My Night's Book Clubbed [February 2020]

Ah, Valentine's Day.  A day to show our loved ones just how much we care about them.  A day filled with hearts, roses, and chocolates.  A red and pink explosion of emotions.  To celebrate this over commercialized "love" day, it is only fitting that we have book club choices about crazy couples and their dark and twisted secrets.  You didn't think I was going to choice a romance novel for our February book club pick, did you?? 😊 Oh no, no.  My Night's Book Clubbed does not adhere to the typical book club cliches.  This month, we have two options for you to vote on.  Both are thrillers about psycho couples and what goes on in their twisted relationships.

Below are the February 2020 virtual book club choices. Join this month in the comments below or on Instagram @mynightsbooked and let me know which book you vote for.  I will announce the book club choice and scheduled discussion date.

Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris

Synopsis:

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He's a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You're hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You'd like to get to know Grace better ... But it's difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable ... Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn't work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows ... Some might wonder what's really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.
