Starry Night Book Review


Before I almost exclusively read Christian fiction, I would enjoy an occasional romance. I found Debbie Macomber through her Navy series. I was thrilled to again find her when I began to review Christian Literature. Having thoroughly enjoyed her Blossom Street Series, she has become one of my favorite authors. Of all of the authors I enjoy, Macomber is the only one whose new releases I always make plans to purchase. That being said, imagine how thrilled I was when approached with a request to review Starry Night: A Christmas Novel.

In Starry Night, Carrie is a reporter who has higher aspirations. Stuck in the society pages, she desperately wants to write about meatier subjects. On a dare, she sets out to find an elusive author with the hopes that an exclusive interview will pave the way toward meeting her lofty goals. Little did she expect she would fall for the gruff Finn Dalton. Once she returns to Chicago, they pine for each other, and conduct a long distance romance via telephone and emails. Ultimately, as with most romances, the couple experiences adversity and then miraculously get back together for a happily-ever-after ending.

As I stated earlier, I am a huge Debbie Macomber fan. Starry Night, in my humble opinion, seemed to be rushed. The characters and story were not as well developed as in the Blossom Street series, and I did not enjoy it as much as those or her other books. That being said, it was still a Macomber novel and I did still like it. I passed the book along to someone who reads a lot of Amish fiction and also romances--not normally a Macomber fan--and she loved it.

Recommendation: If you like romances that follow the typical boy and girl find each other, face adversity, come together for happily-ever-after then you will probably like this book.

Starry Night is available from online retailers such as Amazon.com
