Description
In this enchanting holiday novel from New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer, family and friends gather on Nantucket for a gorgeous winter wedding with plenty of merry surprises in store. As Christmas draws near, Felicia returns to her family's home on the island to marry her adventurous, rugged boyfriend, Archie. Every detail is picture-perfect for a dream wedding: the snow-dusted streets, twinkling lights in the windows, a gorgeous red and white satin dress. Except a lavish ceremony is not Felicia's dream at all; it's what her mother, Jilly, wants. Jilly's also worried that her daughter's life with daredevil Archie will be all hiking and skydiving. Wondering if their handsome neighbor Steven Hardy might be a more suitable son-in-law, Jilly 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. With the family careening toward a Yuletide wedding disaster, an unexpected twist in Nancy Thayer's heartwarming tale reminds everyone about the true meaning of the season. Praise for An Island Christmas "A wonderful contemporary novel with lovable, sweet characters . . . [Nancy] Thayer weaves a magical Christmas story with the description of the island and its history without being over the top." -- RT Book Reviews "For fans of domestic fiction, Thayer vividly depicts the joys and frustrations of family life against the beautiful Nantucket backdrop." -- Library Journal "Filled with the quintessential chaos of a family full of characters and unexpected scenarios that keep you on your toes, you'll love curling up with this holiday novel that reminds you what the season truly celebrates." -- Spa Week Daily
