Dancer Allie Jameson is home this Christmas…
Not just for the holidays but to regroup and relaunch her career after the Broadway show she was in was canceled. Maybe she'll go back to New York. Maybe she'll try dancing on the West Coast. But one thing was certain. She isn't staying in Christmas Mountain after the new year.
While Allie ponders her options, she takes a job waitressing at the Sleigh Café.
Allie knows things in Christmas Mountain never change…except they are changing. At the Sleigh Café, someone's leaving uplifting Christmas notes for patrons and staff, including Allie. And for the first time ever, Allie can't look at her best friend from high school – Nick Stocking – without thinking about mistletoe kisses. It's all so confusing. Except it's not. Because no matter what's changed, Allie will leave town on January first…or will she?
If you enjoy the best friends to lovers trope and movies like When Harry Met Sally or 13 Going on 30, you'll love this full-length, clean, heartwarming romance with an HEA and no cliffhangers.
Christmas at the Sleigh Cafe
I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was such an enchanting Christmas romance. I love how these two were BFFs growing up and going their separate ways into their careers. Allie Jameson is a professional dancer living in New York. She is currently back home in Christmas Mountain while her right foot heals from its stress fracture. She is coming to terms about the life span of a dancer especially since she doesn't sing nor act. She feels her time is coming to an end but she never planned for the next phase of her life. Nick Stocking, is a master chef. He comes home and helps work in his family restaurant. Can these two figure out if they have a future together? Will New York call her back for more dancing?
I think if the book was written in a dual POV format and getting to see Nick's thoughts really would have brought more to the book.
This is a clean romance with just some kissing involved.
