11th August 2019
What a wonderful giveaway we have for you this week!!!
We have 10 copies (5 paper / 5 audible) of Venetian Blood (Murder in a Sensuous City) by Christine Evelyn Volker. Love a bit of a murder mystery set in the Lagoon City? Then this is for you!
Struggling to forget a crumbling marriage, Anna Lucia Lottol comes to Venice to visit an old friend, but instead of finding solace, she is dragged into a police station and accused of murdering a money-laundering count with whom she had a brief affair. In the days that follow, Anna, a US Treasury officer with brains and athleticism, fights to clear her name in a seductive city of watery illusions. But as she tries to pry clues from a cast of uncooperative characters, who implausibly deny what she sees and hears, she begins to question whether they are hiding something or she is losing touch with reality. Racing to unlock secrets, she unleashes a powerful foe bent on destroying her. Will she save herself and vanquish her enemies, including her darkest fears? Venetian Blood is the story of one woman’s brave quest for the truth – before it’s too late.
Venetian Blood won the 2017 Sarton Women’s Book Award in Contemporary Fiction.

Let’s talk VENICE! Share your top tips for Venice or tell us what you would love to see in the city! Gondolas, St Mark’s Square, the Doge’s Palace, Murano…? And have you been following the debate on the cruise ships that are allowed to travel through the Lagoon… they are causing so much damage to the infrastructure. Thoughts? Author David Hewson (who always has a strong setting for his novels) shares his #toptip for the city and suggests a visit to Frary’s, which has a wonderful backstory and is particularly great if you want something other than pizza/pasta. And according to him the Nani Moncegi is THE place for your bellinis and negrois!
