After two snowbound days, Carrie heads back to Chicago and her job, but neither Carrie nor Finn is ready to say goodbye, and the two begin a long-distance romance. Getting snowed in gives them plenty of time to really get to know each other and both are reluctant to part. Finn is downright hostile at times and makes it clear that he would like to preserve his privacy, so the article is a no go. Um livro que aquece o coração. Quando a Vida perde o Norte, o Amor é um Farol com garantia! This dog is huge, and at their first meeting he was out to defend his territory and scared Carrie half to death. Even more interesting, he gifts the oddest gifts an antique toaster and an oosik, which happens to be…wait for it…a walrus penis bone. Of course, they cannot possibly stay together, so she returns to her big-city job in Chicago, only to pine miserably for her mountain man.
It was too sweet, too cheesy, just a little too much of everything I wanted. At ThriftBooks, our motto is: Read More, Spend Less. Thirteen of these novels hit the number one spot. However, I'm willing to give Macomber the benefit of the doubt and say that perhaps her earliest novels were not as terrible as this one. With a token from his Mother and a ride from a piolet named Sawyer, she shows up.
However, this book didn't hit the spot for me. In 2002, Macomber realized that she wanted to write books focusing more on women and their friendships. The hero and heroine spend around 96hrs together, 48 of that is contentious. She talks to him a lot when Finn refuses to do humor her, and I loved how she was with him! She refused to be pigeonholed. It lacks the trademark angst and sensuality, but it packs a good punch of chemistry between characters. Their romance has been going really well, but Carrie's best friend, Sophie, yes, the nosy Sophie kind of drives a wedge between them and oh gosh, the plot takes a turn for the worse.
Carrie Slayton, a big-city society-page columnist, longs to write more serious news stories. I highly recommend Starry Night. I don't know why I'm giving it only 3 stars. Tis the season for romance, second chances, and Christmas cheer with this new novel fromDebbie Macomber. That decided, Carrie limped into her bedroom and fell into bed, tired, frustrated, and determined to make a change. This one will touch your heart just as much as her other Christmas stories. They definitely had their differences.
So her editor hands her a challenge first: Carrie must score the paper an interview with Finn Dalton, the notoriously reclusive author. Macomber has given us another delightful romantic story to cherish. Readers will remain firmly planted in the beginnings of a beautiful love story between two of the most unlikely characters. I have no earthly idea when they fall in love, she leaves Alaska and suddenly he is texting her and they're in a relationship. She could write whatever she wants if she discovers where the famous and reclusive Finn Dalton lives, and if she has an interview. I have no earthly idea when they fall in love, she leaves Alaska and suddenly he is texting her and they're in a relationship.
It is almost Thanksgiving, and while Carrie Slayton misses her family in Seattle, she is hoping her job at the Chicago Herald will further her career as a journalist. She loves her job, but her current position is not what she actually wants to write, and when she goes to her boss to talk about a new position, she gets a proposal that seems great-she has to find an author, who doesn't want to be found and do an interview with him-easy right?. Their road to love is a bit bumpy, but full of endearing moments, and the cold setting was great for the holidays, especially if you don't live somewhere cold yourself! It is almost Thanksgiving, and while Carrie Slayton misses her family in Seattle, she is hoping her job at the Chicago Herald will further her career as a journalist. The hero and heroine spend around 96hrs together, 48 of that is contentious. There is a little bit of romance, but no passion, a great dog Hennessy , but not much to really put you in the holiday spirit.
Debbie Macomber is my go to author when I just need a quick feel good book that usually has such a nice romance attached to it. The stor I chose this book because I wanted a light, fluffy Christmas romance to put me in the Christmas spirit.

Carrie gets a tip regarding Finn's whereabouts, and off she goes to Alaska.
Any plot with snow in it is a must — and snow with Christmas thrown in is a bonus!!! This book was quite short, but it really was a feel good read, and there were a few chuckles along the way. She goes on an adventure to Alaska to actually find him, in a hope to get the interview and get a job position she really wants. Finn asks Carrie to give up her interview and keep his privacy, now Carrie must decide between her career and the man she thinks could hold her heart. Digging deep into Finn s past, Carrie develops a theory on his whereabouts. I like some steam with my cheesy romance! To tell you the truth, I could see what was coming. All you need to do is bat those baby blues at them and strangers open up to you.
Digging deep into Finn's past, Carrie develops a theory on his whereabouts. A delicious Christmas miracle well worth waiting for. Five of Macomber's novels have been made into television movies: Debbie Macomber's Mrs. Filled with all the comforts and joys of Christmastime, Starry Night is a delightful novel of finding happiness in the most surprising places. The electricity between them was powerful enough to light up a city block. 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. Two years later, she was less so.
Debbie Macomber clearly played with one of the most winning romance formulas: an unlikely couple an emotionally wounded alpha male and a kind female lead forced to come face-to-face in a secluded setting a log cabin on a frozen lake in Alaska , just to confront an immediate attraction and deep emotional issues. An improbable love story that had me eating out of the author's hand. Debbie has become a Christmas tradition for me, and I read at least one of Christmas books every December. Carrie, the smart, business-like woman, with her laptop and phone and high-heeled shoes. Instead they ached even worse. That being said: This book was terrible. If you like to keep it clean, short and sweet then this may be the book for you.
