…It’s beginning to look a lot like murder…


A lavish party. An isolated mansion. Two hosts who will do anything to protect their secrets.

When husband and wife Henry and Claudine organise their firm’s Christmas party in a remote mansion, they expect it to be a night to remember.

But the festive mood quickly turns sour when a sinister gift is unwrapped in the Secret Santa gift exchange.

As heavy snow traps the guests inside the mountainside lodge it quickly becomes clear that one of the party is out for revenge.

It’s no longer just about enduring the evening. It’s about making sure you get out alive.

A lavish locked-room mystery with a seasonal edge, THE SECRET SANTA is packed with twists that will keep you guessing until the final page.



I read a lot of the books that are out for Christmas each year and they generally tend to be romantic stories so I was delighted to see latest release from Trish Harnetiaux, The Secret Santa and couldn’t wait to get started!

I thought that the pace for the book was great and the story held my attention from the outset right through to the ending, there were enough twists and turns to keep me entertained too and I thought it was a fab story.  The characters were well developed and they worked really well together.  I liked the setting for the book and it all worked really well.

It is 4 stars for me for this one, a great read for this time of year too – I liked the pace, writing style and the characters were great – highly recommended and a welcome twist on the normal Christmas reads out there!
