Synopsis

’Tis the season for romance, second chances, and Christmas cheer with this new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author 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 megabestselling 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

Carrie Slayton was tired of her job reporting on the social page.  She was thinking about leaving her job in Chicago and moving home to Seattle where her family lives.  Her boss told her if she got a story from Finn Dalton, who is a famous author who nobody knows anything about, she could have any job she wanted.  Carries sets out to search for Dalton and get the story that will launch her career.  Carrie is a very determined woman and has a fiery spirit.  She manages to get a lead on him and heads to Alaska.  She expects to fly in and get her story then fly back out.  It should be quick and easy.  But, if it was that quick and easy then that would be the end of the story.  When you add a stubborn, good-looking, and taciturn man who values his privacy, nothing is ever simple or easy.

Debbie Macomber writes stories that drag your emotions through the wringer.  She creates a story and people that feel so real that you can relate to them on a personal level.  She doesn’t need to write stories that are full of sex to get the story sold.  The story sells itself.  Ive always been a fan of her books since I was young.  It was a pleasure and joy to read and review this one.
