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?

I love books about ballerinas and dancing.  And though I should have expected it because of the title, I didn’t catch on based on the chapter titles that this story was a play on The Nutcracker Suite.  Oops!

It was fun to follow Calyssa as she was swept away into a world of danger, dancing and romance.  The mix of romance and mystery was light-hearted and fun.

The story loosely followed along the theme of the ballet without forcing things or making it seem contrived.
