About the Book:
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!
A narrator can easily make or break a read, and in this case the narrator did a wonderful job making this a super enjoyable listen. She did a great job with both the male and female voices. Her lively energy kept me invested and wanting to see how everything would unfold
The story had interesting characters and and endearing, fun plot. I could picture it being a Christmas movie. It was a light read with plenty of humor. Unfortunately my favorite part would involve a spoil so I won’t share it here, but it certainly brought a smile to my face. If you know me, I don’t typically read Christmas stories but I actually enjoyed this one. I think others would enjoy it as well.
