Product Description:

“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

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.



After a whirlwind romance, a young woman returns to her new husband’s opulent family estate only to find it is haunted by memories of his first wife. Sound familiar? If you guessed this might be Rebecca, you would be absolutely correct. However, it is also the plot of Gabriele's new book The Winters, in which she pays careful homage to Daphne du Maurier’s classic novel of romantic suspense. Gabriele rings a few changes to bring the story into the 21st century. The heroine (unnamed as in Rebecca) was orphaned early on in life and now works for the money-grubbing (and some might say déclassé) owner of a charter boat and yacht business in the Cayman Islands. When American politician Max Winters shows up one day on vacation to rent a boat, he immediately falls for our heroine. Despite warnings from her boss, the book’s narrator soon weds Max and is taken back by him to Asherley, his family’s home in the Hamptons. There our protagonist finds her every move shadowed by memories of Max’s first wife the impossibly beautiful and polished Rebekah as well as the efforts of Max’s teenage daughter Dani to drive her away.

It is never easy to capture the essence of a classic novel and then transform that into something new and entertaining, but I think Gabriele did a terrific job. Not only does Gabriele deliver all of the best elements of Du Maurier's novel - its strongly evoked sense of place, coolly polished prose, and unexpected plot twists - but she then adds in her own deft literary touches to create a uniquely mesmerizing novel of suspense that is guaranteed to cast its own spell over readers.
