    The book cover immediately caught my eye because we’ve painted out front door red.
    Behind Closed Doors is a superb psychological thriller, with fast non-stop action, I found it un-put-downable.
    Tina and Glyn are a married couple working as lawyers at the same firm, they are successful professionals with a happy family life. After the arrival of a new employee Megan, constant incidents occur all indicating that Tina is incompetent.
    Tina realises all these problems were created by Megan, but she can’t understand why and no-one believes her. Soon it’s apparent that Megan intends to destroy Lisa’s career, her family life and anyone who stands in the way.
    Behind Closed Doors is a compulsive read. The author, Sadie Ryan has written an excellent thriller with an surprising ending that took me totally by surprise. 5* Highly recommended.

    Tina Valentine and her husband Glyn have a perfect marriage and two gorgeous children. They work in the same law practice and Tina is keen to make partner. However, the arrival of a new secretary, Megan Pearson, threatens those ambitions. It’s clear Megan is out to cause trouble and her target is Tina, but what are her reasons for doing this?
    From the beginning I was pulled into this story. As soon as Megan arrives the problems start and begin to undermine Megan’s work. But it’s not long before it intrudes into her family life too. Tina is sure Megan is behind all the problems she’s having but no one seems to believe her. It’s a definite roller coaster ride. Just when you think things can’t get any worse, they do. And the people she has always relied on for support suddenly aren’t there anymore.
    There are certainly a lot of twists and turns to this story. Written from Tina’s viewpoint, there are moments when she doubts her own sanity and yet it’s clear Megan’s actions are far from innocent. I have to say I was surprised by the ending. Didn’t see it coming at all.

    I’m not usually a fan of psychological thrillers, but WOW! This was a page turner that kept me engaged until the very end. Tina has a great life until Megan comes along – it’s scary how quickly things change and spin out of control. Great read, highly recommend!
