Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand
Winter Trilogy - Book 1
This was not the book I was expecting but I quite enjoyed it!
I was expecting a heart-warming romance, typical of the season, but what I got was a family story filled with love, humour, drama, whimsy and fun.
The characters of the Quinn family are real and flawed and quite perfect in some ways. All I can tell you is that I loved reading about them. Dysfunctional doesn't quite cover it. *LOL* Oh, but they're a lot of fun, really. I wanted to see the Christmas movie made of this novel. It'd beat the Hallmark Christmas movies all to hell, I'm sure!
So, not quite a romance and not really a family saga. It's a heart-warming novel, as they say, about a family coming home for Christmas and I found it hit the perfect spot. And as such, this will close my Christmas reading for the year. Always good to close on a good note. 😊
