Behind Closed Doors Reviews
Slam! Yes, because as the saying goes, what one always sees isn't what necessarily goes on behind closed doors. In the case of newlyweds - -18 months new- jack and grace, the epitome of perfection in every way, there seems to be a...catch. As Grace is never without Jack. The irony is he's a high powered lawyer who defends abused women. Yet there are locks and metal shutters on their windows. Grace never leaves without him. Is it paranoia? Or could he himself be the monster he defends?

Enjoyable, even though the psychological pathology and methodology really don't make any sense. But it's written in a way that keeps the pages turning, even if the plotting and details are a bit loose and the characterization not hugely complex.
I'm a little surprised to see this described as "terrifying" and other such adjectives, though. Maybe I've been too hardened by other thrillers and life to find it that exciting. But I liked the book overall, especially the note on which it ended.

Whew! This was certainly one creepy and screwed up story. I expected it to be really messed up, but not in quite the way that it was. A pervasive sense of uneasiness stayed with me the entire time that I was reading this book. Creepy...Very creepy.
The book opens with a dinner party at Jack and Grace's home. Jack is a successful attorney, well-known for advocating for battered women. Grace is the soft-spoken, elegant wife. Everything about th ...more

She feels like her ship has finally come in. Could she actually have everything she ever wanted? Well, according to their friends they live the perfect life - but behind those closed doors…. (Oh, darn those closed doors!)
Absolutely frightening! The sheer terror of being held at the mercy of a sadistic madma ...more
I've been dying to read this book every since I first saw the blurb about it. I knew it wasn't going to be pretty and I have an un-holy attraction to books about psychos.
I don't want to give up too much of the book because the biggest draw for it is the twisty parts of it.
Grace has not had too much luck with men.
She has a younger sister Millie who has Down's syndrome, and most men kind of back off once they realize that Grace is Millie's primary caregiver and that she isn't going to change t ...more
HOLY MACARONI! 4.5 stars! This book, seriously... I was emotionally gripped from page one. I think I could have read it in one sitting but unfortunately, life got in the way of that. It was quite hard to put this book down. I thoroughly enjoyed the back and forth of the way the story went. The author set this story up perfectly and I felt as if I could see it playing out in my mind. THIS SO NEEDS TO BE A MOVIE! It was emotionally gripping and I felt like I could have been psychologically examine ...more
I have voted in 2 categories for this book in the 2016 Goodreads awards and with good reason!
You know that couple that looks SO perfect for each other?
The ones that click together in every way when you see them and you feel a jealous twang that you don't have the same thing? Sometimes what you see on the outside can be very deceptive, never ever judge a book by it's cover, always read the fine print in the middle.
Behind Closed Doors is a chilling and atmospheric psychological thriller that I pr ...more
I have read some fantastic books so far this year. This year I have a feeling is going to be awesome. I finished last year on a high and this year has started on a high for just awesomeness in book material.
Jack & Grace
They seem the most perfect of couples. Surely you have experienced it. The typically "forever happy, never row, never have a cross word, smiley at each other, gooey eyed seemingly perfect couple".
Do you get envious?
Or do you think "hmm yeah yeah"
I am sure there are ...more
