I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.

L.G. Davis writes novels that will send chills down your spine and keep you up at night. She also writes in other genres under the name Liz Grace Davis.

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…

“Something doesn’t feel right. “

Grace is trying to work through her trauma, and when she thinks she has a plan figured out, she leaps. Marcia and Travis want a baby, and after years of trying, they decide to use a surrogate. Enter Grace. What should be a beautiful arrangement suddenly becomes a fight to survive.

I did not see the twist coming. Wow! I found the use of time in this novel really interesting. You feel like you’re going through a nine-month pregnancy. I enjoyed how this story was told; the alternating timelines were good.

The characters were well developed. Everyone is mysterious, so you don’t know who you can trust, and everyone seems to have something in their past they want to keep hidden. I enjoyed the character arch throughout.

This was a dark story, with a lot of scary situations. I did enjoy the backstory everyone had and how they all worked through their traumas. That was handled well.

This was a slower burn until the last half of the book, then the plot took off at a breakneck speed and didn’t slow down. The way this novel ends will give you goosebumps!
