‘Starry Night’ by Debbie Macomber

st dmSTORY: ’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: My past Christmas reads have included at least one Debbie Macomber story and this one has been on my Kindle since last year, so I finally got to it.

I’m not sure why you read holiday themed books [or for that matter watch Hallmark Channel Christmas movies], but I read them for shear pleasure of it. They get me in the mood for snowy days and cold nights. They bring back memories and warm me to my toes.

I look forward to their light and inspiring content. And this is what Ms. Macomber offers in this tale, despite it being more seasonal, rather than Christmas story.

If you’re in a mood for a sweet, albeit a bit cheesy tale that will get you in the mood for the upcoming season, this read will definitely do it.

  1. I read this book a couple of years back. I distinctly remember the storyline, so the author was successful in separating herself from the herd of reads. I also felt it sweet and engaging. I’m a romantic. I met my hubby, 10 days later were connected for a lifetime. It’s been 47 years!
