The townspeople of Silver Bells, WY, take Christmas very seriously, and baker Sylvie West is no exception. Amid the festive preparations, the owner of the beloved Christmas Café tells Sylvie that he is considering closing up shop. When she learns that the Holiday Channel is filming a TV movie in town, she knows she can save the café that she loves by convincing the crew to film a scene there. However, her efforts to woo the film’s leading man get her more attention than she bargained for, and Sylvie feels her grasp on the situation and herself starting to slip. Evans makes a heartwarming debut with this character-driven contemporary holiday romance. Narrator Eileen Stevens gives an expressive and engaging portrayal of the likable leading lady and her eclectic group of friends and family. The sweet story and playful performance yield a fun, festive listening experience. A bonus PDF includes some of the Christmas Café’s yummy yuletide recipes.
VERDICT This audio will appeal to listeners seeking an upbeat friends-to-lovers rom-com full of jubilant holiday joy. Recommended for fans of Sarah Adams, Kerry Winfrey, and Katie Bachand.
