"'The Last Mrs. Parrish' by Liv Constantine 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)

The mesmerizing debut about a coolly manipulative woman and a wealthy "golden couple," from a stunning new voice in psychological suspense.

Some women get everything. Some women get everything they deserve.

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 first third of the book is about deception.
The second third of the book is about abuse.
The third section of the book is about revenge.
If these elements are the recipe for a good book for you, you will like this book. I thought it was too much. Over the top. Shallow characters who are created with the attempt to make a good book.

THE LAST MRS. PARRISH is a dark, twisty, escapist read - perfect for the beach, a plane trip, or a long weekend. It’s that addictive. Author Liv Constantine is actually the pen name for 2 sisters who pooled their talents and collaborated long-distance to write this guilty pleasure. MRS. PARRISH has one of the most satisfying endings ever written even though it won’t come as that much of a surprise to readers who keep track of the bread crumbs the authors have sprinkled throughout the plot.

Really good. The first half I was worried it was just another chick lit, but then it dropped a bomb. I know compare a lot of the "twisty" books to this.

I enjoyed the big plot twist in this book, although it took a long time to get to it. But over all, this isn't a bad story.

I picked this book because it seemed interesting enough and was available to read with Overdrive. While reading, I kept noticing similarities to another story I had recently read, The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks. It was an eerily similar plot and I sort of felt like I was reading the same book over again. Interesting none-the-less, but not very original.
