Emma is a newspaper reporter stuck with selling ads and writing obituaries for a financially strapped small-town newspaper in Puyallup, Washington. After she's spent weeks begging for a real story, the editor hands her a "plum" assignment. Three Washington State women are finalists in a national contest to find the best fruitcake in America. Harrison Oliver is hired to fly her around the state. Emma is petrified to fly in a small plane, but can't refuse the assignment. Harrison is a risk-taking flyboy with a devilish grin and a come-what-may attitude. Over the course of her assignment, Emma struggles not to fall in love with Harrison, and discovers there's a lot more to these women than fruitcake.

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 falls for Oliver (who's not quite the Scrooge he sometimes seems) and his mutt, Oscar (who's allergic to her perfume, which makes him sneeze repeatedly). And she meets three wise women who know a lot about fruitcake--and even more about life.

It all reminds her that there's something about Christmas. Something special...
