Review: The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constatine

A mesmerizing debut psychological thriller full of delicious twists about a coolly manipulative woman who worms her way into the lives of a wealthy “golden couple” from Connecticut to achieve the privileged life she wants.

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.

This book gripped me in a way that revitalized my love for reading. I’ve been in a book funk lately and I was anxious to get pulled into a psychological thriller that I’d have a hard time putting down. The twists were so mind-blowing and the author kept me guessing up until the very end.

The book was told in two points of view and I have to say the first half was a little bit of a struggle to get through. I really hated Amber and she got under my skin unlike any other character I’ve read before. Finishing her chapters and getting the story from Daphne’s point of view was such a relief!

I don’t want to give too much away, but this is a five-star recommendation from me! I’m floored that this is the author’s debut and can’t wait to read more.

Rating: 5/5 Stars
