Goodreads:  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.

Kritters Thoughts:  The final book in this series, book four and these books build on each other, so again you don't want to proceed if you haven't read the first three books as I may spoil a thing or two.  

Bart is back home after more than two years as POW.  Ava has found a direction and is headed down a path.  Kevin is happy and finally feeling like a success.  The other family members each have their own issues they are confronting.  

This was probably my least favorite out of all of the books in the series.  There is a new character introduced and it takes a bit to realize why he is in this book and I get why he was introduced, but I didn't love that he took away the focus on the family.  I might would have limited his chapters in the book, I am not sure we needed his perspective.  

Beware this book can make you feel all the feels and you may need a tissue and I wouldn't advise reading it in public!  I won't say what sends you down the road of feels, but it is real.  I think I am glad that this series ends here.  I like that it is four books full of the family, but is finished and complete.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
