Book 8, The Walshes Series
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
'Twas the weekend before Christmas, when all through the North End
Not a Walsh had his life together, not even his friends;
The parties were planned by the foodies with care,
In hopes that Wes and Erin would soon find their way there;
The men were stressing over last minute shopping lists and plans,
While the ladies were busy with work and nesting and finding the right paella pans;
When out in the dining room there arose such a clatter,
The Halsted dogs sprang from their beds to see what was the matter;
They whistled and shouted and called each other names,
While the secrets and announcements and surprises quickly came;
So onto another adventure they flew
With the sleigh full of Walshes, and the Commodore too—
As they continued arguing and clamoring around,
Down the road an unexpected visitor came with a bound;
But it wasn't long until couples were all nestled snug in their beds,
With new memories of steamy holiday nights dancing in their heads.
Fabulous Holiday Novella
I LOVED Thresholds. It was the absolute perfect book I didn't even know I needed. Every single story was just everything and I loved every word. Catching up with each couple was great but this was more than that. Most of them were working through something of their own, be it dealing with a minor blip in their relationship or adjusting to parenthood or marriage, preparing for birth, etc., there was real depth here. And the introduction of a new character from the hospital that I'm sure we will be seeing more of in Cal's book if not more than that was great too.
There were a lot of really funny moments in this book, and just as many heartfelt ones. I love how Kate can write in this imaginary world of the Walshes but bring in so many real life every day challenges and feelings without losing the magic.
If you've read the other Walsh series books, this is a MUST READ addition to the series. And if you haven't, what are you waiting for?!?!
As always Kate brings the feels! It was perfect yet I always want more! Thank you Kate!!
Merry Christmas to us
5 huge stars for - Thresholds - the eighth book in the Walsh series by Kate Canterbary. This book is NOT at all meant to stand-alone from the series instead it is described as a gift of “more” for fans of this epic family of awesomeness from Boston. Set at the most wonderful time of the year - everyone we know and love is accounted for in this full length book. We even have Justin and the Commodore as part of all the shenanigans in the North End.
With the siblings up to their usual bickering and insults flying left and right I found myself wanting to re-read the series all over again. With updates and check-in's with all the couples this is one book you won't want to miss. After all no one does Christmas like the Walsh family and this year's will be one for the history books
