Secret Santo by Carla Caruso

Secret Santo by Carla Caruso

Holly Plume is a bookseller by day and a romance blogger by night, dishing out scathing reviews under her pseudonym, Sultry Scarlet. When she scores an invite to the publishing event of the year, Holly couldn't be more excited. Finally a chance to meet her favourite author, the mysterious thriller writer known only as AJ Ruffo.

When Holly literally falls into the arms of the mysterious and charming Santo Randolfi, she's sure it must be AJ. After all, Santo has tousled good looks, dark curls, luscious lips . . . He's exactly what she'd imagined. But when Santo reveals he's actually the author of a romance novel Holly recently slammed on her blog, keeping her online identity a secret becomes vital.

As Holly struggles to keep Santo from learning the truth, she realizes just how much she likes him. But when he discovers who she is, will their relationship be over before it's even begun?

Hey! Here's my review.

Jingle bells, jingle bells , here's a Christmas book
Oh what fun it was to read so come and take a look. Hey!

What a fun read. Short and sweet and kept me smiling the whole way through. At 54 pages, this Christmas themed romance would be a perfect read after lunch on Christmas day, just before your afternoon nap. 

The main character, Holly, is an introverted book loving blogger, who I found quite relatable (being an introverted book loving blogger myself). Every time a new character was introduced, I smiled a bit more as they all have Christmas themed names. The book was full of tongue in cheek humour. The romance was chaste, so suitable for all ages. Some people might call it a predictable corny romance, but that's exactly what I loved about it. Perfect for a short story.

I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

If you want to check out this book yourself, it's only a couple of dollars and you can find it on  Amazon
