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.
I just love Ms. Macomber’s books. She has a way of writing a story that you can just get lost in which what is happened to me here. I was only going to read for about 10 minutes when I lost track of time. An hour and a half later I looked up and realized I was already over half finished with this lovely romance.
Carrie Slayton wants to be more than a society-page columnist. So her boss finally gives her a chance. What she has to do is find the elusive Finn Dalton and get an interview with him. Well after searching high and low she finally finds him in the remote Alaskan wilderness.
Finn’s mother left him when he was little and it scarred him emotionally. After living in Alaska all his life he has some wonderful stories about surviving in the wilderness. What he never realized is that his book will be such a hit and that reporters would try to find him. Now Carrie has shown up at his door and because of the weather is stuck in his cabin for a few days. Carrie slowly begins to understand Finn and starts to fall for him…
This was a sweet and delightful romance that takes place during the Christmas season. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I think it is a must read this Holiday season!
