The Snowflake Valley Advice Fairy
At just twenty-five years old, Elinor has landed the job of her dreams: She’s going to be Merry the Advice Fairy for the Snowflake Valley Gazette. She’s ecstatic that she’s about to embark on a fun, cushy career while living in the cutest, quaintest town she’s ever known.
She’s barely settled into her desk at work when that famous Snowflake Valley shimmer starts to fizzle. The real Snowflake Valley bears little resemblance to the picture postcard tourist destination she and her family loved when she was a child. Her new co-workers are uninspiring, to say the least, and the problems that people are submitting to the Gazette are much weightier than what she was expecting.
Losing faith in herself, Elinor considers cutting her losses and moving on. However, the attention of hot young reporter Nile might be enough to get her past her chilly start in Snowflake Valley, and back to seeing its charm once again.
This is a novella length book.
“It’s Snowflake Valley. It’ll make you a little crazy.”
Young Elinor romps into the Snowflake Valley Gazette to take on her first job. She remembers Snowflake Valley as the “happiest place on the planet.” Her eagerness is dampened when she learns more about her writing job. She is taking over for the paper’s former “agony aunt” and the editor gives her one week to handlefive problem letters. The old biddies at the Gazette office are no help at all. But a young reporter, Nile, reaches out to her.
The letters and problems that Elinor receives are a hoot.
But Elinor takes her responsibility to really help others seriously.
“Welcome to small town life,” Nile said. “It’s unique but it grows on you.”
Although the story takes place near Christmas, it’s not really a Christmas story so you can read it any time during the year when you are in the mood for a cute, sweet, surprising, entertaining read. Author Holly Tierney-Bedord’s writing has definitely grown on me!
