Make sure you read this with a glass of wine or a box of chocolates, as they may save your life by distracting you from the story long enough to remind you oxygen is an essential part of survival. Then he tells her that they cannot go see Millie at the hospital before their flight, as they don’t have time. i don't believe in pure unmitigated evil that doesn't leave a trace; this The Picture of Dorian Gray-type of situation where a man is just sooo handsome and gallant that no one has a clue about his innate wickedness. Luckily, he is involved in a high profile, time-consuming case that, as court draws nearer, starts to wear on his mind. it's a little silly, but it is indeed a sort of modern take on those old gothic romance novels or, again, a lifetime movie: a gullible young ingenue is led astray by a handsome but irredeemably wicked man with sadistic inclinations, and how she eventually rises up and triumphs over his murderous ass.

Things get off to a bad start at the wedding when Millie falls down the stairs leading to the registration office. Regardless, Behind Closed Doors isn’t a book I recommend unless you plan on taking a six hour plane flight.As the story unfolds, both in the past and in the present I anxiously waited for the other shoe to drop. She says it was because at her birthday party, Millie told everyone her favorite color was yellow, but in other conversations, Jack referred to Millie’s future room as being painted red. Esther picks Grace up at the airport, and to Grace’s surprise, helps her come up with a plausible cover story for the murder. But the initial chill I got when Jack turned from charming to monster in a heartbeat, was quickly replaced by a sense of restlessness as I continued to read, and at first I wasn't sure why.

Because Esther and Rufus are newcomers, he makes sure that the conversation as we eat our soufflés is for their benefit. Barristers usually act on the instructions of solicitors, and they generally don't deal with clients directly.What Grace didn't know at the time was that I had seen her and Millie in the park the week before and had immediately fallen in love with her.

She's the complete opposite of Diane — tall, blonde, slim, reserved — and I can't help respecting her for being the first person to step into our house and not go on about how beautiful it is. To make things worse, there is a stark absence of descriptive imagery, the characterisation is gossamer-thin and I've seen more twists on a runway. Excusing myself, I go through to the kitchen to fetch the canapés I made earlier, and to put the last touches to the dinner. São jantares glamorosos, eletrizantes, onde os convivas se deixam arrebatar por aquele fabuloso casal, tão requintado, tão carismático, tão perfeito! In summary, the book was OK for a first effort, but I find myself mildly annoyed at the number of five star reviews it's been given all over book sites on the internet.Grace is frantic and considers putting off the wedding but Jack convinces her that while Millie won't be able to attend the wedding, she is otherwise just fine. You’ll be done with it right as you touch down, and then you’ll forget it as you go about the rest of your day. If they were, I would be near to tears with stress at the delay, especially when he starts explaining some of the different techniques I used to create the painting. Not everyone is lucky enough to land a Gillian Flynn movie break, and ultimately, its your readers who will be paying your bills.

Certainly worth a read although, sure; unlike Jack Angel's twisted idea of perfection, this book is as imperfect as the imperfections it sets out to explore. the fun of this book is not in figuring anything out, but in watching it unfold in its absolutely relentless pacing; one of those white-knuckle, edge of your seat reads where the story is broken up between the past and the present, as the time between those two periods narrows, bringing the two stories together for the dramatic explosion. Grace uses it to her advantage, luring him into her room for a nightly chat over a glass of whisky as they discuss the case. Sure enough, with a kiss to the top of my head, he agrees with Diane that I am indeed a superb cook, and I breathe a silent sigh of relief. After a whirlwind courtship, Grace and Jack get married, though the affair doesn’t go entirely smoothly, with Millie tumbling down the stairs hours before the ceremony and breaking her leg.

And that makes all the difference in keeping the story afloat and awaiting the next wave of attention. If you thrive on books that leave you feeling trapped, isolated and with no one to turn to, then this is definitely the book for you. this book is perfect proof as to why i think people who get married to someone they have known less than six months are completely out of their minds.
