One of the things I liked most about Christmas Glitter was the overall theme of making choices. Both Dakota and Adam have had some life changing events happen in their lives recently, and Ann B. Harrison’s tale is about the choices they make. Do they let these things happen to them or do they make a choice about what their lives will look like next? It’s an interesting choice, but a good one as the story unfolds with Dakota recovering physically and emotionally, and Adam dealing with the realities of aging parents and an aging body as a professional athlete. With both Adam and Dakota back in Cherry Lake, they will both have to decide what happens next. Her life is now in Cherry Lake, but his stay is only temporary, even if the life that’s waiting for him isn’t as fulfilling as it should be.
The thing Ann B. Harrison does so well in Christmas Glitter is the way the relationship builds. Not that I’m opposed to it, but there is no insta-love; this is definitely a slow burn that starts with friendship and gradually changes as they get to know each other. Healing, though in different ways, changes their perspectives and, as the story moves forward, you just know this will cause some drama later on! Aside from the basic relationship drama, I loved the focus on the holiday and the small town calmness. I am a sucker for a small town romance and Christmas Glitter was the perfect holiday treat.
