Meet Me at the Top


Alice Davies was a hopeless romantic until her boyfriend hooked up with her best friend and left her crushed. When he left her friend and began stalking Alice, her parents stepped in and sent her on vacation to Seattle - the home of her favorite movie. Alice’s journal is filled with entries detailing her hurt and confusion over this awful incident. Seeing her favorite places from Sleepless in Seattle makes the trip very enticing for Alice, and finally gives her something positive to write about in her journal. A chance meeting at a café means she sets up her own meet-me-at-the-top adventure at the Space Needle. Sam Decker is severely disappointed when his plans for Valentine’s Day fall through. Can this chance meeting lead to another romance for two people that are Sleepless in Seattle?

This story is a beautiful homage to Nora Ephron’s classic movie. Fans of Sleepless in Seattle will enjoy walking around Seattle with Alice and Sam. Alice is a sweet, likeable character readers will enjoy getting to know. Her heart is definitely damaged by the behavior of her ex-boyfriend. She’s not looking for love, but she finds herself open to an unexpected opportunity. When she and Sam meet, however, it’s not fireworks and sparks; it’s just a gentle hello that leads to a lovely date. The relationship that develops is sweet and delightful. By the time readers finish this book, they’ll know all about favorite spots from the movie, and wanting to learn even more about this sweet couple. Truthfully, this book would make a delightful movie!
