The End of Her by Shari Lapena | Review

The End of Her| Shari Lapena| Bantam PressPub: July 23, 2020| Pages: 352

I’m a fan of Shari Lapena! I’ve read all her books with the exception of Not a Happy Family, but that is my current read!

Most of her books for me fall between a 4-star and 5-star rating! This one wasn’t my favorite of hers, but it was still a really good book!

In the first couple chapters, we are introduced to multiple characters. Having not read the synopsis, I had no clue where we were going with all these characters, but soon it became evident, and Shari did a really good job at intertwining all the stories together.

A couple things that made me not adore this book is:

  • The story pace kind of tanked at one point for me. It started off great, I was very intrigued and engaged, but then from like 50% to 75% it got really dull for me as the narrative become more about a trial and the legal system and those types of books are not up my alley. Although, it did pick up near the end and I felt engrossed in the story again.
  • The ending – So many loose ends remain, and I don’t like that. I just question why we had so much character development on some of those stories, and then I have no clue what happens to them.

Having said that, it was a quick and easy read that’s pretty decent! I will definitely keep reading Shari Lapena’s books! 


It starts with a shocking accusation...

Stephanie and Patrick are recently married, with new-born twins. While Stephanie struggles with the disorienting effects of sleep deprivation, there’s one thing she knows for certain – she has everything she ever wanted.

Then a woman from his past arrives and makes a shocking accusation about his first wife. He always claimed her death was an accident – but she says it was murder.

He insists he’s innocent, that this is nothing but a blackmail attempt. But is Patrick telling the truth? Or has Stephanie made a terrible mistake?

How will it end?
