I absolutely loved this book! A charming romantic story that I couldn’t put down. Definitely worth a try and it’s a short read.

I love a good romance, but I rolled my eyes so much that I think I pulled an eye muscle.

Read this book when it was -15 out and around Christmas. Perfect cheesy romance novel to keep you warm and cozy through the long winter.

Even though it's a bit predictable, I loved Finn's character and that it was partially set in Alaska. Not too Christmasy, just enough to make me feel some love and holiday cheer.

This was a charming romance with a Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday setting. Finn and Carrie are both well developed characters, and you cheer for the their relationship. Starry Night is a fun light book for the holidays and fans of Hallmark Christmas movies.

When Carrie threatens to resign her job at the newspaper, her boss makes a deal with her. If Carrie can find Finn, the popular but elusive writer of outdoor adventure books, her boss will allow her to move from society page editor to become a serious reporter. And Finn never dreamed his first novel would captivate readers. He wants to remain secluded in the wild, away from reporters looking for an interview. Highly motivated, Carrie heads to the back country of Alaska in search of Finn. Carrie must decide if happiness is in the job she’s dreamed of, or something else entirely. I especially liked the descriptions of the Alaskan wild, the vast endless snow, and the starry, midnight blue sky.

Debbie did a great job in her character and plot development. The Alaskan, Chicago, and Washington St. settings add a touch of travel and variety to the story. There was one scene that contained two words I thought could have been avoided and replaced with more comical substitutions. However, like her other stories, Debbie does a great job in encouraging and uplifting her audience. (Personally, I would rate her angelic intervention stories a little higher because of the comical twists and the more inspirational tone involved in those particular books.) "Starry Night" would probably not be considered a very fast paced novel, but it is very enjoyable. Overall, this is a great Christmas read!

A good, heart warming story that I found myself smiling while I read. Ended too fast for my liking, however now I can move onto another one of Debbie Macomber's books.
