Finally Friday - Book Review - The Last Mrs. Parrish

 Greetings on a Friday with a very trashy, no brainer fun read.  The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine proved quite entertaining and did surprise me.  That's a positive. 

 Back cover blurb - Amber Patterson is fed up. She's tired of being a nobody...She deserves more - of life of money and power like the one blond-haired, blue eyed goddess Daphne Parrish takes for granted. 

This is a story of a very conniving con-woman who has set her sights on the handsome, very rich Jackson Parrish. Amber's transformation is amazing. The New York life is incredible. 

Yet - if it is too good to be true, it usually is.  (and yes, that's the moral of this story)

I will not blow any more of this plot line. But it's always fun to read about the life of the rich. Who wouldn't want the amazing house, wardrobe, etc.  BUT, be careful what you wish for - life behind closed doors can be controlling and creepy. 

Midway through this book, I had a wave of sadness - like - "really, this is sad and pathetic." I thought about stopping my read. I almost felt guilty - like... it's terrible that a woman feels the need  to do this..and this...and this...

But - unfortunately, while fiction, this is based on real folks no doubt - young ladies preying on rich dudes and families and stealing a "life".  So comeuppance is a real thing and well deserved. 

I won't blow the total plot line, but let's just say I was very satisfied with this book - The Last Mrs. Parrish is worthy of a summer beach read - I just read it in the spring. 

Happy Weekend Y'all.
