Starry Night by by Debbie Macomber
Starry Night is a good old fashion romance that leaves you with a smile. Had me with some good laughs over her interview with Hennessey. I think she should have printed that article.
I liked the characters, They are both stubborn, interesting people, witty and complete opposites.
They actually have conversations, plus texts and emails.
Some aspects of the story you could almost guess what would happen but her telling the story made you believe in the characters. They were true to themselves.
I have to say I don't like his gifts. They are thoughtful and unique but I would not want them. Though I did get some chuckles out of them.
I had a good time reading Starry Night. It also left me smiling. This is a clean read.
Carrie Slayton is tired of being on the society page. Her editor is not going to take her off like he promised. If he doesn't give her a chance to write meaty stories than she is going to quit.
When her editor realizes she is serious he makes her a deal. If she gets the interview with Finn Dalton she can pick her assignment. Carrie takes the deal. She has no idea who Finn Dalton is.
Fin Dalton has been on best seller list at the top for months. No one knows who he is not even his publisher. No one knows even his age that's talking. All anyone knows is he lives in Alaska and can survive by himself. Fin does not want any articles written about him. No one can find where he lives.
I was given this ebook to read and asked in exchange to give honest review of it by Netgalley.

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.
