Don’t Miss Elin Hilderbrand’s Newest 5-star Release! Coming 10/9/18
Irene was happy with her life as a wife, mother, and magazine editor until an email, detailing her demotion came to her attention, as well as a distressing phone call, informing Irene of her husband’s death. Irene had always been secure in her marriage. She never worried about her husband having affairs, even though he traveled a great deal. Her husband doted on her and showered her with attention whenever he was home. Perhaps, she should have been more concerned, because when he died in a helicopter crash, his mistress, a woman from St. Johns, USVI, perished along with him.
Irene wasn’t exactly excited to be taking a trip to the Virgin Islands, but her husband’s hidden life had her wanting answers. Irene’s grief and disbelief turned quickly to anger when she discovered the magnitude of her doting husband’s deceit. Irene’s sons, Baker and Cash Steele flew to the Virgin Islands, not only to support their mother but to do a little investigating themselves. The two brothers had never been close, but increasing competition and anger skyrocketed, when the two of them fell for the same Island girl, crushing any brotherly relationship they had.
Winter In Paradise is a compelling and well-crafted novel. The author drew me into the story right from the start. The characters are fascinating, the dialogue realistic and the story captivating. It does end with a cliff-hanger, however, so be warned. I plan on reading book two in the series. I’ve read several of Elin Hilderbrand’s books and have never been disappointed; Winter In Paradise is no exception.
Thank you, Little, Brown & Company and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!
