Kirkus Interview
Elin Hilderbrand
October 13, 2015

In Winter Stroll, a sequel to last year's holiday novel Winter Street, Elin Hilderbrand improves on the first by delving deeper into the emotional lives of the Quinn clan. Christmas on Nantucket finds Winter Street Inn owner Kelley Quinn and his family busily preparing for the holiday season. Though the year has brought tragedy, the Quinns have much to celebrate: Kelley has reunited with his first wife Margaret, Kevin and Isabelle have a new baby; and Ava is finally dating a nice guy. But when Kelley's estranged wife Mitzi shows up on the island, along with Kevin's devious ex-wife Norah and a dangerously irresistible old fling of Ava's, the Inn is suddenly overrun with romantic feuds, not to mention guests. “Although some of the Quinns' problems are resolved, many are not, happily promising a third installment next year,” our reviewer writes.
