Review: Starry Night By: Debbie Macomber

Starry Night: A Christmas NovelStarry Night: A Christmas Novel by Debbie Macomber
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay, I will have to admit firstly that I am a sentimental sucker come holiday time and no holiday season can come without Debbie Macomber.
A stand alone romance, Starry Night, does not disappoint fans or those looking for the spirit of the holiday romance genre. Carrie Slayton, page six reporter for Chicago Herald is done with art openings and parties, she wants to put her skills to real journalism - the only way get the ungettable, an interview with best selling author and recluse, Finn Dalton.
Finn has spent his life in the Alaskan wilderness, wrote a book, and kept his privacy (thanks to some great friends), but when a reporter lands at his door and is stranded during a snowstorm, something inside him begins to melt. Sparks fly and wounds are exposed as two different people fall in love and re-enter the "real" world, some tests are played and long overdue mending is done - but Christmas is the time of miracles and Macomber.
By no means is this a "smart" book, this is a feel good book, a (dare I call it) hallmark feeling book, one that brings everything right with the world. Why would I give it 5 stars - because, for what it is, it is well written, it is fun, it has drama and you look at your decorated tree, cozy into your chair with some cocoa and a warm blanket, this is the book to have in your hand to enjoy the evening with.
