Winter Stroll
Winter Stroll | Elin Hilderbrand
"Happy Holidays 2015! It has been a rough year for the Quinns, but I would like to start by saying thank you for all of the well wishes and positive missives sent our way." Another Christmas on Nantucket finds Winter Street Inn owner Kelley Quinn reflecting on the past year as he writes a holiday letter to friends and family. Though the year has had its share of misfortune and worry, the Quinns have much to celebrate. Kelley, now single, at least is on better terms with his first wife Margaret, who is using her celebrity to lure customers to the inn in record numbers. Their son Kevin has a beautiful new baby, Genevieve, with the Inn's French housekeeper, Isabelle; and their daughter, Ava, is finally dating a nice guy--her devoted colleague, Scott. Now the Quinns are looking forward to celebrating Genevieve's baptism, welcoming Isabelle to the family, and enjoying the cheer of Nantucket's traditional Christmas Stroll. But just when a peaceful family gathering seems within reach, Kelley's estranged second wife, Mitzi, shows up on the island after souring on her relationship with the inn's former Santa Claus. Soon Kelley isn't the only Quinn entertaining a surprise guest from Christmases past as lovers old and new gather beneath the mistletoe. With jealousy, passion, and eggnog consumption at an all-time high, it's going to take a whole lot more than a Christmas miracle to get the Quinns--and the inn--through the holidays intact.

I really love Elin Hilderbrand‘s books....they are so easy to sink into, relatable characters, a sunny pleasant place to visit. I can‘t wait to get my hands on the third in this series.

This second book did not disappoint! I am loving the Quinn family and all of their problems! Again this left in a cliffhanger, so even though the holidays are technically coming to an end, I will probably have to finish this series.

I‘ve enjoyed these short books about Nantucket at Christmas. Discovered this author just this year and have enjoyed all of her books. Makes me want to visit Nantucket next time I‘m back in MA.

For the majority of this reread, I didn‘t like it as much as I liked the first book (Winter Street). Most of the characters are just SO MUCH DRAMA* and one or two have behavior that really irritates me.

But then the last quarter of the story happens and with it come ALL THE EMOTIONS. Then I forget that I feel only the biggest book love, shouted from the highest of rooftops for this series.

*the Quinn Family DRAMA is what I love most 😉

With this book, I hit my Goodreads goal of 200. I liked it enough to give it a pick because the stories of the Quinn family members keep me interested and engaged — except for Ava‘s; her jealousy is just stupid. If Hilderbrand gave this character an incurable disease, I would not be upset. That said, I probably will read the other books, but I‘ll be tempted to skip over Ava‘s sections.

Up next for holiday reading. I‘ve read the first one in the trilogy — Winter Street — and liked it well enough. When I was Christmas shopping today, I found this for $7.97, so I thought it would be good Christmas beach reading.

Rosaveiga I have read all 4 actually and loved all of them. There are 4 books in this series (edited) 12mo
KathyWheeler @Rosaveiga Oh! I thought there were three. I hate Ava, but I generally like what I‘ve read so far. 12mo

Book 2 of the Quinn family drama is good, but not quite as good as the first. It ends on another cliffhanger, so I‘m grateful I don‘t have to wait an entire year for the next book to come out. On to book 3! 4⭐️

After a winter storm drive home from work tonight 😳, I finished Winter Stroll. So enthralled with the Quinn Family that I‘m immediately starting book three of the series. The characters are all so different, and flawed in their own way, but that‘s what makes them relatable.

This may have been my favorite of the series thus far. You got to know the family and characters a lot better and understand their dynamic a lot better. I once again listened to this one on audiobook and enjoyed it just as much as the first book in the series. It is bases around the Christmas season but wasn‘t as Christmasy as the first book but if you liked the first one I still highly recommend reading this one.
4⭐️‘s ⠀

Two books in with the Quinn Clan and I‘m still not wowed. What bothers me the most is the indecisiveness of the characters, making them seem weak, unlikable, or a combination of the two. Sometimes when there are a lot of characters in a story, the storytelling of each becomes a little too thin. It‘s hard to elaborate without giving much away. On the flip side, I‘ll keep reading to find out what happens as this is a short, effortless series.

What can I say, I'm highly addicted to the continuing story of the dysfunctional Quinn family. I'm glad I just came across the first book in the series, Winter Street, this year. That way I can binge read all 4 books in the series! 😬The second installment was almost as good as the first. Onward to book 3! 4.5⭐️#Christmas

I just love this series, there loves are not perfect and happily ever after are constantly turned upside down. Just like real life the holidays are filled with drama Hilderbrand just amps it up a bit. I think this will stay one of my favourite Christmas series. #christmas #christmasbooks

Apparently I'm in the mood for Christmas in a cozy inn on Nantucket with plenty of family drama! I breezed through the second book of Hilderbrand's Winter Trilogy yesterday, then immediately put the third on hold. Hope I don't have to wait too long...

A very enjoyable escapist read about a family running an inn during Christmastime in Nantucket. Fun read for this time of year! I even missed the first book in this trilogy but did not need to read it to enjoy this book.

This is the 2nd in the Winter Trilogy-takes place one year after Winter Street. The dysfunctional Quinn Family gathers again for the holiday, all of their issues in tow. These books are quick, entertaining reads. At times predictable but that's partly why I love them so much. Jennifer's POV is a favorite of mine.

The end isn't as abrupt as the previous book. I'm anxious to see how the author ties the ends up in the finale.
