Review:

Well, this novel is kind of hard for me to discuss. It struck me on a soul deep level. The story is a very intense one, filled with joy and sorrow, love and near hate. I really felt for the heroine of the tale, Faith. I also felt for Calvin, her husband and sometime friend. It is a masterfully told tale of heart ache and trials. This novel is not for joyful days.

Does the perfect wife and the perfect husband make for the perfect marriage?

For anyone in a relationship, the words ‘we need to talk’ can only mean one thing. In the last twenty-two years, the McKenzies have been through it, survived it, learned by it, and grown stronger from it, because life didn’t stop for breath when they needed it. Amongst the tears and the tragedies, the hopes and happiness, they’ve built something amazing: a happy family, a luxury lifestyle and a booming empire. Don’t they deserve to have it all?

But for the perfect wife, those four sinister words mean something entirely different. They’re a summons into dark places where what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors.

Faith has no doubt in Calvin’s undying love for her. It’s what kept her sane in the darkest hours. If only she could figure out what it is she does wrong… because it’s rapidly becoming apparent their tainted love is running out of time.

An Interview with the Author:

What make the Behind Closed Doors series special?

When I set out to write Tainted Love, my aim was to create something that mirrored the books I love to read. I’m a romantic at heart, I love commercial women’s fiction. But as a writer I often find myself sliding into darker edgier stories. For this reason, the Behind Closed Doors series has a mixture of elements; compelling psychological thriller, gripping suspense and gritty romance. Written in the style of intimate letters, its feels like the characters are friends and they’re telling you the deepest secret.

Who would enjoy these books?

The Behind Closed Doors series is for anyone who enjoys a gripping romance, or a compelling thriller, or stories that stay with you long after you’ve reached the end. There’s also the traditional elements of contemporary women’s fiction and family sagas. Each book has a different love story at its heart and there are lots of family dramas!

What order should I read them in?

This series is an ongoing women’s fiction family saga and the series should be read in the following order:

TAINTED LOVE – Book One
BLURRED LINES – Book Two
TO LIVE WITHOUT – Short Story (Book 2.5)
CROSSING LINES – Book Three

The Behind Closed Doors series eBook Categories:
– Gripping Psychological Thriller
– Contemporary Women’s Fiction Love Story And Family Saga
– Gritty Romance
– Compelling Thriller
– Debut Novel
– Gripping Suspense
