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?"
I must admit it I love a good Christmas story. There is nothing better in the month of December then to curl up with a sweet little romance centered around the magical time of year. This book and was very fun Christmas time read. It was light hearted and very easy to read. I was able to finish it in two evenings. I fell in love with the characters in this book. The author did a fabulous job pulling me into their lives. The book does have a bit of magic involved in it, that is something that you do not see often in a Christian based book, and at first I was a little uneasy with it. As the story went on I settled into it and realized that it was nothing to get worked up about and done in a very tasteful manner. I love how the book describes wizards in the original form as a wise person. Overall I was very please with this book and would give it 4 out of 5 stars.
