Doubting their love is something Charlotte never imagined, but with Philip’s so many absences, she finds herself longing for more. When she meets Ben, she ignores the manipulation, but her single father supports her in ways she never knew she wanted. Soon Charlotte finds herself torn between the love she thinks she wants and the one she knows she needs.

As a storm passes through Islamorada, shocking revelations test Charlotte’s loyalties and turn her life upside down. Forced to reconsider the choices she has made and has yet to make, Charlotte embarks on an emotional journey of friendship, love and sacrifice – knowing that forgiveness is a gift. Gifts and the best plans can change in an instant.

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

This Is Not How It Ends opens with Charlotte taking her beloved dog Sunny for a morning walk in beautiful Islamorada, Florida. Charlotte’s first-person narrative begins: “I’ve heard that life is about choices. Roads stretch out before us — sometimes, we make conscious decisions and other times otherwise, fate intervenes and chooses for us.” Indeed, Weinstein effectively illustrated that if Charlotte had taken a different path that morning, her life might have turned out completely differently. Instead, she runs into a boy who asks if he can pet Sunny and suddenly has a medical emergency. When his father panicked and froze to death, Charlotte stabbed an EpiPen into Jimmy’s thigh and saved his life. Ironically, Charlotte is hired by a local doctor who has had success using unconventional methods to treat allergies, and Jimmy becomes a patient.
