First I loved this story and narration.
We follow Amber, who is tired of her boring life. She wants a glam life, and is far from it.
She befriends the most popular women in Bishops Harbor, Daphne Parrish.
Daphne is everything Amber is not. A mother, rich, sophisticated, wealthy, popular and loved by all.
After these two meet, the naive Daphne becomes close with Amber. Shortly after becoming best pals, Amber is considered a part of the family.
Amber then starts getting close with Daphne's husband, Jackson, and their children.
From the moment the two women meet, their life begins to spiral out of control. Soon the whole Parrish family is twisted in lies, and manipulation.
At first I was beyond annoyed at how naive Daphne was, but she is smarter than what you may think.
I honestly did NOT see the twist coming in this book.
It was a great story, that kept me hooked. I listened in the car, at work, doing house chores etc.
I love when a book grabs me, and this one did. I ended up finishing this book in a day and a half , and was sad when it was over.

The narration makes this weak book nearly unbearable. The story is predictable and the writing is cliche.

Ugh...I have no idea why people are recommending this book. I found it predictable, obvious, and written at such a rudimentary level. Characters were one-dimensional and the story felt like a bad soap opera plot.This book is basic at best.

Probably the best book I’ve listened to this year! So well written.
We certainly don’t know what goes on behind the doors of the pampered and rich. I don’t think I’ll ever assume again that someone else’s life must be all roses just because they are rich and good looking. Definitely worth your time to listen to this.

The narrator is as bad as the cliche riddled plot. This book starts out bad and gets worse. I pulled the plug after 50 minutes. Do not buy this book!

It was okay, I guess. I'm not sure why this book got such high ratings when there are better ones of this genre out there. The story dragged on unnecessarily at parts and some of the dialogue fell short of being believable. I didn't like Amber's narrator, but Daphne's wasn't too bad. All in all, this audiobook was merely "okay." I could get through it. Wouldn't recommend but wouldn't warn people away from it.
