Review of ‘A Nantucket Christmas’ by Nancy Thayer

Nantucket ChristmasWarning: contains spoilers.

Thanks to BookBridgr and Headline for the ARC of this book.

I don’t like to be mean about books, I certainly don’t have the skill or patience to write one, but I don’t have much good to say about this one. It reads like it was written for a five year old. It has such a simplistic approach to life.

It’s Christmas and Nicole must spend her first Christmas with her new husband’s adult daughter Kennedy. Kennedy wants her parents to get back together and therefore doesn’t like Nicole. She feels this way for 90% of the book and then a baby is born, a stray dog turns up and whoosh all of a sudden everybody’s problems are solved and they all love each other.

It is ridiculous, trite, predictable and facile and unfortunately didn’t even manage to evoke the warm festive feelings you hope for from reading this type of book.
