BLOG TOUR - Perfect Parents


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

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.

Moving into the home of Marcia and Travis Thorpe seems like a sound decision for Grace, as she has agreed to become a surrogate so that they can fulfill their wish to become parents. This was not an easy decision for Grace to make, especially as she suffered a real tragedy years before. In fact, this book is broken up into the past and present, thus showing how she was forever devastated by a painful loss. Grace is hoping to assuage the guilt she feels from that loss by the actions she is taking now.

Especially considering such a difficult loss proves contrary to her decision to become a surrogate. Grace has to not only bury her pain deeply, but she must stay present enough to give her baby away once it is born. This is further complicated by unusual experiences she us suddenly facing, some of which are terrifying. Meanwhile, Grace is at a crossroad in her life. All she has left is a relationship with best friend Sydney, who has quite a busy life. Feeling completely alone, Grace is forced to deal with the strange relationship she has with the Thorpes. Meanwhile, Grace meets Clayton at a local coffee shop, and this proves to be a true blessing, even if it is unclear to her at the start. 

Perfect Parents was a thrill ride from start to finish. This story had some surprising twists and turns, which definitely kept me guessing.  It also had some emotional drama, especially as it dealt with infertility and loss, thus bringing in a huge measure of sadness. As this story definitely had its ups and downs I was more than pleased by the conclusion. 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.

Please enjoy my YouTube video review - 


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.
