I stuck it out longer than I normally would because THE WINTERS is a REBECCA retelling, and I love REBECCA! It was one of my gateway books into the gothic romance genre, which I love. But this retelling fell a bit short for me. Setting it in the Hamptons and just making it rich people porn didn't really work-- at least not for me. The writing style was not bad but it lacked the sense of dread and atmosphere that I wanted, and this heroine lacked the sort of naive sweetness and charm that the original second Mrs. de Winter had.
