The Last Mrs. Parrish 

  • Author: Liv Constantine
  • Read if you like: mystery, high society, suspense, romance.
  • I am currently reading this novel and can’t seem to put it down. Main character Amber Patterson moves to an exclusive part of Connecticut with a goal in mind, and won’t stop until she gets what she wants. Born in a poor family, fighting for what little she had, Amber has her eyes set on the luxe life of Daphne Parrish and more importantly, Daphne’s husband Jackson. Although I haven’t quite made it to the end yet I’ve been assured the story only continues it’s mysterious and manipulative twists and turns until the very last page.

  • Read if you like: mythology, ancient Greek culture, heroes and villains 
  • The youngest in the family of Helios, Circe knew from birth that she was destined for something great.
