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 & 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.

I look forward to a new holiday novel by Debbie Macomber every year and this fall is no exception. Starry Night brings together many of Macomber’s favorite settings, both Seattle and Alaska are represented in this breezy romance between newspaper reporter Carrie Slayton and reclusive author Finn Dalton. Promised any story she wants after two years of toiling on the society pages of a Chicago daily, Carrie’s editor challenges her to procure an interview with bestselling author Finn Dalton. Finn, however, values his privacy and doesn’t want to be found. Carrie digs deep and with her ties to the Pacific Northwest, is able to uncover a way to reach Finn that leads to a cabin far outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The story only takes place over the time of several weeks, but Macomber’s rich descriptions of the land and easy dialogue between the characters make the most insurmountable obstacle (present in any good romance!) seem doable. What seems like a very straightforward romance becomes a tender holiday story in Macomber’s capable hands.

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.

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

Just delightful. I’ve missed Debbie Macomber’s books about the Alaska men. This book has no nefarious plots, abductions or intrigue – just a really sweet love story. I loved it and so will you.

It was an O.K. book but certainly not one of her best. I felt you could almost determine the outcome early in the book. She is a good author and I will continue to read her books.

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.

Both main characters were emotionally immature and childish. The supporting characters are no better. The plot was expectedly simplistic and ends with the two idiots agreeing to make a go at happily ever after. If you are into that...you might enjoy it. For me it was a regrettable waste of time...not to mention money to purchase it.

I've been trying to do some light reading, summer reading that i can read without much thought. This book qualified. Carrie is a newspaper writer that needs a big break to get off the society page. Finn is a man in hiding, a best selling author who wants to be left alone. Every paper, tv show, magazine is looking to find him, but surprise, Carrie finds him. She gets snowed in with him, and they feel the sparks. (yes, you've read this same story a dozen times). They part, they come together, there is a conflict - sound familiar? There is nothing that's a surprise in this story. The writing is very light. Very light. Like, floating in the air light. If you're looking for a blah book, this is it. I did like the dog. The one smile is for the dog. One Smile.
