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.
