Behind Closed Doors weaves a unique tale of the dark side of class and privilege. The story of Jack and Grace portrays a marriage between a successful attorney and his wife, who happens to be the perfect homemaker. Told from multiple perspectives, this book is not just one woman’s struggle, but several – as each woman’s life is altered by her married love interest. This story shows how abuse can occur even in relationships that seem picture-perfect.
Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. Everyone except Grace. She’s been keeping a secret from Jack, and it has everything to do with why they are in the house that they are in, who is downstairs in the basement, who is coming tonight for dinner, and what exactly she saw buried outside their bedroom window. But she can’t make that horror stop on her own — even if she does enlist the help of the only other woman on their block who looks down on them, who knows a thing or two about secrets, and who might be looking to take revenge because something sinister is happening inside these walls…with or without Grace.
A New York Times bestselling author delivers a “gripping, twisty drama” (People) that asks: How well do we ever really know the people closest to us? When Grace meets Dan at a local bar, and they kiss in the parking lot, it is nothing more than a one-night stand. But after a chance encounter at a neighborhood park, Dan becomes infatuated with Grace. She avoids his attention for as long as possible, but when he lands a high-powered job working for Grace’s husband, it seems there may be no way out of their intense relationship unscathed.
About Behind Closed Doors Book
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 isn’t easy 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 can she 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 are there such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows?
Some might wonder what happens once the dinner party ends and the front door has closed.
