Elin Hilderbrand made a paper angel ornament in third grade that is still in her family's custody. She celebrates the holidays by making batches of homemade mustard and chive pine nut dip and gifting them to her lucky friends. Her favorite carol is O Holy Night. Winter Street is her fourteenth novel.
"Just as the Quinns are about to converge for the year's most stressful holiday, Kelley walks into Room 10 and finds Mitzi in the arms of the man they've hired to play Santa Claus. From there, we're off to the dysfunctional family derby, with bottomless eggnog and evergreen garlands galore."--Elisabeth Egan, New York Times
