The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine

I have been wanting to read this book for so long. I kept letting my addiction to NetGalley get in the way. Well not today NetGalley, not today! I finally got to see what the hype was about. I loved this book! It has sat on my TBR pile for way too long.

Daphne Parrish has it all. She has a loving handsome husband and two perfect little girls. They live in a much envied zip code and belong to all the right clubs. She is cultured and surrounds herself with only the most posh group of friends, that all of course live in Bishops Harbor.

Amber Patterson is new to town. Amber does not travel in the same circles that Daphne does. In fact they have nothing in common. Except that they both lost their sister to cystic fibrosis.  So when they became best friends it caught people off guard. There were alot of suspicions raised about this outsider that had little to her name. The outsider that Daphne had let into her inner circle. Allowing her access to her home, family and lifestyle. Daphne sees Amber as the sister she has lost and confides in her very personal details. Are Amber's intentions legit?

Wow this was a book I just couldn't put down.  It has a little bit of everything, glass turtles and all. It is rather hard to explain because it wasn't a sit on the edge of your seat, who is going to die next type of book. Yet there was something really appealing to it. I really got wrapped up into the characters lives, wanting to know what they were up to next. Who was playing who? There was so much back stabbing and deceit going on. A very clever little web of lies being spun.  My favorite line of the book was "She was going to get a life sentence right here in Connecticut." I love it! Witty characters and a really fun read. I highly recommend it.

4 stars from me!
