"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."--provided by publisher.

Very twisted & clever. Up until the final chapters, I would have rated it far lower, but the final twist was so satisfying that it earned those extra stars. All I can say is be patient & get to the 2nd part.

I wouldn't call this a psychological thriller-more like a Harlequin romance.

This book was okay, very superficial chick lit and very predictable like a few of the reviews have said. I'm not sure why it's so highly rated. It's a quick beach read but there's not much depth in the characters, plot and very drawn out. I'm a bit surprised this was recommended on the Hello Sunshine book club as most of the books are usually really good

Absolutely fantastic read! Thoroughly enjoyed this book and goes to show that karma can really come back to bite you!

This thrilling book was a rollercoaster full of twists and turns. The book tells the story of Amber Patterson, who lives a lie in order to achieve her goal. What she wants? Status, power, and money. She soon finds out that appearances can be deceiving, and things are not always what they seem.

The complicated and backstabbing relationship between two smart women will have you hooked. If you enjoy reading exciting books full of plot twists and betrayal, this is the one for you. Through the devilish schemes, the jaw-dropping surprises, and the behind-the-scenes romances, you will never put this book down.

This is one of my favorite books, and I would recommend it to readers who enjoy captivating and eerily exciting novels. -Olivia, Grade 10

This book I thought was a great, though somewhat predictable read, did go by fast and a lovely twist. The husband is a bit much to take near the end, but great vacay read.

Such a fun mystery. I did call it, but not the details of the savagery. What an imagination these authors have.

No way is this book a thriller!! It is a lame attempt at most. The protagonist is a gold-digger who plans to take over a rich woman's husband and life. Poorly written and boring. None of the characters pulled you in. I am still scratching my head over the glowing reviews!! It's superficial chick lit and not even close to being suspenseful....a slight twist at the end but It just did not impress me at all. If you enjoy exceptional writing and actual thrillers, then do not waste your time with this drivel.
