***If you have not read the previous books in this series, do not bother reading this one. You really need to read the first three to enjoy this book.

This is the fourth book in the series and the last in the Winter series. Most books work as a stand alone novel when I have not read the previous ones. This one did not. I have not read the previous books in this series and I absolutely believe that if I had read those books, I would have enjoyed this book more. I can only say that if you have not read the previous books in this series, do so prior to reading this book!

The winter solstice is approaching as the Quinn Family gathers for the holidays. One of their family members has a terminal illness and will not be around much longer. The family gathers to say goodbye and to begin new paths of their lives. I found the ending to be emotional even though I did not know all of the characters well or their history.

Even though I have not read the other books in this series, I found the book to be a fast read. I wished I had read the other books as I felt there was something lacking. I am sure that fans of this series were happy (yet saddened) with the ending. The writing was solid and the pacing was good. The story had redemption, a war hero returning hone and coping with PTSD and survivors guilt, there is romance, a chance for new beginnings, a chance to say goodbye, and a chance to be a family.

I received a copy of this book from Little, Brown and Company and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
