Starry Night will sweep you away to a warm, cozy cabin in the middle of an Alaskan ice storm so cold it makes Chicago winters feel balmy. Don’t be surprised if you pull that wool blanket up around your neck as you read; Debbie Macomber knows how to touch all your senses and transport you into the scene, right along with the protagonist.
Carrie, a society page columnist, desperately needs to secure an interview with bestselling author Finn Dalton in order to prove to her editor that she’s worthy of receiving better assignments and advance her career. Thus far, no reporter has been able to locate the elusive author of the book Alone who is determined to preserve his privacy by avoiding the media and public attention. But Carrie is not just another reporter. After some creative investigation, Carries takes a commercial jet to Fairbanks and then persuades a small plane pilot to fly her the rest of the way to Finn’s remote location.
The pilot lands on a frozen lake, instructs Carrie to hop out, then flies away, leaving her standing in her designer boots on the slippery ice.
Quote: “Suddenly it started to snow with such ferocity that she couldn’t see more than a few feet in front of her. The wind drove it sideways, and with her head bowed she struggled against the elements until she heard what sounded like a wild beast. Looking up, Carrie squinted, and what she saw caused her heart to shoot up into her throat. It was an animal, a wolf, and he was racing toward her at an alarming pace.
“Dropping her suitcase, Carrie did the only thing she could think to do. She started running. The wind made it nearly impossible to make headway as she strained against the force of it. Then it happened. She stumbled and fell face-first onto the ice. Before she could right herself, the wolf was nearly on top of her.”
Macomber packs plenty of excitement in this romance!
How can a city girl with a busy social life and the ruggedly handsome author who lives happily with the companionship of this dog get together? Their dilemma reminds me of the saying, “A bird and a fish can fall in love, but where would the live?”
Just when you think you know how it’s all going to turn out, there’s a twist in the plot that throws everything off. I won’t spoil the surprise.
This delightful story might be just what you need to get into the holiday mood—or to escape from the stress of the season. Pick up a copy for yourself, and several more to give as gifts.
