Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I’m sorry, but this book bored me. Completely and utterly bored me.
Transparent, right from the start, reading this felt like walking through treacle. There were far too many flashbacks, which had already been described earlier in the book and were entirely unnecessary. Also, the bad guy was too bad. I don’t believe that anyone is that black and white in their evil schemes. If there had been one redeeming feature, I would have enjoyed this book far more.
No one is evil all through, and no one is good all through either.
I know some people really enjoyed this, so give it a go, I’d love to hear about it if you loved this book.

I haven’t read this book myself, but I agree with your point about the bad guy. It’s a bugbear of mine when an antagonist is evil for evil’s sake because it’s often not believable.

I also haven’t read this, but I dislike characters that are one-dimensional, particularly when they are villains. Villains/antagonists can be some of the most interesting characters in a book, so it’s always disappointing to see them reduced to Saturday morning cartoon characters (I don’t even think that’s a thing anymore. I just dated myself with that reference, but you probably get my drift 😁)
