Review of The Romance of the Sugar Plum Fairy

After one last performance, Calyssa Durant will be trading in her ballet slippers for an uncertain future.

Having sacrificed so much of her life to become a ballerina, Calyssa has met her goals only to long for something more. She will dance the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy in the 'Nutcracker' one more time before quitting her traveling ballet troupe.

But, when a late-night rehearsal ends with surprising danger, Calyssa and theater owner, Nikolas Clauson, are caught in a battle with an unexpected villain. As the smoke clears, Calyssa finds herself on a journey to her own, real-life 'Land of the Sweets'. Will she also find her own Nutcracker Prince, or will his stormy past and current secrets be more than this ballerina can overcome?

MY REVIEW:
What could possibly be more romantic for a Christmas romance than a real-life Sugar Plum Fairy meeting her very own Nutcracker Prince?  Calyssa and Nikolaus (or Nik) fill the roles to perfection.  Add to the mix a delightful little daughter, Nina.    Nina dreams of being a real ballerina herself and Calyssa has the ability to help Nik's daughter fulfill her heart's desire.   
Calyssa has made dancing her life and now she wants more.    Will she let her heart lead her body and follow Nik to the "Land of the Sweets"?  I am a huge fan of  Amanda Tru and I finished this delightful romance in two sittings.   Amidst planning for my youngest daughter's wedding, this book has been my own personal "get away".   Get a copy of this book and drift away with Nik and Calyssa.   
I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for my honest review.
