Christmas Glitter by Ann B. Harrison - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Dakota has moved to Cherry Lake for a fresh start. A car accident has resulted in more limited use of her most powerful tools, her hands. She had to leave her successful career behind and unfortunately her fiancé therefore left her. Dakota is now trying to heal and find a new way to be creative that's within her limits. Cherry Lake feels like home straight away and to get to know people Dakota wants to play an active part in the community. She volunteers to be a vital part of the local annual Christmas tree gala. This will be a great way to find an outlet for her creativity.

When Dakota meets Adam she feels a connection straight away. Adam is a soccer player, but because of his father's recent heart attack he's on a break and has temporarily taken over the family business. Adam has some serious thinking to do about his career, but also about his personal life. It's time for him to make decisions and getting involved with someone isn't a welcome distraction. However, can he ignore his attraction to Dakota?

Christmas Glitter is a wonderful romantic story with two heartwarming main characters. Dakota is kind, fierce and generous. She never gives up and I loved her positive spirit. Adam is a gorgeous gentle man struggling with career issues. He doesn't know if it's time to move on or if he should keep playing for another season. Things become even more complicated when there's the question if he'll actually have the unlimited options he thought he would have. It was interesting to see where that would lead. He and Dakota both grow as a person, also because of the time they spend together, and I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough to find out if they'd get their sprinkle of Christmas magic and find their happily ever after.

Ann B. Harrison's writing has a lovely flow. I liked her vivid descriptions of the welcoming Cherry Lake and the events that are taking place there. She's given the town a great warm atmosphere that's perfect for sweet romance. There's plenty of Christmas charm as well and that festiveness makes the story even more fabulous. I loved Christmas Glitter, it's an amazing vibrant feelgood story with the exact right amount of depth and a fantastic endearing ending.


If you love small town romance and like reading Christmas stories I highly recommend Christmas Glitter.

About Ann B. Harrison

Ann lives in the lush green wine growing region of the Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia. She has the perfect surroundings to let her imagination run wild.

​Alternating between writing western and small town romances, family sagas and playing in her garden, she still finds time to discover what the area has to offer and day trips with hubby to local vineyards are a great way to escape.

Coffee dates and trawling through antique shops and gym workouts are her excuses to let the mind relax and the imagination well refill. Life would be too boring without coffee.
