Starry Night by Debbie Macomber




Starry Night is another great read from Debbie Macomber.  This book had me hooked from beginning to the end.  It is a must read feel good story. My only problem was it was so good I finished it in one day.  All I can say is I want to go see the Northern Lights so I can find out if I can hear them.  You will have to read the book to find out what I am talking about.


Carrie Slayton is a journalist that feels like her talents are being wasted covering the Society section of the Chicago Sun-Times.  She decides to hand in her notice and take a chance somewhere else.  Her boss tells her that if she can track down Finn Dalton and get an interview he will take her off the society page.  Her boss knows that she will fail.  No reporter has ever been able to track Finn down and he refuses ALL interview requests.

Carrie manages to find Finn living off the grid in Alaska.  A storm hits just as she finds him, leaving her trapped with an anti social man that distrusts all women.  Finn and Carrie find themselves falling in love, feeling like they have known each other forever.  Finn asks Carrie not to write the interview even though it would be great for her career.  He thinks that she will write it.  Finn flies to Chicago to spend time with her.  He realizes that they are to different to ever have a relationship.  Finn tells her to write the article.  When Carrie's friends and family find out that she had found Finn and refused to write the article they are surprised.

Finn realizes how much he has lost in his mistrust of women and flies to Seattle knowing that Carrie is there spending time with her family for Christmas.  Finn finds out that despite the fact that he gave Carrie permission to write the article she refused.  That is when he realizes that they are meant to be together.
