If you're looking for a magical book to read this holiday season then Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball by Donita K Paul may be just what you need! This novella is the story of Cora, estranged from her family and living alone in a small town with just her cat to keep her company and her co-worker Simon, a serious man devoted to his job and family. While their paths have crossed at work they've never noticed each other. Not until they visit the same bookstore on a hard-to-find street that is sometimes there and sometimes isn't. Warner, Werner, and Wizbotterdat's bookshop is like stepping back in time. Both Cora and Simon make their purchases and upon returning home they both find a ticket to the Christmas Ball. What happens next is part of the mystery and magic of the season. An enjoyable read that got a little preachy in the middle (when talking about wizards) but one that I'd recommend anyway.
