Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing Perfect Parents by L.G. Davis, published by Bookouture.


Giving away my child is the hardest decision I have ever had to make. But when I move into the Thorpes’ stunning home so they can support me through the pregnancy, it seems like they are everything I could have hoped for. They cook me delicious, healthy meals and make sure I’m getting the best medical care. They never question my background, or why I am giving them my child.

But before long, I begin to wonder if something is very wrong with the Thorpes. I try to ignore how Travis lets his hand linger on mine for a little too long, and how Marcia comes to check on me during the night. I tell myself that when they control and monitor my movements, it’s just because they care.

Keeping my baby safe and making sure they are going to the perfect family means everything to me. But when a threatening note turns up outside my door and I begin to unravel the Thorpes’ secrets, I realise I may not make it out of here alive.

After everything I’ve been through, I’m not going to give up without a fight. And I’ll do anything to keep my baby safe…

A heart-pounding and totally gripping read that will have you glued to the pages late into the night. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the TrainI Am Watching You and Shari Lapena.

I gave them my baby… but can I trust them?…”

l imagine there would be nothing more precious than the gift of carrying a child for couples that are unable to conceive. For Grace being able to do this for Marcia and Travis Thorpe, is redemption for what she feels she needs to do to make up for past events. But there is more to the Tropes than meets the eye. They both definitely had me feeling very uncomfortable and creeped out!

Now this is a gripping read in the present, but it is the backstory of our lead Grace as to why she wanted to be a surrogate that is so compelling. It definitely pulled on my heartstrings and had me reaching for the tissues. I really liked her character, felt protective of and was rooting for her throughout.

Davis does a great job of drawing you into the story and making the pages turn at a brisk pace. I really struggled to put this one down and it still played around in my mind when I had to. Highly addictive, it is definitely another must read from this talented author.

Thank you to L.G. Davis, Bookouture and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Perfect Parents, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

Follow the tour along the way and see what these bloggers also thought about Perfect Parents. My thanks to Bookouture for my spot on this tour and for the promotional materials.


Liz’s story began in a refugee camp in Angola, where she spent the first eight years of her life. 

After that, she spent some years in Namibia (her home country), South Africa, and Germany. She now lives in Vienna, Austria, with her husband and two children.

Liz wrote her first full-length novel at eighteen and hid it in a box under her bed. Several others soon followed it.

Her passion lies in writing edge-of-the-seat psychological thrillers that give readers the same rush they would get on a rollercoaster.
