Starry Night

Starry Night
Debbie Macomber

Starry Night

Genre: Christmas Romance

Summary (from Goodreads): ’Tis the season for romance, second chances, and Christmas cheer with this new novel from Debbie Macomber.

Carrie Slayton, a big-city society-page columnist, longs to write more serious news stories. So her editor hands her a challenge: She can cover any topic she wants, but only if she first scores the paper an interview with Finn Dalton, the notoriously reclusive author.

Living in the remote Alaskan wilderness, Finn has written a mega-bestselling memoir about surviving in the wild. But he stubbornly declines to speak to anyone in the press, and no one even knows exactly where he lives.

Digging deep into Finn’s past, Carrie develops a theory on his whereabouts. It is the holidays, but her career is at stake, so she forsakes her family celebrations and flies out to snowy Alaska. When she finally finds Finn, she discovers a man both more charismatic and more stubborn than she even expected. And soon she is torn between pursuing the story of a lifetime and following her heart.

Filled with all the comforts and joys of Christmastime, Starry Night is a delightful novel of finding happiness in the most surprising places.

Review: Debbie Macomber's books are always sweet, heart warming, and full of Christmas cheer, and this one is no exception.  So why the average rating?  I guess I had a hard time buying that two such polar opposites would be attracted to each other after finding themselves stuck together for a short period of time.  I couldn't help wondering whether they would actually be happy living together for the long term.  I guess I'm too realistic and not a sappy romantic anymore.

Rating: 3 stars (for a romance)
