Starry Night by Debbie Macomber

On December 9, 2013

By Sophia Whitfield

If you are in the mood for romance this holiday season then look no further. Bestselling author Debbie Macomber has added another Christmas romance to her list with Starry Night.

Carrie Slayton is keen to move away from the society pages she currently pens. She is looking for more serious human-interest stories. Her editor hands her a challenge to find and interview reclusive author Finn Dalton. Once she proves herself Carrie’s editor promises her the promotion she is desperate to attain.

Living in remote Alaska, Finn Dalton is the bestselling author of a memoir about how to survive in the wild. No one knows exactly where he lives and he is known to actively shun the press.

Carrie starts with his mother, whom Finn no longer speaks to. Gaining insight into his character she embarks on a journey into the deep Alaska wilderness leaving her family behind for the holidays.

When she finally finds Finn, she discovers a man both more charismatic and more stubborn than she expected. Carrie is soon torn between pursuing the story of a lifetime and following her heart.

Macomber’s feel good style is evident in her latest novel as she explores the theme of second chances. Starry Night is full of holiday cheer as families come together to celebrate the festive season.
