The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine – Book Review

This is about Amber, making her way into the lives of Mr. & Mrs. Parrish. She entered their lives, with a well thought plan. She thought she’s going to succeed this time – but it turns out she’s not the only one who has been keeping dark secrets.

I gave it 4/5 on Goodreads. This was not really the kind of dark suspense I was looking for but I enjoyed it enough – the plot really bothered me, which is what I really love in novels. I love how the ending was presented well 🙂

I’m just not a fan of the conversations between Amber and Mrs. Parrish – I found it too. It’s like they’re always meeting each other for the first time.

The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins – Book Summary

This is a summary based on my understanding of the novel. Please also note that this summary contains spoilers. You may want to read the entire book first before proceeding

Jane is the new dog walker at Thornfield Estates, and she’s quite in demand among the wealthy community. On one of her duties, she met Eddie Rochester, one of the homeowners. Handsome, rich, and a widower. He lives alone in his house, since his late wife, Bea Rochester, died from a boating accident along with her bestfriend, Blanche.

Jane is far from being rich, and quite simple, unnoticeable, even, so it was a shock when the other housewives learned that she is dating Eddie. She became friends with Emily, who used to hire her as a dog walker. From being paid hourly, she is now hanging out with them – thanks to Eddie’s money (or Bea’s money).

The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins – Book Review

This is about a young woman who fell in love with one of the homeowners at Thornfield Estates. He fell in love with a perfect man – handsome, wealthy, generous, and caring. However, she’s about to be proven wrong when she started hearing rumors about how his ex wife went missing.

Gave it 3/5 on Goodreads. I loved the story and the plot twist, but I feel like the ending should’ve been explained further. If there were enough pages to discuss about the neighbor’s outfit and their activities – then the ending deserves a few more pages too.

The Good Sister by Sally Hepworth – Book Summary

This is a summary based on my understanding of the novel. Please also note that this summary contains spoilers. You may want to read the entire book first before proceeding

Rose & Fern Castle are fraternal twins – they are nothing alike. Rose is short, Fern is tall. Both also differ in personalities.

When they were kids, they grew up under the care of their mother, Nina, who only seemed to care about Fern. Nina also has a bad temper, so Rose made sure to protect Fern.

The Good Sister by Sally Hepworth – Book Review

It’s about 2 sisters, Fern & Rose. They are twins, but they are different in almost all ways. Both seem to care about each other, but one sister is hiding something – and got some real bad intention towards the other.

I gave this book 5/5 on Goodreads. I rarely give 5 star reviews – but this one is really good. I got lost in the book. It’s fast paced – to the point that I was surprised to find that I am already on the last few pages. I shed a tear on this book. This will be one of my favorite reads this year – even though this one is the first book I’ve read this year!

What I liked about it:

Easy to read. It was such a short read for me, probably because I expected the novel to get more complicated. However, it is good that this was such an easy read – minimal characters, uncomplicated way of narration.
Plot. The plot will make me look forward to how the book will end. Since the story revolves around the wife, saving herself from her husband – wanting to know if they’d get held made me hang on to the story.

When Scarlett was about to get married, she sent one last letter to Legend, and at that time, she got a reply and an invitation. Scarlett, Tella, and Julian (the sailor) went to Caraval, Tella was kidnapped by Legend, and it turns out that the game revolves around Tella. The first player that finds Tella wins and can get a wish as a reward.

The two of them played the game, looking for clues and helping each other. They have been warned that most parts of the game are not genuine. However, they were still fearful (they even got hurt) when they saw Scarlett’s father and fiancée. They are the person Tella and Scarlett are running away from, but they follow them to Caraval, and they want to take the siblings home, to punish them.
