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 is Book 6 in the Christmas Mountain Romance series. This is the first book I’ve read in the series but it can be read as a stand-alone.

Allie Jameson is a dancer in New York who returns to her hometown after the Broadway show she was in was canceled and also to continue recovering from an injury. Allie is at a crossroads in her career and not sure what she really wants. She takes a job at the Sleigh Cafe where her best friend Nick works as a chef for his mother. Nick and Allie have been best friends since childhood who both left to pursue their dreams but are both back in Christmas Mountain. Christmas Mountain remains the same except for the mysterious uplifting notes being left for the patrons and of course Allie at the Sleigh Cafe.

The uplifting notes was one of my favorite parts of the story along with Allie and Nicks friendship growing into something more. I love Christmas Romance books and this one did not disappoint. This was such a fun cozy Christmas story about friends to lovers with a happily ever after. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

A special thank you to Netgalley and Franny Beth Books for the eARC I received in exchange for my honest review.

My review will be posted on Goodreads and Amazon on 10/29/22 @ Marian Sherry.

Allie headed home to Christmas Mountain after the show on Broadway she was dancing in was cancelled. She was going home to make decisions on what she was going to do next after hurting her foot. She was not sure if she wanted to go back to dancing or find a new path in her life.
Back at home was Nick. Nick was her best friend and maybe more for her. Nick is working at Sleigh Café that his mother owns. Needing a job to keep herself busy Nick suggested she work at the café while she is there.
Spending time together makes them both aware that there may be more than friendship between them.
This is a sweet easy romance book that filled me with joy as I read it.
Thank you NetGalley, Melinda Curtis and Franny Beth Books for the copy of Christmas at the Sleigh Café. This is my personal review.

I love Melinda Curtis books. This one is not my favorite but a great book. Allie is a dancer and has come home from New York City with a stress fracture in her foot. Nick is home to help his family in the Cafe. Allie's mother wants her to go back to New York to "make it big". That's not what Allie wants. Until they can all admit to themselves what they really wants out of life they are stuck in the drama of small town life. I would love to have more books set in this town.
