A New Chapter | The Winters | Blog Tour

This year marks 80 years since Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier was published, and now we’re treated to a modern-day retelling of the book – bringing a classic to the modern audience. 


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.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance to finish this book before publication date (which was yesterday, by the way) but I just wanted to write a few words.

I’m super interested in reading this book, although having never read Rebecca, I do wonder if that will change how I view the book compared to if I’d read the original. I have heard that this is not a straight re-telling and that there’s definitely  something different about this one.

But… I’ll keep you posted when I make my way through this read – I’m super excited to finish this!
