I did not realize that this was the second book in a series. While I had trouble keeping track of the relationships between characters at first, it was easy enough to settle into the book without having read the first in the series. However, I was incredibly frustrated that the book didn't have a conclusive ending. None of the myriad story threads were resolved aside from the last minute Genevieve and Isabelle arc. Further, the characters fell flat for me. They seemed like rich, petty people with rich, petty lives. While they each had token flaws, they seemed to have very little inner life outside of those flaws and their otherwise idyllic lives. This book was neither campy enough to be a satisfying soap, nor deep enough to be a provoking story. It left me wanting less, not more.

Winter Stroll is the second of a trilogy. I have read the other two so i knew where the characters were coming from and where they were headed. Regardless of this the book did not disappoint. The Quinn family lives are full of drama and are passionate in all that they do. While some of the scenarios may be unbelievable Hilderbrand makes them realistic. A good read to follow WInter Street and to be read before Winter Storms.

This is the second book in the trilogy and was easy reading. This story takes place a year after the first book and it's Christmas again on Nantucket. The Quinns are busy getting ready for the season and they are all dealing with their own problems. The drama continues. I'm looking forward to the last book.

Enjoyed even more than first one. Faulty characters really shine here - not one is perfect, but they are all doing their best and pull through when the going gets tough. Ditzy Mitzi is my favourite. A bit of an unresolved situation leaves you hanging and waiting for the third in this trilogy.

A good soapy read for this sentimental time of year!

The Quinn family is back with all the emotion, drama and intrigue of a Hallmark Channel holiday movie (and I mean that in the best possible way). Every character has their fair share of heartache that they must mask to make it through the annual 'Winter Stroll' which takes place on beautiful Nantucket Island during the Christmas holiday season. I read this book as quickly as I read the first and am looking forward to (hopefully) getting a satisfying ending when the third and final book in the Winter Street trilogy is presumably published next year.

For all of us with less than perfect lives - a great sequel to the first book.
