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,
