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.
I really enjoyed this book so much. It took me by surprise in a great way. Mrs. Winters is the voice of this story. This book had a gothic/psychological thriller vibe. Now, if this does not get your attention; the storyline itself will grab you.
I was trying to figure out what the mystery surrounding the former Mrs. Winter was all about. I will tell you that you should just forget about trying to figure the mystery out and just sit back relax and enjoy reading this book. There was an aire of the gothic vibes felt the whole time I was reading this book. Not to mention the fact that it was like a movie playing in my head.
Speaking of the ending. It did not disappoint. From start to finish, I had a great time reading this book. In fact, it got me out of my reading slump. Author, Lisa Gabriele pens a haunting story that will keep you sitting on the edge of your seat until the very last page!
