- “Winter in Paradise” by Elin Hilderbrand is a tale of light-heated suspense. A woman learns that her husband has died while on a trip to St Johns. She flies down to retrieve his remains, only to make another shocking discovery: her husband had a secret second family. Like this summer’s “The Perfect Couple’, Hidlerbrand plays the situation for smiles, not drama. “The (upcoming) holidays wouldn’t be complete without a little family dysfunction, and Hilderbrand writes it well” (Library Journal).
