Falling Behind Friday

Hi my peeps! Happy Friday!! This means it is time again for the walk of shame in our meme Falling Behind Friday. My Traveling Sisters and I started calling it this as a joke because we just can't get caught up and well it stuck. I am sure you can all relate. Please pop over to see what Norma & Brenda at Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee and Christina at Recipe and a Read have to say about this! For now I am going to hide in my box of shame.....

So let's establish that falling behind is NOT because I don't want to read it. In fact, I really want to read this book. It sounds absolutely fantastic and my kind of psychological thriller...The Winters by Lisa Gabriele.

Okay Rachael just simmer down. I know it is hard to believe that I have not read this book that I have been dying to read. In my defense I did just get a copy a couple of days before it's publication date...So I was chatting with my Traveling Sister Brenda from Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee and she admitted that she too was behind on this one. She then suggested we read it as a Traveling Sisters read with a group of us. See my answer below.....

Have you read The Winters yet? It looks like one fantastic read! Check out the Goodreads summary...


Goodreads Summary
 “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 fiancĂ© 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
