    5 sun kissed take me to the beach stars Elin Hilderbrand heard the silent sobbing of her devoted readers after she ended the Winter Street series and has rewarded us by creating a new trilogy series set in the Virgin Islands; specifically St John. Irene Steele, second cousin to Winter Street's Mitzi Quinn, is at 57 facing a lot of challenges. It's the end of another year, her employer wants her to retire, her husband, Russ, is away on business,...

This was FANTASTIC!I've got to go back to all her previous series and get going here! ;).I fell in love with everything about this book.

    If you’re anything like me and were super sad when Hilderbrand’s last series came to an end then I’m sure you’re going to fall in love with this new series as well. Per usual the characters are immediately relatable and feel like fast friends and the setting is idyllic. It’s a departure for the author, it’s not set in Nantucket but in St. John and I’m currently trying to figure out how to talk my husband into taking me there for our...

    Last year after reading the last book in Elin Hilderbrand's "Winter Street" series I felt happy because the book was just so wonderful yet a bit heartbroken because although I love and adore my favorite queen of the summer beach read, her "Winter Street" books have always been my favorites. That is until now. Those books have huge competition for favorites after I just finished the first book in her newest series, Winter in Paradise! If the ne...

    Release Date: October 9, 2018 Genre: Women's Fiction Actual Rating: 4 starsElin Hilderbrand has quickly become a favorite author of mine. Her books have originality, relatable characters, and tackle real life issues (for the most part). Her writing style is also my favorite. She weaves her stories though the eyes of several different characters so readers can get a glimpse of everyone and everything involved in whatever is happening. I can't r...

    Elin Hildebrand signature style of writing & a Caribbean island - what is not to love?! I devoured this book in one day and loved every single page. My only regret is now I need to wait a year for book two in this amazing Paradise series! When Irene receives a middle of the night call informing her her husband has died on St. John USVI, she is baffled - what was her husband doing there?! Irene along with her two sons, Cash & Baker (who both have ...

    Hilderbrand is out of Nantucket and into the Caribbean. Winter in Paradise is written in her classic style and I loved every bit of it. The characters have heart and are immediately likeable, though brothers Cash and Baker come off as little, bratty siblings though they are grown men. Actually, to be honest, that is exactly what they are. Holding grudges since college, these two will undercut each other at every chance given. Especially when it c...

    We start the "Winter in Paradise" series on New Year’s Day, the first day of a whole new year, laid out before us, untouched, as if each day comes in a shiny bag, to be selected one by one like candy. Irene Steele of Iowa City, Iowa starts her day in her beloved Victorian style home, all fully refurbished and redecorated, thanks to the generous income from her husband’s Russ’s job of the last thirteen years, she encouraged him to accept. Un...

    Irene and her sons travel from Iowa to the Caribbean where her husband has died in a helicopter crash but what they find shakes them to their cores. This is the start of a new series with newly created characters and instead of Hilderbrand's usual Nantucket, it is set on St. John. As usual, the characters are appealing (except her sons could be a little on the annoying side) and the intrigue about her husband's death and the family dynamics kept ...

    My feelings about this book have truly shocked me. I absolutely loved Elin’s last Winter books so to say I was excited about this new series is an understatement. Unfortunately, for me, this story was way over the top and at times a bit boring. Irene Steele is celebrating New Years Eve at home alone and receives the worst news anyone can ever get— her husband, who is away on business, has died in a plane accident. When facts about the acciden...

    4.5 Stars!!!!Ladies and gentlemen, Elin Hilderbrand has done it again. In Winter in Paradise, Hilderbrand delivers a page-turning, deliciously juicy tale chock full of lies, deceit, and passion with a side of sun, sand and refreshing cocktails. I have to admit, I wasn’t sure I was going to love this novel as much since it’s Elin’s first trip away from Nantucket Island. I LOVE Elin’s Nantucket. It’s a truly special treat to travel there ...

    Winter in Paradise by Elin HilderbrandStarts out where all are stateside based. There are many and they don't appear to be connected til you read further.Wish there was a list of characters at the start-feel lost.Love the details, very descriptive of the island and the culture...Like how everyone is connected and you learn over time just how close they are. Liked being on island time and how the tourists adjust.Love hearing of the different jobs ...

    Tl;dr: Another outstanding contemporary from Elin Hilderbrand--a smashing start to a trilogy.Winter in Paradise is so good! How good is it? Well, I hate beaches, get a sunburn if I'm outside for twenty minutes on a cloudy day, and yet Ms. Hilderbrand has me convinced that I would have fun in St John's. Yep. That good Winter in Paradise has something for every fan of contemporary women's fiction-- well written, relatable characters, a bit of house...

    Gosh. I’m so torn on this one. I’m a big fan of this author but this one just kind of missed the mark for me. I found the love triangle part really annoying and unlikely. I mean… both brothers fell head over heels in love with this girl immediately? And am I really supposed to believe that a day trading pothead from Houston would use the words “unwashed floozy”? Honestly both brothers seem like jackasses to me.Also I feel like there was...

    Thanks to the publisher, via Netgalley, for an advance e-galley for an honest review.It's not quite right to describe a book as a "pleasure" when it centers around devastating deaths and secrets, but getting the opportunity to visit a new island with Elin Hilderbrand, who has built a career writing about islands in a way that makes them feel like additional, beloved characters, is a treat. This is the kind of heartfelt, juicy, dramatic story that...

    Hilderbrand's books just get better and better and better (and they were REALLY good to start, years ago). Winter in Paradise is book number one in her new series. This one, Winter in Paradise, is irresistible. I could not stop reading it, read most of it in one sitting, and then finished it up the next day. It's a mystery (though not a thriller, and there is no violence) along the lines of Anita Shreve's The Pilot's Wife. This theme has been don...

    Elin Hilderbrand is an automatic read for me. I hate waiting all year for her new summer novel so I'm super excited that she now writes a Winter series as well. Winter in Paradise is the start of her new Winter series. Irene Steele is the cousin of our friend Mitzy in the 1st Winter series and we all loved the Quinn family, as flawed as they were. The Steeles are no exception. Irene receives a phone call at her husband is dead and that he was on ...

    Elin Hilderbrand has taken us from her usual Nantucket settings to the Virgin Islands for her newest offering, Winter in Paradise.What do you think you'd feel if everything you thought about your life, your marriage, and your world, was a lie? That's the question Irene considers when she's informed her husband has died in a helicopter crash, accompanied by a women Irene didn't know existed on an island she never knew her husband had visited.

    Thank to you NetGalley for this ARC of Winter in Paradise. As much as I loved this book, I am very frustrated by how long it is going to take to get the next book in this series. It never fails that I really just want to keep reading and know the family's that Elin Hilderbrand gives us. This book doesn't disappoint for Elin's fans. Little by little she doles out information for these new characters that we are learning about. And before long you ...

We meet Irene who loves her life and has everything she has wanted except more time with her husband who works so much for all they have.

    The Winter Street series was the only other books by Elin Hilderbrand that I read, which I really enjoyed! This new series is starting off great! I loved the characters and wanted to know what was going to happen with each of them. It was a quick read and the plot moved along at a great pace. I can't wait for the next books!

    I absolutely loved this book and immediately got into the characters. They were relatable and in the end, I wanted to read more. A cliffhanger! Cannot wait for the next one to come out. Love, suspense, and a distant location made this a great read. And it did not matter that the location was set in a tropical area one bit.

    Elin’s characters pull you in make you want to read more. I was a little nervous since this one does not take place on Nantucket, however it has the same charm and fills you with the desire to visit as all her other novels. This novel did not disappoint and I can’t wait to read more!
