Carrie Slayton, a big-city society-page columnist, longs to write more serious news stories. So her editor hands her a challenge first: Carrie must score the paper an interview with Finn Dalton, the notoriously reclusive author.
Living in Alaskan wilderness, Finn has written a bestselling book about surviving in the wild. But he stubbornly declines to speak to anyone, and no one even knows exactly where he lives. With her career at stake, Carrie sacrifices 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 expected. And soon Carrie is torn between pursuing the story of a lifetime and following her heart.
Carrie is a city girl, who works as a society-page columnist. 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? 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. What she doesn’t consider is the situation and the man that waits her there. After spending a few days together due to a strong snow storm, Finn and Carrie grow close together, but things don’t go so easy, Finn doesn’t trust women and Carrie has to decide whether she wants the man she fell in love with or write the article that could help her career immensely.
It was my first book by Debbie Macomber and I really enjoyed it. It was a sweet romance between a city girl and a man, who loves to live in solitude. I really liked the description of Alaskan nature, the snowy winter and starry sky. Although the ending was predictable, the story was still very enjoyable and because there were several bumps in the road to love, which kept it interesting until the end.
