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.
From bestselling author B. A. Paris comes the gripping thriller and international phenomenon Behind Closed Doors.

I thought this was very compelling from the first chapter. And it is a page turner. However, I felt it was too expensive ($12.99) for the length of the book, which I read in about 4.5 hours. Also as others have mentioned the resolution was too quick and too easy. And I would have liked to see the antagonist a little more complex-he dumps his story all at once instead of revealing a little at a time, which is a shame.
All in all I would put it in the category of "good," but not great.
Awful, terrible. I want my money back!
How anyone can say that this book was a thriller “can’t put it down” is mind boggling. It was a boring book with snobbish, self center characters.
Behind Closed Doors
This novel is right up there with all of the best I have read. An amazing and somewhat sorry full store of an abusive and somewhat disturbed husband who weds an opposite caring and trusting woman who has no idea of the terrifying journey her marriage will take her on.
