Description

THE DECEMBER PICK FOR REESE WITHERSPOON'S HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB

"Filled with envy, deception, and power, it’s a great reading escape. And there is a thrilling twist at the end!!" —Reese Witherspoon

“Will keep you up. In a ‘can’t put it down’ way. It’s ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’ with XX chromosomes.”—The Skimm

“Deliciously duplicitous. . . . equally as twisty, spellbinding, and addictive as Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl or Paula Hawkins’s The Girl on the Train.”—Library Journal (starred review)

Some women get everything. Some women get everything they deserve.

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. 

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.

Reviews

  • Predictable “Behind Mansion Walls” story

    2
    By Amigo73
    A jealous con artist wants a piece of the pie only to end up with egg on her face in a rather unoriginal story of greed and domestic violence. In places the plot got very bogged down in example after example of abuse. Other times the judgement of the have-not of the haves just got trite and boring. I had to do a great deal of skimming.
  • How many books can tell the same story?

    1
    By DD999
    Why does every book today have the same theme? The insanely rich, handsome and successful entrepreneur who, underneath it all, is a raging narcissist. Fifty Shades, Behind Closed Doors, and now this? There have to be authors out there that can come up other substance for fiction. This book was from start to finish, entirely predictable. Save your money, and skip this read. Also find it disappointing that this was a Reece Witherspoon pick. Guess I won’t be holding her opinion on books in high regard anymore. Lame...
  • No comparison to Gone Girl

    Not sure which reviewer compared this sophomorically written book to Gone Girl but this is a far cry...The characters are just not interesting or believable. I gave it two stars because I had to finish it to make sure of the comeuppance. You be the judge. My money has already been spent.
  • Great book

    This was a great book that I didn’t want to stop reading.
  • Good, but not great

    The plot is decent, but the prose suffers. At first, I almost put the book down because it seemed so choppy and elementary. But, I pushed through as the circumstances peaked my interest, and I suppose I just got used to the authors' word rythyms. Then, I had to finish to see how everything turned out, and I have to say I did not feel cheated!

    Excellent read! Just when I thought the first half had me, along comes Daphne’s part and really pulled me in! Very entertaining! Will definitely be reading more from these sisters!
  • Boring and predictable

    How can this book get the attention it has? What a contrived and predictable story line. Ugh, just awful.
  • The twist keeps the pages turning

    I picked up this book because I saw Reese Withspoon approved and the 1920’s font pulled me in. I was hungry for another take on Big Little Lies and The Last Parish does NOT dissappoint. You want rich ladies and drama with hot husbands CHECK! I’m sure somewhere in Hollywood right now there’s a room filled with executives and this book is being passed around. Read it before it becomes an HBO mini series.
  • Good concept poorly executed

    1
    By Renzosgirl
    Take the concept behind Gone Girl and re-write it in the inner monologue of a teenage mean girl and you get this egregiously poorly written psychological snoozer. All plot points are predictable and all characters two dimensional and lacking any appealing qualities, even the "good" ones. Don't waste your money. Reese Witherspoon steered you wrong.
  • Ugh. The worst

    By meltruelove
    Everyone in this book is the worst of the worst and there is no moral to the story or overcoming that makes it better. It’s basically as poorly written as 50 Shades of Grey, but less about sex and more about how wealth, money and privilege make men horrible controlling rapist narcissists that are hard to escape from. Oh, and then the woman that grows up impoverished is basically just as bad. I only read this because I purchased it. And I’ve come to realize that I’m less than impressed with every book Reese Witherspoon’s book club recommends. Junk reads.
