I picked this book up last night and I could not put it down. I continued this morning and didn’t look up again until I was done. This book was really good. It was an addictive story and really fast paced. I don’t think I would call this a psychological thriller though.
Basically, this story is about Amber envying the 1% and thinking it’s unfair that they live such a high life, while she does not. You never really know what the grass is like on the other side. Is it really green? or is it just decaying and brown? Be careful what you wish for! Amber thinks that Daphne and Jackson Parrish are living the perfect life. They are part of the 1%, have the perfect marriage, house, kids and so on. What she doesn’t know, things are never really perfect. So, she hatches a plan to slowly become part of the family, in hopes to take over, as the last Mrs. Parrish.
The first 1/3 of the book is in Amber’s perspective and the last 1/3 is in Daphne’s perspective. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about re-hashing the story over in the second POV. Sometimes this can get quite boring but it was not the case. It was actually perfect to make the whole picture crystal clear.
WOW. Amber is diabolical. I didn’t root for her from the very beginning. She was so good at being fake and evil. I was rooting so hard for Daphne. Then when I realized what was going to happen, I was rooting for Daphne even more. The ending was great and I really think that everyone got what they deserved.
