After a rough year involving a serious car accident, painful recovery and broken engagement, Dakota Moore moves to Cherry Lake to rebuild her life. To embrace her new community, she volunteers to coordinate the annual Christmas tree gala.

Adam Clements has come home to help his mother run the family business while his father recovers from a heart attack. For the last decade, he's been a high-flying soccer player, enjoying the life that comes with his popularity. But something is missing and he can't put his finger on it... until he returns to Cherry Lake and remembers the feeling of home.

Adam tries to keep his distance because he knows he'll be leaving, but he can't deny his attraction to Dakota. With the countdown to Christmas on, can Dakota convince Adam that his home is right there in Cherry Lake, with her?

After damaging one of her hands in a car accident, Dakota not only lost her ability to create jewelry but lost her fiance' as well. Feeling she would never be able to get her life back if she didn't get away from her coddling parents, she moved to Cherry Lake. Eager to fit into the community, she volunteered to work on the community's annual Christmas tree gala. Adam came back to Cherry Lake to take over his father's real estate business. His father had just had a serious heart attack and Adam wanted to give him time to recover without worrying about the business. The timing was perfect since Adam's soccer team was on a break. This is where Dakota met Adam. When he to volunteered for the Christmas tree gala, they found that they worked well together. This just made their mutual attraction stronger. However, since Adam was only there for a short time, he didn't want to start anything with Dakota. But you can't control the heart. I really liked Dakota and Adam. I couldn't help feel sorry for Dakota after having the accident. Not being able to make jewelry as she loved to (and was famous for) was devastating for her. I admired her determination to find another way to be creative. Adam was a good man who didn't hesitate to help out his family and community, even though he was struggling with his own problems. Should he retire or not? With constant soccer-related injuries, he needed to decide soon. This is a wonderful story about friendship, community and love. It will keep you smiling as you follow this couple in their relationship and the events taking place around Christmas time. I was happy to receive this book from Library Thing and give my opinion of it.

After experiencing life changing events, people have the choice of hiding away from them or facing them head on. Dakota Moore has had just such a traumatic series of events and she’s determined to rebuild her life once more, facing life head on. She’s moved to Cherry Lake to start a new life for herself, eager to make the most of opportunities and even volunteering to organise the community’s annual Christmas tree gala. Adam Clements has suffered injuries which could curtail his career as a top pro-soccer player but has returned home to help his Mum run the family business whilst his Dad recovers from a heart attack. He’s also re-evaluating his life and options . . . Neither Dakota nor Adam are looking for a relationship but fate has other plans for these two, including adding some Christmas sparkle to both their lives! This is an easy paced romance, one that involves a close-knit community and two people getting to know each other in a realistic time frame. The author’s descriptions are evocative and, at times, I could really imagine the beautiful ornaments that Dakota created. Cody is a brilliant secondary character who has a significant impact on events. It is a heart-warming, festive romance, delightful to escape into - especially at this time of year! It is the first in a new series and I can’t wait to read future stories by this author or in this series. I requested and received a copy of this novel, via NetGalley. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Christmas Glitter is the first book in the Moore Sisters of Montana series. After an accident that left Dakota injured, she had to sell her home and move in with her parents. After her recovery, she moved to Cherry Lake to have a fresh start. When she gets there, Adam is filling in for his dad while he is in the hospital. They form a bond while he is helping her settle in the town. Adam has known something was missing from his life, but he didn't quite know what it was. It starts to become clear being back in Cherry Lake, especially after meeting Dakota. But can they each meet their needs and the needs of the other? I really enjoyed this story. Definitely one to read!

I love these little fictional towns that sound and feel so real. Cherry Lake is not to far from Marietta and it is slowly becoming another favorite town for me to visit in my book travels. I do have tendency to visit Montana a lot. Must be something about the cowboys, the snow (which we do not get here in Texas) and the warm feeling I always seem to come away with. In this book our author gives us two folks who are not youngin's but not middle aged either. I like the fact that they have lived some life and are being asked by life's itself to make changes. It was so nice to see normal folks not young kids in a book. The storyline really had me from the start because I am an artist and Dakota Moore is one as well. Her life mirrors mine and that makes for a great read in a book. Pro Soccer player Adam Clements comes home to help out in his father's real estate office. Oh fate has they should meet when she comes to pick up the key to her rental cottage. Know that this book moves at the perfect rate that it should. It moves and flows like the snow in the trees. The details our author gives us in this book brings the trees alive. Her descriptions of the ornaments that Dakota creates had me going to me my sewing room and picking up my sketch book to design a new creation. This book inspired as well as was a good read and that to me IS a good book.

Christmas Glitter (The Moore Sisters of Montana Book 1) by Ann B. Harrison This is Dakota Moore and Adam Clements’ story. I enjoyed Dakota and Adam’s story. This is a sweet and heartwarming story. When Dakota and Adam meet there is definitely chemistry between them. Since they are both going through some tough issues in their life they are trying to hold off on a relationship. Well, when love is involved things are out of our control. Even though Dakota and Adam were going through their own issues they still got involved in helping others and their community. This was an uplifting and entertaining read. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Reviewed by Natasha Jackson for Readers' Favorite 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.

The Moore Sisters of Montana, book one. Christmas Glitter by Ann B. Harrison. A great start to a new series. Dakota moves to Cherry Lake to start a new life after a serious car accident changes a part of it. When she goes to pick up her rental house keys she meets Adam who is a professional soccer player home helping in the family business while his father recuperates after having a heart attack. I'm looking forward to reading more in this series and more by this author.

With a serious injury and failed engagement behind her Jewelry Maker Dakota Moore decided to move to Cherry Lake to be close to her sister and just live life her way. Pro Soccer player Adam Clements came home to help with the family business after his dad had a heart attack. When Dakota stops at the local real estate office to pick up the keys to her rental house she comes face to face with the man who could threaten her 18 month hiatus on men. With Adam taking over the fundraiser planning for his dad the two find themselves working together and growing close to one another. Can they find a way to be together or will they go there separate ways? I loved this book and it was so well written! The characters seemed so real to me. I couldn’t seem to put it down!

This is a sweet holiday that that will warm your heart and keep you entertained from beginning to end. It's very well written and I really enjoyed these characters. For the past year Dakota Moore has been recovering from a horrible car accident and a broken heart. Now she's moved to Cherry Lake to start over and reconnect with her sisters. She's unsure if she'll ever be able to go back to making the jewelry she is well known for but her creative juices are still flowing. She'll just have to channel them a different way for now. Adam Clementsis temporarily in Cherry Lake while his father recovers from his recent heart attack. As soon as he can he plans to get back to Seattle and his professional soccer career. When these two first meet there is an instant connection but the fight it since Dakota isn't sure she's ready to trust anyone just yet and Adam's stay is only temporary. Some things can't be avoided though! This is a great read and one I would recommend to everyone.

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.

Christmas Glitter by Ann B. Harrison The Moore Sisters of Montana Sweet Holiday Romance ~ Healing, love, family and holiday spirit abound in this small town Christmas story. Dakota Moore has moved to Cherry Lake after a rough year. She is unsure that the creative job she is well known for will be a possibility for her in the future after the accident she was in. One of the first people she meets is Adam Clement – professional soccer player – home to help his father out while he recuperates from a cardiac incident. The two are definitely attracted BUT neither believes they are ready for romance. With Adam trying to figure out what he wants to do with his future and Dakota worried about hers there is much to explore for both of them through the book. In addition to the potential for romance the two are involved in community with a tree decorating, soccer clinics and more going on for the reader to enjoy. I enjoyed the book and felt it was written by someone from “Down Under” even though the term soccer was used instead of football and the setting was in Seattle – and – I do believe the author lives in Australia so I was right. This does not detract from the story but it was interesting…as was the story. If you are looking for a sweet small town holiday romance filled with community and holiday spirit this might be the book for you. Thank you to NetGalley and Tule Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars
