Summary

Love cute Christmas stories and sweet holiday romances? From the author of Kindle Unlimited All-Star winner Sweet Hollow Women and cozy mystery Murder at Mistletoe Manor comes a festive novella that will warm your heart.

At just 25 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 audiobook.

When she is confronted with the realities of the job she is blindsided and wants to quit but has to fulfill the obligations of her job before she can quit and while doing that she discovers that she indeed loves her new job
she discovers that the stuffy reporter she had been warned about was actually quite nice and very cute and when he asked her out to dinner she gladly accepts, so in the addition of her new job will the possibility of a new romance also be in the air.

Cute

Audiobook book.

This story was short but sweet. Elinor has a new job and is moving to the magical town of snowflake valley. Her new job involves finding the heart of the town. An advice column sounded like an easy task but Elinor soon realised she’s going to need to dig around for some of the answer.

With romance and a loveable town, this is a fun story.

I will definitely be reading more by this author.

Very entertaining

Such a cute story. The narration was great. I loved the hint of Trudys ghost still watching Elenor at the paper. Every so often a little bit comedic wit was thrown in. I could see a group of women sitting at the cafe gossiping over the Fairy column. I would pass this song to friends for a easy listen.

Short and sweet

This was a quick listen! The story was easy to follow and was a good meet-cute novella. I laughed out loud as I listened. Elinor was a quirky 25 year old still trying to find herself and what better place to do that than Snowflake Valley. Great starter job for young adult making her way into the world.

Jeannette Smith made a great Elinor. Jeannette gave Elinor personality. A nice reprieve from the more emotional books I have been reading.

Small town chick lit novella

Also available in KU.

This novella was my first listen from Holly Tierney-Bedord. At just under two hours it’s a quick listen with several moments of levity. Most of it revolving around Elinor’s adventures of settling in to life in Snowflake Valley and reading letters from townspeople seeking advice. It required a little suspension of reality (small town weekly advice columnist is not a full time job), letting that go it was a cute story. It will be best enjoyed by those understanding that the romance is a small percentage of the story.

Jeannette Smith’s narration is perfect for the age of the main character and she does a good job of giving each of the townspeople their own unique sound.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Is the real Snowflake Valley to much for Elinor?

The Snowflake Valley Advice Fairy by Holly Tierney-Bedord is a sweet little romance to read.

Is the real Snowflake Valley to much for Elinor?

Elinor and Nile
Elinor is the main character and is the new Snowflake Valley's Advice Fairy named Merry the Fairy. She is trying to figure out how to connect with the townspeople that are more real and not so festive like they are at the festivals. Elinor is a great character as she is trying to make this work but isn't feeling it. Until Elinor gets some good ideas and maybe sees what the townspeople think of the new advice fairy.

Nile is the male love interest and is a reporter. He is a complex character who doesn't want to let anyone in until Elinor comes along and changes his mind. Nile is also essential for Elinor, and I like how their little romance came through. I think that Nile is a charming guy but doesn't want anyone to see it as he has been hurt before. However, what he does to help Elinor out is adorable.

Narrator
I think that Jeannette Smith did a fabulous job of narrating this story. She did each voice for every character very well. I love it. Ms. Smith did a fantastic job, and I look forward to "ear reading" or listening to another book that she narrates.

Five Stars
The Snowflake Valley Advice Fairy by Holly Tierney-Bedord is worthy of this five-star rating and a recommendation. It's a perfect book to either listen to or read. It's a great romance, and I love the newspaper feel of it. Ms. Tierney-Bedord is a great author, and I love reading, or in this case, listening to her books. Elinor and Nile are two great characters, especially with their older coworkers. Their coworkers don't believe that these two millennials are going to do a great job at being a reporter and advice fairy.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy from the author. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Thank you for dropping by! I hope you enjoyed this audiobook review of The Snowflake Valley Advice Fairy by Holly Tierney-Bedord.

Until the next time,

Small town fun

When you are in need of a job, and the advice column for the local paper comes up, Elinor grabs a hold of it. After all, how hard can it be to give people advice? Not only is she living in the shadow of long time guidance giving Trudy, but the name change of the column also raised some eyebrows. Does she have enough experience to give help to those in need? This quirky listen is fun and witty. I loved the women cackling and the ghost of Trudy overseeing her. But the best was the advice she finally gave! It's a good, comforting listen and Jeannette Smith does it justice.
