Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.

But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable.

Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows.

Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.

From bestselling author B. A. Paris comes the gripping thriller and international phenomenon Behind Closed Doors.

Behind Closed Doors1 star

Completely unbelievable. So extreme and unrealistic. Story line has potential to great and relatable to people who have encountered this kind of domestic abuse but it’s just so extreme it’s ridiculous. 15


Boring1 star

Predictable story that couldn’t keep my attention. It put my to sleep. I would not recommend this book. 15


Amazing!!5 star

Highly recommend. Easy quick read! 55


Behind Closed Doors3 star

It was an interesting concept about a man who seems perfect, only to get what he wants and then ruins his wife’s life. It wasn’t a one- sitting type of read, but I wanted to finish it to see how it ended and if she ever escaped him. I would have liked for the ending to have been more detailed and have more “oomph” but it did the job. 35


Awful, terrible. I want my money back!1 star

How anyone can say that this book was a thriller “can’t put it down” is mind boggling. It was a boring book with snobbish, self center characters. 15

This novel is right up there with all of the best I have read. An amazing and somewhat sorry full store of an abusive and somewhat disturbed husband who weds an opposite caring and trusting woman who has no idea of the terrifying journey her marriage will take her on. 55



Just purchased this book, because it was rated very well and under $4 to buy! this kept me turning page after page every day and the style it’s written back and forth really kept me going! loved this book and even the recommendation of other books by the author herself! 55

Low expectations5 star

I really did have low expectations of the book and it’s hard to get me to really read a book all in one sitting and this one did that! While reading I was able to predict what was happening but I think that’s what the author intended you to think because as I got deeper I was more surprised and then ending was great. 10/10 recommend 55


Men hold women captive1 star

Done a thousand times 3 characters, didn't even finish the book. String of losers lately 15


Amazing5 star

I loved the set up of this book- switching between past & present perspectives. The entire story line was amazing in fact. A great thriller, and it really keeps you on your toes. 55


Disappointing...3 star

Most definitely a book you can't put down and a very fast read but it feels like the author had to end the book with so many pages and ended it abruptly without the full ending. The book was engrossing but somewhat predictable in the storyline. 35


Implausible2 star

Couldn't really hold my attention because the premise seemed implausible. Writing style is not bad, and others may like it... 25

Good read 45


Good.4 star

Although I felt the book was predictable I still really enjoyed the read. I wish it would have been a little more complex and let us know more about Jack. I would have liked to read jacks point of view as a child to show how he became this monster. 45


Behind Closed Doors5 star

I randomly stumbled upon this book and I was pleasantly surprised! Fast paced with unexpected twists and turns. What more could you want? I finished this book in two days. I couldn't put it down. I'll definitely be reading more of this author's work. Highly recommend for anyone who enjoys this genre. 55


Behind Closed Doors5 star

Excellent read. Read it in one weekend. A different thriller than what has been out there lately. The author did a great job of pulling you into the main character's hell on earth. 55
