This is a charming Christmas story told in typical Hilderbrand style. Kelly Quinn is the owner of the Winter Street Inn on Nantucket Island, of course. Every year, he and Mitzi put on a big Christmas party that is the social event of the season. This year though, both the Inn and the family are struggling.
Bart, Kelly and Mitzi's youngest son, is currently deployed to Afghanistan. The other adult children from Kelly's first marriage are also home iwth an assortment of their own joys and troubles. When tragedy strikes, will the family be able to come together?
I expected the story to wrap up in a beautiful little Christmas bow, but was surprised when it didn't. There were story lines just left - literally in the air. I know this is a series but I was surprised by that. I enjoyed this book, but not her best. I gave it three out of five stars and I would recommend it for holiday reading.
