The Last Mrs Parrish – Liv Constantine

Daphne has the perfect life. Married to the wealthy Jackson Parrish, she has everything she could possibly want: a beautiful house, staff to cater to her every whim, and a wardrobe full of designer clothes. When she meets Amber, she decides to take the younger girl under her wing, and Amber starts to become a substitute for the sister that Daphne lost.

But all is not quite as it seems to Daphne. In fact, she has been targeted by Amber, who believes she is more deserving of the luxury lifestyle. Can Amber infiltrate Daphne’s life enough to steal Jackson and his wealth from her? Or will Amber’s past catch up with her and ruin her plans?

This book is split into three sections; first from Amber’s viewpoint, then Daphne’s, with the third used to tie everything up. I enjoyed Amber’s section very much, as this laid the groundwork for everything that was to come. Once I got to Daphne’s section, I originally found that the story slowed down quite a lot, and it was hard for me to keep reading. A lot of this section was also quite repetitive. The final section did tie things up, but it all felt a bit thrown together.

There were a few inconsistencies throughout the story, and I wonder if this is a result of having two writers. A slightly better edit might have saved them here.
