The Missing Widow by L.G. Davis

I’m so pleased to be part of the tour today for this gripping book. Thanks so much to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

I thought we would be safe here. But I was wrong.

My son Clark and I live in a beautiful cabin outside a rural town, somewhere nobody will find us. I could not have found a more perfect place to start over, shielded by the trees and far away from prying eyes. But when I find a newspaper clipping on my porch, it drives fear into my bones. Widow wanted for murder screams the headline. And that’s my face in the picture, circled with red marker. I look out into the forest, but I can’t see anyone. How did they find me? And what do they want?

I don’t know where to run next, or how to make sure my son is safe. And deep down I know the only way I can finally be free is to find out what really happened that night a year ago, when my dear husband Brett died.

I’m sure I didn’t kill him… did I? But that night is a blur, and as I try to prove my innocence, the dark secrets I uncover force me to question everything I believed. The people I trusted most are not who I thought they were. And the person who is coming for me is very close to home…

An utterly heart-pounding and twisty psychological thriller that will keep you up all night. Perfect for fans of Gone GirlBehind Closed Doors and The Girl on the Train.

Previously published under the title The Widow’s Cabin.


I was very excited to read this book, having enjoyed the author’s previous book so much. I was totally gripped by this one, and it was one of those books that I was quite sorry when it had to come to an end.

I won’t spoil the plot by telling you what the main character, Meghan was accused of doing, but it’s not what I was expecting. I thought that she might have been a bit foolish to go on the run, but as I read more of the background story I could understand what she was up against.

I really liked her as a character and I really wanted things to work out for her, but as the tension and suspense built up it seemed as though she was in danger and it made for a very heart-pounding read.

This book is so cleverly plotted, with twists and turns that I really didn’t see coming. The atmosphere is tense and it builds up so well to the ending. This is a book that I couldn’t put down and I just flew through the pages. A really superb psychological thriller.


Rating: 5 out of 5.



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.
