The Fruitcake Challenge | Audiobook Review


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 fun Christmas read!

Lumberjack Tom Jeffries issues a fruitcake challenge, and though he comes across a little too cocky, cook Jo Christy cannot resist the opportunity to prove her fruitcake prowess. Of course, as she gets closer and closer to replicating his mother’s recipe, real feelings begin to grow.

Carrie Fancett Pagels’s The Fruitcake Challenge is an easy, entertaining listen. It offers a fun premise with an interesting historical setting and plenty of banter, and I could not help flying through the narrative. I enjoyed it, and I bet that other readers needing a quick, heartwarming audiobook will enjoy it, too.


I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
