I LOVE this book! This is my first Phyllis Whitney novel and I can't wait to read another! The only problem with this book is that she seems to drift off and talk about things that don't matter and soon i find myself bored. This is still a great book! It's creepy and fun!

Guaranteed to induce goose bumps in the most jaded reader Aug. 9 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
From her first glimpse of Glen Chandler, young Dina Blake was enchanted. Their courtship was swift, passionate, and filled with excitement Dina never knew existed.
She was certain their marriage would last forever...until he brought her to the family estate at High Towers. Then, slowly, relentlessly, Dina became aware that Glen's twin sister possessed her brother in a way Dina never could.
Suddenly Dina found herself alone in a house of strangers. She could no longer trust Glen's love and she knew his sister would stop at nothing to destroy their marriage. Not even murder.
A superb novel of love and terror, of a courageous young wife's confrontation with ultimate evil.

Winter People is a Change for Ms. Whitney Sept. 24 2010
By Mercedes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have read a number of Phyllis Whitney's books over the years, but felt that I was reading something new in this one. This could easily have been set in Scandinavia. However, winter people are plainly people of ice, people
without the ability to feel or empathize with others, but with the ability to charm and/or use others for their benefit!

Miss Whitney seems to favor the southeast in many of her books, so this came as quite a change for me. The writing was inspired. Perhaps the subject matter led Miss Whitney in an entirely different direction. I have read and seen stories, movies, about the bond between twins. We are led down an entirely different path with the twins in this book. Talented, tainted, and with a self-love that twists around their birth bond, fight it though they seem to, we wonder until the end, can this bond, hopefully, be broken. There's not much of a love story here (Darn it!) but we are clearly shown that some people are incapable of love, though they may wish otherwise.

I defy any reader to put this one down midway through it. ENJOY!! (?)

First Book I ever read March 25 2013
By Donna Klotz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When I was about 13 my step mother gave me this book to read, that got me started on my love of reading. I had lost it over the years so I was delighted to see it on Amazon.
A Novel of Atmosphere and Unique Setting March 15 2014
By TwilightMountainTrader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I loved the icy, aloof demeanor of the "Winter People.." people who are talented and aesthetic, but dangerously cold. I am not a fan of romantic suspense, but I would compare this storyline to a book called A Cry in the Night, by Mary Higgins Clark. This would make an interesting movie for The Lifetime for Women Genre.Instead of using a cliche castle or moors dripping with gloom, the author has used the backdrop of a wintry, upper class locale to further suspense. I found this refreshing.
