    Ellie Holmgen knows that Teo's suspicions are correct because her sister Alice confessed to her that she murdered her abusive spouse. Even though Teo is off the force, he puts the two suspects under surveillance but before to long he realizes he's more interested in Ellie than solving a crime. Both Teo and Ellie have a lot to resolve, separately and together if they want to make a life together.

    THE END OF MARRIAGE is a serio-comic dark romance and unusual kind of mystery all wrapped up in one delicious nove. Although there is a murder committed in this tale, the focus is on families and it strains and secrets. Nina Vida has written a very creative and enjoyable novel that will appeal to mainstream and genre fans.
