Review 'All That Glitters' by Tracy Krimmer


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34109955-all-that-glittersCountry-music star, Dory Walker, never wanted to come back to the small town of Sycamore Bay. But after her fairy-tale life is flipped upside down, and her marriage becomes a casualty, she has no choice.

Harris Malone is a man with few commitments. He keeps a low profile most days while he cares for his young daughter and helps run his dad’s hardware store.

But when he and Dory run into each other at the local gas station, all either can think about is the searing kiss they shared many years ago.

Can a woman who only wants to rekindle her career and a man who enjoys a no-strings attached lifestyle find everlasting love?

My Review:


When I first read the book description of ‘All That Glitters’ I immediately really wanted to read it. Not only do I love romance novels with a Hollywood/ celebrity kind of theme. I also love country music. This book just sounded great and I was so happy to receive a review copy.

In ‘All That Glitters’ we meet former celebrity Dory Walker. Dory used to be an upcoming country star until an technicality with the microphone ended her career. When she finally starts to believe her career can begin again, she finally finds out her Hollywood star husband has filed for divorce and leaves her with nothing. Now Dory has to go back to the town she ran from years ago, and the people she neglected when she got her fame. And then there’s Harris Malone, the guy Dory had a major crush on for years.

‘All That Glitters’ is a fun and easy to read book. From the moment I started reading I was hooked and didn’t want to stop reading. I loved the small town life of Sycamore Bay and its characters. The author really made a great scène for this book and I loved getting to know the different characters.

But the main character Dory wasn’t easy to like. I disliked her for most of the book to be honest. Dory was used to this luxurious life and when she lost everything she only had her pride. And her pride really was a little annoying. She just seemed to think she was better than the rest of the town. Blegh.. I began to love her a little more near the end of the book, but still..

The romance between Dory and Harris seemed a little sudden, but I loved reading about their relationship. Harris was a great guy, almost to great and he definitely made Dory better. I especially loved the way Harris was with his little girl. What a great dad.

‘All That Glitters’ was definitely a fun read. The story ended a little abrupt to my opinion, but I love that there will be another book about this town and the characters.
