Eight crime novels of women starting over

Jennifer Hillier's new novel is Jar of Hearts. At CrimeReads she tagged eight psychological thrillers of women starting over, including:
The Last Mrs. Parrish, Liv Constantine

The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine tackles this topic, too, but from the other side. If you’ve ever been “the third party” in someone’s relationship, you might feel guilty pangs of familiarity while reading this novel about Amber, who covertly goes after her new friend Daphne’s husband by transforming herself into someone he’s convinced is better for him. However, Daphne isn’t the clueless wife Amber assumes she is, and the ending is satisfying in all the ways these real-life situations never are.
