The Last Mrs. Parrish is the debut psychological thriller by Liv Constantine, a writing duo consisting of sisters Lynne and Valerie Constantine, and what a debut it is!
The novel switches perspective between Amber Patterson, an unlikable, terrifying, and fascinating woman who's tired of being a nobody, and Daphne Parrish, wife to multi-millionaire Jackson Parrish, and mother to a couple of pretty awesome kids.
The story kicks off with Amber putting a plan in place to insert herself into the lives of Daphne and Jackson to get what she thinks she's entitled to and, in the end, most certainly gets what she deserves. No spoilers.
I'm not sure if Amber should be classified as a Narcissist, a Sociopath, a Psychopath, or some combination of the three, but she's certainly unnerving. This is a very real look into what manipulation and gaslighting can do to a person.
What makes this books so incredibly terrifying, is that I think we all know an Amber or two. This could actually happen, and does happen, all the time. People like this are very real. I've certainly met my fair share of them. They're emotionless, ruthless people, who will stop at nothing to get what they think they deserve.
I have absolutely no complaints about The Last Mrs. Parrish except that I didn't want the book to end. I really of hope it get's picked up for a film as it would make an amazing movie.
Easy 5 Stars - Would read again.
