’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.

The Book Goddess, October 10, 2013 (view all comments by The Book Goddess)
I received a copy of this story from the publisher via NetGalley.com in exchange for an honest review.

First, this is the first Debbie Macomber book that I have read and I ask myself, "What took so long to discover this author?!" This book is labeled a holiday romance, but it was so much more than that. Ms. Macomber developed interesting and endearing characters in Carrie and Finn, as well as delivering a wonderful supporting cast. I read a lot of romances, but what set this one apart, was the way the author absolutely captured the magic of falling in love with your true match. So many romances rely on the physical attraction, which of course this one has in spades, but the story also focuses on the emotional and intellectual connection between Carrie and Finn. At one point, Carrie mentions that she is obviously physically attracted (but as we know that can fade), she also mentions their shared values. I found this rather striking and unique in this genre, as that piece is often overlooked and it leaves me wondering if my leads would really live happily ever after. The book is also set in Chicago, Seattle and Alaska (all places I have lived). Ms. Macomber managed to make me fall in love with not only Carrie and Finn, but Fairbanks, Alaska. The rugged landscape and the unbelievable cold are balanced with the magic of the clear night skies, the shining stars and the wonder that is the Northern Lights. Plus, not to be overlooked, this is a Christmas story, that covers Thanksgiving and Christmas...which is truly my favorite part of the year and the perfect backdrop for this story. This story requires you to curl up on your couch, wrapped in a warm blanket with hot chocolate and just settle in, because you aren't going to want to put it down. I honestly think I swooned while reading about some of the romantic, though unorthodox, gestures from Finn. If you love manly men with a romantic streak, Finn is your guy. Read this book and meet one of the best couples I have read about in a long time.

I have been reading Debbie Macomber books for years and I have a large collection I love to reread her books especially her Christmas Books which I start read and rereading after Thanksgiving. After reading Starry Night first chapter I'm hooked it will definately be my next book purchase when it comes out Oct 8. I love how Debbie's books make you feel like you are right there watching the relationships grow and develope and also like with her Cedar Cove series that you are right there in the town which makes we hope someday my Husband and I can some day really take a vacation to visit Port Orchard.
