A NovelBook - 2018
"A spellbindingly suspenseful new novel set in the moneyed world of the Hamptons, about secrets that refuse to remain buried and consequences that cannot be escaped. After a whirlwind romance, a young woman returns to Asherley, the opulent, secluded Long Island mansion of her new fiancé, Max Winter, a wealthy senator 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, Rebecca, 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 Max harbours 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. A vivid reimagining of Daphne du Maurier's trailblazing gothic classic Rebecca with a modern twist, The Winters is a page-turning story about what happens when a family's ghosts resurface and threaten to upend everything."--
