Behind Closed Doors: A Book Review. B.A. Paris’ New York Times and USA Today bestselling debut novel is a masterpiece in its own right. Fast-paced, with two parallel timelines; this psychological thriller is unlike anything else in its genre.
Jack and Grace have it all; the looks, the wealth, the home, and the unwavering love; one that make them literally inseparable. They are the epitome of perfection; a perfection that is perhaps too good to be true. Added to the equation is the fact that Grace’s sister, who has Down’s syndrome, is planned to live with them in the near future. Jack is so welcoming this change, perhaps too welcoming. He claims that with the arrival of Grace’s sister, their picture-perfect small family will become complete. But something is quite not right.
As the events unfold, the readers start to peel the layers of this false perfection. This addictive, page-turner novel is so well-written, down to the chilling final conversation, which in itself a piece of literary genius.
Behind Closed Doors is a story of how a dream can turn into a living nightmare. But most importantly, it is a story of human resilience, perseverance, and survival against odds.
Strongly recommended for anyone who’s looking for a good book to read.
