Starry Night
by Debbie Macomber

Carrie has the chance to write more serious columns for the newspaper, on the condition that she first tracks down and interviews reclusive author Finn Dalton.

A journalist determined to move her career forward and write about more meaningful topics than her current column allows, Carrie makes an honest effort to track down a man that doesn’t want to be found. She asks around, calls in some favors, and with luck on her side finds herself in a remote part of a frozen Alaska. Even luckier, Finn doesn’t send her away when he shows up at his door.

I liked the story until the end of Carrie’s stay in Alaska. After that point, this romance is crazy. Falling hard after their brief time together, Carrie and Finn struggle to find the compromise between them that suits both their careers and personal lives. I liked the plot overall, but this is another case of two people who barely know each other but are quickly swept up with one another and act like they’ve been together for years. Although one character does call out Carrie on this fact, so I appreciate the self-awareness.

A wintery, whirlwind romance, this is a fun read if you don’t mind a fast-forming romance.
