For that reason [Paraphrase for 'because of this'?]

Hi teachers,
Would the paraphrase, 'for that reason' be an appropriate one for, 'because of this' in the context?
They are going to be late, and Mary is very angry with Peter because of this.

I have no intention of substituting the paraphrase for the original one. It's just to explain the meaning to the students.

Thanks in advance.
