I love to read. So does my husband and we have passed this love of reading down to our children. My kids are always on top of their classes in school in regards to their reading.

I love a good book. I usually surround myself with tea and chocolate and just hang out enjoying the atmosphere and my book. Psyche! That was then. These days I'm just cramming my love for reading during waiting in the car riders line, or at one of the kids activities! Rarely do I get to really sit and enjoy my book. Maybe just before they wake up or after they go to bed :)

Really, we read anywhere.

As a matter a fact, my readers are not only doing the Library Summer Reading Program, but also The 100 Book Club this year! I"m so excited for them! Well it ends in December and my daughter is alreay done!!!!  We do not play with books!

About Behind Closed Doors By B.A. Paris

“Is it the perfect marriage or the perfect lie? That’s what you’ll be flipping the pages to find out while reading the new gripping psychological thriller Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris (Love her name). As the #1 book in the UK with movie rights sold, it’s sure to be one of this summer’s hottest reads and will have you glued to its pages to find out what’s next. ”


What I say about the book:

It will be fascinating to watch this movie, but I'm so glad that I get to read the book before. The book is always better than the movie right?

This book had me captivated, not only being on a deadline, but also wanting to find out exactly how it ends!!

This book is relatable because just as life is unpredictable, so are the lives of the characters in the book, and unlike the movie when it's show, with the book, you have to turn the page to know more!

You will hear the saying; 'the grass is greener on the other side'
We all know that's not ever true in most cases. And it's the same with Behind Closed Doors, you can't always know for certain what goes on.

The author does a great job of putting forth Grace and Jack's relationships, their family life and interesting subjects that some authors rarely delve into.  As a thriller, the book does keep your heart teetering, hanging on each word and wanting to know more and soon!

They seem to be the perfect couple with all the trimmings; wealth, good looks and a niche in society. But, looks can be deceiving. Jack and Grace had an exciting romance after they met. Jack is the man you want to desire, he is a lawyer who defends women in domestic abusive situations, and has a record of always being a winner.
They have my dream house and Grace hosts the best dinner parties, along with Jack.

The moment I begin reading, I knew something was off between Jack and Grace. As you read deeper into the story you will learn that Grace who was once an independent woman, has become completely dependent on Jack and that she has put her marriage above all else, including her well-being.

This well-written story shares Grace's story by shifting through snapshots of her past and present. It does this throughout the book so the reader can understand why, however it doesn't feel like the story is interrupted. You can focus on moving forward through the story, instead of getting distracted by wondering why this or that was happening.

Grace also have a sister, Millie, who is 17 years old, struggles with Down Syndrome and Grace has fought to be her guardian, so she wouldn't be institutionalized.
It was quite shocking to see the choice Grace made, between her relationships. However, I can see why an abused woman would do such a thing.

A story that begins with all the great things of romance novels and ends in horror!

I haven't read a thriller in awhile, so this was great to try to figure out what the ending would be!
I want you to read this story. I don't want to give it all away, but this is one to add to the book club for some serious discussion!

Behind Closed Doors: The most emotional and intriguing psychological suspense thriller you can't put down by [Paris, B. A.]

As perfect couples and lives go, how will this marriage turn out? 
Is Jack all the man he shows to the world? 
How will having a special needs family member help or hurt this relationship? 
Grab the book and enjoy this novel!

The book will definitely hook you, but parts of the ending make the chambers of your mind keep twisting.

The author did a great job!
