First Chapter: The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine

Psychological thriller: The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine, October 17, 2017, HarperLuxe
The Last Mrs. Parrish 
A debut psychological thriller full of twists about a coolly manipulative woman who worms her way into the lives of a wealthy “golden couple” from Connecticut to achieve the privileged life she wants. (publisher)

First chapter:
Amber Patterson was tired of being invisible. She'd been coming in this gym every day for three months - three long months of watching these women of leisure working at the only thing they cared about. They were all self-absorbed; she would have bet her last dollar that not one of them would recognize her on the street even though she was five feet away from them every single day. She was a fixture to them - unimportant, not worthy of being noticed. But she didn't care - not about any of them. There was one reason and one reason alone that she dragged herself there every day, to this machine, at the precise stroke of eight.
