Book Review / Behind Closed Doors by B A Paris

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.

This book made me so angry, but that's ok.  Its meant to!

We follow Jack and Grace, a recently married couple who are settling into their dream home.  Grace's sister, who has Down's Syndrome, is going to be joining them soon after leaving her residential school unit as she is old enough to move out.   What seems like a normal couple living a normal life may not be the case.

Words cannot describe how much this made me angry for reasons that I can't tell you because of spoilers but let's say that this is a book that deals with the relationships between married couples, when they work and when they don't work in awful fashion.  And that ending!  I won't say too much more as it is really best if you go into this novel as blind as you possibly can but this book was a page turner from start to finish and I definitely wasn't left disappointed.
