This book has two Christmas stories by Debbie Macomber.

~The first story, "There's Something About Christmas", is about Emma & Oliver & fruitcake. Emma is a reporter who has an assignment to write articles about women who have each created a fabulous fruitcake recipe. With the varying recipes (that the author includes in the story) I felt like making fruitcake can be a lesson in compromise. Emma tries to fight her attraction to Oliver because she is afraid she will be considered weak for falling for someone. If you are a dog lover you will like the side story with Emma & Oliver's respective pups! Also loved the part with Emma and the "guacamole"! This story is a cute read.

~The second story, "Here Comes Trouble", is about Maryanne & Nolan. The way the author wrote this story was interesting because the first and last part are set in the "present day" with the majority of the story detailing how they first met. Nolan was not my favorite character because he is wishy-washy and sometimes just plain confusing. He is blunt and bossy but this is how Maryanne makes major changes in her life. Her character is very optimistic about the new future she has in front of her and it is nice to see this character grow and find out who she is. This is an older story by Debbie Macomber and was a little too cutesy for me.

A nice set of Christmas related romance stories. My favorite was There's Something About Christmas- the chemistry between Oliver and Emma was great.

Contains two feel-good stories. Though written about Christmas, good any time of the year. The story, "There's Something about Christmas," is funny, and provides several very interesting fruit cake recipes. Even those who hate fruit cake will like this.

I enjoyed both stories in this 2 in 1 book. Both stories have a Christmas "theme" to them.
I liked the story about the reporter and the fruitcake contest the best.

The characters are well developed, the stories were hard to put down! =)

Christmas is a time for fruitcake. Rookie reporter Emma Collins hates fruitcake;for that matter, she hates Christmas, too. When three Washington State women are fiinalists in a national fruitcake contest, the story is assigned to her. That's bad enough. It gets worse when she has to fly in a small plane with a smart aleck piolt and his scruffy dog. In the end she meets three wise women, falls in love and learns There's Something About Chirstmas.

Two books in one.

From the back cover:

Here Comes Trouble:

This is a time for families, for togetherness, for memories. On Christmas Eve, Maryanne and Nolan Adams tell their kids the story they most want to hear- how Mom & Dad met and fell in love. It all started when they were reporters on rival Seattle papers...and next thing you know, Here comes Trouble!

And

There's Something About Christmas:

Christmas is also a time for...fruitcake. Rookie reporterEmma Collins hates fruitcake; for that matter, she hates Christmas, too. When three Washington State women are finalists in a national fruitcake contest, the story is assigned to her.That's bad enough. It gets worse when she has to fly in a small plane (scary!) with a smart-aleck pilot named Oliver Hamilton(sexy!) and his scruffy dog (cute!). In the end she meets three wise women, falls in love and learns There's Something About Christmas.

I really enjoyed both stories very much!
