About the Author

Carla Caruso was born in Adelaide, Australia, and only 'escaped' for three years to work as a magazine journalist and stylist in Sydney. Previously, she was a gossip columnist and fashion editor at Adelaide's daily newspaper, The Advertiser. She has since freelanced for titles including Woman's Day, Cleo and Shop Til You Drop.

These days, she writes fiction in between playing mum to twin sons Alessio and Sebastian, making fashion jewellery, and restoring
vintage furniture. Oh, plus checking her daily horoscopes, jogging, and devouring trashy TV shows!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet romance and YUMMY food!
By Mel | Mel&#39;s Bookshelf on 13 September 2018
Another Aussie author to watch! Carla Caruso has put together a beautiful story in 'The Right Place', a book about family, romance, and yummy FOOD!

Nella comes back to her hometown following the death of her beloved grandmother (or nonna) Esta. She has inherited the market garden and has come back to say a final goodbye before packing up the property and selling it. Unfortunately it is leased by her grumpy neighbour, twin brother of her first love, Adrian. However, when she starts to help him with his business, she discovers he may not be quite so grumpy after all. And in a side story - back in the 1950's, Esta, her husband, and daughter have moved to Australia. Not understanding English and being totally out of her comfort zone, she has to navigate her way through the transition to this foreign country, and deal with heartache along the way.

This book made me really hungry! It has Italian recipes throughout in between chapters which look amazing, and they also add a really homely atmosphere! They also relate to things that the characters were talking about or what they themselves were cooking in the book which I thought was really clever and added a new unique dimension. 

I thought the romance aspect was very sweet. The tension between the characters was palpable at times and I loved the history between them all. 

The past story of Esta I didn't find quite so engaging as the present story, but I still enjoyed it. Its interesting reading about the Italian culture and what life may have been like for those who were emigrating back in that time. 

Nella was a great character. She was strong willed and I really enjoy main characters that are grounded. I also really liked the twins. Both of them! Their interactions with Nella and amongst themselves were full of drama and I loved figuring out what was really going on.

Would I recommend The Right Place?
It was a great Australian/Italian romance with some family drama and beautiful Aussie scenery throughout. Would be perfect for a women's fiction fan, especially Australian women's fiction!

Many thanks to Harlequin via NetGalley for a copy of The Right Place to review.
