Tour: Snowy Encounters by Clarissa Yip (Guest Post)

Please welcome author, Clarissa Yip!

Assistance needed for Holidays!

Are you counting down till Christmas? Is your shopping done? Did you get everything you need? Are you having guests over? Are you cooking? Did you remember to pick up the wine?
The holidays tend to stress everyone out no matter how much a person enjoys the season. You want to make it special for everyone yet you’re trying to stay sane.
So far, my Christmas shopping is done. Cards have been sent out and presents are wrapped—at least most of them. Then I worry about if I forgot someone or someone is going to hate what I bought them. I walk the mall and end up buying more stuff. There goes the budget. Guest list is a nightmare. No idea what I’m eating for the holidays or how many people are coming over. The
It’s frustrating!
If only I had an elf who would make sure everything is done for me and make it the best Christmas ever! Maybe if I were an event planner, my life would be so much easier! But I’m not…
Maddy from Snowy Encounters is an event planner! An excellent one, I swear! She organizes wonderful parties, makes events shine, and put together galas and even excels at decorating! (I know this for sure since she’d decorated a large Christmas tree at Cole’s lodge and its beautiful!) For a city girl returning to the small town, she sure knows how to dress with her stiletto boots and short skirts! Fashionable and beautiful! When her ex-husband is in need of a party planner and decorator, how could he resist not enlisting her services? She even puts up the whole plastic Santa and reindeer that Cole hated, and made it look magical! The holidays are about family and warmth and being able to enjoy yourself, to be grateful for all you have.
Now if only I can do some magic with my house… Trust me, I’ll be the one tangled in Christmas lights and falling off the roof if I had to climb up there…
The holidays are usually so wonderful, but when you have so many tasks to bog you down, it can become overwhelming.
How are you dealing for the holidays? Do you have elves that will come help you? What more do you have to do to make this holiday special?

Ever since her divorce, successful Event Planner Maddy Glover dreads visiting her hometown. For the first time in three years, she returns home for the holidays and finds herself caught at the end of an avalanche. Only to be rescued by the one man she’s determined to avoid: her ex-husband. Ambitious and desirable Cole Harmon lives to rebuild the town and to forget the woman who hadn’t believed he had enough to offer her—until Maddy shows up in her cute city-slicker attire and sexy black boots. In need of a decorator for the holidays, he hires his ex-wife to help, only to be thrown into dark buried memories and snowy encounters that may thaw the ice between them. Will their love rekindle or will Maddy walk away once again?
