Review and Giveaway - Starry Night by Debbie Macomber

Im a big fan of Debbie Macomber, and I really enjoy all of her books!  I've been collecting her books for many years, and some of my favorites include her Christmas books.  So, when I got a chance to read her new book,  I jumped at the chance!  I thought Carrie was very strong and independent, and I liked the way that she went after what she wanted.  She was determined to get ahead in her job, and if that meant going to Alaska and finding a elusive author, she was ready for the challenge!
I enjoyed reading how Carrie and Finn got to know each other, and how she adapts to the Alaska wilderness.  Without giving too much of the story away...this is a book about family, love and Christmas romances...
Debbie Macomber delivers a wonderful setting and enjoyable characters for this new romantic book.  I really enjoyed it!

About the book: 
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 mega bestselling 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.
** I was given a copy of this book for my review, all opinions are mine.

About the Author:  In addition to her bestselling novels, Macomber owns her own tea room, Victorian Rose Tea Room & yarn store, A Good Yarn, named after the shop featured in her popular Blossom Street novels. She and her husband, Wayne, serve on the Guideposts National Advisory Cabinet, and she was recently named World Vision’s international spokesperson for their Knit for Kids charity initiative.
A devoted grandmother, Debbie and her husband Wayne live in Port Orchard, Washington State (the town on which her Cedar Cove novels are based) and winter in Florida.
