The Last Mrs. Parrish
by Liv Constantine
About the Book:
Amber Patterson is fed up. She’s tired of being a nobody: a plain, invisible woman who blends into the background. She deserves more—a life of money and power like the one blond-haired, blue-eyed goddess Daphne Parrish takes for granted.
To everyone in the exclusive town of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut, Daphne—a socialite and philanthropist—and her real-estate mogul husband, Jackson, are a couple straight out of a fairy tale.
Amber’s envy could eat her alive . . . if she didn’t have a plan. Amber uses Daphne’s compassion and caring to insinuate herself into the family’s life—the first step in a meticulous scheme to undermine her. Before long, Amber is Daphne’s closest confidante, traveling to Europe with the Parrishes and their lovely young daughters, and growing closer to Jackson. But a skeleton from her past may undermine everything that Amber has worked towards, and if it is discovered, her well-laid plan may fall to pieces.
With shocking turns and dark secrets that will keep you guessing until the very end, The Last Mrs. Parrish is a fresh, juicy, and utterly addictive thriller from a diabolically imaginative talent.
The Last Mrs. Parrish is an AMAZING READ!!!! Just be prepared to do nothing else until you have finished the very last page!!!!
Amber is tired of the life she has lived, and she decides it is time to change all of that. She isn’t going to just be a wallflower anymore. She has spent years putting her plan in motion, and now, it’s time. Unfortunately, Daphne and her husband, Jackson are the target.
Amber truly exemplifies what a villain really is . She is full of envy, and it eats her up alive until all her darkness consumes her. She uses Daphne’s compassion to gain access to her family. She feels like everything that Daphne has should be hers, and she is going after it no matter what.
The genius of this book is that it is told in both Amber and Daphne POVs. The first part is narrated by Amber. It gives readers a deep look into her deranged mind. The second part is narrated by Daphne. Readers get a look into her life, and they discover that privilege and wealth isn’t all it appears to be. All I can say is the deeper you get into it, the more addictive it becomes.
This is a book filled with shocking twists and layers of deceit and secrets. It is somewhat of a slow build-up until you get to Part 2, and then buckle your seat belt because it is a FAST ride after that! Don’t lose patience because the build-up is completely worth it. It really is the foundation of the story and sets the tone for the rest of the book. If you are looking for a fast-paced psychological thriller, you can’t go wrong with this one.
