THIS IS NOT HOW IT ENDS by Rochelle B. Weinstein – Spotlight & Giveaway


A love story that will break your heart and put it back together again.

Author Rochelle Weinstein has become known for her heart-felt topical family dramas … with some comedy added, too. Her sixth novel, THE IS NOT HOW IT ENDS (LakeUnionPublishing) does not disappoint. Here’s a sneak peak into a novel that won’t be published until January. Read and enjoy!

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 yet to make, Charlotte embarks on an emotional journey of friendship, love, and sacrifice—knowing forgiveness is a gift, and the best laid plans can change in a heartbeat.

I was born and raised in Miami, Florida among the chaos of three siblings: Randi, Robert, and Ron. After graduating from the University of Maryland, I moved west to Los Angeles. There I launched my career at the LA Weekly, handling advertising and promotions for film studios and record labels.

After a colorful few years, I returned to Miami as an Account Executive at the acclaimed Beber Silverstein & Partners. Later that same year, I landed my first dream job through an ad in The Miami Herald. Yes, an actual newspaper. For the next ten years, I managed the advertising, marketing, and promotions for every record label in the country at The Box Music Network. Ensconced on South Beach, our offices were the hub for musicians and record executives worldwide. Work consisted of meeting talented superstars and listening to great music. Fun, right?

Marriage and kids soon followed in the form of dream job number two, and The Box eventually moved to New York. Sometime in between raising the twins, PTA meetings, carpool, flag football, basketball, and lacrosse tournaments, writing freelance, cheering on the Dolphins and Heat, and volunteering at organizations near and dear to my heart, dream job number three took root, and I became a full-time writer.

Life has a funny way of happening this way. Doors open and close. Avenues await. One path leads to another. I thought life was fun before, but nothing is more fun than this.

THIS IS NOT HOW IT ENDS will be published January 1st. Now is the time to pre-order your copy at your favorite bookstore.

  19. I am currently reading,, and enjoying, Lady Clementine, by Marie Benedict. I have learned so much from her previous novels, and this one is no exception. Lady Clementine becomes the wife of Winston Churchill. He may have been a man of great power, but she was a force to be reckoned with, admired, and respected. A truly strong woman of historical significance.
    Highly recommend. iofrespChurchill
