Are the skies clearing up at last for the Quinn family?
Some of the stormy weather of the last few years seems to have finally lifted for the Quinns, and if there's one holiday that lets them be grateful for the good times, it's Christmas. This year promises to be a celebration unlike any other as they prepare to host a family wedding at the Inn. As the special day approaches, a once-in-a-century blizzard bears down on Nantucket, threatening to keep the Quinns away from the place, and the people, they love most. Before the snow clears, the Quinns will have to survive enough upheavals to send anyone running for the spiked eggnog, in this touching novel that proves when the holidays roll around, you can always go home again.

This is the third and what was suppose to be the final book in the series as I am updating this post. Check back tomorrow for my review on Winter Solstice which I do believe is the final book but you never know.

This was another pretty quick read for me and read it within a night or two. Going into the book at the time I really want to jump in and find out what was going to happen in this last book. After reading this series I am really interested in reading her other series and perhaps I need to make that a reading challenge for 2018.

Winter Storm picks up several months after the previous book and unlike the previous books they don’t take place within several days of each but over the course Spring, Summer, Fall and winter holiday season. Its told in the same format as the Quinn family telling the story.

In this story Patrick is released from jail and his family is excited but if you think it would be all honky dory you are in for a surprise just like Patrick was when he came out. Patrick and his brother Kevin have discovered that Patrick’s wife, Jennifer has a pill addiction and her supplier is know to the family who has changed a lot since she was last seen by the family. Will Jennifer get the help she needs? Will she be able to kick the addiction?

Kevin and his soon to be wife have moved out of the Quinn’s into their own little cottage and are getting ready for their winter wedding and life seems good for them.

Ava is still in that love triangle from the last book with Scott and Nathanial. Scott is dating his colleague and Ava while Ava is dating Scott and Nathaniel. Its like she wants to have her cake and eat it too but can’t handle anyone else doing the same thing. We all know love triangles never work and eventually it will happen in this case. Thankfully Ava gets whisked away to the Caribbean and its there that she meets a handsome stranger. Could this be the start of something?

Bart is found and is coming home which makes the family happy. Everyone is excited to blessed knowing that he is safe and sound but is he really?

With a storm bearing down on the east coast can the Quinn family make it home for the holidays before its too late? Will Kelly tell his family about his newest health issues or will be keep it a secret for awhile yet?

After reading this I kept thinking there has to be another book because they can’t end like this, can they? I had to know more about Kelly and what would happen so trust me when I say this I had so many unanswered questions that I am actually hoping for a fourth book. Please let there be a fourth book.
