Throwback Thursday is a weekly meme created by Renee @ It’s Book Talk. This meme is an awesome way to share old favorites that were published over a year ago or even books that you’re finally reading after much time has passed. I have plenty of those to share! If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board, and you’re welcome to use Renee’s pic as well. Please link back to her@It’s Book Talk.
This week’s pick:
Blurb: ’Tis the season for romance, second chances, and Christmas cheer with this new novel from 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-bestselling 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.
I have so many Debbie Macomber books added to my TBR, so when I saw this at my local library, I couldn’t resist. I fell in love with the cover and after reading the blurb, I knew it was one I had to try. I haven’t read anything by Debbie Macomber and after seeing that she’s one of my good friend Noriko’s favorite authors, I’m even more intrigued! You’ll have to read her wonderful review of this book on her blog.
So, I thought I’d start out with a few Christmas reads. Along with this one, I grabbed a few others by this author and will be starting them this week! I’m trying to get as many Christmas books in as possible and there simply isn’t enough time to read them all!
