Synopsis (via GR)
The internationally bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish follows that success with an addictive novel filled with shocking twists about the aftermath of a brutal high-society murder.
Dr. Kate English has it all. Not only is she the heiress to a large fortune; she has a gorgeous husband and daughter, a high-flying career, and a beautiful home anyone would envy.
But all that changes the night Kate’s mother, Lily, is found dead, brutally murdered in her own home. Heartbroken and distraught, Kate reaches out to her estranged best friend, Blaire Barrington, who rushes to her side for the funeral, where the years of distance between them are forgotten in a moment.
That evening, Kate’s grief turns to horror when she receives an anonymous text: You think you’re sad now, just wait. By the time I’m finished with you, you’ll wish you had been buried today. More than ever, Kate needs her old friend’s help.
Once Blaire decides to take the investigation into her own hands, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems in Baltimore high society. As infidelity, lies, and betrayals come to light, and tensions rise to a boiling point, she begins to alienate Kate’s friends and relatives with her relentless, accusatory questions, as she tries to find Lily’s killer. The murderer could be anyone—friend, neighbor, loved one. But whoever it is, it’s clear that Kate is next on their list. . .
In The Last Time I Saw You, Liv Constantine takes the lightning pace of The Last Mrs. Parrish and raises the stakes, creating an exquisitely tension-filled and absorbing tale of psychological suspense in which innocent lives—and one woman’s sanity—hang in the balance.
After reading The Last Mrs. Parrish!, I knew I had to get my hands on this extraordinary writing duo’s next book, and it didn’t disappoint!
Kate mother, Lily, is brutally murdered days before Christmas. A distraught Kate reconnects with her best friend, Blaire Barrington, a famous mystery author and who Kate hasn’t seen since her wedding day since Blaire felt that the impending groom is not good for Kate and n argument ensues. Blaire, having spent much time with Kate and her family, returns for the services and the friendship rekindles.
As the synopsis states, on the day of the funeral, Kate receives the first threatening text, one of many, which now threaten Kate’s life. Blaire stays by Kate’s side and decides she is going to try and solve who killed Lily and is now threatening Kate. Is she successful?
This book was a page turner!! The list of suspects are all close to Kate but who is trying to make her appear “crazy” and who killed Lily?
The suspense started on page 1 and didn’t let up to the final page! So many twists and turns that had me reading as fast as possible to learn who dun it! It concludes with an explosive ending that I didn’t see coming!
Warning!! This is a novel that will leave you with a book hangover!!!
Chilling and thrilling throughout!!
I can’t wait for their next book! I hope it is soon!
