    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 best-selling 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.

    Has Starry Night turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I love love stories and Christmas stories. This book did not hit the note on either genre for me.


    What three words best describe Rebecca Lowman’s performance?

    Performance was good


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Starry Night?

    I would edit out the parts where the author was in speaking for Finn. His reactions and thoughts never fit nor progressed the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Picked this for my book club, and changed it almost immediately. I waited til the end of the book for some really great ending, but it lacked from beginning to end. I will try Skipping Christmas instead. Hopefully that is a better, more heartwarming Christmas story.
