Conversation with Liv Constantine | The Next Mrs. Parrish

Conversation with Liv Constantine | The Next Mrs. Parrish

Online & In-Person


Join us in the library or online for a conversation with Liv Constantine (pen name for Lynne Constantine and Valerie Constantine), the co-authors of The Next Mrs. Parrish, the sequel to the million-copy internationally bestselling debut novel and Reese’s Book Club pick, The Last Mrs. Parrish. Joining the authors in conversation is award-winning author Ron Malfi.

Amber Patterson Parrish has come a long way from being an invisible wallflower. Her hard work and immaculate planning have paid off now that she’s a prominent socialite, but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been bumps along the way. Less than a year since her husband Jackson’s tax-evasion scandal, Amber is still at the top of the Bishops Harbor community pecking order, free to do as she wishes while Jackson sits in prison. But that freedom is quickly coming to an end. With Jackson getting released from prison, Amber’s time—and money—is vanishing.

Meanwhile, Daphne Parrish left Bishops Harbor after her divorce from Jackson Parrish, swearing she would never go back. But when one of her daughters runs away from home, desperate to see her father, Daphne agrees to return for the summer to allow him supervised visits. Once out of prison, Jackson swears he’s a changed man, but Daphne knows all too well that he can’t be trusted. When a ghost from Amber’s past emerges looking for revenge, the three of them find unlikely allies in one another, but who is playing who? When all is said and done, they’ll have to fight tooth and nail for everything they have left in this zero-sum game.

Liv Constantine is the pen name of sisters Lynne Constantine and Valerie Constantine.
