Synopsis (from Goodreads):
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.
I knew this book was going to be twisted, but I wasn’t expecting that. If you’ve read it, you know exactly what I’m talking about. And if you haven’t? I’d highly recommend you drop everything and go binge it.
I’m going to be super vague in this review, but it’s on purpose. There are so many twists and turns within these pages, and they were freaking awesome, but I don’t want to take away any of the excitement of being introduced to them as they unravel throughout the story. So here’s what you need to know:
- You’re going to love and hate these characters. In big ways.
- The story might feel a bit slow in the beginning, but stay with it. It’s necessary.
- Antiheroine anyone?
- That ending!
Ok, so now that I’ve basically told you nothing, I assure you it’s an exciting read that’s completely worth your time. I went into it with no more information than I just gave you, and I can’t imagine having read it any other way.
Highly recommend. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
