Holiday Romance

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.
