The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine

I was slogging through a history book that shall remain nameless when I begged book maven Jenny Riddle for the name of fun read as antidote.

The Last Mrs. Parrish, written by sisters Lynne Constantine and Valerie Constantine writing under the joint pen name Liv Constantine, was what she recommended and this page-turner was the dessert I needed after a boring bowl of lukewarm literary gruel.

A cross between The Devil Wears Prada and All About Eve, this escapist novel set in upper echelon New York introduces us to Amber Patterson, the biggest social climber ever, and to Jackson and Daphne Parrish, the wealthy “it” couple of the moment in Manhattan and environs.

But wait, we get another perspective midway through the story that will keep you turning those pages, perhaps into the wee hours.

Is this fine literary writing that one can read multiple times? Hardly, but for a thrilling ride, The Last Mrs. Parrish is the perfect accompaniment for those freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and cup of hot cocoa.
