’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.

This book had so much of what I look for in a holiday story. I love that the season was important, but it wasn't everything - it was there to be a part of the story, not the story itself. Carrie is a career driven reporter that has taken on one heck of a challenge. Finding the most sought after and ...
I was not a fan of this narrator. Her voice and affectations were very annoying to me. So it's kind of surprising I made it all the way through. The story itself was only okay. The heroine, Carrie, was another annoying journalist. Some of the things she thought and did throughout the beginning wer...
