Debbie Macomber’s Starry Night

Books & Poetry

Comments Print article

Debbie Macomber’s latest Christmas novel, Starry Night, is brimming with romance, schmaltz, tenderness and Hallmark moments.

Put simply, it’s another novel fans of the New York Times bestselling author will devour. The story may be as bright and fluffy as a Christmas tree and as joyful as 10 lords a-leaping with the two turtle doves predictably getting together in true love, but it’s still a nice sweet sleigh ride.

Carrie Slayton is a society reporter for the Chicago Herald who wants to be a real journalist delivering stories that really matter. When she resigns her position, her boss challenges her to get an interview with the reclusive author Finn Dalton.  She has no idea how tracking down the charismatic writer to the remote Alaskan wilderness will change her life.

Soon Carrie is following her heart. When she has to return to Chicago, absence only makes the heart grow fonder – but the reporter also faces a tough choice.

A seasonal confection, the novel overflows with yuletide comfort and joy that is bound to satisfy almost anyone who is a devotee of the romance genre or looking for a little Christmas cheer.
