Behind Closed Doors by Sadie Ryan @rararesources

Today I’m delighted to be featuring my review of Cheshire author Sadie Ryan’s book Behind Closed Doors. Many thanks to Rachel Gilbey for the tour invite.

About this book…

She’s in your house, now she wants your life … 
Tina Valentine has it all: the loving family, the beautiful house, the successful career. 
But then Megan Pearson starts work at Tina’s law firm and with her arrival the perfect world Tina has built for herself starts to collapse as it becomes clear that the newcomer is intent on infiltrating every aspect of her life.  
Something is obviously wrong with Megan but nobody else seems to see it. As the mind games and manipulations continue, Tina comes to the sickening conclusion that now she’s opened the door to Megan, it’s going to be impossible to make her leave …

My review…

This is a twisty game of cat and mouse between two women who both appear to be keeping secrets. Tina has it all-the adoring husband, successful career and two gorgeous children-but when Glyn employs Megan at their firm of solicitors, she seems to have a real problem with Tina pretty much from the moment she gets there! Why does Megan seem to hate Tina so much and why can’t everyone else see how she is trying to undermine Tina? Tina is determined to find out even if it means having to face her past-a past she has tried very hard to forget…

I often found it hard to feel empathy for Tina because she really didn’t help herself when it came to protecting herself and her family from golden girl Megan. Megan not only seems determined to bring down Tina but also take over her life as well! Neither women were particularly likeable but that added an extra frisson to their psychological battle that kept me glued to the pages, desperate to uncover what lay at the root of the hatred between them!

This is an assured debut novel from Sadie Ryan. It’s fast paced and twisty storyline guarantee that you won’t know what’s around the next corner and the ending really delivered for me. I’m looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next!

I am a Norfolk girl living in leafy Cheshire with my grumpy Scotsman. A mum and nana who lives for my family but who is also addicted to reading (and Marmite!) I will read almost anything but my preferred genres to review are psychological thrillers, crime procedural novels or women's fiction. My kindle is my life but I also have a substantial bookshelf in my cosy reading room where I can go to escape the stresses of family life with plenty of tea and chocolate. I am a member of netgalley and bookbridg. I review on Amazon, where I'm a Top 500 reviewer, and Goodreads. You can always find me over on Twitter @jocatrobertson for any review requests.
