Starry Night is a sweet, warm holiday/Christmas based story. What else do we expect from the queen of tender romance writing, Debbie Macomber.




It all begins a few weeks before Thanksgiving, when Carrie Slayton, society page journalist a big Chicago based newspaper, gets challenged by her boss to get an interview with Alaskan wilderness author Finn Dalton. The elusive author has refused any interviews since his book hit #1 best seller. If Carrie pulls off this interview her boss told her she has her pick of assignments.




Carrie gives up her Thanksgiving holiday time with her family to track down Dalton. She never expects the younger vibrant man she encounters. Getting snowed in gives them plenty of time to really get to know each other and both are reluctant to part. Finn asks Carrie to give up her interview and keep his privacy, now Carrie must decide between her career and the man she thinks could hold her heart.




I found Starry Night an absolutely wonderful and utterly delightful story. The characters develop a sweet and tender relationship that is refreshingly genuine. If you are looking for a cute holiday season love story, Starry Night is the perfect book for you.




I received this ARC copy of Starry Night from Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication October 8, 2013.

Ripoff

The review of book says it is 256 pages, and the actual page count is 152 with 9 of those pages give over to excerpts from another book. I was not worth paying $7.99 for.

    No plot and no character development

    No plot & no character development. Lots of minor conflicts that were easily & perfectly resolved every single time. The Alaskan survivalist left the cabin a couple of times but we have no idea what he was doing otherwise there really wasn't a survivalist point to the story line. It could have been a good story if the author would have taken some time with it instead of mass producing books. Save your time & money.

    RipOff

    This book was 140 pages of repetition. It started off pretty good and then just started repeating . I feel robbed. Not worth one dollar..

    Starry Night is trite. The story is extremely predictable and has very little substance. It is also not realistic if you have ever lived in Alaska.

    Not my cup of tea

    This is the first Debbie Macomber novel I've read and likely my last. The plot was minimal to none, the characters were okay at best. The change in the male lead from loner to in-love made no sense, no struggle or event to change him; just luckily for her the right girl I guess. It was just a very plain and boring read.

    Disappointing.

    Apparently, if you've read one MacComber novel, you've read them all. Don't waste your money, this one is the same as the rest.
