THE LAST MRS. PARRISH
HarperCollins – October 17, 2017
With its twisted, manipulative female protagonist, and dazzling roller-coaster twists, The Last Mrs. Parrish is a must for readers who enjoy the psychological suspense of Gillian Flynn, Shari LaPena, Mary Kubica, Jessica Knoll, Paula Hawkins, Kimberly McCreight, and Liane Moriarty.
Amber Patterson is fed up feeling like 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 Bishop’s Harbor, Connecticut, Daphne and her husband, Jackson—the beautiful philanthropist and the confident real estate mogul—are a golden couple straight out of a fairytale, blessed with two lovely young daughters.
Amber’s envy could eat her alive…if she didn’t have a plan. Determined to become the next Mrs. Parrish, 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. 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.
Praise for THE LAST MRS. PARRISH
“Liv Constantine’s The Last Mrs. Parrish is a beautifully constructed set piece, an intricate narrative that doubles back and folds in on itself like a Mobius strip, revealing secret upon secret, and layer upon layer, with a seductive ‘just one more chapter’ urgency that will keep readers up all night. Giving new meaning to the adage ‘be careful what you wish for,’ The Last Mrs. Parrish proves that the worst that can happen just might be when you get what you want. Addictive!”—Karen Dionne, author of The Marsh King’s Daughter
“The Last Mrs. Parrish is an extraordinary debut and gripping psychological thriller that is full of unexpected twists. Readers will become obsessed with these chilling characters who pull you in and refuse to let go.”—Award winning international bestseller, and Denmark’s “Queen of Crime,” Sara Blaedel
“Gillian Flynn meets Joy Fielding in Liv Constantine’s The Last Mrs. Parrish. In an age of great anti-heroines, comes the most unlikeable one yet, the coldly devilish Amber Patterson. It’s hard to decide whom to loathe more—the woman intent on getting the life she wants no matter its cost, or the man at the center of her plans. But even as you love to hate both characters, someone sneaks up from behind, a wife you’ll want to cheer, in this thriller that delivers the most satisfying ending since B.A. Paris’ smash hit Behind Closed Doors—and a victorious romp of revenge.”—Jenny Milchman, USA Today bestselling author of Cover of Snow, Ruin Falls, and As Nigh Falls.
