Nantucket Christmas: 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 newcomer Nicole 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.Island Christmas: Felicia returns to her family's home on Nantucket to marry her adventurous, rugged boyfriend, Archie. Wondering if her handsome neighbor Steven Hardy might be a more suitable son-in-law, Jilly's mother embarks on a secret matchmaking campaign for Felicia and the dashing stockbroker. As the big day approaches and Jilly's older daughter, Lauren, appears with rambunctious kids in tow, tensions in the household are high. Enter a charming but mischievous cat named Jock.… (mer)

This is two short Christmas stories in one book and just the kind of light read I would recommend for the holidays. I enjoyed both stories. I thought they were realistic and the characters likable. You can easily read one story in a sitting or take you time. That is what I love about stories like this, they hold your interest without being overwhelming. ( )

This book contains two different stories, both set at Christmas, apparently about a year apart. I didn't like Thayer's writing style in the first book. In fact, I remember asking myself, what does it say when I care more about the family who dumped Snix off in the middle of nowhere (instead of doing the right thing by keeping the pet they chose or the better thing by dropping him off at a shelter where he could possibly be adopted by someone else) than I do about any of the other characters? I was glad that the family settled their differences by the end.

The second story was a bit better though the mother who was trying to set up her soon to be married daughter with the next door neighbor was a bit over-the-top. Also, homosexual characters show up without warning. Rex (the cat) was a welcome comic relief, being both charming and full of mischief. ( )
