Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball - Review



About the Author:

Donita K. Paul retired early from teaching school, but soon got bored! The result: a determination to start a new career. Now she is an award-winning novelist writing Christian Romance and Fantasy. She says, “I feel blessed to be doing what I like best.”
She mentors all ages, teaching teenagers and weekly adult writing workshops.
“God must have imprinted 'teacher' on me clear down to the bone. I taught in public school, then home schooled my children, and worked in private schools. Now my writing week isn’t very productive unless I include some time with kids.”
Her two grown children make her proud, and her two grandsons make her laugh.




Be sure to see Mrs. Paul's testimony page.








About the Book:
Can mysterious matchmaking booksellers bring two lonely hearts together in time for Christmas?

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?


My Review:
What a wonderful story!!  I was so excited to get to read, Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball.  I was wanting a light, feel good, Christmas story to read and boy did I ever find it.  This book was fun and whimsical yet and lots of little life lessons we can all learn from.
In the story, Cora, a new believer with a very dysfunctional family, works for Simon, an seasoned believer who cherishes and takes complete care of his loving family both receive a ticket to the Christmas Ball.  Neither can find out many details of the ball, neither really want to attend.  Through the tickets and Simon’s sister, the two find a common bond and a desire to attend the ball.  Unfortunately, life gets in the way and they have to work through to find where they belong.
It’s a modern day fairy tale with a wonderful God twist.  A fun Christmas story.  I would recommend this book to anyone!!  I will be saving it and reading it again over the years!!
Thank you WaterBrook Multnomah and the Blogging for Books program for the complementary copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion!!
Happy Reading!!
