Publisher's Summary

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.

Enjoyable tradition

I enjoy listening to or reading these books during the holiday season. I don’t personally like this reader’s voice that much but I loved the book fine. Light and kept my attention.

Bad ending

If this is how the series ends, I am very much disappointed. It’s very depressing.

It’s all about Margaret

This one really felt like a money grab...about 20% actual the story, the rest just filler...a chunk of which didn’t even involve the Quinn family. I will only be back if the next one’s a prequel, Margaret and Kelly: the Early Years

Nice Closure!

This book really tied things up. I love the story of the Quinn family. And as always, Erin Bennett is the perfect narrator for Hilderbrand!

Not as good ...

This is the last / newest book in this series and a bit of a disappointment. It does try to wrap everything up, but it's a bit boring and sad that it just ends the way it does. Maybe Elin has a follow up planned, but the 4 books in the series were maybe 6 hours each and all expensive for how short they were. The 4 book series could easily have been 1 to 2 books.

Not very good

I’ve read most of Elin Hildebrand’s books but recently have noticed way too much descriptions. I feel she is just trying to fill pages. For instances in this book she describes the taco bars toppings, the ingredients in the recipes for Thanksgiving Day, the order of the seating at the table etc. she also describes the going out outfit down to the Jimmy Choo shoes. I quite frankly would like a little more substance in the book

The very best!

I’ve read every one of her books and loved each one, but this is the very best. Hurry up and write your next book.

just excellent!

Would you consider the audio edition of Winter Solstice to be better than the print version?

I listened, but didn't read so I have no idea.

Who was your favorite character and why?

too many favorites to list .. all of them actually, in one way or the other.

Which scene was your favorite?

most of the book was my favorite.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

no, almost but not quite.

Any additional comments?

This was a great series ... I love Robyn Carr's Virgin River series and this one is every bit as good, and maybe a little better .. I hope it continues.
