Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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!
