The Last Mrs. Parrish (Liv Constantine)

Novels featuring two women and one man have been done to death, but none quite in the same way as Liv Constantine's The Last Mrs. Parrish. Some have said there is a similarity between this and the stellar The Wife Between Us. While I can definitely see where there would be a comparison, the fact of the matter is that they are both highly original and utterly addictive.

Amber Patterson wants a new life and sets her sights on getting the gorgeous and rich Jackson Parrish away from his current wife, Daphne. Jackson and Daphne seem to have it all -- a spectacular house on the water, two beautiful children, and everything money can buy. Amber wants Jackson and the life he can provide and will do anything to get her way. 

But, of course, all is not what it seems. While the first part of the book focuses on Amber's scheming, the second part goes into Daphne's life. This part is so much better than the first, with each page revealing more secrets and twists that had me gasping. That's really all I can say without giving too much away. Just know that if you think you know where The Last Mrs. Parrish is going, you probably don't.
