Starcrossed by Carla Caruso

Is love really written in the stars?

Fledgling romance author Simona Gemella is hoping the rugged wilderness of South Australia's Kangaroo Island will help reignite her creative spark after her husband walked out. 

She's joined her best friend, Nessie, on a health and wellness retreat at a mysterious old manor on the island, run by an astrology guru. 

Though Simona's sworn off men, she can't help being distracted by a dangerously handsome man with a scorpion tattoo - Denham Cobalt - who's also staying at the manor. Then strange things start to happen, including uncanny accidents and even a possible murder.

It all culminates at a masquerade party on the night of a total lunar eclipse. Will Simona survive - with her heart intact?




Hey! Here's My review.

An entertaining romantic suspense with a magical realism feel.

I'm not a huge horoscope reader, but I loved the way Carla wove astrology into the story. I related most to Simona and hoped that everything would work out for her. Denham had that tall dark and handsome, mysterious stranger vibe going on. I would love to go on a retreat to Kangaroo Island, but hopefully one that was less eventful than this one.
