My rating: 4 of 5 stars
While I am so sad to see this series end, WINTER SOLSTICE wrapped up the story of the Quinn Family and the Winter Street Inn perfectly.
Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a review copy of this book – all opinions are my own.
The Winter series has been giving me warm and fuzzies since the publication of WINTER STREET in 2014, and I have eagerly awaited each subsequent title – next up was WINTER STROLL, then WINTER STORMS, and now finally WINTER SOLSTICE. Please please PLEASE do not start the series with this book! To get the full cozy satisfaction, you must go back to the beginning for all the backstory on the Quinn family and their world on Nantucket. I guarantee that you will be happy you did! Hilderbrand’s Nantucket stories are a sure thing when it comes to sense of place – the island itself takes the top billing in the list of characters and makes readers ache to live there.
Recommended for fans of Hilderbrand’s other work, and contemporary women’s fiction. This is a lighter, feel-good series with enough complexity to satisfy even readers of typically heavier works.
