Great Romantic Christmassy Read.,
This review is from: Starry Night: A Christmas Novel (Paperback)
I am ashamed to say that this is the first Debbie Macomber book that I have read, and now I have finished it I could happily slap myself for missing out for so long, it definitely won't be my last.
Starry Night is your perfect mix of humor, romance and storyline. It kept me hooked from the beginning, and I have to admit I stayed up past my bedtime to finish it. If you are looking for an edge of your seat, thrill a minute type of story then this is definitely not for you. However, if you want a great story, likeable characters, and a happily ever after, with the added incentive of lots of Alaskan snow, and Christmastime thrown in, then this book is definitely for you.
I found Debbie's writing similar to that of Nora Roberts (although not as spicy if you know what I mean), the story wraps you up in its embrace, and you really feel emotionally invested in the characters and their outcome.
Carrie is the type of girl you would want to be friends with if you met her, a family orientated girl, looking to challenge herself in her job, but not willing to negotiate on her principles in order to get ahead.
I would describe Finn as a "Mountain Man", a bit surly, not looking to be sociable, but also 100% gentleman. I LOVED HIM!!! I would happily be stranded in Alaska with him for a few days; I loved his dog Hennessey as well.
Another first for me in this book was the inclusion of the word Oosik...."what is an Oosik" I hear you ask. Well let me put your out of your quandary; it's a Walrus Penis Bone. Now it's not every day you read about those in a book is it!
Read. This. Book. It will leave you with a smile on your face.
