Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis: Inspired by Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca, a spellbindingly suspenseful novel set in the moneyed world of the Hamptons, about secrets that refuse to remain buried and consequences that can’t be escaped

After a whirlwind romance, a young woman returns to the opulent, secluded Long Island mansion of her new fiancé Max Winter—a wealthy politician and recent widower—and a life of luxury she’s never known. But all is not as it appears at the Asherley estate. The house is steeped in the memory of Max’s beautiful first wife Rebekah, who haunts the young woman’s imagination and feeds her uncertainties, while his very alive teenage daughter Dani makes her life a living hell. She soon realizes there is no clear place for her in this twisted little family: Max and Dani circle each other like cats, a dynamic that both repels and fascinates her, and he harbors political ambitions with which he will allow no woman—alive or dead—to interfere.

As the soon-to-be second Mrs. Winter grows more in love with Max, and more afraid of Dani, she is drawn deeper into the family’s dark secrets—the kind of secrets that could kill her, too. The Winters is a riveting story about what happens when a family’s ghosts resurface and threaten to upend everything.

My Review: Starting off by saying the cover of this novel is BEAUTIFUL!

Judge this book by it’s cover, and you’re in for an amazing READ!

The Winters is a modern retelling of the novel ‘Rebecca’ written by Dauphne DuMaurier. The narrator of this novel, an unnamed woman who is swept up by a promising gentleman, her new fiancé, recently widowed, Max Winter, and moves her into his home, whom he shares with his teenage daughter, Dani. Now our unnamed protagonist is trying to adjust to a life of leisure and privilege, unlike what she’s used to, and slip into the stepmom role to Dani, who still mourns the death of her mother, the beautifully described wife and mom Rebekah, is said to have died in a car crash, but is there more the the story than the Winters let on?

The soon to be Mrs. Winters, is on a mission to find out the truth.. 

This novel will keep you guessing at every turn of the page, so beautifully written, extremely thought out story line, and characters. Worthwhile read for those looking for a good mystery suspense novel!
