Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris (Book Review #124)

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

(Finished Reading: 24/07/17

My 17th book this year)

Grace and Jack, the perfect couple, a picture of wealth, intelligence, wit and many talents. Along comes the friends who are envious of their blissful romance and devotion to one another. Hosting dinner parties, home catered by the wonderful Grace, going on amazing holidays abroad. Is there really such thing as such perfection in any relationship? 

There’s a whole other story once the doors are closed and the rest of the world can no longer see. Grace’s life isn’t so picture perfect after all…
***SPOILER ALERT***

I found this book gripped me from about midway. I stayed up until 2.30am just to find out how it ends. The ending felt justified and acceptable and somehow made the story great. 

I would definitely recommend this book to others. Different scenes from the story kept popping into my mind and I felt some of Grace’s anxiety, fear and despair. 

It’s best not to read much into the reviews for this one and just dive right in to the book. It is so much more thrilling to have absolutely no idea what to expect. I love Jack’s intuitive mind and absolute mad obsession and enjoyment of fear. 

It’s strange how much a person can cope with in order to protect a loved one. Poor Grace, it was thrilling at every turn and every attempt at escape.

Behind Closed Doors by Susan Lewis (Book Review #116)

I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars.

(Finished Reading: 29/04/17

My 9th book this year)

Sophie Monroe has reached her troublesome years of being a teenager. Arguing with her step mother, exploring her flirting abilities, meeting new people and letting her heart fall possibly for the wrong man.

After yet another argument everyone believes she has run away, but then her disappearance and lack of communication brings many concerns for her parents and the whole community.

As discoveries are made, the possibilities open up. Now people are unsure if Sophie has been taken and no one knows if she will ever return.
***SPOILER ALERT***

How did I manage to pick this one up? I was actually meaning to read “Behind Closed Doors” by a different author and only realised the plot was totally different to the blurb after getting 10% into the book. 

About 75% of the book was captivating, interesting and suspense building. The ending completely threw me but unfortunately I absolutely hated it. 

I believed what the author wanted us to believe for most of the story. But then without warning, without hints, there is a whole new spin then a rush to finish the book. 

The agent responsible for leading the case has to relive the past as the same story seems to pan out right before her eyes with Sophie being missing and the agent’s sister is still missing since many years ago. 

I wouldn’t recommend this book but I would definitely be annoying and tell people the ending is totally wrong and doesn’t fit with the rest of the plot. It was like picking up a whole new book and readingthe end from that.
