Summer Book Selection:

Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris

July 20 | 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM | Alumni Center

Behind Closed Doors is about the perfect couple, you know the kind; he has looks and wealth and she has charm and elegance. Jack is a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case and Grace is the flawless homemaker, gardener, and cook while doting on her disabled younger sister. Are the newlyweds the perfect couple? Some might wonder what really happens when the dinner party is over, the front door closes, and the high security metal shutters lock down.  There is haunting suspense; be prepared.
