How, exactly, is one supposed to find the words for a book that captivated them so much, that one more chapter became all the chapters, and 10pm became 1am?
I have no idea. But I’m going to try. Bear with me, okay? My fangirl is on a short leash and I don’t really have that much restraint . . .
The book is Thresholds by Kate Canterbary. That right there should tell you something—this book is witty, winning and Walshy. Three of my absolute favorite things. It’s a journey through the holidays with this eclectic, eccentric and electric family, and there’s not a single, solitary thing about it I would change.
The multiple POVs, the Christmas shenanigans, the growly, bitey boys, the smart, sassy women. All of it—perfect. As always, when it comes to Ms. Canterbary, the writing is stellar and the story completely and uttering engaging. Thresholds is a treat—a Christmas surprise—for readers of the Walsh series and it might just be my favorite holiday-themed book yet.
Guys, I cannot recommend this series enough. I’ve said it again and again and again, to more people than I can remember: these books, all of them, are MUST READS. They’re like the literary version of your favorite food, or your best jeans, or your warmest blanket, or your favorite cocktail—something you crave in all kinds of moments for all kinds of reasons; something that makes you happy just by being exactly what it it. Your favorite.
So, there you have it. My best attempt at explaining the why and the how of my love for Thresholds. And not just for Thresholds—for this series and its author, too.
“I still can’t believe it.”
“Believe what? That I know all of your defensive maneuvers?”
“That you’re mine.”

As with all Walsh books, we get a good look at the whole family as we read, but Kate has taken it to a new level, giving us perspectives from each family member (even getting Judy and The Commodore) throughout the book. That’s right, we get chapters told by each of them! While we have the overall look at an epic Walsh Christmas, we get yet another peek into each of the characters’ lives and the struggles and successes they hold.
This book fulfills a few of my Walsh wishlist items (I know, I know my list is a bit long!) and leaves me with an even longer list than before. As always, the writing is smart and engaging in a way only Canterbary can pull off. The characters are true to form and the highlights abound. There were so many snort moments right along with the tears. It was funny, touching, and sexy all wrapped up in one perfectly wrapped present.
If you are new to the Walsh world, this is book eight in the series. You really need to go back and read the rest of the series before you get to Thresholds to truly enjoy it in all its glory, but trust me, that is a gift in and of itself!
My recommendation? Buy it, buy it now! You won’t be disappointed, unless of course you count the disappointment of it not continuing on forever...
Thresholds gives us a bird's eye view of the "what happens after" the siblings have all seemed to have found their footing, their significant others, the life's purpose. Is it smooth sailing? Probably not...life usually has a few pitfalls along the way.
It is difficult to tell you about the book without spoiling some wonderful revelations that are not in the previous books. But I can say that Shannon and Will have "extensive conversations", Sam and Tiel find their "after baby" selves again, Patrick and Andy find themselves in tight quarters both physically and emotionally, Matt and Lauren find their groove, Nick and Erin fall more in love despite distance, Riley & Alex are definitely in the honeymoon phase still and Judy and the Commodore? Well they just love singing competitions. Shopping for Christmas gifts will never, ever be the same and family dinners are as they have always been, full of chaos and surprises and an ending that had me saying What the what? We also meet and learn about other characters that have me going hmmmmmmmmmmm.
An amazing story all around that as always leaves me begging for more.
