Wow! Behind Closed Doors is a debut thriller by author Sadie Ryan and I must say it is going to be a huge hit for fans of the thriller genre. Ryan took off running right from the first page and when I say this book is full of dread, I really mean it!
Tina Valentine lives the perfect life with her husband and two small children. She has a job she loves and is close to even making partner in the law firm she works in with her husband, Glyn. But Tina is hiding a secret and new secretary for the law firm, Megan Pearson, is about to make Tina’s perfect life fall apart at the seams. Why is Tina the only one who can see through Megan and her manipulative ways and what does it mean for the future of Megan’s perfectly ordered life and family?
So, let’s talk a little bit about the dreadfulness that is just etched into the pages of this fantastic story. I can just feel the urgency right away and although it starts off small, that urgency just builds and builds until you are in a frenzy half hating Megan, wanting to smack Tina’s husband, Glyn and trying to figure out what the hell is going on throughout the course of the story. Who could be trusted and who is just plain bat sh*t crazy kinda drove ME crazy! I do have to say I am glad I was alone reading this book as many times I have gasped, said “what? Whoa, What the hell.” I probably would have gotten plenty of weird stares from people.
I found all of the characters in this story to be well rounded and etched out quite thoroughly. Although some you may want to smack upside the head and scream out “What is wrong with you?!?!” I have had plenty of those moments myself.
The story itself is pretty fast paced and I didn’t find any luls throughout and it held my attention all the way through to the end. The ending is quite surprising and definitely a curve ball I did not see coming at all. I was completely shocked and shook like “Sadie Ryan you really got me on that one!”
If you are a fan of books like Cuckoo by Sophie Draper or even The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides, you know the kind of books that give you quite a minf*ck right when you least expect it, then you will definitely love Behind Closed Doors. I highly, highly recommend! This is definitely a five star read for me!
