Starry Night by Debbie Macomber

Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how โ€œperfectโ€ they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.

Hey. It was a windy night here in Seattle, power blew out, so I did what any sane person would do when the neighborhood’s electricity is taking the night off. I set aside electronics, grabbed a hardback, and devoured the Christmas story in it from beginning to end by the beam of a flashlight.

Starry Night is the third book I’ve read by Debbie Macomber and the one I enjoyed the most, both for the pacing of the characters’ interaction that built up to what was inevitably coming and also for some interesting elements that I haven’t seen in every other romance I’ve read. Plus, it included a shout out to the Seattle Seahawks (12th Man, here!), and I never imagined I’d see the city of Kent, Washington mentioned in a New York Times bestselling author’s novel, so, hey again–thank God for temporary power outages that allow for delightful detours!
