Starry Night: A Christmas Novel

Starry Night: A Christmas Novel - Debbie Macomber I say that this book is slightly old-fashioned, and you might think that I mean it is old-fashioned because the protagonists refrain from having sex. But that is not it at all. What I mean is that there is so little angst with the characters, so little self-disgust that I have come to expect in romance novels of today.

This book as written was a very refreshing change from the usual romance fare, that I'm tempted to buy more of Ms Macomber's books just so I can see the world from a different perspective.

Now, this is not to say that there is no tension or misunderstanding or even stupid behavior on the part of the protagonists...there is VERY stupid behavior. Some that even made me cry *blush*.

The characters have back-bone and grit, they are likable and *almost* believable. (call me jaded)

The story is interesting, engaging, compelling and easy to read in a matter of hours. This was a fun and heart-warming story.
