      Fun story with some fruitcake recipes if you are so inclined to try to make one! The book does tempt you to try fruitcake. I may just make one this Christmas!

      I've always enjoyed reading Christmas Romances to escape the annoying and stressful real-life things that come with the Holidays. There's Something About Christmas, by Debbie Macomber was an excellent Christmas read, packed with humor and romance. I absolutely loved this story.Emma Collins is a bit of a scrooge She hates Christmas, hates Christmas tress, hates Christmas lights, and she certainly hates fruit cake. So when her boss gives her the assignment to interview fruitcake recipe finalists f [...]

      I love Debbie Macomber but unfortunately I was a little disappointed in this book. If you like & make fruitcakes for the holiday good thing is there are 3 recipes.

      There’s Something About Christmas By Debbie MacomberIn the vein of an advertisement-this book is small, cute and sweet, just the type you want to read at this season with its busy-ness. Perfecto Plus! In addition to providing recipes for fruitcakes, the heroine discovers she likes fruitcake, which I enjoy too.Debbie Macomber has struck gold with this book, yes, I know she had knitting patterns in her Blossom Street books, but the patterns were blah and even the little brochure you could buy at [...]

      Simply adorable holiday romance. Set in Washington state - Emma is a journalist writing about local fruitcake finalists and Owen is a pilot that is tasked with flying her to interviews in exchange for some newspaper advertising. Add in their dogs and its a very cute story!

    6. Megan

      Emma Collins is a budding journalist looking for her chance to prove it to her boss at The Examiner where she writes obituaries. She has sworn off relationships after see her parents' fail disastrously and hates all things Christmas as a result, including fruitcake. So fate would have it her first real assignment as a journalist is the interview three of the finalists in a fruitcake contest. In comes our romantic hero, Oliver Hamilton, (and his dog Oscar) the pilot who has agreed to fly her to e [...]

      I guess I would give this book 3 1/2 stars if I could I liked the story overall because I have interest in writing and some in journalism. Emma was a very likable character, I thought, and enjoyed the banter between her and Oliver. Without giving away too much about the plot, I will say that something I really liked about the book was the focus on lessons learned through other women that Emma met in her interviews. This book definitely made me think of fruitcake differently, too.I think the last [...]

      I absolutely loved this story. The characters were engaging and there was some great humor. Of course there was the predictable happy ending.One thing that made this book somewhat unique was its discussion of fruitcake. The very thing that has been the source of some joking in my family was presented in quite a different light. The author intermingled some quips and comments about fruitcake at the beginnings of many chapters - some were humorous digs against the traditional concoction. Others we [...]

      Ehh. I wanted to read a Christmas book to get me in the holiday spirit. This one had good reviews and said it was humorous. Just a little too lame for my taste. The main character is excited to get a series of stories to write for her paper (she is now only writing obituaries and selling ad space). The series topic? Local ladies that are finalists in a national fruitcake recipe contest. Whoo-Hoo! I could see the potential for a bit of comedy here, but the author chooses to go more philosophical [...]

      Emma's mother has died, and she no longer celebrates Christmas because it reminds her of the good times she's shared with her mother, making her feel sad. When Emma meets Oliver, her life changes. He's cocky, arrogant, and is hired by her boss to fly Emma to three interviews that she has to do for the newspaper. She has to interview finalists for a fruitcake competition. The flights and the interviews prove interesting.This was a lighthearted book that you'd enjoy if you want a story without a l [...]

      this is the comfortable, Christmas read that I expect from Debbie Macomber, only let down by the fact that I'd read it before when it had its old cover. oh, and there's also another, old, short story in the book, but I'd read that too.

    12. Claudia (CJ)

      This is one of those books that I would love to read again and again!Perfect Christmas time book and fruitcake recipes to go along with it.

    13. Chloe

      I'd give this 3.5 stars. It was cute and enjoyable but probably not something I would re read. It's the story of Emma and Oliver. Emma is a writer for a local newspaper and Oliver is a pilot. She is supposed to go out and talk to business owners and see who wants to pay to advertise in the paper when she runs into Oliver. This is a hate-to-love story and at first they really don't get along. However, there is a national fruit cake contest going on so Emma's boss strikes a deal with Oliver- he'll [...]

    14. Debby

      Emma Collins father was very unfaithful to her mom, but her mom loved him to the end. Bitter towards men and Christmas, she's working as an obituary writer in Puyallup, WA. Getting fed up with obituaries, she's threatening to quit when her co-worker (who's secretly dating the owner) persuades him to give her the chance to write some feature articles on 3 Washington women who are finalists in a fruitcake recipe contest.Oliver Hamilton runs a local airfreight business and he agrees to fly her to t [...]

    15. Nikki Brown

      Funny and Festive, another good read from Debbie Macomber. Set in Washington State the book is centered around Emma and Oliver, and Oscar and Boots!Emma is a journalist on a local paper, she usually writes obituaries and sells advertising space, however this want making the most of her skills. Her editor gave her the task of interviewing 3 local ladies who had reached the final of a national competition, the competition was about Fruitcake. Emma had tried to sell advertising space to Oliver, a l [...]

      I like Debbie Macomber books but I do find some of the wording to be down right silly. Like I don't think any man would say he enjoys a girls kisses. But I get it, she has to keep things G rated. I just think it'd be nice to have a little more romance in the books. The fights that they have the men and women seem immature.

    17. Cathy

      It's all about the fruitcake! I loved all the recipes and have to try to the chocolate one. What a lovely love story that takes flight when a journalist has to travel different parts of Washington to meet the creators of winning fruitcakes. Also, it shows that fruitcakes can be yummy!

    18. Maria Carragher

      I am pleasantly surprised by how much I’ve enjoyed Debbie Macomber’s Christmas books. The characters in her books are fantastic and it is so easy to get lost in their stories.

    19. Hope

      I always enjoy Debbie Macomber's Christmas books. :-)They are fun, lighthearted reads always with a wonderful underlying message of hope and cheer. :-)

    20. Katrina

      Such a banal plot, no character development at all, creepy rapey vibes in the beginning and a pathetic predictable ending. Total waste of time.
