Publisher's Summary

In best seller Elin Hilderbrand's first Christmas novel, a family gathers on Nantucket for a holiday filled with surprises.
As Christmas approaches, Kelley is looking forward to getting the family together for some quality time at the inn. But when he walks in on Mitzi kissing Santa Claus (or the guy who's playing Santa at the inn's annual party), utter chaos descends. With the three older children each reeling in their own dramas and Bart unreachable in Afghanistan, it might be up to Kelley's ex-wife, nightly news anchor Margaret Quinn, to save Christmas at the Winter Street Inn.
Before the mulled cider is gone, the delightfully dysfunctional Quinn family will survive a love triangle, an unplanned pregnancy, a federal crime, a small house fire, many shots of whiskey, and endless rounds of Christmas caroling, in this heart-warming novel about coming home for the holidays.

Interesting family drowns in drinking

Elin Hilderbrand chose Christmas to tell the story of one family and almost managed to include most of society's current issues: infidelity, illegal immigrant pregnant out of wedlock, insider trading, lying, cheating, greed, same sex partners, AIDS, Afghanistan war, drugs, infidelity again. ALL family members and friends turn to good ole' alcohol to drown their sorrows, lift their spirits, share their joy- anything calls for drinking until most pass out in a stupor. But they pray. It is as hypocritical as a story can be, trash and maybe they can all go to AA together in the next book. Do people live this way? Really.
