"'The Last Mrs. Parrish' by Liv Constantine will keep you up. In a 'can't put it down' way. It's 'The Talented Mr. Ripley' with XX chromosomes."--The Skimm

"Deliciously duplicitous. . . . equally as twisty, spellbinding, and addictive as Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl or Paula Hawkins's The Girl on the Train."--Library Journal (starred review)

The mesmerizing debut about a coolly manipulative woman and a wealthy "golden couple," from a stunning new voice in psychological suspense.

Some women get everything. Some women get everything they deserve.

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 needed a light but captivating story and Mrs. Parrish didn't disappoint. It's a story with an unexpected twist.

The Last Mrs. Parrish is a fast paced novel featuring devious plot twists and turns that is told through the alternating perspectives of two women who both have their own agendas. Overall it was an enjoyable read that kept my interest and made me want to read "just one more chapter..."late into the night, however I didn't feel that it fully embodied the depth and intricacy of Gillian Flynn's "Gone Girl", despite it being hailed as its successor. Readers who've enjoyed similar novels such as "The Girl Before" and others that feature unreliable characters in the psychological thriller genre are sure to enjoy this novel.

This is the successor to GONE GIRL: sex, intrigue, and deceit.

A delightfully devious gem of a novel set among the glittering world of high-powered New York socialites, Missouri-born outsider Amber will do anything to get in, and slithers into the lives of Daphne Parrish and her perfect husband, Jackson. But the Parrishes themselves harbor secrets, and Amber soon learns how differently the game is played on their level. Perfect for domestic thriller fans and those who like revenge served with Louboutin heels.
