The Last Mrs. Parrish

The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine

4.5 superb stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5


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 and her husband, Jackson—the beautiful philanthropist and the confident real estate mogul—are a golden couple straight out of a fairy tale, blessed with two lovely young daughters.

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 Parrish family, 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.


WOW! What a fun ride that was! The only reason this book is not getting the full five stars is it was a bit slow to start…. but once it hit about 40% WOWZA things went sideways…. and I loved it!

I just read and reviewed The Wife Between Us and really enjoyed it…. It is very similar to this book…. so I can’t help but compare and I’d have to say I enjoyed this book more….. and the reason for this is I adored and hated these characters so much….

Amber was the perfect girl you had to hate…. although I have to admit up until that first twist I was rooting for her a tiny bit (don’t judge…😉) then we have Daphne… I can’t even tell you how I feel about Daphne because that would ruin things, but such a well developed character my feelings for her were all over the place throughout this book (I so much want to say something right now but I can’t🤫🤭)

Ugh! I am so jealous of you who have not already read this… you have such a wonderful treat ahead of you….. so just pick this book up sit back relax and enjoy the crazy ride! And keep in mind good things come to those who wait….. Think of the beginning of this book as that huge hill you go up on a roller coaster before things start going sideways and crazy…. it isn’t necessarily the best part of the ride, but it’s necessary to get you to that place where things go wild!

PS: And for those of you who have read this already that ending! Perfection🐢

🎧🎧🎧 Duel narration done perfectly! Five stars for Suzanne Elise Freeman and Meghan Wolf…. and what was really wonderful is that you could absolutely distinguish between their voices, sometimes with multiple narrators of the same gender it is hard to do, but this was not the case with this book! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Hope you like Roller Coasters,

The Wife Between Us

The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

4.25 wild and crazy stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟.25


When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.

You will assume you are reading about a jealous ex-wife. You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement – a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love. You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle.

Assume nothing.

Twisted and deliciously chilling, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen’s The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage – and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.

Read between the lies.


Wow! This book and The Last Mrs. Parrish were remarkably similar… I thoroughly enjoyed both books, and it is impossible not to compare…. However, I think I found The Last Mrs. Parrish A little more compelling…. I will also be posting my review for that book today, finally!

Well, onto this book, where to start without giving too much away…. Vanessa is the scorned ex-wife, trying to make life hell for her replacement…. or is she? Richard is the perfect doting husband always there for his wife to lean on….. or is he? As I’m sure all my avid psychological thriller reading friends know, things are not always as they seem….

Vanessa was a very complicated character and I grew to really like her by the end of this book…. I loved how the story was told…. it started out leading you in one direction and then took a giant turn in another direction…..

The last 25% of this book was unputdownable….. it was crazy….. twist after twist after twist….. and just when I thought there could not be any more yet another twist! An absolutely wonderful surprising ending to this book!

I would absolutely recommend to all fans of psychological thrillers!

PS: at the end of The audiobook there was an interview with the authors…. I found it very interesting that they wrote this book in tandem…. rather than passing it back-and-forth like most others who collaborate on a book do…. sure hope they decide to collaborate again because this was fabulous!

🎧🎧🎧 audiobook narration 5 fabulous stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Julia Whalen is absolutely one of my all-time favorite narrators! Ever since amazing Amy…. she has held a special Space in my audiobook heart💕
