About This 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?

What I thought about this book

This was a fast reading book. Right from the beginning it had me hooked. Then it took a little turn for me when it started talking about the booksellers. For about a chapter I was wondering if I wanted to continue reading. But I did and I have to say that I am glad that I did.

This book really kept me interested in everything that was going on. I loved how the author, Donita K. Paul kept you wondering what was going to happen next and and how she brought the whole story together towards the end. Cora is the main character and she has come from a family of non-believers and has some baggage that she has to work through. Simon, who she works with has an amazing family, which is completely different from the family she comes from. Simon's sister, Candy Sandy is a huge part of Simon's life and he would do anything to make her life happy.

I absolutely loved the last chapter of this book. There were so many things said that makes perfectly wonderful since. I would love to share the whole last chapter with you because that would ruin the whole book for you but I will share this part, "No matter who your earthly family is or how they failed you, your heavenly Father will never deny you nor forsake you."

I have to admit that this is only the second Christmas book that I have read but I am sure that I will be reading more of them.

You can download Chapter One of this book now, just to check it out and see if you like it. If you have read it let me know what you thought of the book.

I received this book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers for the sole purpose of reading and doing this review.
