Summary
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
Summary
"From the lighthouse sporting a huge wreath to the Christmas Stroll along its quaint streets, holidays on Nantucket are always magical. However, while the town might be aglow like a scene from Dickens tale, unfortunately for newly married island newcomerNicole Somerset, Christmas means a dreaded visit from her step-daughter. Headstrong Kennedy brings with her a family of her own--husband Archer and adorable 3 year old son, Maddox--but Kennedy's yet to get over her parents' divorce. Pregnant and highly emotional, in an attempt to reconcile her father and mother, Kennedy sets in motion a scheme to sabotage Nicole's meticulous holiday preparations. When Kennedy's glamorous mother appears on the Somerset doorstep, Kennedy thinks her devious plan might just work. Holidays may be a perfect time for reconciliation, but they are also known for miracles. Even before the gifts are unwrapped, other visitors will make unexpected appearances and sweet little Maddox gets his most fervent Christmas wish"--
