I read this book at the beginning of the year and I devoured this book within two days because I couldn’t put this book down. I loved this book and the ending was so satisfying that I couldn’t stop thinking about for days after I read it. This book is written in two parts, the first part is written from the point of Amber and the second part is written form the point of Daphne. The story is filled with so many secrets and every turn you find out more and more details that continue to hook you into the story. Plus, this book is a perfect summer read, I mean just look at that cover. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. If you haven’t read this book than I urge you to go out and buy it or check it out at your local library.
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.
I was so happy to receive this book from Harper Books before it was published. I loved Liv Constantine’s first book The Last Mrs. Parrish, so I couldn’t wait to read another book by her (them really, since the books are co-authored by sisters who write under the name Liv Constantine). I dove right into this book with out skipping a beat. It had a lot of twist and turns. I was continuously questioning different characters and their roles in the story. While I enjoyed this book, it didn’t compare to The Last Mrs. Parrish. The ending was very interesting and I definitely wouldn’t have guessed it, but I felt as though it was a little extreme. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️. It had a quick pace held throughout, but the ending had me wishing it had turned out differently.
Dr. Kate English has it all. Not only is she the heiress to a large fortune; she has a gorgeous husband and daughter, a high-flying career, and a beautiful home anyone would envy. That evening, Kate’s grief turns to horror when she receives an anonymous text: You think you’re sad now, just wait. By the time I’m finished with you, you’ll wish you had been buried today. More than ever, Kate needs her old friend’s help. Once Blaire decides to take the investigation into her own hands, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems in Baltimore high society. As infidelity, lies, and betrayals come to light, and tensions rise to a boiling point, she begins to alienate Kate’s friends and relatives with her relentless, accusatory questions, as she tries to find Lily’s killer. The murderer could be anyone—friend, neighbor, loved one. But whoever it is, it’s clear that Kate is next on their list. . .
