Overview

Winter Solstice by Elin Hilderbrand

*The USA Today Bestseller*


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.

Another great book from one of my favorite authors. What I love most are the diverse characters whether main or the ones sprinkled throughout the book.

I have never really been a fan of books where the point of view is continuously changing from one character to another. I think to a certain extent, it keeps us from knowing the characters as well as we could. The beginning of the book was a bit confusing as it jumped from viewpoint to viewpoint, but gained more cohesiveness as the storylines merged. I know this was supposed to be the final in this series, but there are so many questions that still could be answered. So many characters have new beginnings and it doesn't feel final. I did feel that the story was endearing, but it just left me wanting. I received a copy of this book from my friends at Netgalley.com in exchange for my honest review.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings 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.

Wow!! I’m telling you right now after just finishing this book I have a warning. If you buy and read this, go ahead and pick up a box of tissues. You WILL need them. This was the 4th book in this series and I only found that out while reading the acknowledgments at the end of the book. I had absolutely no idea. To me, it read like the first in the series. AND I am confounded and lost that there will not be a sequel!!! I absolutely loved this book and want more!! Thanks to Little, Brown and Company and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

This was the finale, the good-bye, the tying up the loose ends in the Quinn family dramas. I loved this group of characters. They were so real. They were a family with drama, humour and a lot of love. The series takes place over the last 4 years with each book set a Christmas. This one was bittersweet and I finished it with tears, but I still loved the story. This story finds the Quinn family in transition. Margaret, aka, Maggie is retiring from her career as a CBS news anchor, Bart who was rescued from Afghanistan in the last book is suffering from depression, Jennifer and Patrick are trying to put their lives back together again after his release from prison, Kevin and Isabelle have a successful business and a new baby and Ava has moved to New York to be closer to Potter. That being said, Nantucket is still home and the family is drawn back to Winter Inn on a couple of occasions. I devoured this book very quickly. I wanted to find out what was going to happen to all of the family and was both happy and not so happy at various points. I was sad to say good-bye to the Quinns, but this book tied up the loose ends nicely. Each chapter is written from a different characters point of view of similar events. I enjoyed Margaret's chapters very much as we got to know her much better in this book. I recommend that you read these books in order so you will understand the story and get to know the characters. A fitting conclusion to a great series. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.

Predictable and pretentious. After liking the characters and setting in the first two books in the Winter Street series, I was disappointed with Winter Storms. I decided to give Winter Solstice a chance to see how Elin Hilderbrand wrapped things up. It's as if she is just going through the motions to complete the book deal. There is nothing that interesting to grab and hold your attention - unless reading over and over how "evolved" the good people were appeals to you - and everything ends exactly as you would expect. I really enjoyed the first few books I read by this author. I don't know if she changed or it's me, but I won't be reading any more of her books.

Winter Solstice is an amazing and beautifully written novel, about living, loving, and weathering the storms that show up in life. The author draws the reader deep into the heart of the Quinn family, a healing, blended family from Nantucket. Kelly Quinn is dying from brain cancer. He is fortunate, though, to have a good relationship with his children, his current wife, Mitzi, and his ex-wife, Margaret. Although Margaret and Mitzi are cordial and work together now for the children and Kelly’s sake, that had not always been the case. Margaret’s children, Patrick, Kevin, and Ava have all lived under Mitzi and Kelly’s roof for years; along with Bart, Mitzi and Kelly’s only child. All of the children in this book are grown and struggle with some very adult issues. The author’s writing is sharp and descriptive. She effortlessly places the reader deep into each character’s life. I came to know the characters intimately and cared for them all. I felt their pain, their struggles, and their joy. Because the author covers a wide range of topics and difficulties, readers will easily be able to identify with some of the character’s experiences; such as love and betrayal, choices and consequences, selfishness and sacrifice and forgiveness and acceptance. Nobody is perfect, and everyone must live with the consequences of their decisions. Pain is a part of life, but so is joy, acceptance, and love. I had a hard time keeping the characters straight at first. But, once I did, I couldn’t put the book down. Winter Solstice is an in-depth, enjoyable, and well-written read. Thank you, Little, Brown and Company and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
