Publisher's Summary

'Tis the season for romance, second chances, and Christmas cheer with this new audiobook from #1 New York Times best-selling author 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 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. 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.

    "Brings me back"

    I first stumbled on Audio Books through iTunes and my first reads were Debbie Macomber and her Midnight Sons Series. I have dreamed about being in the Alaska Wilderness most of my life, Ms Macomber took me there in the Midnight Sons series. She also hooked me on audio books I discovered Audible and have been an avid listener ever since.
    Starry Night brought me back to Hard Luck AK it was a riveting love story with an I can not put this down quality. I will reacquaint myself with Hard Luck since it has been over a year since I lost myself in those pages. I hope that Ms Macomber continues the story with Finn Dalton and add more of the Hard Luck AK characters.
    Love my Audible

    "Terrible Christmas story"
    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.

    "This Story Is So Predictable"

    Some times you are just wanting something a little different - well this isn't it. This is not one of Debbie's best books or middle as far as that is concerned. A few more twist and turns would have helped.

    "Sweet, Enjoyable Read"

    What a sweet story. This book definitely does what the author wanted it to do … it leaves the reader with a smile on their face and a good feeling in their heart. It is a simple, well written story. Although you know what is going to happen since the story is predictable, you just enjoy the ride getting there. Debbie Macomber does know how to write a story and she did a good job with this one. I gave this book 4 stars since I only give 5 stars to the best of books; but I would definitely recommend this for a quick, enjoyable read.

    "A Feel Good Story"

    This a good book....all around feel good story; predictable in places but light easy reading that helped make my commute bearable.
    If you need a break from heavier things; reading, work, life - this is your book; restored my faith that there is still a place for simple, good love stories. Ahhhhhh

    "Love Debbie Macomber books!"
    Where does Starry Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Starry Night was a great book that kept me engrossed in the story to the point I didn't want the commute to end and that's saying alot while sitting in LA traffic! Wish the story had actually been a little longer with a few more characters just to keep it going.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are interesting and you find yourself rooting for them along the way!


    What about Rebecca Lowman’s performance did you like?

    Rebecca is able to easily toggle back and forth beween male and female voices in a very believable way,


    If you could rename Starry Night, what would you call it?

    Starry Night is a good title but would probably remove "a Christmas Novel" since it's not a traditonal Christmas story.
