Advent Read Day 23: Starry Night by Debbie Macomber

Welcome to Advent Reads!
This is an event I have had on my blog for several years running now.  Each evening I feature a different holiday themed book. Think of it as your Book Advent Calendar! I post a variety of holiday books including romance, children's, middle-grade, mystery, paranormal, and I try to find some that are other holiday celebrations than Christmas too. I hope you will stop by each evening to see what new book I have for you!
Synopsis: "’Tis the season for romance, second chances, and Christmas cheer with this new novel from 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 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."

My Review: Another one of Macomber's standalone holiday romances, but I think this is the best one I have read yet! I absolutely fell in love with rugged and gruff Finn, and tenacious and fearless Carrie was a great match for him. I love the way the story developed and it certainly gives those warm feels that are so perfect for the holiday season. This is definitely a book to curl up with next to your tree, and you won't want to put it down!
My Rating: I really enjoyed this one and (this doesn't happen very often at all) really wish it was a movie I could enjoy every year. It gave me all the feels I was looking for this holiday season. I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!
I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas Day surrounded by your loved ones!
