Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that shines a spotlight on the books we can’t wait to be released in the near future.
Today I would like to share the synopsis for The End of Her by Shari Lapena. After enjoying her previous novel Someone We Know, I am very eager to read more from this author.
To be released: July 28, 2020
The new domestic suspense novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door and Someone We Know
In upstate New York, Stephanie and Patrick are adjusting to life with their colicky twin babies. The girls are a handful, but Stephanie doesn’t mind being a stay-at-home mom, taking care of them while Patrick does the nine to five to pay the bills.
When a woman from Patrick’s past drops in on them unexpectedly, raising questions about his late first wife, Stephanie supports her husband wholeheartedly. She knows the car accident all those many years ago was just that–an accident. But Erica is persistent, and now she’s threatening to go to the police.
Patrick is afraid his job–and his reputation–will be at risk if he doesn’t put an end to Erica’s questioning immediately. And when the police start digging, Stephanie’s trust in her husband begins to falter and Patrick is primed to lose everything he loves. As their marriage crumbles, Stephanie feels herself coming unglued, and soon she isn’t sure what–or who–to believe. Now the most important thing is to protect her girls, but at what cost?Source: Goodreads
