The End of Her is a book I read because it was suggested in a local book club I’m in.
I love psychological thrillers… and this is one of those books that keeps you guessing till the end. It has a fast pace, a first wife’s death, a current wife, and a lot of unanswered questions.
There are lots of great characters that keep you guessing who’s good and who’s bad? Who’s telling the truth and who’s lying? It’s nonstop page-turning!
The End of Her by Shari Lapena Book Summary and Review
The End of Her Book Summary
The babies are a handful, but even as Stephanie struggles with the disorientation of sleep deprivation as a stay-at-home mom, there’s one thing she’s sure of: she has all she ever wanted. That’s the important thing.
Then Erica Voss, a woman from Patrick’s past, appears and makes a disturbing accusation about her best friend from upstate New York.
Patrick had always said his first wife’s death was due to a car accident, but now Erica claims it was murder.
Patrick insists he’s innocent, that this is nothing but a blackmail attempt.
My Book Review for The End of Her
I read this book fast. Like, in two days fast.
It’s one of those books that make you want to keep on reading to finally see what secrets the married couple and a young woman are hiding. From when the police start digging to find out more about the tragic accident that took the life of a late first wife, it’s a true pageturner.
The main character is the husband Patrick – and you find yourself rooting for the young couple… at first. It’s an American dream story with a young mother who won me over in the end.
The different sides and points of view throughout the main storyline did throw me for a loop. Then, at the very end, you’re still left with questions. Well, one big question… Who is the killer?
You’d love this book if you want to sit on the edge of your seat and go along a literary ride asking yourself, “who did it?” even after the book ends.
If you like domestic thrillers with a big twist, this one is for you!
Now, I want to read her other bestseller by Pamela Dorman Books, The Couple Next Door.
