Winter Street
by Elin Hilderbrand

Publisher: Little Brown
Pages: 256
Format: book

Goodreads:  Kelley Quinn is the owner of Nantucket's Winter Street Inn and the proud father of four, all of them grown and living in varying states of disarray. Patrick, the eldest, is a hedge fund manager with a guilty conscience. Kevin, a bartender, is secretly sleeping with a French housekeeper named Isabelle. Ava, a school teacher, is finally dating the perfect guy but can't get him to commit. And Bart, the youngest and only child of Kelley's second marriage to Mitzi, has recently shocked everyone by joining the Marines. 

As Christmas approaches, Kelley is looking forward to getting the family together for some quality time at the inn. But when he walks in on Mitzi kissing Santa Claus (or the guy who's playing Santa at the inn's annual party), utter chaos descends. With the three older children each reeling in their own dramas and Bart unreachable in Afghanistan, it might be up to Kelley's ex-wife, nightly news anchor Margaret Quinn, to save Christmas at the Winter Street Inn.

Before the mulled cider is gone, the delightfully dysfunctional Quinn family will survive a love triangle, an unplanned pregnancy, a federal crime, a small house fire, many shots of whiskey, and endless rounds of Christmas caroling, in this heart-warming novel about coming home for the holidays.
 



Kritters Thoughts:  Kelley Quinn is the owner of an inn in Nantucket and is the father of four children from two different relationships.  Kelley, both current and ex wife and three of the kids narrate the book, so although it was hard to remember who was narrating, I loved getting the story from multiple points of view.  

Over the course of a few days this story unfolds and drama definitely ensues!  I loved that each character had some sort of drama that they were dealing with so the book didn't revolve around one character, but that each had something going on.  I would love to have a sequel with all characters involved to update the reader on each characters story beyond Christmas.

If you love Elin Hilderbrand and you love wintry christmas reads, then this is perfect to curl up with on a winter weekend and enjoy!  


Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
