As more secrets unravel and chaos ensues, it's up to Ava to piece together the holiday before everyone leaves-possibly forever.
Elin Hilderbrand makes us fall in love with the crazy, extraordinary Quinn family-and with the magic of Christmas.« less
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.
