#Contemporary, #Romance

When a movie touches your heart, sometimes you just need to take a tour.

Alice Davies, a Sleepless in Seattle super fan by her own admission, was sinking – sinking into a deep depression as her ex-boyfriend became her stalker. Alice’s parents, deeply worried for their daughter, surprise her with the gift of a lifetime – a trip to Seattle, Washington, to tour the places seen in her favorite movie. Embracing the chance for an adventure as well as some peace, Alice sets out to fulfill her dream.

Sam Decker never thought that lunch at his favorite counter would change his life until Alice sat next to him. When his plans for Valentine’s Day fall through, he finds himself inviting Alice to meet him at the top of the Space Needle in a daring homage to his favorite movie, Sleepless in Seattle.

Will she show up? Can magic happen with the touch of a hand?

4 out of 5 (very good)

MEET ME AT THE TOP is a short but oh-so-sweet story about two people who meet by accident and yet make an impact on each others' lives.

Alice is having a dream-trip to the city where her favourite film was made. She meets Sam when she goes to a bar to see if she can sit in the same seat. I would say the attraction is immediate, but neither of them act upon it. After all, that would be a little weird! Instead, they chat and then bump into each other again later on. This leads to a dinner invitation that Alice has the choice to accept or not, completely on her terms.

I really enjoyed this story but I. NEED. MORE!!!! This is the reason novellas aren't my favourite. This only gave me a snippet and left me with so many questions I need answers to. I loved how Sam and Alice were together, how they admitted to their attraction whilst acknowledging the difficulties they faced. It was a bittersweet ending for me, only because I. NEED. MORE!!!! I need my HEA for both of them; they deserve it and so much more. Please, Ms Pratt, tell me they're happy and together! I'm begging you.

A wonderfully warm tip-of-the-hat to Nora Ephron, written in S.H. Pratt's heart-warming and succinct style. A great novella that I have no hesitation in recommending.

I'm a wife and mother of three super kids. I'm originally from Montana but transplanted to the Pacific Northwest in 1999. I currently live in Olympia, Washington where most of my stories are set.

I began writing in high school but didn't really pursue it seriously until 2011. My hope is that people will read and enjoy my writing as much as I enjoy creating it.
