The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie?
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 realise 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.
Behind Closed Doors is certainly an edge of your seat read. When I started it I really did not want to put it down, if it hadn’t have been for having to get up early the following day I would have happily stayed up all night to finish it.
To start with I couldn’t see where the issue lay. You have two main characters, Jack and Grace, who to be fair are pretty much perfect and have the most perfect relationship. So was dying to know who was the bad one behind closed doors.
The story actually flicks between past and present day so that the reader can see how things are in the present and the build up from the past to where things are now.
It takes a while for the true evilness of Jack to surface and I hated how he could easily fool everyone round him into making them think he is such the perfect gentleman. Through Grace we only know to well that Jack is anything but though and I could very much feel the frustration of Grace’s predicament.
Behind Close Doors is certainly gripping stuff and one that fans of psychological thrillers are going to lap up. My only issue is that the ending was a bit of an anti climax as the whole story felt like it was building up to a really dramatic ending and for me personally it was all a bit to neat and tidy for my liking. This is only my opinion of course but otherwise than that I absolutely loved it and will certainly be reading more books in the future by this author.
Goodreads rating 4/5.
Behind Closed Doors is due to be published on the 11th of February, you can pre order a copy on Amazon.
