Spotlight/Book Giveaway: The Beauty of The End by Debbie Howells

About the Book

Genre: Psychological Thriller
Publisher: Kensington
Release Date: July 26, 2016
Synopsis from the publicist...

“I was fourteen when I fell in love with a goddess…”

So begins the testimony of Noah Calaway, an ex-lawyer with a sideline in armchair criminal
psychology. Now living an aimless life in an inherited cottage in the English countryside, Noah is
haunted by the memory of the beguiling young woman who left him at the altar sixteen years earlier.

Then one day he receives a troubling phone call. April, the woman he once loved, lies in a coma, the
victim of an apparent overdose—and the lead suspect in the brutal murder of her stepfather. Deep in
his bones, Noah believes that April is innocent. Then again, he also believed they would spend the rest
of their lives together.

While Noah searches for evidence that will clear April’s name, a teenager named Ella begins to sift
through the secrets of her own painful family history. The same age as April was when Noah first met
her, Ella harbors a revelation that could be the key to solving the murder. As the two stories converge,
there are shocking consequences when at last, the truth emerges.

Or so everyone believes…

Set in a borderland where the past casts its shadow on the present, with a time-shifting narrative that
will mesmerize and surprise, The Beauty of the End is both a masterpiece of suspense and a powerful
rumination on lost love.
