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.

Third book in the series a little sad and a little predictable can’t wait to read the last one... I enjoy the food parts to give you ideas on how to prepare food. I really wanted to give them more than three stars so let’s know that this is a four star book

Some of the stormy weather of the past few seasons seems to have finally lifted for the Quinns. After a year apart and an ill-fated affair with the Winter Street Inn's old 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.

I enjoyed listening to this book.....the characters personalities created a tension and relief that was very intriguing. The story line was mysteriously interwoven between two distinct settings. Well done.
