Abstract:

"'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"--

"Carrie Slayton is a successful gossip columnist, but her dream is to become a serious journalist. Finnegan Dalton is a notorious recluse whose book about living in the Alaskan wilds skyrocketed to the top of the New York Times bestseller list. Recognizing a golden opportunity, Carrie uses a little guile in tracking down Finn's whereabouts in the snowy Alaskan wilderness outside of Fairbanks, only to discover that he truly is as mysterious and withdrawn as his reputation suggests. As she grows closer to finding out who Finn really is, Carrie will have to decide whether to respect his wishes by abandoning the story that would make her career, and Finn will have to decide whether he can open his heart again"--
