Publisher's Summary

An instant New York Times best seller!

The End of Her will keep you guessing right up to the end...once you pick it up, you will not want to put down." (USA Today)

The new domestic suspense novel from the New York Times best-selling author of The Couple Next Door and Someone We Know

A long-ago accident - and a visitor from out of the blue....

Stephanie and Patrick are adjusting to life with their colicky twin girls. The babies are a handful, but even as Stephanie struggles with the disorientation of sleep deprivation, there's one thing she's sure of: She has all she ever wanted.

Then Erica, a woman from Patrick's past, appears and makes a disturbing accusation. Patrick had always said his first wife's death was an accident, but now Erica claims it was murder.

Patrick insists he's innocent, that this is nothing but a blackmail attempt. Still, Erica knows things about Patrick - things that make Stephanie begin to question her husband. Stephanie isn't sure what, or who, to believe. As Stephanie's trust in Patrick begins to falter, Patrick stands to lose everything. Is Patrick telling the truth - is Erica the persuasive liar Patrick says she is? Or has Stephanie made a terrible mistake?

How will it end?

The End Couldn't Come Soon Enough

A sophomoric attempt at a page-turner-- Instead, I just wanted to turn it off. Wooden, two dimensional characters; too many contrived sub-plots; and babies that only existed as a prop with no real human presence were big turn-offs. I'm glad I stuck it out to the end though, to see a completely ridiculous character turn-around, and another character exit the story with barely a thought-- No thank you!

Tedious, predictable.

I was so excited to listen to this book as I’ve enjoyed All of Shari Lapena’s other works. I was sadly disappointed though. The story was tedious and predictable. Not worth it in my opinion.

Could not have cared less

You know a book is boring when you have to rewind to listen to chapters over again because you’re sure you must’ve missed some thing because the story makes no sense And is so boring. I had to do that three times with this book. Not worth it. A definite pass. Total disappointment.

Not good

I really want to like this author and I've enjoyed a couple others by her. This, however, was awful. Long, boring, repetitive, and I hardly ever say this, but a waste of time and money. Try Someone We Know by her instead

Repetitious

The basic story was interesting, although predictable. However, I almost gave up on it after reading page, after page, after page of how tired the main character was! How many times do we have to hear she isn’t sleeping because her babies have colic! And that’s her excuse for everything! Then there’s the part about safe deposit boxes, unrealistic, and impossible!

Male voice 👎

HATED the male voice throughout the book. It made it difficult to listen all the way through.
