"Dr. Kate English has it all. Not only is she the heiress to a large fortune; she has a gorgeous husband and daughter, a high-flying career, and a beautiful home anyone would envy. But all that changes the night Kate's mother, Lily, is found dead, brutally murdered in her own home. Heartbroken and distraught, Kate reaches out to her estranged best friend, Blaire Barrington, who rushes to her side for the funeral, where the years of distance between them are forgotten in a moment. That evening, Kate's grief turns to horror when she receives an anonymous text: You think you're sad now, just wait. By the time I'm finished with you, you'll wish you had been buried today. More than ever, Kate needs her old friend's help. Once Blaire decides to take the investigation into her own hands, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems in Baltimore high society. As infidelity, lies, and betrayals come to light and tensions rise to a boiling point, she begins to alienate Kate's friends and relatives with her relentless, accusatory questions, as she tries to find Lily's killer. The murderer could be anyone-- friend, neighbor, loved one. But whoever it is, it's clear Kate is next on their list ..."-- Dust jacket flap.

It's nice to read a "who done it" book like this one. I had my suspicions but could not put the book down. Very good read.

I found this story tedious, it just kept going on and on. I really didn't enjoy it.

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 information about the murder. Soon after the funeral, Kate begins to receive threatening texts promising that she is next. The tension intensifies till Kate becomes paranoid and starts doubting the integrity of several people in her life. Who could have killed Lily and is the same person coming for her? Suspicions of infidelity, betrayals and dishonesty only succeed to confuse. The resolution will astonish. This is a great title for beach or cottage reading.

This one did not grip me the way "The Last Mrs. Parrish" did. I found myself bored especially in the middle. The text messages and the gifts were clearly from someone close to Kate, yet the security team and police seemed so inept. I was annoyed by their lack of initiative. They seemed always be reacting rather than trying to get ahead of the string of threats. The plot twist was average and seemed to be ill-timed. Too late, I think? I did find Blaire's storyline to be quite interesting, but Kate not so much. Anyway, this was just a bit over average.
