Read A Nantucket Christmas Online Free - Known for her heartwarming observations of family life, New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer showcases her beloved Nantucket’s snowy off-season in this emotionally gratifying and utterly entertaining story.
Holidays on this Massachusetts island are nothing short of magical, from the jolly decorations on the Brant Point lighthouse to the much anticipated Christmas Stroll, in which merrymakers promenade through quaint streets adorned with Yuletide cheer. The season’s wonderful traditions are much loved by Nicole Somerset, new to Nantucket and recently married to a handsome former attorney. Their home is already full of enticing scents of pine, baking spices, and homemade pie.
But the warm, festive mood is soon tempered by Nicole’s chilly stepdaughter, Kennedy, who arrives without a hint of holiday spirit. Determined to keep her stepmother at arms’ length—or, better yet, out of the picture altogether—Kennedy schemes to sabotage Nicole’s holiday preparations. Nicole, however, is not about to let anyone or anything tarnish her first Christmas with her new husband.
Nancy Thayer’s wonderful tale reminds us that this is the season of miracles. Before the gifts are unwrapped, surprise visitors appear, and holiday joy comes to all, both naughty and nice.

A Nantucket Christmas is the story of a boy, Maddox, meeting a dog. But before he does, Thayer tells us the individual stories of the boy and his family, and of the dog and his plight.
This book meandered and wandered, describing Nantucket in its Christmas glory, and describing the perso...

I loved this book so much that it is hard to put it into words. It is a heartwarming story that pulls you in from page one and does not let you go even after you are done. This is the fist Christmas book I have read this year and the first by Nancy and I have to say it puts you in a good mood and...

I enjoyed this quick evening read. I read a lot and was able to figure out how the story might end, but there were definitely some surprises.
Unfortunately, there is a side story to this, and it begins with the prologue. The taking of a cute puppy, loving, feeding, cuddling it. Then when it is a f...

Short, sweet, heartwarming, and cheesy in all the right ways. Just the way a Christmas book should be.

I guess the thing to do around Christmastime is to write a book that you can hype for the Christmas season.
This is a long winded bore. And a little bit weird.
Kennedy and James have a three year old son going on thirty who thinks things like, "This was awesome, too. Maddox rarely got alone time wi...

I received this book in a Goodreads giveaway.
While reading the summary of the book, I mistakenly assumed Nicole's step-daughter, Kennedy, was a spoiled child or teenager. But, no, she turned out to be a grown woman who was married, had a young child and another on the way. I have very little pati...

I really enjoyed this book. It is a fast heartwarming story. It is a story about a family, that is sadly like so many families today. The story starts out from the perspective of a dog, Snix, that has been abandoned on Nantucket by his owner. It progresses through the different perspectives of Se...
