Nome, Alaska is the one place Ava Faraday has been avoiding for most of her life. After she receives a letter from her grandmother, she decides to stop running and return home. She returns to help her father during the dredging season, but she doesn’t expect her life to change forever. Ethan Calhoun has finally settled into a place that feels like home. He has been successful in the dredging business, however some of the locals never fail to remind him that he is an outsider. Throughout the years, he has managed to control his worst fears, but unfortunately his past comes back to haunt him the day he lays eyes on Ava for the first time.
Laura Oliva bursts onto the romance scene with her debut novel, All that Glitters. This book is chocked full of suspense and steamy scenes. While readers will fall in love with the majestic beauty of Nome, Alaska, they will be caught up in the bumpy emotional ride as the main characters learn to accept their own paths. Although some of the more intimate scenes are repetitive, the suspense will keep readers guessing until the very end. All that Glitters is a fast, easy and enjoyable book to read.
A copy of this book was provided by the author for me to review.

Loved it, loved it, totally adored it. Ava can clearly take care of herself and allows no one to push her around, no matter how good-looking they are...*clears throat* Ethan Calhoun proves to be an exception when they meet. Tastefully realistic and beautiful. Her characters have attitude and the means to back up what they say. I have a crush on Ethan now.
