Please…don’t shoot the messenger! Waaaaaaah! I loved the Constantine’s THE LAST MRS. PARRISH and couldn’t wait to read their newest offering. THE LAST MRS. PARRISH is campy, delicious fun with two ultra-devious women trying to out maneuver each other for the affections of Mr. Parrish.
THE LAST TIME I SAW YOU consists of this:
First 1/3: Slow, yet confusing- why so many characters?
Second 1/3 : Repetitive, boring. Kate, our main character, is repeatedly “haunted” by scary texts from her mot ...more
As soon as I found out Last Mrs. Parrish’s author wrote a new mystery, I got excited and could not wait to start it. But after a few pages, I still got lost! There was too much drama about rich people’s lives, too many nonsense characters and our main character Kate got spooky text messages over and over like a never ending nightmare or dejavu. I thought I’m watching one episode of Young and Restless instead of reading a thriller!
So I left t ...more

Many thanks to Harper for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review
This book really f*cked up my psyche.
I truly can't remember the last time a book gave me chills as this one did.

Her mother, Lilly, has just been brutally murdered and the murderer has disappeared without a trace. Now, Kate must not only grieve but also try ...more
The beginning and the set-up of the premise was intriguing and the pace was was working until it didn't. I was hoping for more character development with more interesting characters. The protagonist became annoying with too much over the top reactions to the ongoing situations.
There really was too much repetitiveness and too many suspects to really add to the overall conclusio ...more

Lindsay my reading sister and I read this one with a group of our IG friends and also with a few of our Traveling sisters it made for such an entertaining and fun discussion.
The Last Time I Saw You is an easy to follow, fast-paced escape read that I flew through in two sittings. The unreliable characters along with the twists and turns had me pointing my finger at a few suspects here in this whodunnit mystery. I enjoyed chatting with our friends as we discussed who picked up on those l ...more
Well, I didn't have quite the same good reading experience with this one as I did with The Last Mrs. Parrish. I think I would have enjoyed this one more as a novella rather than full- length book because the longer the story dragged on, the less I cared if something bad happened to the main character.
Dr. Kate English is devastated when she finds out her mother Lily was brutally murdered. Even though Kate has been estranged from her childhood friend Blaire for years, she still reaches o ...more
I really enjoyed The Last Mrs. Parrish so I went into The Last Time I Saw You by Liv Constantine expecting to enjoy it as well, and lucky for me, I did!!

This was my first introduction to the writing sisters of Liv and Valerie Constantine, what a huge disappointment!
The opening was pretty strong as the reader is immediately introduced to the murder of Kate's mother Lily.
What a hook!
We also learn that Kate and Blaire had a massive falling out, though Kate's former best friend immediately answers Kates call of comfort.
As the book title suggests the complex dispute between the pair is teas ...more
The Last Mrs. Parrish was a 4 star read for me, and I loved it: I remember thinking the writing style of Liv Constantine was smart, sexy, sleek, and binge-worthy and was hoping their sophomore novel The Last Time I Saw You would live up their first. Sadly, not for me at least...
The opening started out with that same fast-paced, binge-worthiness as Mrs. Parrish then things begin to fall flat not long after. I felt like I was in the middle ...more
I enjoyed Liv Constantine's The Last Mrs. Parrish, so I was very excited to get my hands on The Last Time I Saw You. This book still has the drama like The Last Mrs. Parrish, but in a different way that I didn't love.
I liked the first half of the book. It had my attention, and I was interested in seeing where it would go. After a w ...more
