The fourth and final book in the Winter Street series was never really meant to be (it was planned as a trilogy), but it was a pleasant enough return to the inn and the Quinn family. This one is a little sadder and veers on some unneeded tangents--I believe a new character may be a crossover from another Hilderbrand book, and I didn't know or much care about him. Other characters, however, who had previously been slightly absurd, managed to become more fully formed and sympathetic here. This was not unputdownable reading, for me, but I wanted to finish out the series and was happy to see the original characters through.

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.
