The Last Mrs Parrish - A Book Review

The Last Mrs Parrish by Liv Constantine is a book about Amber, Daphne & Jackson.   It's a book where entitlement leads to manipulation and manipulation has its consequences.


The Last Mrs Parrish by Liv Constantine



I love that I've discovered a new author in Liv Constantine she (or I should say they) captures Amber's character really well and as you're reading it you so want Daphne to find out.   As the twist comes you almost want to read it again to see how one of the characters (with your fresh information) isn't actually the person you thought.

This kept me up reading late into the night even though I knew I had work the next day there was just no way I could put it up!  Amber reminded me a little of Tom Ripley and I found the duplicity of the novel absolutely delicious, I would never have known that this was a debut novel.

After reading the book I discovered that Liv Constantine was actually two sisters writing as a partnership, luckily they have written a few more books which will definitely be added to my long, must-read list.

I'll leave you with this, Amber's father really should have warned her to beware of the green-eyed monster that calls itself envy.

I read this as part of my Kindle Unlimited membership and I thoroughly recommend this if you're a voracious reader, I think of it as a library card for Amazon!

  1. You have certainly 'whet my appetite' with your brief synopsis of this book, Louann. Now I 'gotta know' how it turns out. Interesting that the author is actually two sisters. One of my favorite authors is actually a mother/daughter team. Thanks for your review.

  3. First(so I don't forget), I love my Kindle Unlimited Membership, which I subscribed to because of your previous recommendation. It really is like a library card. What an apt description! Wow! A book that can cause you to stay awake knowing you have work in the morning, must be amazing. An awesome recommendation.

  4. Sometimes, when writers team up as co-authors, their styles are so different styles that I think, “He must have written this chapter,” or “I wish there were more of her voice in this novel.” I find that quite distracting, and it detracts from my enjoyment of the book. Fortunately, it sounds as though the two “Liv Constantine” sisters have the kind of very close relationship that allows them to routinely finish each other’s sentences, so their writing combines seamlessly into a single literary voice. How delightful! Thanks for giving us just enough information about this novel to whet our appetites.

  6. Isn't it wonderful when you finish a book that was so good you want to reread it immediately?! This sounds like an interesting story. Thank you for your Kindle Unlimited recommendation. I have considered getting it as I read daily. But I read slowly. So I havent made the plunge into the membership. Good to know you (and others) find it to be worth it.
