Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball by Donita K. Paul

The Book:

Source for ‘The Book’ section : From Goodreads
In a sleepy, snow-covered city, Cora Crowder is busy preparing for the holiday season. Searching for a perfect gift, a fortuitous trip to Warner, Werner, and Wizbotterdad’s (a most unusual bookshop) leads to an unexpected encounter with co-worker Simon Derrick. And the surprise discovery of a ticket for a truly one-of-a-kind Christmas Ball.

Every year, the matchmaking booksellers of the Sage Street bookshop host an enchanting, old-fashioned Christmas Ball for the romantic matches they’ve decided to bring together.

This year, will Simon and Cora discover a perfect chemistry in their opposite personalities and shared faith? Or will the matchmakers’ best laid plans end up ruining everything this holiday?

The View:

This is the first book I read of Donita K.Paul and I picked it during the festive season. Of course I could not get to it before or during Christmas and only managed to read it last week. This is a Christmas romance book with wizards and magic and as you probably guessed none of these elements can ever go wrong.

Cora Crowder comes from a dysfunctional family but her faith keeps her strong. She is a remarkable young woman who is chosen to find love when she visits a mysterious yet amazing bookstore. Her office environment is a place we can all relate too, monotonous with a curt and boring boss. Simon has his personality flaws but is adorable in so many other ways. The love and care he shows for his sister Sandy makes him a hero instantly. I liked how he stammers to ask Cora out (officially) and struggles with his words.

This is an interesting book, alternating between the two lead characters the author manages to tell the tale from all perspectives with no bias. A cute romantic book with lots of festive magic capable of surely lifting your spirits up – rated a 4 on 5
