Winter Stroll by Elin Hilderbrand

It's Christmas Stroll weekend on Nantucket, and the Quinns are getting together for the festivities, as well as the baptism of son Kevin's daughter. However, two family members are not there--youngest son, Bart, is missing in Afghanistan and oldest son, Patrick, has several months left of his prison sentence for insider trading. Their absences cast a pall over the whole family. In the sequel to last year's Winter Street, Hilderbrand updates readers on the characters from the first book--this novel takes place a year after the first--but the family's stories feel not that well-developed and the ending felt too abrupt to me. Definitely a disappointment... It will be published in October.
