Book Review: Christmas with the Boss by Annie Seaton

Christmas with the Boss
Annie Seaton

Well here I am with my last Christmas read that was due in 2018. I did actually read this over the Easter break (only just reviewing it now) so I will count this toward achieving my goal of finishing my outstanding Christmas reads before Easter.

Publisher: Self published
Publication date: 7th October 2015
Pages: 130
Format Read: eBook
Source: Kindle freebie.

Jilly Henderson was looking forward to a week of bliss at the beach: alone, no work and no one to bother her.
The last thing she expected was to find her hunky boss holidaying in the beach shack next door.He looked mighty different to the uptight executive she was used to. He'd shed the suit and turned into a surf god.

Dominic is horrified that Jilly is living in the old shack. Rumour has it that it's haunted. He wants her to move but she digs in.

Can she ignore his charms...and who is the secret visitor who won't leave her in peace?

When Jilly unexpectedly runs into her boss during the Christmas holiday break, she finds he’s not the ice-man they all think he is back in the office.

Dominic has met his match with fiery Jilly. This is definitely not the same quiet woman he works with.

All the descriptions of the trip from Sydney to the mid North Coast town of Sandy Heads were so familiar and when it is set in an area you know and love it makes the story so much more connected.

Christmas with the Boss was an absorbing Christmas novella with a cheeky paranormal element. Seaton writes humour, suspense and passion with equal fervour.

My rating 10/10
