My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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.
Wow! Dani is a horrible teen. But is she? Do we believe the stories she tells about her dad not loving her and him being the bad person? Or is she such a great actress that you just want to slap her? There is a room that is a shrine to Rebekah that Dani doesn't want the new Mrs. Winters to be in. Then there is the greenhouse that Max doesn't want anyone in. Does he miss and grieve for his wife that much? There are so many questions and yes they are all answered by the end of the book. I received this from First To Read for review.
