Winter in Paradise

A husband's secret life, a wife's new beginning: escape to the Caribbean with New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand.

Irene Steele shares her idyllic life in a beautiful Iowa City Victorian house with a husband who loves her to sky-writing, sentimental extremes. But as she rings in the new year one cold and snowy night, everything she thought she knew falls to pieces with a shocking phone call: her beloved husband, away on business, has been killed in a plane crash. Before Irene can even process the news, she must first confront the perplexing details of her husband's death on the distant Caribbean island of St. John.

After Irene and her sons arrive at this faraway paradise, they make yet another shocking discovery: her husband had been living a secret life. As Irene untangles a web of intrigue and deceit, and as she and her sons find themselves drawn into the vibrant island culture, they have to face the truth about their family, and about their own futures.

Rich with the lush beauty of the tropics and the drama, romance, and intrigue only Elin Hilderbrand can deliver, Winter in Paradise is a truly transporting novel, and the exciting start to a new series.

I just finished this book. Found several grammatical and name errors. The proofreader did not do a good job. Her ending also disappointed, UNLESS it’s the first in a series???? 25

Great story, bad proofing4 star

I loved the story and can’t wait for the “rest of the story” I am quite disappointed in the proof reading that was done on this book...wrong names used...words misspelled....really not a very good job at all. 45

Not very good. Only redeeming factor is the wonderful description of my beloved St. John! 15

Loved this book. I was relieved that it is the first in a trilogy. How book two is out soon. I’m glad Elin has moved to a new locale. 55


Abrupt ending2 star

The book was ok, not great, until I got to the “end.” I actually thought there was a malfuntion of my iBook app. I couldn’t believe a book would end on that note. Very disappointed... 25

Terrible ending to have. If you’re going to write a book do it and don’t drop it trying to make money for another. 15
