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?
It is a Christmas fairy tale of sorts, yet at the same time, could actually happen. Technically, nothing happened in the story that couldn't have happened in real life. :)
What I really liked about the story is that the romance aspect was actually cute and charming rather than unlikely and rushed. You know how I get about rushed, unrealistic love stories. Cora and Simon actually have real life struggles and doubts and you were able to witness and identify with. No over dramatic, catastrophic events. There's no fairy tale perfection, but they have a believable happily ever after.
Everyone needs a little Christmas magic this time of the year and Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball provides that touch of whimsy.
I'm just sorry that I didn't get it read and posted about before now. I just finished it earlier today.
