How far would you go to make all your dreams come true?
Amber Patterson is tired of being a nobody: an invisible woman who melts into the background. She deserves more. She deserves a life of wealth, luxury and leisure.
Daphne Parrish is the golden girl of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut. With her model looks, her picture-perfect mansion and her millionaire husband, Jackson, she has everything Amber wants.
Amber’s envy could eat her alive—if she didn’t have a plan. Before long, she has become Daphne’s closest friend, and is catching the eye of Jackson. But a skeleton from her past could destroy everything, and if discovered, Amber’s well-laid plan may end in disaster…
A Master Class in Manipulation!!
The Last Mrs. Parrish is described as a psychological thriller with a shocking twist and it more than lives up to that! It would be so easy to tell all as my head is buzzing with everything which happened between the pages – but I don’t do spoilers!
Daphne Parrish has the life of luxury. A loving, attentive and extremely rich husband who showers her with only the best things in life. Designer wardrobe, the very best accessories, jewellery of the highest calibre, a most beautiful home with staff to keep it in perfect tip-top condition and two wonderful daughters. From the outside it is the perfect marriage – but what about from the inside?
Amber Patterson only just makes enough to cover her rent on an apartment which is one up from a hovel – at least in her eyes. She wants what Daphne has and sets out to befriend her in an effort to become her ‘bestie’ and an indispensable friend. But is she what she really seems?
This is a striking and sensational novel. With superb characters and a highly-crafted plot, it is so easy to read, drawing you in and immersing you in the lives of the two women. The pace is relentless and the story moves along at quite a clip. The final chapters are mind-blowing.
My first thought was ‘I wish I was only just beginning this’. It is a breathtaking read. And, as with all good stories, justice is served – and on a silver platter at that. I wouldn’t have missed this read for anything. It is one astounding novel and I really cannot recommend it highly enough – it’s THAT good!
My grateful thanks to publisher Harper Collins for letting me access an arc via NetGalley in exchange for my honest, original and unbiased review.
