Publisher's Summary

The author of the "suspenseful, atmospheric, and completely riveting" (Megan Miranda, New York Times best-selling author) debut The Winter Sister returns with a darkly thrilling novel about a woman who comes to believe that she has a connection to a decades-old kidnapping and, now that the victim has gone missing again, begins a frantic search to learn what happened in the past.

When Fern Douglas sees the news about Astrid Sullivan, a 34-year-old missing woman from Maine, she is positive that she knows her. Fern’s husband is sure it’s because of Astrid’s famous kidnapping - and equally famous return - 20 years ago, but Fern has no memory of that, even though it happened an hour outside her New Hampshire hometown. And when Astrid appears in Fern’s recurring nightmare, one in which a girl reaches out to her, pleading, Fern fears that it’s not a dream at all, but a memory.

Back home in New Hampshire, Fern purchases a copy of Astrid’s recently published memoir - which may have provoked her original kidnapper to abduct her again - and as she reads through its chapters and visits the people and places within it, she discovers more evidence that she has an unsettling connection to the missing woman. As Fern’s search becomes increasingly desperate, she hopes to remember her past so she can save Astrid in the present...before it’s too late.

Featuring Megan Collins' signature "dark, tense, and completely absorbing" (Booklist) prose and plenty of shocking twists and turns, Behind the Red Door is an arresting thriller that will haunt you long after you hear the last word.

Ugh! These Characters Are Horrendous!

In spite of disliking every single person in this book, I got thru the whole thing to find out what happened. Beware -- they are truly yucky! I feel like my psyche needs a shower.

Enjoyable with every twist and turn!

5-Stars:

There is one major thing that I love the most about a Megan Collins book; and that’s her major twists and turns. You can never guess what’s going to happen because it always changes and I LOVE IT!

Fern’s anxiety that has manifested over the years is so real that it feels like I can feel it. The way she speaks and thinks feels honest and true.

The plot twist so good that I won’t talk about because I hate giving spoilers, but they are great!

After the reading “The Winter Sister”, Megan Collins has turned into an automatic buy author for me.

I had hope but.....

I read all the reviews before I started this book and even after the first couple hours I had to go back and read them again. Several people said it was a slow start and just to get through it, so that’s what I did. However, with only 2 hours left, I was still wondering when it got better.
It was an ok book. The main characters repeated the same phases which I know was to help explain their personalities but man it was annoying.
The twists and turns were almost painful for me because they were so drawn out.

Twists and Turns

This book was great start to finish! Apart from character growth there are turns around every corner. You think you know what’s going to happen and they switch it up on you. Fantastic read/listen!

a good binge listen

If youre looking for an amazing story where you dont see then end coming this book is not for you. Much like the Winter Sister then end is very predictable but like her first novel an enjoyable read. I would recommend this book if you need a lighter thriller read with a some what happy-ish ending

Don’t even bother

What a typical American story the tiny weak woman who wants to please her husband wants to make him happy the narrator with that husky flirty voice. Oh YUCK. IM SO OVER AMERICAN CRAP. behind the red door. JUST STAY THERE.
