Summary

THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER AND DECEMBER PICK FOR REESE WITHERSPOON'S HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB

Featuring a sneak peek at Liv Constantine’s second novel, THE LAST TIME I SAW YOU

"Filled with envy, deception, and power, it’s a great reading escape. And there is a thrilling twist at the end!!" —Reese Witherspoon

“Will keep you up. In a ‘can’t put it down’ way. It’s ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’ with XX chromosomes.”—The Skimm

“Deliciously duplicitous. . . . equally as twisty, spellbinding, and addictive as Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl or Paula Hawkins’s The Girl on the Train.”—Library Journal (starred review)

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....

In The Last Mrs. Parrish, Constantine (actually the pen name of two sisters writing together) tells the story of Amber, a woman who feels no one sees her and is determined to be seen. She covets the life of Daphne, married to a rich and handsome husband, and does everything in her power to take that life for herself, including becoming the best friend Daphne can rely on. But it might be better for Amber to stay in the shadows, as she has a past with the ability to end all her power plays and bring her down.I wanted to love this book. I've heard so many good things about it, it's all over book lovers' social media accounts, and it seems to be the book everyone is talking about. So when I finally made it to the top of the extensive hold list for a copy from the library, I was really excited.The first part had me hooked. While Amber is highly unlikable, that is the point. Her scheming ways, the hint of something from her past lurking just out of view, the possibility that she will be found out, the possibility that she will get everything she wants...I flew through Part 1.And then I got to Part 2.While I absolutely appreciate a big twist in a book (actually one of my absolute favorite things to discover in a book I'm reading), the twist still has to make sense. It has to be rooted in some way to what has come before. It can't be shocking just to be shocking.This twist, while definitely surprising, felt out of left field to me. Then Part 3, while satisfying in many ways, also felt a little too neat and tidy for what had come before.This book definitely had potential, and it was by no means a bad read. It kept me turning pages quickly, wanting to know what was coming next. But I've read a lot better. If you are looking for a book with these kinds of themes-love triangle, jealously, replacement-pick up The Wife Between Us instead, which spins a twist that will make you gasp out loud but still makes sense when you look back.

Lindas BOOK OBSESSION REVIEW OF “THE LAST MRS. PARRISH” by LIV CONSTANTINE I have to blame Liv Constantine, (the two authors) of “The Last Mrs. Parrish”.. for my anguish. This intense,and suspenseful psychological thriller had me actually biting and chewing my permanent gel nails, and I almost chipped a tooth! Also, I have dark circles from under my eyes from staying up all night captivated by your book! It’s really all your fault! Kudos to the authors for writing such an incredible story! What an adventure!! The genres for the book are Psychological Thriller, Mystery and Suspense, and Fiction. Be warned :the excitement and the twists and turns, and highs and lows won’t let you see what is coming next. The timeline of the story is in the present, with references to the past only when it pertains to the characters or events. The authors describe the colorful cast of characters as complex, complicated, greedy, dysfunctional, competitive, and possible psychologically unbalanced.(to say the least) To be part of the wealthy and fabulous Parrish family seems like a dream come true to Amber Patterson, a con-artist, who is looking to become friends with Daphne Parrish. Daphne is the wife of an extremely wealthy and handsome man. Amber has done her homework, and knows that Daphne’s sister had died from Cystic Fibrosis, and Daphne heads this Foundation. Why should Daphne have the jewelry, the servants, the vacations? Amber really thinks this presents an opportunity for her. But, is everything the way it seems? There are secrets and betrayals. I couldn’t predict many things that were happening. I highly recommend this intense, suspenseful, psychological thriller and mystery to any readers that enjoy any of these genres. I loved everything about this book. I kept repeating “OMG” “OMG” at the end of this book.” I received this book from a very special friend, and I can’t thank her enough! Happy reading!
