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.

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…
