My Review:Raise one last glass with the Quinn Family at the Winter Street Inn.
It's been too long since the entire Quinn family has been able to celebrate the holidays under the same roof, but that's about to change. With Bart back safe and sound from Afghanistan, the Quinns are preparing for a holiday more joyous than any they've experienced in years. And Bart's safe return isn't the family's only good news: Kevin is enjoying married life with Isabelle; Patrick is getting back on his feet after paying his debt to society; Ava thinks she's finally found the love of her life; and Kelly is thrilled to see his family reunited at last. But it just wouldn't be a Quinn family gathering if things went smoothly. A celebration of everything we love--and some of the things we endure--about the holidays, WINTER SOLSTICE is Elin Hilderbrand at her festive best.
I remember reading the first two books in this series and being absolutely unable to put them down. The third book wasn't as good for me as the first two and it was supposed to be the conclusion to this series. When it ended on a cliffhanger, I was half apprehensive/half excited for a fourth book. And while I think the series concluded sufficiently, it was rather melancholy as opposed to the first three books and what I kind of come to want from Elin Hilderbrand. Granted, she doesn't always give us a happy ending but this one left me a bit blue. I love the Quinn family she created in these books and I love the Nantucket setting in winter but I couldn't help but want a bit more from this ending. That being said, I still recommend this series - now that they are all out, it would be perfect to binge read them during the holidays!
Winter Solstice comes out next week on October 3, 2017, and you can purchase HERE.
The first weekend of December on Nantucket is Christmas Stroll. It has been this way Bart's entire life, but he never cared, barely noticed, and didn't think to celebrate.
Until this year.
Because this year he's in love.
He's in love!
