Snowy days, steamy nights.
The Walshes are home for the holidays.
Series: The Walsh Series #8
Author: Kate Canterbary
Release Date: December 14, 2017
‘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.

Kate Canterbary doesn’t have it all figured out, but this is what she knows for sure: spicy-ass salsa and tequila solve most problems, living on the ocean–Pacific or Atlantic–is the closest place to perfection, and writing smart, smutty stories is a better than any amount of chocolate. She started out reporting for an indie arts and entertainment newspaper back when people still read newspapers, and she has been writing and surreptitiously interviewing people—be careful sitting down next to her on an airplane—ever since.
Kate lives on the water in New England with Mr. Canterbary and the Little Baby Canterbary, and when she isn’t writing sexy architects, she’s scheduling her days around the region’s best food trucks.

The Walshes are home for the holidays! And Christmas is nothing short of spectacular when this bunch of merry people spend the holidays together. I’ve always been a fan of the Walsh family ever since I’ve read the first book, Underneath it All.
And can I just say that my inner fan girl is jumping with glee for this super awesome read? This is one great Christmas gift for all of those who are a fan of the Walsh series. I loved how each chapter focuses on one character’s POV and their holiday mishaps. Their get-together was made even more special with the holiday season as a background story.
I love how Kate Canterbary never shies away from portraying her characters with real emotions. I love seeing Riley’s vulnerable panicky side, Patrick who’s second-guessing himself, Matt’s craziness as an expectant father, Acevedo and Erin for showing that a strong LDR works, Sam and Tiel rekindling their steamy romance, and Shannon and Will’s ball-busting banter. Everything about this family is just so wonderful and funny that I find myself transported into their lives in Boston the moment I started reading the first chapter.
It was always such a treat to be able to have a glimpse of every Walsh family member. They have their own little mishaps along the way but at the end of the day, all is well. I also loved how we get to see Judy and the Commodore’s story in Thresholds. Since the Walsh family already adopted them as their very own parental figures, there was absolutely no doubt that they’re in for some crazy holiday adventure. Plus, Judy and the Commodore’s shenanigans are hilarious. I mean, who would have thought right?
This is probably one of the best holiday novellas I have ever read! I read it the minute I got my hands on my ARC copy. It made me love the characters even more and I can’t wait for more of Kate’s books so I can (hopefully) check in on my fave fictional family.
