The Winters




An addictively suspenseful new novel set in the glamorous world of the New York Hamptons, about secrets that refuse to remain buried and consequences that cannot be escaped.

Inspired by the classic novel Rebecca, The Winters is a riveting story about what happens when a family’s ghosts resurface and threaten to upend everything.

How do you replace the perfect wife?

After a whirlwind romance, a young woman returns to the opulent, secluded mansion of her new fiancé Max Winter - a wealthy senator and recent widower - and to 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.

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.

Praise for The Winters

“A stylish, highly original and completely addictive take on du Maurier’s Rebecca. Read it!”

Shari Lapena, bestselling author of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR

“The Winters is a beautifully crafted, haunting thriller that defies expectations at every turn. I read straight through, breathless to the killer final pages. A brilliant achievement.”

Sarah Pinborough, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes

“A sharp and wickedly vivid novel - Lisa Gabriele spins a tight, gasping mystery from the confines of a picturesque home. As a result, The Winters is both a gripping thriller and an acute story of female resilience.”

Danya Kukafka, author of Girl in Snow

“From the brilliant first line to the shattering conclusion, The Winters will draw you in and leave you breathless. Gorgeous prose, well-drawn characters, and a spellbinding story make this a must read.”

Liv Constantine, author of The Last Mrs. Parrish

“Gabriele's chutzpah in reinventing a much-loved novel brings considerable risk, but the results are satisfying, both as metafiction and as a sharp exercise in psychological suspense.”
