It began with a loose page of poetry that drifted meaningfully to the floor. A surprise inheritance that held a puzzle. A con job that was supposed to be easy. And a young archivist who would untangle it all…

When archives librarian, Nicole Sheffield, inherits an oceanfront property from her artistic aunt, Nina Corday, she’s unaware that something has been hidden for her in the house—and that more than one interested party is eager to get inside. As Nicole begins piecing together clues from Nina, she forms an unlikely alliance with an enigmatic man named Michael, who carries a secret of his own.

Set amid the beauty and chill of Cape Cod in autumn, Winters’ seventh novel delivers a complex, suspenseful tale of inheritance, art, deception and murder. KINGDOM BY THE SEA takes readers to a picturesque town on the coast of Massachusetts—then uncovers the secrets behind neighborly faces and the possibility of a love behind lies. Few things are what they seem, as this richly atmospheric mystery unfolds.

“[Winters’ writing] is a brilliant blurring of the lines between high art and pop culture.” -New Jersey Life Magazine
"[Winters’] plot, which appears deceptively simple, turns out surprisingly complex as...the murder mystery grows increasingly perplexing and terrifying...” -CurledUp.com on Raspberry Crush
