Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace: he has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. 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.
Picture this: a dinner party at their perfect home, the conversation and wine flowing. They appear to be in their element while entertaining. And Grace’s friends are eager to reciprocate with lunch the following week. Grace wants to go, but knows she never will. Her friend’s call – so why doesn’t Grace ever answer the phone? And how can she cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim?
And why are their bars on one of the bedroom windows?
Oh my! I hadn’t paid too much attention to this book, despite having it on my kindle, but as soon as I read the blurb I knew it was going to be the next read.
I am not going to reveal any more plot details as the blurb plus the title give all the clues you need to know what this book is about. That said, this book was not what I expected and at times this made uncomfortable reading.
Extremely well written in an original and very simple format, told from the perspective of Grace in alternating chapters, from the Past and the Present day. Reaching a satisfying conclusion when Past meets Present.
Very much a character driven novel, this book is all about what goes on behind closed doors in the home life of Grace and Jack. Aspects of the story shock and B A Paris has created a truly sadistic persona in this book. As stated previously at times shocking, but definitely a gripping psychological thriller, written in an engaging way which makes this book difficult to put down.
