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

Two disappointing,frustrating,booooriiiinnnnggg stars!

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!

Suzanne Leopold (Suzy Approved Book Reviews)
Kate English is coping with the death of her mother who was recently murdered in her home. Lily’s death was a shock to her quiet Baltimore community because she was so highly regarded. A few days after her death, Kate begins to receive horrible threats against her family. Security and surveillance are brought into her home but these threats proceed to unsettle her life.

During the funeral, her childhood friend Blaire comes from New York City to comfort Kate, and their relationship is reignited.

2.5 stars. A little too much for me.

Kate and Blaire haven’t spoken in years. They used to be best friends, Kate’s wealthy family always including Blaire in their family gatherings and summer vacations. After Kate’s mother is murdered, Kate reaches out to Blaire who immediately drops everything to come back into Kate’s life to support her friend in a time of need. Blaire, now a famous author, starts her own investigation into what happened to Kate’s mother. As she digs deeper into Kate’s life, sh

Author Blaire Barrington and doctor Kate English were best friends until Kate's wedding, when Blaire and Kate fought and Blaire was replaced as Kate's maid of honor. They have nothing to do with each other until years later when Kate's mother, Lily, is brutally murdered. Kate and Blaire had been such close friends that they spent holidays and weekends together and during their last year of high school, Blaire lived with Kate's rich family.

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.

The Last Time I Saw You follows Kate England, a young doctor who is going through a separation with her (perceived) unfaithful husband. But that isn't the only thing. 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

I was super excited to read this mystery/thriller after reading the synopsis, but sadly it was just an okay read for me.

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

A dead body, a threatening text, dead animals with a child’s nursery rhyme attached, more threatening texts and packages, the return of a long-lost friend, and a confused, frightened family await the reader in THE LAST TIME I SAW YOU.

Who could have murdered lovable, charitable Lily? Why did Lily want to change her will a few days before she was murdered?

We follow heiress, Dr. Kate English, and her family as they grieve and are guarded by private investigators at their home.

I was a little late to the party with Constantine’s debut, The Last Mrs. Parrish and I had kind of put it off because it was so hyped up and I didn’t want to be underwhelmed. I ended up really liking it and was fairly certain I would like this one as well, the premise sounded good, nothing groundbreaking, but I was interested for sure. Unfortunately this one just work for me and I found myself sorely disappointed in the end. I will admit it was a weirdly fast read for me, I think I kept expectin ...more

The Last Time I Saw You is an easy to follow, fast-paced escape read that I flew through in two sittings.

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

This is one of my most anticipated reads so far this year! I have literally wanted to read this since the day I finished The Last Mrs. Parrish. I was over the moon excited to get my hands on an early copy as you can imagine.

Yet you know you should wait closer to publication date even though you can hardly stand it! Yep that ...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!!

But none of these things can protect her when her mother is found murdered in her home, and Kate seems to be next. Kate reaches out to her estranged best friend, Blaire Barrington, who rushe

The Last Time I Saw You by Liv Constantine is a psychological thriller about the dysfunction of Baltimore high society. Dr. Kate English has it all: she is a physician, wife and mother, living in a showcase home and is also the heiress to a family fortune. Tragedy strikes when her mother Lily is brutally murdered and the police haven't a clue who the perpetrator could be. Blaire Barrington, Kate's best friend in earlier years, comes to the funeral to offer her support and to help unearth informa ...more
The Last Time I Saw You, a mystery/thriller, was a solid 3.5 stars. I absolutely loved The Last Mrs. Parrish and didn’t hesitate picking this up.
The story centers around Kate and the murder of her mother. Kate is not only having a difficult time coping with the loss of her mother but after receiving threatening messages, she feels that she’s the next target on the killer’s list. Everyone in Kate’s life is a suspect in her eyes-her dad, husband, nanny and so on. There are a lot of characters in

I didn't get a chance to read Liv Constantine's debut novel The Last Mrs. Parrish, so when I got my hands on their upcoming novel The Last Time I Saw You , I knew that Chelsea and I needed to pick this for our May Scared Suspense Book Club selection (you can follow the bookclub on Instagram @scaredsuspensebookclub).

Last year I read and love The Last Mrs Parrish so when the publisher granted my wish for an advanced copy of The Last Time I Saw You I was super excited. And I am happy to say that it did not disappoint. Once I picked this book up I did not want to put it down. The story had me hook, line and sinker! The ending was clever and although I suspected who I did not pick the why or how. Brilliant! A fantastic story of friendship, betrayal and lies - what more could you want.

For such a short book, I really found this to be such a slog.
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.

More like 2.5 Stars for this one, so I'm rounding it up...

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
Renee (itsbooktalk)
This is a DNF for me at 18%. Not sure if it was the writing style or the pace but I found myself not wanting to pick it back up after I easily put it down and then not caring who killed her.

The Last Time I Saw You is a slow burn psychological thriller that has you questioning whether or not the main characters are sane or if they are losing touch with reality. After Kate’s mom is murdered she begins receiving threats, gifts, and taunts from the supposed killer. She heavily relies on Blaire, her estranged best friend and other character POV, to help her navigate this difficult time and help figure out who close to her could be the killer and stalker. I was able to guess the main cul ...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.
