Book Club: The End of Her by Shari Lapena

The end of her

Henpicked’s book of the month for November 2021…

The end of herThank you so much to everyone who has joined in the discussion about Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin.

If you haven’t shared your thoughts yet, please do join in the conversation at the bottom of the article on Disqus. What did you think of it? Would you recommend it to a friend? We know some of us haven’t finished yet but we’d still like to hear from you.

For this month we’ve chosen The End of Her by Shari Lapena.

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 horrifying allegation 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?

Here are the reviews for The End of Her:

‘One neighbourhood, four couples, an amateur burglar and one dead body – this is a masterful whodunnit, perfectly paced and expertly plotted, that had me guessing all the way through.’ C. L. Taylor

‘Shari Lapena is one of the best thriller writers in the business.’ Steve Cavanagh, bestselling author of THIRTEEN

‘The End of Her is a slippery eel of a novel – just when you think you have it in your grasp, it slithers away on a new current. I consumed it in a day… unputdownable.’ Louise Candlish

‘Shari Lapena just gets better and better.’ Cara Hunter
