I did a LOT of reading while in Alaska! I shared The Storyteller’s Secret by Sejal Badani a few weeks back and today I’m dishing on The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine. This was an engaging psychological thriller, full of twists and turns and a clever ending. If you love Gone Girl and Girl on the Train, this one is a great choice.
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.
I’ve got When We Left Havana on my bedside already. It’s such a great story that I’m reading it slowly to help make it last. What are you reading??
