Title: Winter Storm – (Book 3 in the series)
Author: Elin Hilderbrand
Genre: Family Drama
- Kelley Quinn (owner of the Nantucket Winter Street Inn)
- Mitzi – Kelley’s second wife
- Margaret – Kelley’s first wife
- Patrick, Ava, and Kevin – Kelley’s children with Margaret
- Bart – Kelley & Mitzi’s son
Some of the stormy weather of the past few seasons seems to have finally lifted for the Quinn’s. After a year apart, and an ill-fated affair with the Winter Street Inn’s Santa Claus, Mitzi has returned to rule the roost; Patrick is about to be released from prison; Kevin has a successful new business and is finally ready to tie the knot with Isabelle; and best of all, there’s hopeful news about Bart, who has been captured by enemy forces in Afghanistan.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t a few dark clouds on the horizon. Kelley has recently survived a health scare; Jennifer can’t quite shake her addiction to the drugs she used as a crutch wise Patrick was in jail; and Ava still can’t decide between the two lovers she’s been juggling with limited success. However, if there’s one holiday that brings the Quinn family together to give thanks for the good times, it’s Christmas. And this year promises to be a celebration unlike any other as the Quinns prepare to host Kevin and Isabelle’s wedding at the inn. But as the special day approaches, a historic once-in-a-century blizzard bears down on Nantucket, threatening to keep the Quinn’s away from the pace – and the people – they love most. Before the snow clears, the Quinns will have to survive enough upheavals to send anyone running for the speed eggnog.
This was probably the most dramatic book of the series but the Quinn family are always full of drama and curveballs but also beautiful moments and coming together in some way or another, for the magic of family and the Christmas spirit. This book proves that when the holidays roll around you can always go home to those that matter most.
