From USA Today bestselling author Rochelle B. Weinstein comes a moving novel of hearts lost and found, and of one woman torn between two love stories.

When Charlotte and Philip meet, the pair form a deep and instant connection. Soon they’re settled in the Florida Keys with plans to marry. But just as they should be getting closer, Charlotte feels Philip slipping away.

Second-guessing their love is something Charlotte never imagined, but with Philip’s excessive absences, she finds herself yearning for more. When she meets Ben, she ignores the pull, but the supportive single dad is there for her in ways she never knew she desired. Soon Charlotte finds herself torn between the love she thought she wanted and the one she knows she needs.

As a hurricane passes through Islamorada, stunning revelations challenge Charlotte’s loyalties and upend her life. Forced to reexamine the choices she’s made, and has yet to make, Charlotte embarks on an emotional journey of friendship, love, and sacrifice—knowing that forgiveness is a gift, and the best-laid plans can change in a heartbeat.

This Is Not How It Ends is a tender, moving story of heartbreak and healing that asks the question: Which takes more courage—holding on or letting go?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
My Thoughts
Wow! What a fantastically written novel! I will be honest and let you in on a secret with me. I didn’t know if I would love this one or not. The story premise just sounded full of pain and heartache. But, this is a new to me author and I love reaching outside of my comfort zone with reading. I was so happy I gave this novel a chance!
Charlotte’s story was beautifully written. The pain, the guilt, the emotions that she went through, truly resonated with me in a way I can’t describe. I felt as if I was in the story and it was written just for me. That’s an incredible feeling! The setting is vividly portrayed and comes to life with each page turn.
Weinstein has captured me as a fan. She has a skilled writing style. Her ability to draw the reader in from page one is magnificent. Her ability to take raw, emotional, deep situations in life and create a page turning novel from it is fantastic. This is definitely a 4 star worthy novel and I am looking forward to sharing it with others. Just be warned! You will absolutely need Kleenex when reading!
