BLOG TOUR - My Husband's Secret


I thought I knew my husband. I was wrong...

I have the perfect life: a loving marriage, and an adorable little daughter, Mia, who is always full of smiles. But when my husband Keith is hit by a car, my whole world is turned upside down. With my heart breaking in his cold white hospital room, I hold his hand and tell him how much I love him. Then just as Keith slips into a coma, I hear him say four words that change everything: I took a life.

Mia and I move into my childhood home with my parents for support, and I spend hours by Keith’s hospital bedside, willing him to wake up. I keep his last words to myself; I cannot believe my gentle husband would hurt anyone. But as I search through his belongings, it becomes clear that he was hiding something.

And when I discover a note in my parents’ attic, my breath catches in my throat. My husband is not the only one in my family with a dark secret, and I’m beginning to think what happened to him was far from an accident…

But just as I get closer to the truth, my daughter goes missing. I’ll do whatever it takes to save my child. But I soon realize I was wrong about everyone I thought I could trust…

Totally gripping and unputdownable domestic suspense about family secrets and lies. Perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty and Diane Chamberlain.

I took a life  While Keith is lying in a coma due to a hit-and-run accident, those are the four words he uttered to Avery as he was drifting away. Day after day Avery visits Keith in the hospital, hoping against hope that he will awaken and for him to reassure her that he is not a murderer. Unable to let matters wait, Avery starts looking for answers, and this includes digging deeply when it comes to matters concerning Keith. She might not like what she finds, but she is not going to give up until she finds out the meaning of those terrible four words.

Concern for their young daughter Mia, with as much time as Avery is spending at the hospital, she decides to temporarily move back in with her parents. This is no easy task, as her relationship with them is rather strained. Furthermore, Avery wonders if any interactions that Keith had with her parents could shed any light on his declaration. One day as Avery starts looking through a storage room in her parent's basement, she goes through box after box looking for anything that they might have been hiding from her. She eventually lands upon a note that presents a strong clue. A clue that shakes her up even more.

While Avery's character is written in first-person in this engaging novel, there are some alternating perspectives from the past. Then there is "The Watcher", with that unnamed character's point of view. These multiple roles in this book work flawlessly to create incredible pacing, a riveting story and shocking twists and turns. This all culminates in a jaw-dropping conclusion.

L. G. Davis has written a thrilling book that any lover of domestic suspense would thoroughly enjoy. While only my second  read by Ms. Davis, I can say that I will not only look forward to whatever she has coming up next, but that I want to exhaust her backlist.

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

Please enjoy my following YouTube video as well - 


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.
