Content descriptions

General Note: Inspired by Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier.
Summary, etc.: "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 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"-- Provided by publisher.

    "Last night Rebekah tried to murder me again." So begins Gabriele's (The Almost Archer Sisters?, 2008) haunting reimagining of Daphne Du Maurier's original thriller, Rebecca (1938). In this version, an orphaned young woman begins a passionate affair with Max Winter, a widowed, wealthy New York politician. After a whirlwind romance, Max proposes marriage and invites her to move to his Long Island mansion, Asherley. She agrees and is thrust from a life of servitude into a world of wealth, glamour, and loneliness, as Max is often away, leaving her to roam the halls of Asherley and obsess over his first wife, the beautiful, tragic Rebekah. There is also Dani Winter, Max and Rebekah's tortured teenage daughter, who seems set on making her future stepmother miserable. As the narrator plans her wedding, secrets, questions, and threats begin to hint at the past, ultimately revealing the truth about the Winters. This retelling, updated with Instagram stalking and magazine photo shoots, retains the allure and gothic tone of the original, while remaining a page-turner for newcomers to the story.
