Review - The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine

The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine
Publisher: Harper Collins
Release date: 17 October 2017
Rating: *** and a half
Back cover blurb: She has the perfect life. But not for long… How far would you go to make all your dreams come true? Amber Patterson is tired of being a nobody: a plain, invisible woman who melts into the background. She deserves more. She deserves a life of wealth, luxury and leisure. Daphne Parrish is golden girl of the exclusive town of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut. With her modelesque looks, her picture-perfect mansion and her millionaire husband, Jackson, she has everything Amber has ever wanted. Amber’s envy could eat her alive—if she didn't have a plan. Gradually, Amber insinuates herself into the Parrish family’s life. Before long, she has become Daphne’s closest confidante, and is catching the eye of Jackson. But a skeleton from her past could undermine everything Amber has worked for, and if discovered, her well-laid plan may end in disaster…

Amber Patterson watches Daphne Parrish in the gym everyday. Some might say she wants to be Daphne Parrish, or that she wants Daphne Parrish's life. Whilst both of those things may be true, Amber wants not to be Daphne Parrish, per see, but she definitely wants to be Mrs. Parrish.

Amber wants Daphne's husband, Jackson Parrish, and she won't stop until she gets him.

Amber is clever, comes across a sweet girl, perhaps a little naive. She ingrains herself into the Parrish's life quickly, becoming best friend and confidant to Daphne, and a welcome distraction for Jackson.

She assists Daphne with the daily running of her charity and ensures that she is the only "friend" Daphne can truly rely on. Amber is no friend to Daphne...

With her sights firmly set on Jackson she goes out of her way to make him notice her, but so subtly that no one around them notices.

Soon enough the pair are embarking on an affair, but Amber knows she must be careful if she is to truly ensnare Jackson in the tangled web she weaves.

But Daphne Parrish is no fool, and she won't be taken by one for anybody. Amber may well have underestimated her rival, but is it too late for Daphne to save her marriage? And does she even want to?

Split into Daphne's and Amber's perspectives, the last Mrs. Parrish is a novel that will have you taking a sharp intake of breath at a certain point, because no matter what you thought was going to happen... you will still be suprised!

The Last Mrs. Parrish is available now via Amazon online and all good book shops.

Thank You to the publishers who approved my request via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
