The Winters
The Winters | Lisa Gabriele
"From the brilliant first line to the shattering conclusion, The Winters will draw you in and leave you breathless. . . . A must read." --Liv Constantine, author of The Last Mrs. Parrish A spellbindingly suspenseful new 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 fianc 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.

This is a modern-day retelling of the classic gothic story, Rebecca, by Daphne De Maurier. Rebecca is one of my favorite books and this retelling didn‘t disappoint. You can‘t really improve on the original but Lisa Gabriele did a fantastic job mirroring the story but making it original at the same time. I like to think that Daphne would be proud. If you‘ve never read Rebecca, I recommend you read that first.

I loved this one, but am recommending it with a caveat: if you haven‘t read Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, you absolutely need to read that first before you dive into this one, lest you become one of the countless reviewers I saw who griped about certain aspects of this book which are hallmarks of the original. This is a modern retelling of Rebecca, with its own twists & turns, & I absolutely LOVE what the author did with the classic characters.

As ‘Rebecca‘ by Daphne Du Maurier is my favourite book of all time, I was both intrigued & apprehensive at reading this modern retelling.

The first half of the book seemed to confirm my fears of it being but a pale imitation of the original, however the author turned it around superbly in the second half. 4🌟

I was inspired to read Rebecca a few months ago thanks to the PBS Great American Reads list. While I enjoyed it, I was a little stumped as to why it made the list. 🤷‍♀️ Curious about this modern day retelling... has anyone read this one?

jpmcwisemorgan I saw it today because the ebook is $2.99 but I didn‘t get it because I‘m trying to be better about not buying so many books and I bought a bunch from Dreamspinners because they had a sale. Ahhhhh!!!! But, I‘m kind of interested in this one. 😬 11mo
Weaponxgirl I loved it myself, the atmosphere and those famous first lines 😊 11mo
Buechersuechtling The “original” Rebecca is at my significant other‘s flat and still needs to be read. Now I‘m feeling I should read it soon. 11mo
TheFunkyBookworm @Weaponxgirl I think everything I had heard about it had built it up to be this intense thriller and so I was expecting something that it wasn‘t. I def enjoyed the atmosphere of the book tho. Also I remember something weird about the ending of the book being at the beginning... does that sound familiar? 11mo
Weaponxgirl @TheFunkyBookworm I‘d never really thought of it as a thriller but I can imagine that if you went in thinking that it would affect how you felt about what you got in the end. I‘d just heard of it when I read it as a gothic classic and so got what I was expecting. Honestly can‘t remember the ending well, just remember that I loved it 11mo

2.5 STARS - I haven‘t read Rebecca (by Daphne de Maurier) which this book is based off of but this rendition of the tale didn‘t do it for me. Weak characters and dialogue and not enough tension. This book seems really popular but it wasn‘t a good fit for me.

As the title would suggest, this is a retelling or based on novel of Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. It was a modern retelling. I found it to be quite a fun read. The author had twisted and turns that made it just that much different than the original to keep you interested. Definitely recommend it to readers who like a good psychological thriller and readers who like Rebecca. The writer honored the original text quite nicely.

Reason 523 to love libraries: automatic book renewals. I have not finished this book. It was due this upcoming Sat. I was going to renew it online toward the end of the week. I received an email from the library today stating that my book was due on Sat, however, it may have automatically renewed. Holy moly cow. I am amazed. Libraries plus technology equals happy happy readers.

Amie I work at a public library and in the first 10 minutes of my shift this morning a patron complained that we had automatically renewed her book that is due tomorrow which she was returning today. This is such a convenient service for most people, so I can't quite understand what her problem was. It's nice to see that you appreciate the service 😊 12mo
Bookzombie @amie My library doesn‘t do this, but I would love it. I often renew items and then return them the next day when I can get to the library. 12mo
LisaJo @amie That is kind of strange. It‘s not like you get charged for a renewal. 12mo
LisaJo @bookzombie I too have renewed items just so I can delay when I have to get back to the library. I‘m pretty positive if there is someone waiting for the book they will not auto renew it for you. I have cards for two libraries. Only one of them does this. Perhaps it will start to pop up at more libraries. 12mo

5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars - I LOVED this book 😍. It took me a little longer than usual to read this suspenseful book, but I think that was only because I didn‘t want it to end. It is beautifully written and the descriptions and character observations really pull you into the story. I made several guesses along the way, and although I got close a couple times, I didn‘t put all the pieces together until the very end. Highly recommend! #jpbookreview

****🚨 POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERT 🚨 ****

“He killed my kitten. So I burned his fucking house down.” I love this line! Youth personified. A note on book design - Yaaassss! 5 ⭐️ for the jacket, the font, the hot pink hardcover binding matching the cover, the bleeding roses from the Queen of Hearts garden (not unfitting as heads do tend to roll, both physically & figuratively) with hints of vibrant green peeking out. A lovely add for my library!

“Max has become two men to me, the one I met on my island, and the one who took me to live with him on his.”

Gah! What an achingly beautiful novel. I‘ve never been a fan of retellings. But Gabriele manages to shelter all of the vintage classic elements of Du Maurier‘s suspenseful novel by “opening the curtains, flooding the story” with a fresh mysterious light that is both timeless and yet somehow new all at the same time.

gradcat I‘m not a fan of retellings either, yet somehow you‘ve piqued my interest. (edited) 13mo

Something a bit different for me. Max brings a new woman into Asherley following the death of his wife but Asherley holds secrets. Dani the daughter is hostile but is she responsible for the goings on or is there something more sinister. Really good storyline with very believable characters centered around a house with a history.

The classic novel, Rebecca, has always been a favorite of mine and this book, whose tone and plot parallels the original, is just as much of a page-turner. From the Grand Cayman Islands to an estate on the east end of Long Island, a couple‘s whirlwind romance turns into something terrifying in this riveting love story/thriller.

Yvonnel Great review. I‘m getting it for sure now! I love Rebecca. 14mo
