From Little, Brown: 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.

My Review: THE END…You guys, I just turned the last page of WINTER SOLSTICE and the tears are flowing. I am filled with extraordinary happiness and sadness as I wrap up the Winter Street Series. The Quinn’s are full of drama (a lot of drama), life, love and everything that is good and charming.
My favourite character is Margaret Quinn, the quintessential matriarch who is wise, strong, beautiful, well respected, and problem solver. She is the glue that holds the Quinn family together!
Please, please read this series in order or you will rob yourself of the amazing detail and nuances each character brings to this series. There is so much growth between the first book and the last book.
Elin Hilderbrand’s writing is magical! This series captivated me from the first chapter of WINTER STREET and I voraciously read all four books. I cannot wait for Elin’s next series in 2018!
