Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Known for her heartwarming observations of family life, New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer showcases her beloved Nantucket’s snowy off-season in this emotionally gratifying and utterly entertaining story.

 

Holidays on this Massachusetts island are nothing short of magical, and the season’s wonderful traditions are much loved by Nicole Somerset, new to Nantucket and recently married to a handsome former attorney. Their home is already full of enticing scents of pine, baking spices, and homemade pie.

 

But the warm, festive mood is soon tempered by Nicole’s chilly stepdaughter, Kennedy, who arrives without a hint of holiday spirit. Determined to keep her stepmother at arm’s length—or, better yet, out of the picture altogether—Kennedy schemes to sabotage Nicole’s holiday preparations. Nicole, however, is not about to let anyone or anything tarnish her first Christmas with her new husband.

 

Nancy Thayer’s wonderful tale reminds us that this is the season of miracles. Before the gifts are unwrapped, surprise visitors appear, and holiday joy comes to all, both naughty and nice.

The Book Goddess, October 23, 2013 (view all comments by The Book Goddess)
I received this book from Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review

This was a heart-warming, Christmas story. Each chapter is told from a different character's perspective, Maddox (a lovely 3-yr old), Kennedy (Maddox's spoiled and whiny, preganant mother), Nicole (Kennedy's step-mother), and Snix (a homeless dog). I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed the chapters that belonged to Nicole and Snix, especially Snix...how often do you get a dog's point of view. The utter and complete joy and magic of Christmas that came out of Nicole's chapters was enough to make me wish it was Christmas year-round. I also enjoyed the honesty of the characters, though their personalties seemed to be a bit extreme (though I know people like this do exist). The story was engaging and very easy to get wrapped up in. If you are looking for an uplifting, magical Christmas story...this just might be your book.
