Joy is nice. A hard-working widow who has traveled north to make her daughter’s Christmas as special as possible – with snow and grandparents and sleigh rides. I liked her and I loved her relationship with her daughter Piper.
I wasn’t so sure about Cole, though. For one thing his initial resentment of Joy is really harsh and it changes far too quickly, simply because he thinks she’s pretty. I also didn’t like the high handed way he was with Piper, especially when it came to the puppy. He was just a grumpy guy who much preferred jumping to conclusions over finding out the real answers.
As for the rest of the story, it was nice and Christmassy, with occasional hummingbirds. I think the romance was a bit too fast, all things considered, and I never really warmed Cole, but if you’re looking for a sweet Christmas romance with a cute kid and a hopeful outlook on love, then this may be just what you’re looking for.

Cole Tanner was like a brother to Matt having been abandoned at a young age by his own father and then raised by Matt's parents. He's a bit resentful of Joy since she had taken Matt away to California and as much as he's wants to dislike her as soon as he meets Joy and Piper he can't help but melt. Cole volunteers to show Joy and Piper the sights of the small town and the more time he spends with them the less he can see them walking back out of his life.
A Hummingbird Christmas by Karen Foley seems to be the first book in a new contemporary romance series, Glacier Creek. This first book held all those wonderful things I love from a small town holiday romance being set in this lovely town. There were special events and wonderful residents in this small town that made the Christmas magic just pop out from the pages of this lovely read.
I would warn that the romance within this book is one that happens at a fairly quick pace in the days leading up to the Christmas holiday. This didn't bother me too much because it wasn't an "instant" connection but one that built between the pair coming from their common loss and having that in common along with the joy of young Piper and making a magical holiday for her. I'm always a sucker for a young child fitting into a new relationship so it wasn't a surprise that I loved this one.

Living in the closest home to them is Cole Tanner, the boy Matt's parents raised as their own since he was nine. He was Matt's best friend and cohort in all kinds of mischief. When Matt married Joy, he left Montana to live in California with his bride, a decision Cole resented from day one. Now that Joy is back in Montana, Cole finds he must reevaluate his feelings when faced with her genuineness and pull. Plus, the draw to Piper, a cute, fun and loving child, is present.
Joy finds herself in the undercurrents of a strong emotional draw toward Cole-the same pull he senses. But, there's the possibility of causing hurt to Matt's parents if they act on the attraction. Then there's the hummingbird that mysteriously appears whenever they need some guidance and clarification.
