Daphne, a socialite and philanthropist, and her real estate magnate husband, Jackson, are seen by everyone in exclusive Bishops Harbor as a couple straight out of a fairy tale.
Amber’s envy is about to eat her alive, but she has a plan. She uses Daphne’s compassion and caring to insinuate herself into the family’s life. It’s just the first step in a meticulous plan to undermine Daphne. Soon, Amber becomes Daphne’s closest confidante. She even travels to Europe with the Parrish family, growing closer to Jackson.
