A Reese Witherspoon book club pick! Perfect for fans of B. A. Paris, Shari Lapena and Liane Moriarty How far would you go to make all your dreams come true? Amber Patterson is tired of being a nobody: an invisible woman who melts into the background. She deserves more. She deserves a life of wealth, luxury and leisure. Daphne Parrish is the golden girl of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut. With her model looks, her picture-perfect mansion and her millionaire husband, Jackson, she has everything Amber wants. Amber’s envy could eat her alive—if she didn't have a plan. Before long, she has become Daphne’s closest friend, and is catching the eye of Jackson. But a skeleton from her past could destroy everything, and if discovered, Amber’s well-laid plan may end in disaster... ‘The Last Mrs Parrish is an addictive and twisty debut’ Karin Slaughter ‘Wonderfully plausible, hypnotically compelling, and deliciously chilling and creepy – some of the best psychological suspense you’ll read this year’ Lee Child ‘It's a great reading escape.

"I’ve read a book before with a similar plot so that’s why I didn’t give it a higher rating. But over all a great plot that kept me going. Love, deception, friendship and loss are all big themes throughout the book and trigger warning about domestic violence. "
"This will have you on the edge of the seat the whole time. You won’t be able to put the book down!!"
