    4.5 Stars "Last night Rebekah tried to murder me again." Now that is how you grip a reader from the very first sentence! A young woman, who shall remain nameless, meets Max, a wealthy politician and widower when he charters a boat form the company where she is employed in the ...

    Lisa Gabriele writes an enjoyable psychological thriller based on Daphne Du Maurier's classic novel Rebecca. This is a modern American version set in the wealthy Hamptons, Long Island. A naive unnamed young woman from the Cayman Islands is swept up in a surprisingly whirlwind romance w...

    First I should say that Rebecca is an all time favorite of mine, and this book was inspired by the original. It isn't a retelling. I have read the 1938 classic, Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier twice and I was really looking forward to reading this novel.  The blurb says that this ...

    "Last night Rebekah tried to murder me again." The Winters is a modern day re-telling of the classic novel Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. I am apparently one of the only people in the world that hasn't read this classic novel but I intend to especially after reading this gem of a ...

    Sinister The Winters is an audacious book, in that it grabs very explicitly the iconic story Rebecca, by Daphne du Maurier, in both hands and writes a bold new modern-day retelling of Max Winter and his new wife, following the death of his first wife Rebecca (or Rebekah in this novel)...

    I'm not a big fan of modern retellings of well known novels. It has been a long time since I read Rebecca, so I dont remember all the t. What I do remeber is the Gothic tone, the sense of forboding that creeped through the pages. I didn't find that here. What I found was a young, naive...

    Rebecca, by Daphne du Maurier, is a long-time favorite of mine, so when I received this book in the mail as my November Shelf subscription I was excited. What made it even better was buddy reading it with my good friend Marialyce. The opening line, ?Last Night Rebekah tried to mu...

    I wouldn't say there is anything significantly wrong with this book. I guess my main issue is it didn't feel like it was something new and different. Supposedly this is a modern day re-telling of Rebecca. I haven't read the book but enjoyed the Alfred Hitchcock movie when I saw it year...

    First, I want to say that I love REBECCA by Daphne du Maurier. It's a book that I have read several times and I feel like I love it a bit more every time I read it. Second, this book, well we got off on the wrong foot I think. I had a hard time getting into it, found it hard to like th...

    A modern retelling of Daphne du Maurier's, Rebecca, set in the Hamptons of New York. I'll be up front and say that I've yet to read Rebecca (though I do have a copy on my shelf... why do I do this to myself?!). I now wish I had read the classic first just to see what had been changed t...

    This was pretty good considering it's almost a retelling of Rebecca, a story every book or movie lover knows of. I can't help to think it could have been a tiny bit shorter but the ending was perfect. I really loved this modern, twisted Rebecca retelling. Full review soon! ...

    I absolutely loved this book - just could not get enough! It was so beautifully written and at times I felt like I was actually there in the Hamptons with the characters. With a cast of characters all hiding secrets from each other it was hard to know how was to be trusted. And I had i...

    I battled between 2 or 3 stars for this title, and ultimately felt that the writing and the story deserved more than a lackluster response, so 3 stars it is! Disclaimer: I've never read Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, but I was told that by not reading the original, that I'd enjoy this re...

    Some of these things I learned firsthand, some through bits and pieces I read online, because ours was a story that had captured the world's attention. Like du Maurier's Rebecca with a Mean Girls makeover, this is a fun light read that certainly keeps the pages turning. It would be ...

    This is a nice, light riff on Rebecca. There are enough changes to make it an interesting update yet retain the Gothic elements of the classic novel. Well done but not riveting. ...

    I wouldn't say there is anything significantly wrong with this book. I guess my main issue is it didn't feel like it was something new and different. Supposedly this is a modern day re-telling of Rebecca. I haven't read the book but enjoyed the Alfred Hitchcock movie when I saw it year...

    First, I want to say that I love REBECCA by Daphne du Maurier. It's a book that I have read several times and I feel like I love it a bit more every time I read it. Second, this book, well we got off on the wrong foot I think. I had a hard time getting into it, found it hard to like th...

    A modern retelling of Daphne du Maurier's, Rebecca, set in the Hamptons of New York. I'll be up front and say that I've yet to read Rebecca (though I do have a copy on my shelf... why do I do this to myself?!). I now wish I had read the classic first just to see what had been changed t...

    This was pretty good considering it's almost a retelling of Rebecca, a story every book or movie lover knows of. I can't help to think it could have been a tiny bit shorter but the ending was perfect. I really loved this modern, twisted Rebecca retelling. Full review soon! ...

    I absolutely loved this book - just could not get enough! It was so beautifully written and at times I felt like I was actually there in the Hamptons with the characters. With a cast of characters all hiding secrets from each other it was hard to know how was to be trusted. And I had i...

    I battled between 2 or 3 stars for this title, and ultimately felt that the writing and the story deserved more than a lackluster response, so 3 stars it is! Disclaimer: I've never read Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, but I was told that by not reading the original, that I'd enjoy this re...

    Some of these things I learned firsthand, some through bits and pieces I read online, because ours was a story that had captured the world's attention. Like du Maurier's Rebecca with a Mean Girls makeover, this is a fun light read that certainly keeps the pages turning. It would be ...

    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 Winters was hugely addictive and I thoroughly enjoyed this homage to Daphne Du Maurier and Rebecca- a novel I?ve read a few times over the years. The Winters is atmospheric and clever, with nods to the original inspiration dotted about within which enhanced the read for me bea...

    I think this is the first retelling I've seen where the blurb doesn't gleefully announce that it's a retelling. Odd, considering that Daphne DuMaurier's REBECCA is such a beloved book and the idea of a modern retelling would intrigue many. ...

    "Last night Rebekah tried to murder me again." If that opening sentence doesn?t draw you in, little else will. Heavily inspired by Daphne Du Maurier?s Rebecca, The Winters does an excellent job of being an exciting psychological suspense novel all on its own. So if you never rea...

    I picked this up far too soon after finishing Du Maurier's version and unfortunately it doesn't hold up well in comparison. ...

    Talk about dysfunctional family - holy heck are there some serious issues and baggage and secrets within the Winters family! And what a fun ride it was to watch them all unravel! (Gosh that sounds so mean, but it's fiction right.. no guilt here!) I really enjoyed this crazy suspens...

    The Winters, Lisa Gabriele's spin on the du Maurier classic Rebecca, is a tale set in the affluent and glamorous world of the Asherley Estate where Mr and Mrs Winters reside. Although the author has liberally borrowed from the original, she does at least add some unique touches of her ...

    3.5 - review to come The Winters was definitely a slow burn type of book, which made the beginning a bit tough for me to get into, given that I'm a fairly impatient person (oops). The other factor here is that this is a modern retelling of Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier - a classic th...

    ?Max has become two men to me, the one I met on my island, and the one who took me to live with him on his.? Gah! What an achingly beautiful novel. I?ve never been a fan of retellings. But Gabriele manages to shelter all of the vintage classic elements of Du Maurier?s suspe...
