Australia Days Book Review & Giveaway: Secret Santo by Carla Caruso

Amazon USA Amazon UK Amazon Au

Review by Suze

Holly is a book blogger who works at a bookshop during the day. She's invited to a big publishing party and she can't wait to meet her favorite author there, AJ Ruffo. His thrillers are fantastic and she secretly dreams about this mysterious writer. At the party she meets Santo. He looks exactly like the AJ Ruffo from her dreams, but she can't be sure it's actually him. He tells her he's the author of the book she hated intensely and slagged off completely on her blog earlier that day. Holly really likes Santo, but will he still like her when he finds out what she wrote about the book?

Secret Santo is a sweet and romantic Christmas novella. I loved the fact that Holly is a blogger and that she's going to an event. She has a great time with Santo at the party and they immediately have a wonderful click. I really liked the flirty way they talk to each other. I especially enjoyed reading about how and where they would spend their Christmas. A party is already festive and Carla Caruso's vivid descriptions made it come to life straight away for me.

Secret Santo will definitely get you into the right Christmas mood. It has lovely main characters, it has a great setting and a merry atmosphere. Holly and Santo both have sparkling personalities and I liked their chemistry. This novella is fun and it made me cheerful. I think it's a fabulous Christmas read.

I will contact the winner via e-mail. If I don't get a reply within 60 hours the prize will go to someone else. All of my giveaways are international, you can find the official rules here.
