Two Tickets To The Christmas Ball
Publication Date: October 5, 2010
Genre: Christian Romance
Summary: 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 Wizbotterdadrsquo;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 theyrsquo;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 matchmakersrsquo; best laid plans end up ruining everything this holiday
My Thoughts: This was a well crafted and beautiful story. Your attention will be grabbed from the beginning. Cora and Derrick are two lost souls who are looking for love, even though they did not fully realize it. It took the work of wizards to help these two realize everything they had been looking for, had not been to far from them this whole time. The Christmas wizard ball is not a ball that many know about and as the story goes on, you learn that this ball happens every year in away for God to get two people. Derrick is the first to realize his feelings as he watches her with his sister Sandy, who readers will fall inlove with also. Cora wants to, but she is unsure of his feelings, since Derrick has always come across as slightly uptight. Reading as the two learn their love for one another is a lot of fun. Each come from very differant families. Derrick who has a well built and full of love christian family, and Cora has a family who are drugs addicts and are not christian.
If you pick up this book to add to your holiday reads, you won't be sorry. Instead you will get lost in a magical story with wizards, crazy ladies who own an antique dress shop, a street that only Derrick, Cora and Sandy can see, and a love story.
