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 and her husband, Jackson—the beautiful philanthropist and the confident real estate mogul—are a golden couple straight out of a fairytale, blessed with two lovely young daughters.
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 Parrish family, 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.
I first heard of this book through my friend Breanne, who follows Reese Witherspoon's book club! I've been really into psychological thrillers lately so I immediately jumped on this one!
Psychological thrillers are hard to write reviews without spoilers--I don't want to give anything away! Typically I don't stay up late reading--I'm usually too tired by the time I get to bed and pass out, book on face after only a few pages. But THIS BOOK kept me up late two nights in a row! I was determined to finish it the second night no matter how late it got. It was that good and that addicting! The three characters were so well written, and the twist in the middle does surprise you. Perhaps I'm too used to creepy books but the first part was creepy but not creepy enough to make me feel like I was reading a thriller, and then bam! The twist in the middle where everything changes. That's where I just couldn't stop reading.
The end of this book was excellent. The book itself reminded me a lot of The Wife Between Us but I liked this one better because of the ending. This is a must read!
