Sometimes, to come clean, you've got to get your hands dirty ... The first in the Astonvale series.

Celeste Pretty, a self-confessed neat freak, has found the job she was born to do: a professional organiser, de-cluttering people's homes and workplaces. Her new business gets off to a cracking start when she lands her first client, health and fitness guru Natalia Samphire, in the well-heeled suburb of Astonvale. But things get messy at Natalia's mansion when Celeste finds a blackmail note and other mysterious items. And then there's Lenny Muscat, the sexy builder renovating the place, whose constant presence is muddling Celeste's usually organised brain.

When things get decidedly suspicious at the mansion, she and Lenny have to team up to investigate. But will Celeste emerge with her heart and professional reputation unscathed?

    Clean Up with Caruso's Celeste Pretty

    Fun loving characters populate Astonvale in a new series by Carla Caruso. Sparks fly and barbs are exchanged as Celeste Pretty and Lenny Muscat battle into romance. Celeste Pretty is turning 30 and starting her own organising business after leaving an interior design firm whose boss won't seem to get out of Celeste's life. Her first client is fitness guru Natalia Samphire. Natalia's home is being renovated by contractor Lenny Muscat who is not only handy but handsome, single and owns his own hilltop home. What more can a girl ask for, especially when he is wiling to help Celeste investigate Natalia's blackmailer? Looking forward to book 2 in this series. Will it feature biscuit heir Mitchell, or cake baker/nanny Betty Lou or one of the other interesting characters we meet in this novel?

    A Pretty Mess

    A Pretty Mess was easy to read and quite amusing at times. Characters mostly friendly, but also easy to figure out what they were up to. for any one wanting a light, easy to read book, try it.
