the upmarket Harrods store, in London. It transpires that Jack and Grace have been married just one year and that Grace gave up her job a job she admits she loved so that she could be home more often to support her husband.
Then we learn that Grace has a sister, Millie, who suffers from Downs syndrome. Millie will soon come to live with her sister and her husband. These revelations hit slightly off-key notes in what otherwise appears to be a perfect set-up. It didn't feel as though any real surprises were uncovered; it was pretty much what anyone would have expected from the introduction provided.
I got this book on a daily deal from Audible. When I saw it was going further in the wrong direction I pulled the plug. Only one star from me — my standard offering for any book I fail to finish.

Let's just say that you wouldn't want to be married to him - no way.
This is a chilling, claustrophobic, psychological thriller, that has had a huge emotional impact on me - and credit to B. Paris for managing to achieve that. If you get the chance to read this book, then do so, but just be thankful, that when you've finished, and you put it down, you can put Jack to one side forever. Deep breaths now Maureen.

Some of them people close on themselves, others on people closest to them and on other pepople in general. The most scary part is that I know for a fact that many people's lives either use or are used in some or other variation of such techniques'.
Another dangerous idea implicitly described here is that people tend to be inflexible in their worldview. Just ask someone homeless how 'easy' it is to upgrade back to home life. Ask someone getting better af This world has many sorts of closed doors. Ask someone getting better after a potentially life-changing illness how people will perceive them in terms of strength and capabilities. Most of us become adherents of how we have seen the world before.
We rarely question our formed perceptions or ask ourselves if we had been wrong or if something has changed along the way. If we see a woman with a 'prolonged history of maniacal depression' we might be not ready to accept her claims of violent treatment, especially when there are no outward signs of just that. There are things in this world that you can literally shout from rooftops about and no one would believe you.
People tend to remember the worst and to expect the best so when you inform them of the worst happening they are not generally inclined to be entirely rational about that. This is probably why the whole situation from this novel is borderline both monstrous and trivial. This is chilling. Chilling pretty much to the bones. Still fakey a bit. Somehow, I'm not sure this is realistic enough. The cause for such impression is that it's just another general tendency of people to underestimate the pain of mental suffering in comparison to physical.
Overall it's a nerve-tickling cautionary tale. Q: Once outside, I help myself to fruit and pancakes and find a table in the corner, wondering if anyone else in the world has been as fooled by a man as I was.

Reassured, I fill the bath, strip off my clothes and lower myself tentatively into the hot water. Nov 05, Mandy rated it really liked it. This book, seriously I was emotionally gripped from page one. I think I could have read it in one sitting but unfortunately, life got in the way of that. It was quite hard to put this book down.
I thoroughly enjoyed the back and forth of the way the story went. The author set this story up perfectly and I felt as if I could see it playing out in my mind.
Behind Closed Doors
It was emotionally gripping and I felt like I could have been psychologically examined after I read it I was so messed up from it. She was a hoot and added so much color into the novel that could have otherwise been dull. There were some parts of the story that were beige and I felt as if I had read it before and wanted to push fast forward through it but other than that I enjoyed the book immensely.
This author did a fantastic job writing this novel, I was gripped from beginning to the end and had to know what happened. Wonderfully thrilling and emotionally gripping from page one. Kudos to this author and I am quite excited to see what else she has in store for readers. I will be getting her next novel View all 37 comments. This guy is SICK! Makes me wonder what B.

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 3. The sheer terror of being held at the mercy of a sadistic madman.
A madman that just happens to be your husband. Of course, no one believes you…no one will listen. Will you claw your way out of this nightmare before it's too late? Each of these chapters ending in a mini cliffhanger that leaves you determined to read more! For the first half of the book anyway. Reading this book left me with a queasy feeling in my stomach.
Certain parts were hard to read. Super creepy and disturbing. As it progressed it was almost too over the top for me. Then, sadly it just fell flat. Became repetitive. I was hopeful that it would pick up again as the end approached, but no. Actually, I couldn't believe it ended where it did! I just felt there was so much more that could have been developed. Overall I found it just a little disappointing. View all 41 comments. OMG I have read some fantastic books so far this year. This year I have a feeling is going to be awesome. I finished last year on a high and this year has started on a high for just awesomeness in book material.
Surely you have experienced it.
