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.~Synopsis from Goodreads
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.
If you don't feel like it is Christmas or you are too over worked or stressed before Christmas, this is the right kind of medicine to get you into the mood. I was sick for 2-3 weeks during Christmas and this cheered me up a lot. But a little late to talk about Christmas :P
I usually don't read romantic books and consider myself a little more mature reader for that kind of books. But once in a while you need a break, and this absolutely served its purpose.
Starry Night is a delightful and cheery book that keeps up your spirit during Christmas and I liked it very much. There was nothing unrealistic or too romantic about this. Starry Night is the love story of two people caught up in entirely different worlds and who have to decide about their future when some hard core sacrifices are required. Yes. This is not a happy-go-lucky story, but it is something definitely worth reading especially during Christmas.
