When new lumberjack, Tom Jeffries, tells the camp cook, Jo Christy, that he’ll marry her if she can make a fruitcake, “as good as the one my mother makes,” she rises to the occasion. After all, he’s the handsomest, smartest, and strongest axman her camp-boss father has ever had in his camp—and the cockiest. And she intends to bring this lumberjack down a notch or three by refusing his proposal. The fruitcake wars are on!

By: Carrie Fancett Pagels
Another great story by Carrie. I loved the sweet romance. Tom Jeffries new lumberjack falls in love with Jo Christy who is the head cook after her mother died. On one condition will he marry her. She will have to make the best fruitcake like his mother makes. Other lumberjacks take the challenge with other ladies at the camp. Will Jo succeed in winning his heart with the best fruitcake? You will enjoy all the ladies go through to win these tuff guys hearts. I loved the characters well written. Who knows maybe we will see them again someday. If you like a good clean romance story you will enjoy. This is book 3 in the Christmas Traditions series.
