I had this book sitting on my shelf for months. I don't know what it was but I just never picked it up. Something else always seemed more interesting. Take my advice, if you have this on your shelf, bring it to the top of your tbr list. This book was full of plot twists...things I never saw coming. Your emotions are all over the place with this one. I can't say too much so as not to spoil it but I have read many reviews where people did not like this book because you're reading from the perspective of the con artist, then the next part of the book you go over the same scenarios but now in the mind of the victim. I can see how maybe some people don't like this kind of writing, but for me personally, I like this type of psychological suspense where the how and the why's and the other perspective is revealed. It's a fast read and I would say it's a good one to use as a palette cleanser.
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.
