Settle in for a sweet treat with this classic Christmas story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber. Emma Collins has always believed that the world is divided into two kinds of people: those who love fruitcake and those who don’t. She’s firmly in the second category, so it’s ironic that her first major assignment for the Puyallup, Washington, Examiner is a series of articles about…fruitcake. At least it’s a step up from writing obituaries. Her task is to interview the finalists in a fruitcake recipe contest, and that means traveling around the state. Actually…flying around the state. Local pilot Oliver Hamilton, who’s starting an airfreight business, has agreed to take her wherever she needs to go, in exchange for free advertising. Unfortunately Emma hates small planes—almost as much as she hates fruitcake. But in the weeks leading up to Christmas, Emma discovers Oliver is not quite the Scrooge he sometimes seems. It all reminds her that there’s something about Christmas. Something special… Originally published in 2005

This is a time for families, for togetherness, for memories. On Christmas Eve, Maryanne and Nolan Adams tell their kids the story they most want to hear—how Mom and Dad met and fell in love. It all started when they were reporters on rival Seattle papers…and next thing you know, Here Comes Trouble! Christmas is also a time for…fruitcake. Rookie reporter Emma Collins hates fruitcake; for that matter, she hates Christmas, too. When three Washington State women are finalists in a national fruitcake contest, the story is assigned to her. That's bad enough. It gets worse when she has to fly in a small plane (scary!) with a smart-aleck pilot named Oliver Hamilton (sexy!) and his scruffy dog (cute!). In the end she meets three wise women, falls in love and learns There's Something About Christmas.
