Summary

A Nantucket shopkeeper discovers that Christmas is the perfect occasion to make unexpected friendships, to warm the coldest of hearts--and maybe even to find love.

Christina Antonioni is preparing for the holidays at her Nantucket toy shop, unpacking last-minute shipments and decorating for her loyal Christmas shoppers. But when her Scrooge of a landlord, Oscar Bittlesman, raises her rent, it seems nearly impossible for Christina to continue business on the wharf.

Even so, Christina firmly believes there may be a warm heart underneath Oscar's steely exterior. When she bonds with Wink, his sweet, young granddaughter who frequents the shop, it becomes clear that perhaps he isn't so cold after all. And with the help of Wink's uncle, who happens to be a charming (and extremely wealthy) bachelor, this may be the best Christmas any of them could have ever imagined. Nancy Thayer's enchanting Nantucket setting provides the perfect backdrop for this holiday love story.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Christina Antonioni isn't sure how she'll get through her first Christmas after the death of her parents, until a little shoplifter changes her life. Nine-year-old Wink is bored at her grandfather's house on Nantucket. Oscar Bittlesman is rich and grouchy, and owns the property where Christina rents space for her toy store. When she catches Wink trying to steal a sticker book, she agrees to let her help in the store to make up for it. Wink's uncle, Andy Bittlesman, explains that Wink is acting out because of her parents' impending divorce, and soon Christina is showing the two of them the best Christmas spots on the island. But even as Christina and Andy are falling in love, Oscar proves that he is more interested in money than community. Good thing Christina's got a crazy bunch of fellow shopkeepers ready to take on the Grinch. An idyllic winter setting that's snow-covered and festively busy, a few low-drama romantic subplots, and a whole island's worth of ugly Christmas sweaters combine in Thayer's (Surfside Sisters, 2019) latest Nantucket novel, a Hallmark-sweet holiday story.--Susan Maguire Copyright 2010 Booklist"
