The Fruitcake Challenge

Loved the historic details

By Serena B. Miller 
Author Serena B. Miller
This review is from: The Fruitcake Challenge (Christmas Traditions Book 3) (Kindle Edition)

The author clearly did her research on this story--the details are spot on. Found out in the author's note in the back that her grandfather actually ran a lumber camp. It is a lovely, sweet story that quickly pulled me into the culture of an 1800's lumber camp....and made me want to stay.

CFP: Thank you SO much, Serena, for this lovely review and endorsement of my novella! This means so much coming from such a talented author who has also published lumber camp stories!

Endorsement for "The Fruitcake Challenge" - Review by Julie Lessman


The Fruitcake Challenge (Christmas Traditions Book 3) (Kindle Edition)

When it comes to cooking up delectable romance, Carrie Fancett Pagels is quickly becoming a chef extraordinaire in the Christian market, and her latest “dish”—The Fruitcake Challenge—is downright delicious!

With a plot as fresh as the fruitcakes baked by the ladies of the Christy logging camp, romance is in the air when a handsome new logger dares the camp’s pretty cook to “bake a fruitcake like my mother’s, and I’ll propose.” Toss in a hint of mischief and a whole lot of sass, and the challenge is on! And so is the fun with a delightful Christmas story so sweet, you’ll be savoring it long after the last bite.

CFP: Thanks, Julie, for such a sweet review!!!
