NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

’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 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.

Overall Review:  

Starry Night is the perfect read to usher in some holiday cheer! New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Debbie Macomber crafts a feel-good Christmas tale every year and calls this year's Night "a romance, plain and simple". Main characters Carrie and Finn are extremely likable and it was easy to picture the two enjoying the vivid Alaskan setting. The book has a wonderful message of love and happiness. With an intriguing premise and excellent pacing, Night can easily be finished in an afternoon. Since this is such a refreshingly romance, I've already recommended it to family and friends. Snuggle up with Starry Night this Christmas season!
