On Tour and a Giveaway! Starry Night: A Christmas Novel by Debbie Macomber

Hardcover: 256 pages
Publication date: October 8th 2013
Publisher: Ballantine Books

’Tis the season for romance, second chances, and Christmas cheer with this new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.

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.

My thoughts about Starry Night ~~

You may or may not know this about me but I love reading Christmas stories. So I jumped at the chance to read Debbie's Christmas novel. And I have to confess, right here and now, that I have never read a Macomber book before. How can that be? I have seen her books everywhere, and there are a lot of them, I have just never taken the time to read one. And isn't this cover just amazing?

Starry Night was a perfect way to give me a taste of the wonderfulness of Debbie's work. What a sweet story with wonderful characters. Oh sure, there are trials and tribulations between the characters, it's not all a bed of roses. But they get through all that and work it out.

I am so glad that I finally read one of Debbie's stories. It was wonderful to get lost in the romance of the story and to get a taste of the holidays thrown in right along with it. It definitely won't be my last Debbie Macomber story!
