Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand

It's Christmastime on Nantucket and the Quinn family are not looking forward to the holiday party at the family's Winter Street Inn. Owner Kelley has just walked in on his wife, Mitzi, passionately kissing Santa (aka George), whom they hire every year for their holiday party. When Mitzi reveals that they've been having an affair for the past twelve years, Kelley is stunned. Now, more than ever, he would like to sell the inn and get relief from the financial pressure he's been under. His grown daughter, Ava, despairs that her boyfriend, Nathaniel, hasn't proposed and doesn't love her as much as he should. Eldest son, Patrick, is being investigated for insider trading. Ava and Patrick's mother, Margaret, is Kelley's ex-wife, and a successful national news anchor, yet at times she regrets that she was not present enough for her children's childhoods. Finally, there is also another son, Kevin--a bartender--who has been keeping his relationship with his French girlfriend, Isabelle secret. In typical Hilderbrand style, the reader gets a front row seat to the feelings and emotions of all the members of the family as they unite and support each other in their times of need. It will be published in October.
