Since I have never been to Texas I enjoyed how the author made it feel very real and a place I could imagine loving. I could feel her love and respect for the state. At a few points, the heroine got frustrating to me, but she was growing and isn't growth what love and life are about. I liked the realistic treatment of the elderly and the child. It was a book that left me feeling good when I finished it.
Jesse is amazed to learn that Nicky is his nephew. He hadn't known his brother Ray married Kate's sister and had a child. The chemistry between Jesse and Kate intensifies as they spend time together in making decisions concerning Nicky's welfare. Kate realizes that her relationship with her boyfriend Riley was never a good one. When he doesn't want to lose Kate, Riley makes a nasty demand in order to try to keep her in his life.
I liked how Celia Yeary continued to show Kate as a strong woman making decisions on her own. But sometimes Kate's strength causes heartache for Jesse. She suddenly leaves Texas to return to New York City so she can take care of Riley's accusations. Kate's used to dealing with things head-on so she doesn't think to ask Jesse for help. Jesse's upset when she leaves without discussing anything with him about Nicky's future, and she doesn't mention Riley's attempt to get her back into his life.
The Stars at Night is totally engrossing and entertaining. Yeary's pacing is perfect with snappy dialogue. The descriptions paint a vivid picture of the Texan setting. Her main characters are so well developed that I felt as if I knew them.
Bravo to Celia Yeary on a wonderful book!
The characters are afraid to completely give in to their feelings. They are both used to being the strong ones in their families, the one who must cope and be there when needed. Falling in love was not on the agenda of their busy lives. Throw into the mix, death, a little boy orphaned, one grandmother in ill health and one with dementia and you begin to wonder what this pair did in their pasts to deserve what they are now dealing with.
Neither wants to rely on the other, asking for help is something they have never been able to do - there was no-one to ask.
Despite the odds stacked against them, their love finally takes hold.
Beautifully written, you can picture the characters and the settings as vividly as if you had stepped into the page.
I have no hesitation in recommending this book. I have read many of Ms Yeary's books but this would definitely be my favourite. I am sure it will be a success.
In The Stars at Night the author offers strong believable characters, a charming and yet complex story and a beautiful setting. Into this mix she throws in secondary characters, all of whom in their own ways, makes life difficult for Jesse and Kate, and Kate's adorable nephew, Nicky. There were a couple of scene changes that lacked the author's usual smooth touch and had me floundering for a couple of moments before picking up the new setting, but it wasn't enough to stop me from moving forward. Ms. Yeary's skilled word-smithing and vivid descriptions of her beloved Texas, paint an amazing picture of the scenery and environment.
The Stars at Night is a poignant, charming story that held my attention from start to finish, with a reluctant break for sleep.
